Come ON, people

This is the guard who was the only security at the Freedom Tower*’s South Lobby when those base jumpers snuck in.

Abdul Basher was his union’s “Security Officer of the Year” for 2013

“Sometimes I cannot recognize people, stairs,” Basher said. “That post was so hard to cover for me. It was very, very stressful. I could barely see half of the lobby.”

I don’t even blame the guy. Fire the person who promoted him.

(*Oh, gag.)
