I can't say I see all the subtle details.

Unknown unknowns for me,regarding guarding another person.

That said, a sperg from South Africa probably has legit security vs. the average American giga billionaire

Elon's not a small guy or a pussy either.  I'd bet money he's armed.  I'd assess him as someone I needed to use a weapon on immediately as well.

I'm surprised the .gov hasn't raided him and found child porn on his laptop, a laptop that he doesn't even own

And some top secret .gov documents since it seems like everyone has them laying around their house

24/7 armed security, depending on region, is about $500,000.

If I was the second richest guy in the world, I wouldn't feel comfortable paying my security guys only 500k per year for 24x7 protection...

No way you're getting actual 24/7 armed security for that. Even at 3 per shift, 8 hrs each, that's 9 guys. 100k/yr is cheap for competent experienced guys. 100k gets you a tough looking meat head.

Like was already noted they don't look like they know what they are doing.  For the money he's paying I would expect ex Secret Service, US Marshals or tier-1 folks.  People that have years of experience & training doing protection details.

Far more than that if they travel with him.
I went to high school with the head of Celine Dion’s security detail. 2 decades ago he was making more than double that including an expense account and per diems while on the road.

How is a rich dude to judge competency?

He's relying on someone else, who also is not likely involved in that world, to hire guys who only have to bull shit well enough and look the part, to get hired.

How is a machine shop guy from the Midwest going to judge competency?

I’m familiar with a real world security detail for an actual billionaire and know numerous people employed there.

You are talking about a big endeavor with site and personal security. Think about employing an HR person, two project managers, probably four or more people on duty at the fixed site alone 24/7, the lowest paid guys at the fixed site at more than $50/hour, bonuses, vehicles, travel…

Many millions of dollars per year.

well at least he's taking things seriously.
I remember watching a video of him awhile back where he was outside just standing in front of his car on the street
It would have been so easy for someone to come up and pop him or run him over. At least now he's got guys watching over him and they're actively scanning for threats

Ah, the glamorous world of Executive Protection

Like roaming the tampon aisle at the Walgreens on the Vegas strip at 0300, clutching the torn off end of a box trying to match brands for the client's trophy wife or mistress

Say no to a clients wife and you better be ready to get down and suck better than she does or else your ass WILL be on the next plane  (or bus) home

One of those security dudes was an extra in the last John Wick film. In the hotel scenes.

He’s probably an ex-SEAL teamer. Natural movie stars.

I have a friend that worked for him last year. He is a reserve swat cop and did it for 6 months but the travel was too much. All others are either ex seals or green berets. He said they don't fuck around.

Also they make a lot more than 100k a year each.

Do you have me confused with another poster?  Not sure where the hostility is coming from

Eta: m
Maybe I was not paying attention during the part of class where they train the entire detail facing the same direction. Is that some hsld stuff you guys hold close to the vest?

I said it would cost much more than 500k.
