    if it is actually against security measures to be on the floor like that. I mean, I have walked into banks before with my hood up and been asked immediately to remove it (i understand these are different scenarios, its more that I can understand rules of no hoods up in high security areas). I can def see it being a rule and him being asked to take it off as legit. Even if everyone knew who he was because that is the security rule.

    I wouldnt be surprised and it doesnt effect the point he was trying to make. It may be an over sensitive rule and it prob didnt need everyone to jump up and freak out...

    but to suggest that the security didnt know who it was there, I mean... thats just stupid.

    The threat to our way of life comes from corporations, and the solution is to shrink corporations while freeing government from corporate control.
