On the other hand it’s pretty creepy that a mere camera elicits this kind of response. The intimidation methods employed are also pretty suspect. At one point one of the security guards reaches into his breast pocket clearly trying to give the impression that he is reaching for a weapon. (Whether he was is not clear.) That is not OK.

Remember, this is just a kid with an iPhone.

It is also interesting to note that once security realizes the kid is well versed in his rights their tone changes considerably.
