Re: Harrassed in Miami by Metrorail Chief of Security

There's no law against being disrespectful to someone who is disrespecting you.

You are absolutely correct. However, after reading HarryP's account of the situation, I am unable to determine the extent of the employee's "disrespectfulness" towards him. For example, if the employee was raising his voice in a threatening tone, I can agree with the reaction of yelling back in a negative manner. However, if the employee just happened to say "what are you taking pictures of?" in a slightly forceful manner, then I would probably have said "who wants to know?" (a classic Caz Dolowicz line), and then after he identified himself, would have then said "just the trains, is there anything wrong?"

Since neither of us were there, we are unable to determine how any of us would have reacted to the employee. And until I learn the rank of the employee, I would treat them the same way I would treat a police officer.
