An interesting conclusion, is Florida the police state capital of the world? Not as to law enforcement officer but a state of mind.
Today I was at Aventura mall taking pictures of the Christmas decorations. I took hundreds of pictures. A long time young beautiful friend tapped me and made a kidding comment. Gave her a hug and kiss and talked for about an hour. After we departed our own ways and I was taking a picture of a hanging ornament from the ceiling. I was approached by an over zealous security guard that I was not allowed to take pictures of the stores. I told her I wasn’t. I was taking pictures of the christmas decorations. She said to take pictures of someone else to be taking pictures. I press the issue and she walked away. I continued to take pictures of the christmas decorations. Other guards walked by and no problem. Just to let you know I was not using a phone camera but a real camera with lenses that can zoom in on a person across a football field length wise. This is not the first time this has happened. In palm beach a policeman stopped me and I was taking a picture of the beautiful architecture of its city hall. The arch. My wife and I were almost arrested. But his partner told him to leave us be.
I have been to two communist countries and one war zone. And all over the world and never been stop. Also I took pictures openly in the US capital and Supreme Court. No one stop me. And there they have snippers targeting you.
What happened to the land of the free. I am proud of my country. So what is happening in Florida? Are they seceding from the union:-).
