Ah, the mall security guard: the only thing standing between kids and all the evil paedophiles lurking in the shadows! So taking photos of your own family makes you a filthy child molester? Following this fucked-up logic, with all the CCTV cameras they have pointing at the public, can we now accuse the UK government of the same? Burn the bastards for looking at our precious children!!
According to his blog, Kevin visited the Bridges Shopping Centre in Sunderland with his son to spend the £10 his father gave the boy on a family visit. While there, he seated his son on a coin-operated train ride and snapped a photo of him with his cameraphone. At this point, a Bridges security guard came by and ordered him to stop taking pictures. He said that it was mall policy, and implied that Kevin was taking pictures because he was a paedophile. Kevin told him that this was ridiculous and took his son to find his wife and get out of the mall. He also took a picture of the security guard “so that if I later wanted to make a complaint to the centre I would be able to identify him.”
