I was harassed by security for taking this photo. Here is what happened! I took the above photo and upon stepping off the elevator, I filmed the doors closing Put the camera back in the case and rang the elevator. As I was stepping in the elevator I heard a voice from behind me saying excuse me sir. I turned around and it was a security guard. He asked me if I worked for the mall. I said I didn't and then he tells me that photography is prohibited in the mall and I apologized. Here is where he steps out of line. He demands that I delete any photos I took in the mall (If my friend that lives in Atlanta was not with me I would have risen a big stink but I did not want to get him a trespassing order) I proceeded to say damn, the camera didnt work, he then asked for me to show him some photos which i did just to shut him up. I showed him some old photos and that seemed to please him and then he stepped out of the elevator door and let the elevator go.
To me this is also false imprisonment due to the fact that he was standing in the elevator door and would not let us out or the elevator depart until I showed him my camera. So Simon properties, if you see this, your security guards are CLEARLY breaking the law!
