An e-mail, unsent. As of now.
I have decided to be the bigger person and let it go. However, should I be accosted and accused of “illegal activity” again, I will not be as forgiving.
I do have a question or two to ask: since when does covering one’s face make one “suspicious?” If you’re serious about “criminal activity,” I suggest you pay a little more attention to the business, corporate, and political world—criminals of the highest order who rarely, if ever, cover their faces. Seriously.
If covering one’s face is indicative of criminality, would you accost and accuse say, a Muslim woman, of being a criminal, a thief, for simply walking down your halls?
I do expect answers to these questions, if you would be so kind.
And, finally, just for your information, I wasn’t doing anything wrong. I was simply leaving the school doctor’s office about to go home for lunch. If your “interest,” as you put it, is “protecting the students and employees of the College,” you certainly failed at that by alienating me, making me feel like a criminal in my own school. Do you really think someone seriously interested in committing theft, or any other “illegal activity,” would walk right by the security booth? This is a rhetorical question, but answer it if you can. Believe me: the school has nothing that I would be even remotely interested in stealing.
Do forward my previous message, and this one if you like, to the school principal. The ignorance and stupidity of your security staff should be a concern to the administration of the school.
P.S. You misspelled “bandanna.”
