The Irony is Just Amazing

Really. A reporter decided to do a story about photographers getting hassled at Union Station. As those in the area are likely aware, there's been a rash of hassling folks trying to take pictures by various people claiming that the area in question is forbidden for picture taking. This would be sort of understandable were these places not all, you know, open to the public. So how is a person with a camera more or less dangerous than a person with a purse? Not sure, but apparently in some places it is. Anyhoo, the reporter - wait for it - got hassled. For taking pictures. While interviewing an Amtrak representative who was explaining that picture taking is allowed in Union station.
