    They were given advanced notice. No one was forced to do anything.

    If I walk up to you, display a weapon I'm carrying then hold my hand out and say, "you know what this is", it's a robbery. No specific words required. In Texas, as long as someone is threatened or placed in fear while in the course of committing theft, it's robbery. Were those guards armed? That makes it aggravated robbery. Why do you suddenly want to minimize the crime those guards committed?

    Mike was married on February 14, 1985, to Shani Garza.[1] He underwent shoulder surgery on August 22, 1985, due to an injury suffered during a wrestling tour of Israel; he was involved in a tag match against Hernandez and Adams with his brother Kevin when his shoulder "went out." He was released from the hospital in good condition, but four days later he developed a fever of 107 degrees. He was later diagnosed with toxic shock syndrome, a rarity among men; it is theorized that this resulted from his surgery, which was performed by Dr. Stonie R. Cotton at Brookhaven Hospital in Dallas, Texas.

    It's pretty brutal. I worked with a woman who got it from tampons, and they thought she had a simple flu, but then all of her bodily systems started to shut down one by one, and she literally almost died. She was in the hospital for at least a month IIRC.

    That's fine for an honest-to-god physical security threat. I was actually surprised to learn that Texans can walk in there carrying guns.

    There is no excuse for stealing personal hygiene products in an environment that permits civillians to carry firearms.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Really? What kind of advanced notice? Signs? Public announcements? A blurb on their web site? What?

    An announcement, prior to people entering the event.

    I very sincerely doubt that anybody had a firearm either presented to or aimed at them. Police openly carry, and the fact that a police officer is talking to you is not an excercise of force.

    They were given a choice -- allow the police to steal their personal property or be denied their rights.

    You think this was done randomly?

    Could you perhaps point me to where I could read about that? I'd rather not take your word for it.

    I'm sure it wasn't, but that doesn't make it right.
