    If it was not done randomly, then why was it done?

    I don't particularly care. They were allowing people with guns to walk in, but they were refusing to allow people to keep tampons. The staggering inconsistency is all I can see.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

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

    Also, you forgot to respond to the rest of my post. Do they clearly announce -- either with a sign, or with regular PA announcements, or on their web site -- the kinds of things they will be taking? Because they do, and those jackasses in the capital didn't. Thanks for playing.
    Your hyperbole and misrepresentation of what I said means little. So addressing it would be at the minimum, a waist of my time.

    What if it was done because security had been alerted to a possible disturbance planned and involving tampons?

    I still don't care. They were allowing people with guns to walk in, but they were refusing to allow people to keep tampons. The staggering inconsistency is all I can see.

    But you yourself said it what happened here was force.

    Again, I ask, why are you trying to minimize the actions of the guards if you believe they were engaged in illegal behavior? Why would you give these terrible thugs the benefit of the doubt that they did not use their weapons?

    I'll try one more time:

    What if it was done because security had been alerted to a possible disturbance planned and involving tampons specifically?

    I absolutely agree...

    Since dishonesty seems to be your policy, I will leave you alone.

    Have a good one.
