It is. But my whole point was, if you live there. Let the door close, tap in on your own with the fob to be done with the whole matter.

Instead of going through the trouble, hassle, and effort to pull out your phone and start recording. All these other folks can't see the simplicity of that.

Furthermore, if you have a chip on your shoulder, and you misinterpret something that can be plausible, that's your own fault - not another person's fault.
I'm assuming neither of us are that ethnicity, but I can imagine how tiresome it would be to be questioned more often than others. Not sure how it wouldn't get at anyone after a while, that constant harassment, whether or not justified. Ppl need more compassion and understanding where others are coming from.

Of course it would. But in this case we're dealing with a private residence. It would be completely different if he was just walking along the street and suddenly getting questioned.

End of the day, would you rather:
a) spend 10 seconds - let the door close, allow yourself in and be on your way...stress free, without any angst; or
b) waste your precious evening time - forcing yourself through the doorway behind someone else, and have to continue to deal with all that attitude that you're clearly not in the mood for.

It's pretty easy.

Ya, but you're not African. Cmon, East Asians have it much easier.

That's the very logical road, but maybe the dude was having a bad day, got questioned many times also, all the pent-up frustration from past encounters. Can't you see his side, how would you like being questioned to enter into your own home? Anyway, there's no real right answer, just how diff ppl would have handled it.

There is no right or wrong answer. There is only escalation or de-escalation. He chose to escalate. It's that simple.

Sure, I personally would've done what you suggested because I'm virtually never subjected to this stuff, but, again, if you were asked countless times for proof to enter into your own home, you might be offering a different view.

And now the lady lost her job... Wonder who was in the wrong Thinking Face. If your not law enforcement, security, my employer, or my parents, I don't have to answer to you. So GTFO the way.

That's what happens when ppl can't sympathize and put themselves in other ppl's shoes. The woman shouldn't have been fired but should've handled it w/ kid gloves because the target is obviously very sensitive to these types of prejudicial checks (regardless if she herself had no ill-intent), and the guy shouldn't have over-reacted either.

Didn't know you lived in a front lobby/hallway? If you live in a condo,HOA, gated community, etc, leave the security to security guards that are paid for by your fees and are more qualified than you! If you feel uncomfortable then call the security and report it. Did Trayvon die nothing?

I guess you're the type that will just watch someone drown and leave the saving to life guards even if you could swim and was right there able to save a life. :facepalm:

What a foolish statement. Are you really comparing someone in need of urgent help, in a life and death situation, to someone who "possibly" should not be where they are? You are delusional.

What bothers me is that people automatically assume that her actions were "racist" simply because she was white and he black, without any supporting evidence.
