    Isn't it ironic....

    A Washington D.C. reporter was doing a story on how security guards and Union Station are telling people they can't take photos there. While interviewing the chief spokesperson for Amtrak at Union Station who said that there are no rules against photography at the Amtrak station, a security guard comes up and tells them to turn the camera off.

    It's a pretty serious subject, but I irony in the story is pretty funny. I wonder if someone lost there job after this.

    I wonder if photographers can sue over stuff like this?

    OK so the spokesperson was caught out, and the guards don't allow photography.
    He won't lose his job.
    Because his company would allow it if the guards didn't stop you
