UPDATE: You never know who’s watching. Vigilant videographer Garret Ean captured the moment with his video camera. The video is so funny, I made it a GIF:
While I was walking away from the event, one girl standing outside a Mexican restaurant, said, “We know your’e filming us right now.” I responded, “Actually, I’m not. Should I be?” I got out my camera and began recording. The girl who commented to me disappeared, as did another boy, James Michael Phillips. He’s the man who hospitalized another person for using chalk. They both weren’t brave enough to make their comments on camera. One boy however, who has since been identified as Justin Paquette, taunted, “Nice PURSE! And PINK shorts.” When I began recording him, however, he wasn’t so courageous. He came up to my camera and twice tried to grab it from me, but he was too slow. I look forward to one day living in a world where adults can walk down the street without being harassed for the clothing they wear or the purses they carry. I will model adult behavior for those who missed the lesson during their upbringing. It starts with keeping your hands to yourself.
