The whole story sounds made up or exaggerated.

As we walk by the first building which is their administration office, an old school, built in 1912 which I've photographed many times as it is a very cool looking building a man runs out of the building screaming " WHAT THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU'RE DOING".
Startled I turn around and I ask, umm excuse me? He screams what the hell are you doing taking pictures of the school. I said I didn't take one damn picture of the school, what the hell are you talking about?

?? i am completely baffled by the comparison of a proud father going to his son's school play with photography equipment and a psych patient who opens fire on school children. How is this even remotely similar? I am sure also that other parents knew the OP as the "father of..." just as I know and am known by the school principal, teachers and parents and children in my sons' and daughter's classes.
When he first yelled "what do you think you are doing" why not just answer him...."taking pictures"; then raise your camera and get a shot of him.

The appropriate response was "Go fck yourself!", followed by walking away.
Agreed that the "if you have nothing to hide" thing is absolutely ridiculous.
Id have also added a smack in the face.
