Yes, english is my first language. You still haven't explained how this was a sad commentary, which was my point way back when. Just because YOU know you weren't doing anything untoward up there doesn't mean that everyone else does. Next time you get on a plane, how bout they just let everyone board without going through security if they promise they aren't going to do anything bad. It seems that it all boils down to the signage, because you've mentioned it repeatedly. Since they stopped you after you had already left, you got to do whatever it is you wanted to do up there, so I'm not sure what the problem is. If it has perturbed you so, write a letter and let the city know there are no signs or this will happen to the next person and your whole experience has been in vain.

Well - if the airport do not have any signs "security" et cetera, and there wasn't a need for tickets because the airplane ride was free (and was domestic so it didn't involve any customs), then it would be more likely to assume such a comparison as relevant.

Next thing - have you even wondered about the reason for calling the police? What part of that place did require a police to check up on him? If it was an area just similar to the other part - that was a museum - then there shouldn't have been a difference. And if it was an area that had a significantly different security need - how come the area then did not have a significantly different protection? Closed gate? Specific signs? If the only thing they worried about was destruction of property, then that destruction of property must be similarly likely to the part that is a museum with public access...

I'm done with this. He got stopped AFTER he had already done whatever it is he wanted to do and there were no signs that indicated he shouldn't be there. Nothing happened, his card and camera weren't taken, so that's the end of it. I have no problem understanding how a guy with a camera traipsing around what was once a military installation, could appear suspicious to someone. Especially when the area is off-limits, even though signage didn't indicate this.

I've never been stopped but if I were I would just point out that if I had bad intentions I wouldn't be walking around with a slr and tripod as you stand out... kind of the opposite of what someone wants if their up to no good.

Just don't get caught. That's really what it comes down to. I think you need to work on your ninja skills.
