Four Hour "Voluntary Encounter" alleged

If you don't want to talk, be sure to express that when you're invited to a 'consensual encounter'.


AMC movie theater calls “federal agents” to arrest a Google Glass user

I ended up communicating with the author of the story and have posted it here for everyone to read…
Feds Interrogate Man Wearing Google Glass in Movie Theater

Over and over and over again.”
This Google Glass user went to the movies. Then he got interrogated for about four hours.

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency's spokesperson maintains that Ungureanu was never detained during the four hour encounter and would have been free to go at any time had he chosen to do so.

No video was found on his 'Glass or on his phone.

I don't want to accuse anyone of a lack of reading skills, so I'll just politely point to the original post where, at the bottom it says - -
The Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency's spokesperson maintains that Ungureanu was never detained during the four hour encounter and would have been free to go at any time had he chosen to do so.

A spokesman for the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (the specific department of Homeland Security that were called in) told the Washington Post that "On Jan. 18, special agents with ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations and local authorities briefly interviewed a man suspected of using an electronic recording device to record a film at an AMC theater in Columbus.

"The man, who voluntarily answered questions, confirmed to authorities that the suspected recording device was also a pair of prescription eye glasses in which the recording function had been inactive. No further action was taken."
