What made that seem a little bit overboard was that they admitted it was a case by case basis. That in some events they don't even take the silverware away. But that in a latino event they were just to much of a threat to him so they had to take them away. Them saying that this is normal and then saying that it's case by case is kinda contradicting. The fact is it isn't normal it is only during certain events that they feel are more dangerous. Do I sense some racial profiling?
