I find more merits to the "driver's license" ordeal than to this, though. At least with the license, it was a legitimate issue of identification. What, for instance, is going to stop someone from wearing a skimask for their license photo? I mean, I see both sides, but the law enforcement position there at least makes sense.
For this, I don't see why alternative accomodations or an exception couldn't have been made. Why did she have to remove it in front of a man? COuldn't they have found a woman guard who was available?
This just seems unnecessary to me.
