I know a retired LEO who told me that he recently went to Philips Arena for a show. When he was standing in line a security guard was asking women to open their purses and everyone to empty their pockets. They were not using metal detectors. When they got to him he told the security guard that he had a gun in his pocket and that he was a retired LEO. He said that the security guard looked kinda shocked and told him to wait. A little while later a real LEO arrived and checked his ID, wrote his seat number and name down, and allowed him to enter the arena. There is no real point to this post, just thought I'd share.
