A television news crew was conducting a segment about how photographers’ rights are being violated at Union Station in Washington DC when a security guard ordered them to turn their cameras off.

Ironically, the man they were interviewing at the time was the Amtrak head spokesman who was informing them that there is no policy in place that forbids photographers from filming or photographing inside the historical train station.

When asked, the security guard was unable to explain why they were not allowed to film inside the station, which is one of the busiest – and most picturesque – terminals in the United States.
