Government Hires Armed Rent-A-Cops To Keep Citizens Away From Independence Hall

October 10, 2013 by  

The video below shows private security guards keeping citizens away from Independence Hall.

The guards were spotted by activist and filmmaker Craig Bergman of Gadsden Films, who was in Philadelphia to film interviews for an upcoming documentary about IRS abuses.

As he approached Independence Hall with a camera crew in tow, Bergman was unable to get Park Service officials on site to answer his questions about security. Remarkably, one of the hired guards informed Bergman that he would be arrested if he approached the National historical site. Others simply refused to speak to him.

Park Service police who later arrived at the beckoning of the private guards eventually answered some of Bergman’s questions. One officer informed him that if he tried to get near Independence Hall, he could possibly get a citation.

Your tax dollars at work.
