Accosted by Bally Hotel Security in Las Vegas

Does this look like the face of a criminal? 

I was in Las Vegas for the Democratic debate and stayed at the Bally Hotel. I will never stay at this property again and advise others to avoid it. I left my room to go to the debate scene and had the sign I carry at such events turned upside down by my feet because I wanted to avoid attracting attention to it. Before exiting I was accosted by two security guards who treated me VERY rudely, repeatedly demanding what I was doing, where I was staying (multiple times) and speaking in a very demeaning way. This was supposed to be guest hospitality? It was very unpleasant.

I went back to my room after deciding I would wait a few more hours before going to the public area outside the Paris Hotel. Before leaving my room later I called security to ask for an escort from the building so I would not encounter the same situation again. A security guard was posted to my room and walked with me to the exit. He reported back to security electronically every 30 seconds as to where we were as we walked to the exit as if he were escorting a convict to court or jail.

A big Thumbs Down to Bally.
