OK, so we have this report coming via a friend of a friend...
Sorry, folks, but let's NOT jump to conclusions, and let's NOT immediately assume the worst based on what is now about a third or fourth-hand, one-side-only report of an interaction.
There is FAR too much pertinent information missing to draw any sort of concrete conclusions about what happened, what the goals were, and how this proves, beyond a shadow of a doubt, the nefarious nature of this bureaucratic entity.
To put it bluntly, we don't know jack about what REALLY happened.
