    Apparently, a group of teenagers thought I was recording them as I was standing on the escalator behind them. Once I finally got to the lemonade stand in the food court, of them approached me and said "Aye, were you recording us?" So I said "No, why would you think that?" and he went on to explain that somene told them that they "saw" me recording them. So at this point the other dudes in the group were getting riled up, talking about "Oh, let's beat his ass!" etc. Causing a big scene in the food court, so I start to get nervous. I was literally thinkin, how the fuck is this happening to me? I don't know what they thought my angle was, cause one of them shouted "He's wearing a wire!" So maybe they thought I was with the police or something. But then maybe they thought I was gay and sneaking pictures of them. I dunno, but it freaked me out and eventually mall security had to escort me tomy car cause they were threatening to kill me. Still a little shaken up.

    Don't put too much thought into it. There are a lot of shit heads out there. And sometimes they'll make stuff up as an excuse to start shit. Or to see how you'll react. Pretty common at straight bars.. "Were you looking at my girl?!"

    So when you see teens/people grouped together, it's pretty safe to assume they're gonna start shit. Because they're too chicken to do anything if they were by themselves.

    Next time just start screaming at the top of your lungs 'Help Help Police' over and over .... especially in a crowded place like a mall ... they would have taken off running. Maybe it would be a little embarrassing, but it is better being safe then sorry.

    Sometimes people like to begin fights but you didn't get hurt so that's good, and you handled yourself the best you could. Unfortunately things like that are likely to happen in group settings and they're likely to mess with people they know they can easily target. Once again, it's fortunate that you weren't hurt.

    I thought about doing that but I didn't wanna look like a punk, so I waited for mall security to eventually get there
