The girl in the picture is 15-years-old.
She is a high school student who was traveling with a group of kids from her school to look at colleges interstate, when she was approached by a security officer.
According to the girl’s father, the security officer was looking at the girl as she and her friends has their identification checked as part of ordinary processes.
He was ‘glaring’ at her, writes father Mark Fraunfelder and ‘mumbling’. The security guard then proceeded to ‘verbally abuse’ the teenager.
Why? Because of the way she was dressed.
This ordinary kid – dressed casually in black leggings, a white singlet top and a baggy, unbuttoned checkered shirt – was instructed by the security guard to ‘cover herself’ because she was ‘only 15’.
