Laith, thanks for a great blog post, and congratulations for standing your ground. This kind of problem happens almost everywhere: give a little man a some power and a gun, and you get a little dictator. I've had almost the same experience with security guards, policemen, and low-level government workers. But I didn't worry about getting shot! Being a journalist in Iraq takes guts.
