PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 9, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — Saturday, October 5th marked the fifth day of the government shut down which has resulted in national monuments being barricaded and closed to the public. When political activist, Craig Bergman, from Iowa was visiting Independence Hall in Philadelphia when he decided he was upset to find it closed and was determined to find answers.
When an officer from the National Park Service was asked if he was the highest ranking member present he responded, “I just work here.” Then when asked for his name or badge his response was “nope.” Later when an armed private security guard from a company named, “SecTek,” was asked who he worked for, he ran away and faced a wall ignoring the question. Bergman then attempted to cross the street and was told if he proceeded he would be arrested.
