Why does Molly Bloom's search people?

I was recently at Molly Bloom's (the bar in downtown London, Ontario), and was surprised when I noticed the bouncers rifiling through a female associate of mine's purse.. I thought "Maybe just the ladies get their purses searched, since they always so many bad things in them", before I knew it I was being searched too! I had to take out my keys and everything, and it was a Thursday!!! So to teach them a lesson we threw ice cubes at each other until we were asked to leave (after spending all kinds of money). I've never been searched going into a bar in London that didn't have a big-name band playing (that I recall).

    Maybe they just wanted to cop a free feel? And... In all fairness... You do look like you could be a terrorist!

    On a related note, I was in London over the Christmas holidays passed and went out for drinks at Joe Kool's with some friends (bad idea). I had a baseball cap on and it was tilted a little to the side. It was an old-school meshback bluejays cap, so it commanded some attention. Standing there, as sober as one could possibly be during a visit to London, the bouncer approached me and told me I had to leave. He said "turn your hat straight or you leave." I couldn't really believe this was happening, so I asked him "are you serious, why?" He said "its our policy; turn it straight or leave." I said no. He looked around for backup (I'm 5'6" and weigh 140 pds), to which a really large bouncer responded. They grabbed me and thrust me out the door.
    At the next bar, G.T.'s, (another bad idea) I was greeted by a more congenial bouncer who explained to me why I wouldn't be let in to his bar and why I was kicked out of Mr. Koolinski's place; it seems wearing your hat even slightly to the side in London means you're in a gang, know how to conceal an AK-47 in a winter jacket, and are out to kill WASP-y college kids. Moral: London is the Fallujah of Ontario.
