Shorebreak, I am not sure Citibank is to blame for what happened here. It seems these people were protesting and looking to cause trouble in the bank. If they were deliberatively trying to be disruptive, Citicorp may have acted correctly. I don't know this for sure, but it does seem like these people had an ulterior motive for being in the bank, and were there to do a lot more than just close their accounts. BTW, this may be the first time I have ever defended Citicorp; I am one of their greatest critics.
