Asking someone to leave when they are not doing anything illegal (taking pictures), and then detaining them claiming trespassing, is entirely different. It's almost absurdly different. Think about it...they ask you to leave, you won't (because you want to finish shopping), so they detain you? I am very very skeptical that your point (at least as I read it) is even remotely correct. If you do have relevant statutes or cases to cite, I certainly would appreciated them.
