While I agree with some of your comments about intelligent border crossing behaviour, let's remember the man was exiting this country to return to his own.
I have been stopped a few times over the last number of years when leaving this country to enter Canada and each time I have been outraged (it wasn't just me, they were stopping everyone). I kept my feelings to myself, but I always saw it as insulting to the Canadian border security, although I guess the two forces might have been cooperating.
Anyway, much as I don't like the EU, I sure like traveling in the shengen zone and sailing through those borders.
