The store was NOT wrong

I won't argue about your son's behavior.
That's not the issue here.
The issue is that... a child alone in a store can get kidnaped.
And late at night, it's harder to search in the dark should this happen.
I know you're upset but... think of it this way... If your son had been kidnapped, you'd be even more upset. And it is likely you'd blame the store.
And even if you say that you wouldn't hold them responsible - SOMEONE would.
The store is simply covering their butts and ensuring all child-customers are safe.
It has nothing to do with your son's status as a customer... but that they want to ensure that your son remains *your son* and doesn't end up on the news in parent's-worst-nightmare story.
