    If I have tickets to a movie I get to stand up and yell to make some point about the plot or the director's political views? If someone has paid to attend your industry conference, and stands up during your presentation to harangue you about the eeevils of computer technology and social media on our youth, that's OK?

      Knock it off.
      The movie analogy is stupid and you know it.
      Way to clap and cheer this woman's arrest for trying to provide a better life for her kids.
      What's next?  
      Telling her if she doesn't like her pay to quit?

      Passing a law that the Constitution doesn't allow does not negate the Constitution, it negates the law that was passed. Secret courts can't make up secret laws. SORRY FOR THE TYPOS :)

      get arrested if you refuse.

      Because there is no "trespass" until you refuse.  What with you having, you know, bought a ticket.

    •  But why arrest someone? Just kick them out (4+ / 0-)

      then like a bouncer tosses someone out of a bar who is getting rowdy or a security guard at a movie theatre or even employee tells someone to leave.

      We need fewer arrests for stuff like that and more bouncers then.

      Whatever happened to the days when a person broke a rule of the establishment or event and was told to get out.

      I got kicked out of a couple of bars with rowdy drunk friends back in college but never arrested.

      Kick people out but do not arrest them.

      Under Illinois trespass law, what the lady did is not a crime.

      Perhaps you should take Law 101 and learn a bit before you comment again.
