    Free speech zones anywhere on public property violates the 1st amendment.... I can see the need for a permit to hold a rally, protest, etc. but the permit has to be free, and it has to be issued immediately, or it violates our rights under the Constitution.
    The man was on still on property owned by the university. I'm not allowed to break into Section 8 housing. I'm not allowed in public parks after dark.

    I dunno man, that's pretty common.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    All those things you've cited are for legitimate public safety reasons.

    Relegating a group of people to a free speech zone, to get them out of the way isn't the same.

    COuld it be that maybe just maybe your ever so powerful and complete 'knowledge' of the rules and laws ant UT is wrong? BTW...they ASKEd the group to go to the PUBLIC CURB 100 yards away...but that wouldnt allow him and his group to be the ever so annoying assholes they were striving to be and they refused...so...he was arrested. Because...hun...APPARENTLY there are SOME laws that you arent aware of.

    Even with tax dollars, the park is still the township's, and the housing is still the resident's. It's the university's property They have a right to kick some asshole off of it.

    Sitting on a park bench 5 mnutes after the sun sets while waiting for a friend isn't a safety concern.

    That's true, my friend was ticketed in a state park because we were coming out after closing.
    I broke my knee on the way up and had to crab walk most of the way down, took forever.

    Some people are dickheads, still though the underlying reason is safety.

    No it isn't. You still get to utter free speech. LOL. Get ready for "Free Speech Zones 2.0", which will be located inside of locked basements.
