So if there really was a private area, in the middle of a public area of a mall, why was it not marked as such and why were trespassing charges dropped?

You just don't get it, do you?

Was it an employee only area?  No ******* idea.    Was he asked to leave on multiple occassions by people charged with keeping the area secure?  If you believe the police report.   Was he within his rights to refuse to provide ID?  He sure was.   Did he create a problem when it was completely unnecessary?   Absolutely.

It was a bank.  Hang out, with your lily white ***, in front of a bank on mulitple occassions and then explain to the authorities what your rights are.  Take the exact same path.   Tell us what happens.

I worked right next to a bank in college. I hung out in front of it literally hundreds of times while I was on a break and never had any problems because it was a public area. And because I'm white.

Oh yeah. Because it wasn't private.
Are you familiar with the mall?  Or the specific area within the mall in question?

Have you been there?

On the flipside, did the cops create a problem when it was completely unnecessary?
For the 57th time, sure.   However, you can only control the actions of one person.   You.

He created a situation and got zapped, cuffed and hauled off to the pokey for his troubles.   BIG WIN for him.

So if he was in fact trespassing, why were the trespassing charges dropped?
I'm not a party to the case.  You'll have to ask somebody who is.

It will be when he's paid, and a big loss for the citizens of the Twin Cities.
Will it?

So is the working assumption here that the guy in question was just sitting here peacefully, waiting for his kids, when the security guard suddenly decided that he didn't want no n*ggers sitting in HIS lobby on HIS watch, so he called the racist SPPD to come on over to get the n*gger the **** out of there?

That sound about right?

Does that pass the "smell test" as a reasonable story?

Or maybe there's some other minor details, like what might have prompted the security guard to call the SPPD, that we don't know about?
