The way the law is is that stores and the like are considered private property, and that owners are allowed to do as they wish with their private property. Property rights are strong.
But it’s not that simple.
On Saturday evening, a police patrol in the Ohio State University campus area came across a woman being raped in a parking garage. They stopped the rape and arrested the perpetrator.
The woman was in the area because she had just been kicked off of a local COTA bus.
And I’m sure my readers will easily guess why she was kicked off.
