You don't have constitutional rights on private property. This incident says a lot about the political motives behind the privatization of public spaces (ie: strip malls), and their implications for the rest of us.

That being said, demonstrations that outrage strip mall owners are more than common around here, and rarely ends in more than a warning. The Tresspass to Property Act is a lot more complicated than putting up a sign, and even if you're convicted is very minor offence, akin to a traffic ticket (with a small fine), assuming they could even keep hold of someone long enough to cite them. Even then, it would still have to go court and wouldn't be fun to prosecute.

At the end of the day, I suspect said owner would end up having to explain to the judge exactly what he thought he was getting into when he rented David Sweet an office?
