– Political Activists May be Banned from San Francisco’s Public Transportation System (Liberty Blitzkrieg, April 30, 2013):
This article seems innocuous enough…until you keep reading. At first it appears entirely reasonable that the BART system (Bay Area Rapid Transit) might look to ban riders for a year who act violently while using the service.

For example, according to ABC News in San Francisco:
AB 716 won’t only target violent behavior. It can be applied to protestors who have been arrested during free-speech movements.
