i dunno....i mean there is a case to be made for criminal trespassing, but i don't know how strong it would be, after all the arguments were
to give you a brief breakdown of what that would look like:
the school is technically public property, as it's tax-funded, however, it's administered by the district, which would make it a municipal
building/property, subject to access restrictions based on time, and function.
however, he was invited to the school, as were all the parents, for this meeting, so it could be argued that he had every right to be there, as both
the parent of a student, AND as a taxpayer. but then again, and this is where the disorderly conduct comes in, when he starts acting inappropriately,
his invitation, and thus his permission to be there can be rescinded/revoked, making him technically a trespasser..
it's not JUST that he was rude, he was loud, and obnoxious, and confrontational....this does fall within the somewhat broad definition of
"disorderly conduct", add to that his line to the cop "you're gonna have to arrest me then", and that's basically the same as him saying "make
me", to the cop when the cop told him he had to go...when you're being disruptive, AND belligerent...well, that sort of thing USUALLY ends up with
the offender getting a tuneup, and possibly a taser up the ass...but it seems this cop was nicer, and a fair bit more professional than most, so all
he got was very calmly arrested..i'm fairly certain the cop saw that the guy was trying to bait him into using excessive force on camera..good on him
for not falling into the trap..
