Time, place, and manner protest restrictions; hard line to draw there

"DES MOINES, Iowa -- A Polk County jury reached a verdict Friday in the first trespassing trial for an Occupy Iowa protester.

The jury found Ed Fallon not guilty of trespassing."

This is a fine line for me.  I can certainly see why a fairgrounds would have a closing time. 11pm seems like it's pretty late. Who's going to be there after that anyway?  So I'm not sure how I would have voted on this jury.
