Legislators, Occupy Boise Face Off

Shavone Hasse of Parma is removed from the podium by Idaho State Trooper Ben Comorosky after Haase's testimony was cut-off by House State Affairs Committee chairman Thomas Leortscher, who deemed it a personal attack on Friday in Boise. Occupy Boise supporters came to the Legislature to protest a ban on their encampment, which has been erected on state land near the Capitol since November.  Republican House Assistant Majority Leader Scott Bedke told the House State Affairs Committee that the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1984 that forbidding tents on the federal Capitol Mall didn't violate free-speech rights.
