Dangerous situation. Quite possibly an insight into the future under party maintained corporatocracy. When private property rights spill out over into negatively effecting the larger society, we generally limit private property rights. When government fails, people are well within their civil rights to intercede on governments behalf in civilized lands. There's a lesson there for all of us.

The state is asking a private company to remove security guards from their private land because people want to destroy what they are doing.

Eleanore: That's what governments and courts are for. You are talking of socialist anarchy, where mob rules.

"That's what governments and courts are for. You are talking of socialist anarchy, where mob rules." - If you have been paying attention what we are seeing in the US under Crown Party occupation is not the rule of American law, but the rule of a modular tripartite corporatist syndicate consisting of the two major political parties and any entity that has the dollars to influence them. This results in two sets of rule of law, one for the "in" group, one for the rest of us. That is not a legal American form of government or courts of law. What it sounds like we're seeing here is an attempt by politicians to diffuse a very dangerous situation brought about by that reality. Your claims of standards do not hold water other than on paper. American reality is much different today. This is a very foreseeable outcome of that situation.
