It's Yankee policy that fans remain seated during the singing of God Bless America-- under penalty of expulsion.
Bradford Campeau-Laurion says in his federal lawsuit his rights were violated at an Aug. 26 game between the Yankees and the Boston Red Sox when he tried to pass a police officer.
The lawsuit said the officer did not let him take a step before grabbing his right arm and twisting it behind him. It said two officers marched him down several ramps to the stadium’s exit, where he was pushed out as one officer told him to leave the country if he didn’t like it.
Of course, we'll have to see what more there is to the story, but it is clear from this report and others, that the Yankees probably compel participation in religious patriotism. That's offensive and ridiculous.
