      I haven't really followed this, so I don't know all the details. As far as I know the pair were waiting for a friend (who did in fact show while they were being arrested). I'm not sure if they were asked to order anything, but in most eateries I've been to, it's customary to be allowed to sit and wait for a friend to arrive before ordering.

    I would agree if the wait wasn't excessive and they were polite. But it is the establishments right to make you leave as well. Sounds like they were asked to leave and they were refused. That moves the problem more onto being their side.

    While bathrooms as supposed to be open to the public (I don't think you can be refused access). It sounds like they were being more than a little disruptive.

Witnesses present said that prior to being asked to leave, the two weren't being disruptive at all; they certainly didn't appear disruptive in the arrest video.

Of course, refusing to leave can itself be considered disruptive, but then that raises the question of why were they asked to leave in the first place. I've seen students sitting in Starbucks upwards an hour doing homework, and that amount of time can't be considered anything but loitering if you apply the same stipulations under which these two were asked to leave.

The police asked them to leave politely 3 times. That is a matter of public record.
