I was walking around looking for a decent table. I saw the pit boss and he had a name tag which read "Mr. White"--and so I'll be using his name here. Mr. White seemed hyper vigilant, but I didn't let that dissuade me.
I found a table with decent rules, so I back counted ("wonging"). When the count became good I "wonged in"--sitting down and placing my bet based on the count. I noticed that Mr. White had noticed me doing this.
When the count went bad, I got up and back counted at another table. When the count got good, I wonged in for the second time--at which point Mr. White came over and told me I would be restricted to just playing 1 table with a flat bet. This ended my play at this casino for the night.
The moral of the story is that sometimes 2 Wongs do make a White.
Newest video is out and wow the amount of intimidation from that one asshole security guy. Ugh. I really wish we could get a federal law making card counting legal and just let the chips fall where they may as casinos change the rules to be shitty as hell for blackjack and hopefully push people away from it as a table game.

Card counting is already legal (as long as you aren't using external aids or devices to help you). As it stands, casinos in the United States (like with any business) can refuse service to anyone for any reason--as long as it doesn't violate the civil rights laws (race, sex, being handicapped etc.)
They could theoretically pass a law making it illegal for casinos to kick out "advantage players"--but the only effect this would have is they'd switch all tables to 6:5 blackjack and/or other rules that give the house an insurmountable advantage. This wouldn't kill blackjack as most players are casual and don't understand the difference between good and bad blackjack rules--it would only impact card counters and effectively kill the ability to play for an advantage. This cat and mouse game comes with the territory, and getting a rude backoff is just something AP's have to put up with from time to time.
