    Not sure if this has been talked about but,

    When I was about 12, my family and I were sitting in the middle of the kingdumb hall, I was seated at the end of the aisle, and some lady sitting about 7 rows in front of us got up and started yelling, and ran up to the speaker, two guys grabbed her and took her outside, we never saw her again, but I do remember all the rumors about her, and what she did, I saw her clearly but people were saying that she tried to attack the elder with a knife, I did not see a knife, other rumors were drugs, demons, apostate, etc.

    Has anyone here been removed from the kingdumb hall by force?

    Welcome WonderWoman.

    When I was in Hobart South congregation an apostate was escorted out. No one knows what realy happened to him outside except for the two elders, but the apostate wrote to the newspaper and said that they pushed him onto his car bonnet and bashed him.

    I've never seen an adult forcibly removed from a Kingdom Hall. I've seen a LOT of people forcibly put into a Kingdom Hall.
    I saw lots of people cry at meetings. I saw people hit, and pinched, and poked and taken out of Jehovah's Witness meetings and beat by larger people. Every meeting!
    My 3 year old son and I were belly pushed away from a vending machine at a district assembly by two Jehovah's Witness security guards. That's an experience I'll never forget.

    A drunk, loud man (not a JW) came in during the meeting. The brothers did not throw him out but called the police. The brothers did steer him towards the door.

    I understand that the brothers are told not to touch people unless the person tries to hit someone.

    I have never seen the brothers physical restrain or hit anyone at the KH who was disruptive...they called the police.

    Yes, you are right blondie...brothers are told not to touch anyone especially if you arent being attacked personally....the incidents i witnesses were during memorial prayers and many heavy brothers were asked to drag the hysterical ones out of the hall

    A young sister I know............young adult was forcibly removed after an outburst in the kingdom hall..........I think she was verbally attacking an elder and the organization......A restraining order was put on her not to come to the hall anymore. Her father was/is an elder.

    I recently spoke with her and she still has not gone back to the meetings.......going to college now.

    There was a lady at the Memorial who was standing at the front of the hall. She looked very restless, disgruntled, and almost insane. She was rocking back and forth waiting for the wine and the unleavened bread. When the glass and plate got to the front section the "brother's" got into a huddle around the items and blocked the woman from partaking. She was then taken somewhere. I don't remember much noise, but I remembered thinking that it was weird. I just thought it was a sister that had "lost her marbles".
