Imagine thousands of people were sneaking into Phoenix Suns games without tickets. The management would quickly crack down on the “undocumented spectators.” Security personnel would engage in “profiling” – singling out younger male fans wandering around without obvious seats. They would want to see some “papers” – ticket stubs. Those lacking documentation would be deported out of the arena, or, in some cases, arrested.
