West's response: "You are still in America."

This Tuesday, liberal talk radio host Nicole Sandler was arrested for heckling Allen West during a town hall. Now, a similar outburst happened at another town hall on Wednesday. And while no arrests were made, the protesters who were asked to leave did make sure to utter obscenities as they left:

From WPBF-TV:

Police escorted a number of people out of a town hall meeting Wednesday night -- the second night in a row that U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., held what became a heated event.

"I think they're a bunch of jerks," said Anne Dion after police walked her outside. "That's what I think about being forced to leave."

Trouble was brewing even before the event started. Sign-carrying protesters were asked to leave private property.

West warned the crowd about lashing out.

"You see a lot of media cameras, and the media's here because they want to see a show," he said.

The warning did not stop supporters and critics from turning up the volume.

"I don't care who's yelling at me, cursing at me or saying whatever," said West. "You are still in America."
