Are you ever concerned about security during production of a project?

I thought this was an interesting post by The Wrap: a lead character gets thrown out of a show for removing an unruly audience member, while another talent member resigns in solidarity. Do you ever worry about security -- on either a film project or a theater performance? http://www.thewrap.com/actor-fired-anti-gay-heckler/?utm_source=newslett...

Actor Fired After Tossing Anti-Gay Heckler From 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof' Performance (Updated)
An actor in a Santa Clarita, Calif. production of "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" was fired Saturday after physically removing a heckler in the audience who lobbed anti-gay slurs at the cast for nearly half of the show.

Sad situation, it is the management responsibility to provide a safe environment for both the actors and the guests. Security should have removed them before it got to that point.
