Frivolous Law Enforcement - Banned from WA State Park

The power of the internet. You used to need buy $1 million worth of machinery and start a business with dozens of employees to get your message out. Not anymore. Ben Livingston was ticketed for walking a public road to a park in Olympia, Washington.
Why was he ticketed while many people walked by doing the same thing without the same "law" being enforced? He says there is no due process of law when one is banned from a State Park. The legal authority for the General Administration department to ban citizens from state parks doesn't seem to exist in written form.
OK, this is just one person with one small infraction. But the mighty State of Washington has to pay attention to him, because he has an audience.
