Any shouts of "Lock her up!" at the actual convention [View all]

should result in the immediate expulsion of that delegate and loss of credentials. The convention has rules of decorum.

From the podium: "The delegate is in violation of the rules of decorum. The Sergeant at Arms will remove the delegate and take the delegate's credentials."

Simple. Effective. Immediate. This is what should be done from the very first incident and for every incident of that nature. Simple expel any delegates who would do such a thing.
