By now you have heard that Mike Huebsch, Scott Walker and Chief Erwin made a show of force today and arrested some of the Solidarity singers for doing what they do daily ----- sing!
Two Democratic legislators denounced this crackdown by Scott Walker’s handpicked police chief, David Erwin.
“Chief Erwin and Governor Scott Walker’s militant handling of the daily peaceful singing has escalated this situation unnecessarily,” said Rep. Chris Taylor. “The Capitol rotunda would have been much safer today had Governor Walker given Chief Erwin a little red rubber ball to play with in the corner instead of control of the entire police force. . . . This is the kind of heavy-handed police government you would expect to see in a Third World country, not here in Wisconsin. It must stop.”
State Sen. Bob Jauch was equally indignant.
“It’s just so unnecessary,” he said. “There are more important issues in the state of Wisconsin than as to whether people are singing. Since when is that threatening? You can bring in a gun in the capitol if it’s concealed but you can’t come into your capitol if you’re singing?”
H/T Rebecca Kemble for the video and pics. She Deserves a Pulitzer!
Apparently Scott Walker's plan is working! He truly is "Unintimidated"!
Scott Walker and his divisive, ALEC infused politics is SOLELY responsible for the huge divide in our state. ONLY two people can stop this now and bring our state back together - 1;. Scott Walker himself(not likely) and 2. The Voters in WI in 2014!
This is not my Wisconsin.
PS: Now would be a good time for the Mary Burke's, Mark Harris's and anyone else considering a run for Governor, to step up and weigh. This is NOT a left/right issue it is a Common Sense issue!
