Yes, if that opinion is in agreement with those who want to take away rights, reduce the standard of living, and generally turn back the clock on science, education, and health care. Birds of a feather Palin, Bachmann, Perry, Ryan, Fitzgerald, Walker, and Koch together.

Yes, we cut the genitals off conservatives every Saturday at the Farmers Market. Did you just move to town or something?

Adopting the same language as the state statute is what you mean. City DC is for behavior that doesn't rise to a level which is severe enough to likely be charged by the DA's Office. Anybody given a state DC charge for dumping a beer on someone's head would have it reduced to County DC or dropped altogether. Good job figuring out something not charged as a crime isn't a crime. I was afraid I was venturing into complex concepts the common man would find puzzling.

Well, which way do you want it, Mr. Capitalism? I thought conservatives wanted government to be run like a business. So now you're against profit, you commie?
I'm sure if you had the beer dumped on you, you would have issued a municipal d/o/c citation right? Yeah, right. You would have been crying "felonious assault on a police officer."
Now you're just making up laws that don't exist in Wisconsin. Are you an out-of-state Flanders sock puppet?
Yeah, it's city ordinance disorderly conduct for a beer. I've been spit on while in uniform and charged the person state DC only because of the risk of disease transmittal from the saliva. And I didn't even cry.
In case you were wondering, the last time I cried at work was after I couldn't save the life of a 6 month old who was smothered to death. He and his mother slept together on a couch because she was too poor to afford a crib. The rest of the children used the two bedrooms. The mother rolled and trapped the baby so he couldn't breathe. I still remember every little detail about that call in that shitty, run down apartment on Tree Lane, including how soft his face was against mine as I did CPR. He'd probably been dead for hours but it was hard to tell since his mother's body heat kept him from getting cold and I wasn't just going to let him lay there on the living room floor while the family stood there looking at him.
I know this means nothing to you because those kind of people aren't job creators. Sorry to have wasted your valuable time and good day to you, Sir.
