Protests rights get nasty at Madison Capitol

Postby Lily » Fri Sep 14, 2012 7:33 pm

Kinda sounding like Kent State. Sounds like Erwin wants blood and/or obedience at any cost.

"Approximately 1:00 p.m. this afternoon, Capitol Police observed a group who were marching, chanting and shouting in the Capitol rotunda. The Capitol Police received a noise complaint from workers inside the Capitol building regarding the extreme noise. At approximately 2:00 p.m., the officers approached a female who was identified as the leader to cite her for disorderly conduct and no permit. While the officers attempted to talk with the female, another member of the group interfered with the conversation."

Well YEAH, to call 911 EMT for help!!

"The officers gave him a verbal warning, which he did not follow. He was subsequently arrested for disorderly conduct and also resisted arrest. During the incident, the female had a medical emergency unrelated to the detention and was transported to a local hospital for medical attention."

She's in the Veterans Hospital and getting better no thanks to the Capitol Police THUGS.

This is the part I don't understand:

 The Capitol Police received a noise complaint from workers inside the Capitol building regarding the extreme noise.


Is the "extreme noise" just fine if the people making the noise have a permit? Has anyone actually tried it yet?

Permit? They don't need a permit. Their permit is the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. And they are correct.

So the self righteous can't follow simple policies and you blame the police and call them thugs for doing their job?

She had a heart issue very much related to the incident... Had they NOT been illegally arresting her there wouldn't have been the stress that caused the heart problem... Sickening!

Segway Jeremy Ryan-
Thank you for taking time out of your busy day and stopping here to inform us of the latest about the Capitol situation.

It is great to read that you are still very much engaged in the battle even though your own health is so grave. If you need anything don't hesitate to ask.

One day longer! ONE DAY STRONGER!

One of my fav protests videos at the Capitol. From June 2011:
