Now they installed panic buttons in the Capitol to protect staff from the peaceful protestors. How about they just ban weapons from the Capitol and public places instead? That would be better.
But i hope they have these buttons in the Supreme Court in case Prosser goes on another choking women spree.http://host.madison.com/wsj/news/local/ ... f887a.html
Department of Administration installs 482 panic buttons in Capitol offices
"Attempts to step up Capitol security continued this week with the installation of panic buttons in staff offices and the continued targeting of certain protesters. The Department of Administration confirmed Tuesday that it installed 482 panic buttons in offices around the statehouse, in an effort to provide a level of comfort for staffers who they say have felt harassed by the presence of protesters in the historic building.
The wireless buttons send an alert to Capitol police, who will respond immediately, DOA Spokeswoman Stephanie Marquis said. "(Staffers) have basically been told to press it anytime they feel threatened," she said. Marquis said the buttons cost a total of $103,172, a total that will be divided between the DOA, the Wisconsin State Senate and Assembly and the Wisconsin Supreme Court."
