Governor Walker’s Protest Problem

Posted on Updated on

Governor Walker appointed David Erwin the Capitol Police Chief. And, now, this veteran of both our armed services and the state patrol has set out to rid our Capitol of people who exercise their First Amendment Right to hold a peaceful protest. Agree with the protestors or don’t agree; it doesn’t matter – Chief Erwin and his force are making a mockery of both our government and the men and women officers who know the difference between a peaceful protester and a terrorist.
Both the  Madison Professional Police Officers Association and the Dane County Deputy Sheriffs Association have condemned his actions. Apparently, much like our Governor, Erwin doesn’t care. Arrogant people like our Governor and Erwin don’t have the ability to process any idea that is contrary to their own. To Erwin, disagreeing and protesting against your government equates a terrorist attack. I’m guessing that “the right of the of the people peaceably to assemble” that our First Amendment guarantees wasn’t taught in his history class. Maybe he missed that day.

This probably makes the Capitol quieter, so the Republican Legislators can get back to screwing over the Wisconsin people without having to answer to any of them.
If you’re heading to the Capitol, keep this in mind – Carry a concealed weapon, you’ll be fine. Speak your mind, go directly to jail, don’t pass go and don’t collect $200.
