A Wisconsin lawmaker was mistaken for a protester while trying to enter the capitol building, and was tackled by the police inside the building. It looks like a relatively honest mistake, but the police should not be treating the protesters like that. It is a public building and the people of WI should be able to enter. Some parts of me are happy that this lawmaker is finally getting a taste of his own medicine. There is a video at the link below, I don't know how to embed video so if someone could help out that would be great. Thanks

maybe a Link without a 31 second commercial would be even sweeter.

How bout this one.

Seems to me, one of the problems here, is that this guy challenged the cops immediately. So they reacted with equal and greater force until he was identified. If he would have identified himself, he probably could have avoided the whole mess.

Sorry, like I said, don't know how or else I would. Hopefully someone more computer savvy than myself can help me out.

What medicine would that be?

EDIT:

This part from the OP article disgusts me:


In response to the enormous protests from union supporters, state officials have been allowing only a limited number of people into the Capitol this week, despite a judge's order saying it must remain open to the public.


So, we have a public building and a judge has ordered that it remain open to the protesters. Denying the protesters access and using law enforcement as a tool for that denial seems highly criminal to me.

He was probably one of the lawmakers that came to the conclusion that protesters should not be allowed in a public building, and wanted the police to take action against them.

HAHA too bad they didn't rough him up more. See, if the cops were doing their job and defending the oath that they took, they would have shot him on site.

Probably? did you read the article? He was one of the lawmakers that set up his desk outside so the public could have access to him, as other lawmakers were restricting public access.

EDIT:


Wisconsin State Representative Nick Milroy (D) was tackled by police after he tried to enter the Capitol Building last night. Rep. Milroy was one of many Democrats who temporarily set up their office outside of the Capitol Building as a show of protest against Governor Walker's (R-WI) Budget Repair Bill.

Getting a taste of his own medicine? So, these lawmakers are outside physically abusing people?

Where have I been? I just thought they were calling in sick to work....

If any part of you feels good about the police physically abusing anyone, who is not committing a crime, you are one disturbed individual. You should go have that checked out. I hope whatever you suffer from is not contagious....

Missed that part, sorry. So maybe he will help change the minds of the other A-holes there, or he will have the police officer, that was following orders, fired. I just think it is completly crazy that the lawmakers that are out of the state "protesting" are going to be arrested soon if they don't return. Also layoffs will begin soon, the Gov. cares about some people's right to work, but doesn't not seem to care about the people outside protesting.

No worries. When I first read the article (I was skimming) I thought this was one of the lawmakers that fled the state.

See Sir there is where you are wrong. He is a politician. Crime and politician mean the same thing, in this day in age anyway. And not some lil misdemeanor either.

They can limit according to fire code restrictions, and they can limit hours of operation, for instance only open to the public from 6 a.m. to 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., but they have to comply in spirit with the Judge's orders. I'm sure they are walking a very fine line on the issue!

Yeah, the capitol is probably open to the public from 3:30am to 3:45am, or something stupid like that. You probabaly need to sign up to be allowed in. I think a reasonable amount of people should be allowed in.

Well physical abuse is a slap on the wrist according to what usually happens to tyrants. Name one politician who follows the letter of the law. And don't say Ron Paul, I like him alot, but even he has dirt on his hands.
