this is what todaze democracy looks like

The petition rally was originally scheduled at a local Merrill restaurant but was relocated after the proprietors received many phone calls and felt they needed to back out. The committee then set up in front of the Lincoln County Courthouse to offer citizens an opportunity to sign their names to the petition. Over 1,000 calls had been sent out the previous day notifying area residents of the petition rally.

Upon arrival, members of the recall committee were encircled by union protesters carrying signs and a leader with a mega phone who began chanting and ranting loudly. They packed in tightly around the petition collection table so as to prevent those attempting to sign from doing so. At one point, a pro union protester, pretending to be interested in signing the petition, wrote profanity across a partially collected petition form, than began ripping up the completed petitions that were in close proximity.

The policemen who were there, and who were standing in close proximity to these events as they unfolded, did nothing to assist those collecting the petitions as they were being destroyed, despite such an action being a Felony under Wisconsin law. Police also did nothing to clear the walk way for citizens that wanted to sign the petitions. Recall Committee members received many phone calls the following day from Merill area citizens who stated that they showed up to sign the petition, but were too afraid to get out of their vehicles and approach the recall table…

    Badges removed? No, they are working to subvert the constitution and actively working to remove the current government provided by that constitution. They are committing treason, and should be executed.

    Not bad enough that– now they have the little children they are saving chanting at the Capital Building– when I saw that I was sick to my stomach–how low can they go???? We conservatives must be terrible terrible people– for them to have to go to such lengths for our freedom—

    That’s the sort of thing that will eventually cause some folks to start shooting.

    Rent a local vacant lot, and try again.

    Bring guns.

    Union organizers starting a firefight to prevent recall petitions will be remembered in November.

    Every politician targeted will lose, regardless of whether or not they are able to have a recall.

    Do these union peons have any sort of immunity to a Louisville slugger to the back of their knees?

    The left feels that they can break the law blatantly with no arrest.
    They are seeking a violent response, and will most likely get it if this keeps up. I would suggest arming yourself if you are involved in recalling a leftist politician.

    I hope it doesn’t escalate to the point that a citizen must use deadly force in self defense. That does seem to be the way it is headed if the unionized law enforcement refuses to do their jobs and enforce the law.

    All the more reason to have multiple video cameras at such events. Include a few wireless broadcasting to remote recording devices in case things get sticky. Keep and copy for posterity and evidence. . .

    Oh and copyright it with permission to others to share it across the interwebs.

    It really shows that lincoln County, WI police officers are corrupt and are willing to be bought and paid for. That when the payments quit comming, it can get real dangerous and those cops will just turn their cheeks.
