Police carry protesters out of Wisconsin capitol

posted at 12:45 pm on March 10, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

Earlier today, a debate erupted on Twitter about whether police in Madison would stand aside and let demonstrators overrun the capitol in sympathy with the public-employee unions that planned another massive protest after last night’s vote in the state Senate.  So far, it appears that police have instead acted professionally, as they have begun to clear the capitol building of protesters that broke in last night:

Demonstrators were carried out of the Assembly by police Thursday as a new standoff shaped up at the Capitol as Gov. Scott Walker’s administration has again closed the building to the public.

As protesters said they were willing to risk arrest to block an Assembly vote on Walker’s bill on union bargaining, police began escorting or dragging some of them out. There is still a sizable group inside, however.

“Shame! Shame! Shame!” demonstrators shouting.

Taylor Tengwall, 21, of Duluth, Minn., said, “They grabbed me by the shoulders and took me out.”

Law enforcement gave early indications that they would play it down the middle.  First they decided to keep the building closed instead of opening it on time.  When “hundreds” of demonstrators demanded that the police step aside, they held their positions instead. Shortly after that demand, Madison police shut down the roads around the capitol building to cut off traffic.

As I argued on Twitter earlier, the police in Wisconsin have signaled their sympathy to the unions, but have conducted themselves professionally during the three weeks of the crisis.  At least thus far, they continue to do so. The demonstrators have a right to assemble on the Capitol grounds and protest, and the police are going to allow that, but they appear ready to secure the building and allow the legislature to meet.

It’s a good thing, too, because death threats have begun pouring into the state capitol, aimed at Republicans. Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald released the text of one through spokesman Andrew Wellhouse that threatened to “assault” several elected Republican officials at their homes:

“We have received several more threats over the past few weeks as well, and protesters have actually gone so far as to go up to (Fitzgerald’s) house and bang on the windows at 6 a.m. demanding that he come out,” Welhouse said.

Tim Donovan, a spokesman for the Department of Administration and Capitol Police, had no immediate comment Thursday morning.

Here’s an excerpt of the email provided by Welhouse:

“This is how it’s going to happen: I as well as many others know where you and your family live, it’s a matter of public records. We have all planned to assault (sic) you by arriving at your house and putting a nice little bullet in your head. However, this isn’t enough. We also have decided that this may not be enough to send the message. So we have built several bombs that we have placed in various locations around the areas in which we know that you frequent…”

The Assembly convened late, as its Majority Leader Jeff Fitzgerald was asked by the Capitol Police to hold off until they could secure the chamber. According to the live feed, which cuts in and out, they came into session a short while ago.

Update: Actually, it appears that the Assembly still has not come into session.  Several Democratic lawmakers in orange T-shirts had been milling around, but the Republicans want to wait until the police secure the building.  They are still milling around as of now (12:15), but appear to be taking seats.

Rush just said if he was in WI, he would take bho’s speech from AZ, the civility one, mass killings and wounding of Giffords on a continuous loop on a loud speaker for the union thugs to hear. Rush also said bho could stop this if he wanted to but won’t.

Bullsh!t. ‘Police’ have assisted union thugs in escaping after assaulting pro-Walker protesters, have stood silent while state property is damaged, have refused to come to the aid of pro-Walker protesters when their cameras were stolen, and have refused to arrest protesters that are disobeying court orders and police orders. Enough of this ‘professionalism’ crap.

I note that the State Police were involved, not just the Capitol police. That tells me the capitol police are either no longer trusted or are overwhelmed.

Neither of which is a good thing.

JohnGalt23 on March 10, 2011 at 1:01 PM

Ed, your commentary about the police and protesters demonstrates the very problem with unions. I’m not knocking you; I’m getting more from your analysis than from reports themselves. In a situation such as what’s playing out in Wisconsin, would the public want law enforcement to suffer a “blue flu” or decide to march with protesters who’ve demonstrated in actions and words they don’t believe in the rule of law? Law enforcement should never have a problem deciding when to protect the public or public interests, in this case, the legislature which embodies both.

madmonkphotog on March 10, 2011 at 1:01 PM

I can only imagine the media’s response if these things had been done by tea party members. Now they sit in silence as their own show blatant disregard for the law and spew vile hatred. They should be ashamed.
 
People, we need to start supporting those who tell the truth and not supporting those who don’t. It’s about the money. Take a little time out of your life and note the advertisers of liberal media. Write them letters if you can, but more importantly, don’t buy their products. If every conservative did nothing but buy the alternative brand, half of the lying media would be gone in a year. The other half would rethink their positions out of necessity.

One of the Republican’s was just shown entering the Capitol and was shouting “let me through so I can do my job”

There is an Associated Press picture of Taylor Tengwall on ***February 21***, saying it was his seventh day of protesting at the Capitol.

Any bets he’s a grievance studies major who is informally getting class credit for protesting?

Realist on March 10, 2011 at 1:04 PM

The idiotic death threats against the Republicans is the final nail in the coffin of these union thug morons!

I hope they drag every single one of these jerks out by their feet with their heads banging on the Capital steps as they are finally dropped down on the outside sidewalk on their fat rear ends!

Then they can stand out there and shriek “The Whole World Is Watching” until their faces turn blue for all anyone else cares!

pilamaye on March 10, 2011 at 1:05 PM

Rush just had a caller from Madison, WI saying that the “protesters” (from outside of the state of WI) have set up a DAYCARE-family center in the building so they can drop off their children while they destroy it! Un-freakin-believable!

Tengwall knows how to get quoted. Again, the Associated Press, February 27th:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Taylor Tengwall spent the last seven nights sleeping inside Wisconsin’s Capitol building alongside thousands of fellow pro-union protesters, and he was hoping state officials would relent on their decision to clear the building for the night starting Sunday.

Tengwall—who said he dropped out of school for the semester and came to Madison “to protect my country from a despotic government”

Wonder who’s paying him?

NEGATIVE!!! Let the union police clear out the mob.

Governor Walker, you’ve squandered the initiative for the people of Wisconsin, and I daresay, for the people of the United States. But it’s still not too late to drag the President of the United States into the situation for your benefit. It’s not too late to turn this situation against Obama. Hang the illegal and unethical actions of his union thug supporters around his neck, now. Your state capitol is in disarray, as I type – in lockdown. Call on the President to ask his union thug supporters to back off, go home, and behave like decent human beings in accordance with the will of the people as expressed through the democratic process last November. All it takes is a little imagination to see that if the show was on the other foot, the Democrats would be doing exactly as I propose, to their benefit.

Union goons are very scary people.

I grew up in a formerly industrial union town. This is the kind of bs I remember from them. They will brutalize and torture people who cross them. I remember people being beaten to a pulp, bombs, torched and smashed cars and attempted murder. This is all par for the course. They’re never prosecuted for it, either.

Their thuggery and laziness on the job (they bragged about it and I still hear those stories from those who still have jobs when I go home) made a lasting impression on me as a kid. My formerly industrial home town is now a depressed and decaying place, a Little Detroit, actually. There’s a huge retiree population and few job opportunities. The hard working kids have to leave to find decent employment. Between unions and government regulation, the companies never had a chance of survival.

silvernana on March 10, 2011 at 1:12 PM

Stand tall Republicans. This is hopefully your finest hour.

I say this in honor of my father who teamster union thugs tried to murder. He had worked himself up from milking cows to be the assistant manager of a milk bottling and distribution plant on LI in the late 30′s. He was an impediment to the teamsters unionizing tactics since he had done all the various jobs personally and knew how much a normal worker could accomplish and could recognize when a union organized slowdown was being employed. He narrowly escaped as his unfortunate assistant went out to make the rounds for closing the plant that night and was found left for dead the next morning. Nothing has changed.

May G-d protect Gov. Walker and these heroic legislators and may the recall efforts gloriously fail, except for the ones against the Dems of course.

Gov. Walker can lay this directly at Obama’s feet.

“I want you to argue with them and get in their faces!”

OR

“The loss of these wonderful people should make every one of us strive to be better in our private lives – to be better friends and neighbors, co-workers and parents,” Mr. Obama said. “And if, as has been discussed in recent days, their deaths help usher in more civility in our public discourse, let’s remember that it is not because a simple lack of civility caused this tragedy, but rather because only a more civil and honest public discourse can help us face up to our challenges as a nation, in a way that would make them proud.”

So why should Tinker Taylor from Minnesota care about what happens to state employees in Wisconsin? Shouldn’t he be doing his job in Minnesota?

He was a student at University of Wisconsin – Superior until he dropped out to Serve The Revolution.

So Jessies there? Can Mikey Moore be far behind?

The buffets in Madison are out of food until next Tuesday.

Union goons are very scary people.

I grew up in a formerly industrial union town. This is the kind of bs I remember from them. They will brutalize and torture people who cross them. I remember people being beaten to a pulp, bombs, torched and smashed cars and attempted murder. This is all par for the course. They’re never prosecuted for it, either.

Their thuggery and laziness on the job (they bragged about it and I still hear those stories from those who still have jobs when I go home) made a lasting impression on me as a kid. My formerly industrial home town is now a depressed and decaying place, a Little Detroit, actually. There’s a huge retiree population and few job opportunities. The hard working kids have to leave to find decent employment. Between unions and government regulation, the companies never had a chance of survival.

I pointed out last night that I suspect that among the life experiences that turn voters into conservatives, encounters with union goons may constitute a significant proportion.

I’ve had personal experiences with union thuggery several times myself, and it has hardened my outlook on unionism, and convinced me that we no longer need them. They did some good early in the last century, but since then it’s been downhill all the way.

Word is Jesse Jackson tried to make his way into the Assemby Chamber and got the door slammed right in his face. I hope they physically throw his sorry rabble-rousing rear end out on the sidewalk!

With all the death threats aimed at public officials and the use of the internet to deliver them, how come the feds aren’t involved?

Nope, sorry JJJ I will absolutely not listen to you lecture about the right to vote. The people of WI voted and did so to elect Walker. You don’t have to like it but you have no RIGHT to change it. This bill is not up for votes from the public. It has been argued, debated and lawfully accepted. Sit down shut up and try to pay attention to how democracy is SUPPOSED to work. I know it maybe confusing. Maybe Daddy forgot some lessons. I’m sure you’ll be fine. Go take Rep.Ellison some Kleenex and you two can hug it out.

HUNDREDS OF MADISON WI STUDENTS WALK OUT- Leftist Mayor Leads March to Capitol

“People are really upset that the Republican senators passed this bill illegally — they did not give 24 hours notice,” Fiksel said. “We feel like it’s a slap in the face.”

….But apparently these liberal “protectors of democracy” have no problem with democrats running away to Illinois from their elected duties while democratic supporters assault people,issue death threats,and vandalize property in the name of “civil discourse”……

….and as usual liberals show how clueless they are with their claims of “they broke the law” when no such law was broken.

Typical selective outrage coming from the Micheal Moore wing of the democratic party.

They need to put an item in the new budget for more tasers, which they can easily afford after they cut out the goonion bennies.

Taylor Tengwall, 21, of Duluth, Minn., said, “They grabbed me by the shoulders and took me out.”

Son,I’d have driven you out with a horsewhip.

Because Mr. Obama supports the behavior of the thugs. He is after all a socialist thug himself.

He’s just trying to get laid while the girls are all stirred up. Lots of possibilities but not much privacy. I don’t know how they handle that part.
