Protesters are locking the Capitol doors shut from the inside using metal handcuffs (Wisconsin)
Ann Althouse Blog ^ | 03/09/11 | Ann Althouse

Posted on 03/09/2011 9:03:25 PM PST by freespirited

[Meade] told me that just now, by phone. He got out, and is warning others not to go in. Obviously, it's a terrible fire hazard to make it so people cannot get out of the building easily. Presumably, protesters think it's a good idea to keep the police out, but it is dangerously stupid.

ADDED: Meade called back to say, some of the doors are handcuffed shut and some are wide open. "ANYBODY CAN GET IN AND ANYBODY CAN BRING ANYTHING IN. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO SECURITY WHATEVER."

AND: Meade — who just got home at 9 CT — says the police have the "fairly calm jocose" attitude that they've had all along. They have no riot gear, he said. The place is "swarmed" with protesters. Photos and video soon.

The police seem absolutely uninterested in doing their job.

Many of these cops need to be fired as soon as this is over.

The same “police” are union as well. You should have read what the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Assoc head said about Walker..these keystone cops are in cahoots with the protesters, that’s why most on FR were clamoring for the National Guard.

Governor should call in the National Guard ASAP, what if the protesters start a fire and burn down the building? He the Governor and democrats will just say "hey its not our people its anarchists and you failed to protect the building"

Walker needs to send in the SWAT and National Guard ASAP.

You can’t be a union thug AND a policeman at the same time. They all need to be fired.

Handcuffs? Check the cops for a missing set or two...

I can’t get through metal detectors at any gov’t building with my handy Army zippo lighter or a couple of quarters....

The Governor needs to call in the SWAT(if they dont do the job they can be fired)

First job for them is to open all doors and make sure people can get in and out

Second, Start zip tieing hands behind backs with plastic cuffs put the arrested people in one area of the building

Order people to leave the premises.. etc.. bring buses to ship the people to jail.

My thoughts exactly. CN would be perfect, but a major mopping job would be in order afterward.

My wife and children and I just prayed for the Senators who voted, their families, their staffs, the capitol employees, and also the Assembly members and Governor, for their safety and protection. May all FReepers give them some time in prayer. If satan isn’t pissed at this, I’m not sure what else it would take, the collective bargaining is mostly scrapped! May God bless and protect the heroes and innocents!

I can almost guarantee you that the Sheriff Dept. in my parish and the one next to it, would have this under control in 2 hours, it wouldn't be pretty, but it would be done.
It needs to be done.

The senators reportedly left right after the vote by underground tunnel to another building where they are bused to remote parking areas where their cars are. I think it was Daily Caller where I read this report. However, the thugs got wind of their procedure and tried to rock the bus.
That’s the end of the story so far.

Without harming anyone.

Thank you for that reminder. That is the answer - to pray earnestly for them. It’s not just about WI, it’s about our country. And, yes, God bless and protect our heroes.

call in the national guard for the state and get rid of these rabblerousers - cite anyone not a Wisconsinite for trespassing and escort them to the state line. Fire any police officer refusing to cross the ‘picket line’ to control this mess. Enough is enough. Time for the brats to go.

Yup. Me too. Just me and my cousin.

And bottle of Jack Black.

And that's all I need.

Clearly the strategy has flipped. Since Dems fleeing the scene didn’t work, now they’ll occupy the place and keep the Assembly Republicans from entering on Thursday to seal the deal.

The National Guard? If one only listened to Progressives, the impression would be that the various skin-head militias would show up with guns and cause trouble - but they aren't there.

I'm absolutely sure that Obama and his minions in the enemedia would love having another Kent State.

UNION cops will just watch while UNION goons beat down tea party grannies.

Surround the building with national guard, prohibiting any more from going in.

Turn off all electricity, water, plumbing, AC, etc. etc.

Arrest everyone coming out, releasing only the GOP members and verified paid staff.

haul them away for a couple days. Fire them.
