Madison Capitol Police Chief Charles Tubbs said Sunday night that protesters can remain inside the state Capitol.
"The people who are in the building will be allowed to stay,"Tubbs said. "There will be no arrests unless people violate the law."
Several hundred protesters refused to leave the building when the doors were shut at 4 p.m. as authorities attempted to get the state Capitol back to normal working hours.

Selective Law Enforcement is not a good thing... me thinks.
Every sign they quoted were sweetness and light. Nice article when you can get it. Written by a union worker?!
“They’re now all on double secret probation !”
Any cop who stays overnight to show “solidarity” with the anti-democracy protestors should be fired the next morning.
Thats the first problem. When the Governor says to clean it out, then they should have 15 minutes to clear the building, no questions asked. The cops there are as bad as the teachers. Gov. needs to shit-can anyone who does not follow his order, then bring in the Guard to clear the place out.
A union screenwriter of course.
That would be Charles Tubbs, father of one son who was accused of conspiracy to commit armed robbery and father to another son who faced charges in a string of arsons in 2009.
Let them stay. Control all the entrances. Allow no food in. They’ll be gone by tomorrow afternoon.
I guess that’s clear enough. Republicans in Madison, WI needn’t call law enforcement any more for anything. It’s against police policy to enforce the law where the Republicans are concerned. What a sham of a police force! Fire them. Fire them now.

MADISON (WKOW) — Dane County authorities alleged 19 year old Collin Tubbs of Middleton went on an arson rampage, right after calling his father, state capitol police chief Charles Tubbs.
Police and court documents state chief Tubbs received a phone call from his son around 4 a.m. Feb. 13 before the crimes.
A Middleton police report states the younger Tubbs told his father “someone had shot his (Collin Tubbs) vehicle.”
The report states Collins Tubbs also said he was “ ‘going to take care of it,’ “ and his father encouraged Tubbs to contact police.
But the police report states chief Tubbs did not contact Middleton police himself until an hour and a half later, after the arson fires had been set.
Oh, and I am sure THE EXACT SAME THING would happen if they were Tea Party people. (Like Hell!)
I recall the sheriff of the SW Colorado county that had trouble with protesters at some event bringing in a cattle truck and loaded them all in the cattle truck and locked the gates, then hauled them to court and let them out one at a time as the judge called their names. That would put a shock factor in Madison, I’m sure, but it would begin the process of restoring order.
Who do they think they are to pick and choose which laws to enforce?
Time for the governor to call in the State Police and arrest everyone in the building along with the cops who did not carry out their directive to vacate the building.
I’m shocked! Who knew! Wisconsin, your image is going down the toilet as we speak! Best get rid of all this trash and start over.
Have they even voted on this yet? rumor is one of the rinos is changing his vote.
There’s a better chance of the cops personally delivering pizza and beer to the goons.
