Wisconsin Capitol Damage $7.5 Milion, Plus, 22 Caliber Shells Found On Grounds

Have no fear my little mobsters, you look better everyday, thanks to the public unions in Wisconsin. For your viewing pleasure a little video from Madison. Those champions of the “middle class” and keepers of the “American Dream” left a few calling cards behind, before disbanding. Consider it a little memento of their principled stance against the man, and yes, it comes with a price tag.

First up … as workers cleaned up the grounds and surveyed the damage, they found some interesting items … live ammo.

Authorities found dozens of rounds of live ammunition outside the state Capitol building in Madison, Wis., where protesters have gathered to rally against the governor’s budget repair bill.

Dane County Sheriff’s deputies discovered 11 rounds near the State Street entrance to the building early Thursday, the Wisconsin State Journal reported.

Officials also found 29 rounds near the King Street entrance and one round near the North Hamilton Street entrance.

University of Wisconsin-Madison Police Chief Susan Riseling said the bullets were 22-caliber long rifle hollow points.

Officers conducted a sweep the grassy areas and bushes outside the Capitol, and Department of Administration lawyer Steven Means asked that the Capitol be cleared for a security check, the Wisconsin State Journal reported.

The left is full of violence and hatred and anger and malice and wrath and greed and will destroy their fellow man in this hatred.
This is the result of not believing on the God of Israel who created all things by Jesus Christ.
When people believe lies, therein is great hatred. Only bible believing Christians will be spared the wrath of God for sin.

The union should pay for the clean up and repair to the building. They have received tens of millions from unions across the country and aren’t broke like the state of WI is. If the attorney general of WI doesn’t sue for this money, the state isn’t broke enough.

I would have the union pick up the tab and then the unions will charge their members and then I’ll wake up from this dream I having about what should happen.

The teachers’ union needs to receive a bill for the clean-up which was done, no doubt, by workers receiving union wages.

Just like they said Gabby Giffords was shot by a wingnut. They left is always wrong. They are “programmed” to never miss an opportunity to disparage anyone who disagrees with their facist beliefs.

Please refresh my memory, how much ammo was found after ANY Tea Party rally? How much trash for that matter?

I would imagine there are tens of thousands of rounds at any given Tea Party rally. I am not able to confirm or deny having any at the rally I attended in PHX. Difference is ours stay in the magazine where they are intended to be.

The teachers union needs to be assessed for all the clean up and repair of the capitol and grounds. If this was a Tea Party protest you could bet any damages would be shown in graphic detail on the networks, along with clean up & repair estimates.

Then again if it were a Tea Party protest it would only have lasted a day because conservatives are expected to show up for work and do their jobs.

Someone I know was at the Capitol yesterday and was absolutely disgusted. They told me it was a “flophouse”. The protesters have turned our lovely capitol into a flophouse..thank you, teachers....this is the CHANGE that the Obama operatives have wrought. The Obama people are directly orchestrating the recall of the GOP Senators all over the state. They have been here for at least one week if not two or three and are rumored to have a budget of thirty million dollars to try and unseat the GOP senators. This is thirty million dollars of additional destruction, no money going to help us repair the capitol they have destroyed, or money to offset the budget cuts, but oodles of money to spread their destructive ways. Disgusting, disgusting, disgusting.

It’s been my experience that a .22 hollow-point can kill you just as dead as a .45... Just sayin’...

Notice the protestors refused leave when the court ordered them to do so. Eventually they left of their own accord. Missing part additional protestors were admitted by a door left open.

capitol Police were giving a thumbs up to the protestors. Notice it was the UW University Police Chief whom found and commented on the 41 22 caliber shells she found (earlier stories stated that she found them). It was not the Capitol Police that found them

In the pictures (may be in earlier post) you see the Capitol Police standing as a group. Any time I have been in a large group of people, I see police spread out in the area. Never have I seen police congregate in one area. Look at the body language and how they stand there as a group.

Collectively the entire Capitol Police Department needs to be fired and replaced with people whom will serve and protect irregardless of their own personal political bias. As well as having no skin in the game to speak, union rights and privileges. More BS to get the Police in the pocket of the Established democratic Hierachy of fraud and corruption.

My mother would have described people who acted like that as “low-class”. I used to wonder what she meant but not anymore.

I was in law enforcement for almost 10 years in my younger days and love good LE.

IMO, the Madison PD is doing a poor job.

Sometimes “keeping the peace” and enforcing the law can be properly done, but when they conflict as they do in Madison, enforcing the law must be the trump card every time. No ifs, ands or buts!!!

The mess is typical of freeloading socialists. Remember the mess left on the Washington Mall by union and socialist protesters during a rally last fall and the absolute pigsty created by the Obama inauguration? Note that the large Washington TEA party rally with hundreds of thousands participants left the Mall spotless.

“This is the result of not believing on the God of Israel ...”

I certainly agree with you in general about the Left.

However, many (some of my favorite relatives included) actually DO believe. Yet they do not comprehend God’s word correctly and are taught by misguiding preachers that charity can be accomplished by the force of government.

I pray for their comprehension skills.
