An out-of-state security company providing armed guards for a proposed mining site in northern Wisconsin is standing down at least for now after it was revealed that the firm isn't licensed to provide private security inside Wisconsin.
A spokesman for mining firm Gogebic Taconite LLC said that his firm had asked Bulletproof Securities to withdraw its guards from the proposed mine area until it obtains a license to operate in the state.
Bob Seitz of Gogebic made the announcement Wednesday afternoon after being contacted by a Journal Sentinel reporter earlier in the day, though Seitz said that Gogebic had first learned of the issue from another source on Tuesday evening.

About 20 years ago there was an activist raid on a research center that was doing experiments on infectious disease. They released all the animals, some of which were infected with incredibly deadly disease vectors. Thankfully, the animals must have died before passing on anything contagious. But the possibilities are there.
Recent explosions at chemical plants may have been the result of unauthorized intruders stealing or simply causing trouble. (Some of the stuff at the plant that exploded in Texas can apparently be used to make drugs.)
Sounds like the usual suspects from Madison.
