Arrest in Protest at Wisconsin Capitol Could (SHOULD!) Result in Felony

Madison — An arrest during the usually peaceful Capitol singalong protests resulted in an altercation Monday between police and a protester and a tentative felony battery charge against him.

The charge being recommended to prosecutors is the most severe since labor protests began here in February 2011 and since police stepped up arrests during the noon protests one month ago.

Also Monday, 21 Democratic lawmakers called for auditors to look into the circumstances surrounding the 11.7% pay increase that Gov. Walker's administration gave to the Capitol Police chief earlier this year.

The incident leading to the felony charge occurred about midway through Monday's protest when demonstrator Christopher J. Terrell, 25, sat down and was approached by police. While they were in the process of cuffing him his brother Damon Terrell, 22, was pinned by officers in a wrestling match that lasted about 25 seconds.

If they did not apply for and receive a permit to perform on capitol grounds, they should be arrested.

Yet I respectfully disagree.

“A law repugnant to the Consitution is void.” pg 5 U. S. 180 Marbury v. Madison.

This has been challenged for over 200 years and still stands

Murdock Vs Pennsylvania 319 USSCR 105

No state can convert a secured liberty (right) to a privilege and issue a license and fee for it

And this applies to the notion that you need a drivers license, or weapons permit!

Shuttleworth Vs Birmingham 216 A void law, one can ignore the license and engage in that right with impunity.


With respects.

For any of you who don’t live here - this has been going on FOR TWO YEARS NOW! Daily.

The hippies TRASHED our Capitol & grounds at GREAT expense to We The Taxpayer.

We have a new Capitol Police Chief and he is taking care of business, but he needs to do more. Enough was ENOUGH two YEARS ago!
