Wisconsin State Constitution (Article 1, Section 4) states: The right of the people peaceably to assemble, to consult for the common good, and to petition the government, or any department thereof, shall never be abridged.
Apparently Wisconsin State Capitol Police officers, who the last time I checked swore an oath to uphold the Wisconsin Constitution, have decided that they’d rather do Chief Dave Erwin’s bidding so they can keep their $4 per hour pay raise rather than upholding the Constitution as they swore they would.
Watch as Capitol Police officers arrest a woman with a child for the crime of singing.
Not content with their arrest of the woman in the video above, Capitol Police also arrested Phil Gerboc, a Franciscan friar, as well as a Lutheran pastor who subsequently suffered a cardiac incident.
This is absolutely shameful, and the glorified security guards who are effecting arrests of retirees, moms, and clergy for nothing more than free speech and assembly ought to be ashamed of themselves.
