Arrests in the Wisconsin Capitol last night, outside the Assembly doors. We’d been cleared out of the gallery by hypersensitive, self-victimizing Republicans. They seemed to fear having citizens present while voting on this appalling mining bill would be too much to bear. People of course got more furious, being locked out of parts of their statehouse – again – and barred by a variety of troopers and police.
My friends CJ & Damon Terrell were taken away drumming for literally 15 seconds apiece. They just got out on bail two hours ago, charged approximately a hundred dollars for each second they drummed – $1,450 bail apiece.
Troopers also saw fit to take a 12-year-old girl into custody. ‘Cause we’re that dangerous in Wisconsin.
