Those peace loving Union Members are at it again….
MADISON — Dozens of rounds of live rifle ammunition were found Thursday scattered around the grounds of the Wisconsin Capitol, where large crowds of people have been protesting Gov. Scott Walker's proposal to rescind nearly all collective bargaining rights for most public employee unions.
State attorneys revealed the ammunition discovery during a hearing in Dane County Circuit Court, where unions were asking a judge to lift restricted-access rules that have been in place since Sunday and swing open the doors to the public. State attorneys cited the ammunition while suggesting the building should instead be closed for a security sweep.
State officials said about 100 demonstrators remained in the building Thursday, still ignoring what was a 4 p.m. Sunday deadline for people to depart so the building so it could be cleaned. Since then, police adopted a policy allowing in new protesters only when an equal number leave the building.
University of Wisconsin Police Chief Susan Riseling testified that 41 rounds of .22-caliber ammunition were found Thursday morning scattered at several locations outside the Capitol. No guns were found with them.
Those kind, gentle, Union people left their ammunition scattered around. What a bunch of peaceful people.Technorati Tags: Ammo,Outside,Wisconsin,Capitol,peace,Union,Gazette,MADISON,ammunition,Scott,Walker,proposal,rights,employee,State,Dane,Circuit,Court,rules,deadline,policy,Police,Chief,Susan,caliber,Members,demonstrators,protesters,attorneys
