When Cops Choose to Honor Unions, Not Law
American Thinker: Wisconsin after the Union Takeover
Common citizens and private businesses are the next objects of union wrath. Director of the Wisconsin Professional Police Association Jim Palmer signed a letter giving businesses who donated to Gov. Walker’s campaign one week to publicly denounce Walker or face a union-organized boycott.
Sendik’s Food Market has refused to capitulate. Consequently, their doors were super-glued shut at one of their Milwaukee locations.
In Merrill, a group trying to recall Democrat Sen. Jim Holperin set up a table outside the Lincoln County Courthouse. Soon union protestors arrived and surrounded the group’s table, waving signs and screaming through megaphones. In a press release, the group reported that even as the pro-union crowd chanted “this is what Democracy looks like,” one of the protesters, “pretending to be interested in signing the petition, wrote profanity across a partially collected petition form, then began ripping up the completed petitions that were in close proximity.”
Pro-union forces remained around the table and prevented people from reaching the petitions. According to the group, police officers stood by and did nothing.
