Police Support the Public Unions in Wisconsin

Wisconsin police raid are part of the government union intimidation tactics against supporters of a measure to reign in public-employee benefits.

This isn't from WND or the Enquirer.  The National Review is conservative but not exactly a bunch of screaming radicals with AR-15s.

Cindy Archer, one of the lead architects of Wisconsin’s Act 10 — also called the “Wisconsin Budget Repair Bill,” it limited public-employee benefits and altered collective-bargaining rules for public-employee unions — was jolted awake by yelling, loud pounding at the door, and her dogs’ frantic barking. The entire house — the windows and walls — was shaking.

She looked outside to see up to a dozen police officers, yelling to open the door. They were carrying a battering ram.

There are several other anecdotes in the report.  None of the people treated this way were criminals.  This was part of the second "John Doe" investigation launched by Milwaukee Democrat District Attorney John Chisholm that targeted conservatives and conservative groups.  Chisholm was given carte blanche by rubber-stamp judge Barbara Kukla to conduct investigations while keeping the target's identity secret. 

Because of Wisconsin's "John Doe" law, the individuals so terrorized by Chisholm and his police state gang were not allowed to speak about their ordeal to anyone, including a lawyer.  Stalin would be proud. 

You need to go to the link and read the whole thing, while you wonder why this hasn't been extensively reported upon in the nightly news (/sarcasm). 

Why did Chisholm go after people for simply exercising their First Amendment rights to advocate for political reform?  Well, in addition to the fact that Chisholm is a lawyer and Democrat:

As a former prosecutor told journalist Stuart Taylor, Chisholm’s wife was a teachers’-union shop steward who was distraught over Act 10’s union reforms. He said Chisholm “felt it was his personal duty” to stop them.
Yep, nothing like using your official position to help further enrich your shop-steward wife.  I would like to know, too, how much these bogus, politically-motivated "investigations" cost Wisconsin tax-payers.  Chisholm should be on the hook for every dime. 

This makes me sick.


  1. It would be nice if politicians, lawyers, judges and cops that violate our rights were rightfully prosecuted themselves.
    DA's and judges, in fabricated cases like this, who abuse their authority and power should go to prison, after a fair trial of course.

    Union cops who enforce these unlawful orders are also violating the Constitution, for personal gain.
    Yet another reason among many, that govt. jobs should never be allowed to be unionized to begin with.
    I have no sympathy for cops who blindly (or not so blindly) become jack-booted thugs for Unethical, immoral, law-breaking politicians, DA's and judges who have no qualms violating our rights and liberties to enrich themselves.

    Excellent post, Mush.

  2. That's the problem. These guys never or very rarely face the consequences of their abuse. From Obama to Lois Lerner to a guy like Chisholm, they don't have to live by the "rule of law" they impose on us.

  3. (in surfer voice) NOT COOL DUDE!

    That is amazingly scary/bad.

    Because of Wisconsin's "John Doe" law, the individuals so terrorized by Chisholm and his police state gang were not allowed to speak about their ordeal to anyone, including a lawyer. Stalin would be proud.
