A TV report also said that someone who spit on the singers was also arrested. Anyone know if the spitter is a now banned former member of this forum?

Another sad day for Wisconsin.

They are happening too often now.

If this were December and they were singing carols would they have been arrested? Doubtful.

I'm glad they are arresting these dangerous criminals. Who knows what sorts of horrors this woman might have inflicted on the citizens of this state.

No kidding. The rot from within takes a bit longer to manifest itself, but when it does ... ugh.

I think the charges were protesting without a permit, not singing. But it does seem like a free speech violation.

Sounds like Chief Irwin the Coward didn't even show up and instead a recording of his was played. What a jerk.

All they need to do is incorporate. Then the Solidarity Singers become one person. Problem solved in a way any Republican could appreciate.

I think this was tongue-in-cheek, but on a legal basis it might actually work. I think the chief of Capitol Police is actually Walker's version of Mini-Me.

Times like this make me wish Masel was still around.


Of course he'd be at the Capitol....probably with a group of 18 other people who call themselves "The Freedom Chorus", daring the cops to arrest 'em.

Why couldn't they just group themselves in slightly separated circles of 19? They would then be separate groups, each under the limit.
