Have no fear my little mobsters, you look better everyday, thanks to the public unions in Wisconsin. For your viewing pleasure a little video from Madison. Those champions of the middle class and keepers of the American Dream left a few calling cards behind, before disbanding. Consider it a little memento of their principled stance against the man, and yes, it comes with a price tag.
First up as workers cleaned up the grounds and surveyed the damage, they found some interesting items live ammo.
Authorities found dozens of rounds of live ammunition outside the state Capitol building in Madison, Wis., where protesters have gathered to rally against the governors budget repair bill.
Dane County Sheriffs deputies discovered 11 rounds near the State Street entrance to the building early Thursday, the Wisconsin State Journal reported.
Officials also found 29 rounds near the King Street entrance and one round near the North Hamilton Street entrance.
University of Wisconsin-Madison Police Chief Susan Riseling said the bullets were 22-caliber long rifle hollow points.
Officers conducted a sweep the grassy areas and bushes outside the Capitol, and Department of Administration lawyer Steven Means asked that the Capitol be cleared for a security check, the Wisconsin State Journal reported.

They should just lock the toilets and give out free beer.
The union should pay for the clean up and repair to the building. They have received tens of millions from unions across the country and aren’t broke like the state of WI is. If the attorney general of WI doesn’t sue for this money, the state isn’t broke enough.
You just know that the libs are going to say that the bullets were planted.
I would have the union pick up the tab and then the unions will charge their members and then I’ll wake up from this dream I having about what should happen.
I feel better now. Union thugs only packing .22s !! Wouldn’t be much of a contest vs real Americans :)
The teachers’ union needs to receive a bill for the clean-up which was done, no doubt, by workers receiving union wages.
Bill the AWOL Democrats.
Just like they said Gabby Giffords was shot by a wingnut. They left is always wrong. They are “programmed” to never miss an opportunity to disparage anyone who disagrees with their facist beliefs.
Please refresh my memory, how much ammo was found after ANY Tea Party rally? How much trash for that matter?
I would imagine there are tens of thousands of rounds at any given Tea Party rally. I am not able to confirm or deny having any at the rally I attended in PHX. Difference is ours stay in the magazine where they are intended to be.
Then again if it were a Tea Party protest it would only have lasted a day because conservatives are expected to show up for work and do their jobs.
Someone I know was at the Capitol yesterday and was absolutely disgusted. They told me it was a “flophouse”. The protesters have turned our lovely capitol into a flophouse..thank you, teachers....this is the CHANGE that the Obama operatives have wrought. The Obama people are directly orchestrating the recall of the GOP Senators all over the state. They have been here for at least one week if not two or three and are rumored to have a budget of thirty million dollars to try and unseat the GOP senators. This is thirty million dollars of additional destruction, no money going to help us repair the capitol they have destroyed, or money to offset the budget cuts, but oodles of money to spread their destructive ways. Disgusting, disgusting, disgusting.
It’s been my experience that a .22 hollow-point can kill you just as dead as a .45... Just sayin’...
Notice the protestors refused leave when the court ordered them to do so. Eventually they left of their own accord. Missing part additional protestors were admitted by a door left open.
capitol Police were giving a thumbs up to the protestors. Notice it was the UW University Police Chief whom found and commented on the 41 22 caliber shells she found (earlier stories stated that she found them). It was not the Capitol Police that found them
In the pictures (may be in earlier post) you see the Capitol Police standing as a group. Any time I have been in a large group of people, I see police spread out in the area. Never have I seen police congregate in one area. Look at the body language and how they stand there as a group.
Collectively the entire Capitol Police Department needs to be fired and replaced with people whom will serve and protect irregardless of their own personal political bias. As well as having no skin in the game to speak, union rights and privileges. More BS to get the Police in the pocket of the Established democratic Hierachy of fraud and corruption.
My mother would have described people who acted like that as “low-class”. I used to wonder what she meant but not anymore.
IMO, the Madison PD is doing a poor job.
Sometimes “keeping the peace” and enforcing the law can be properly done, but when they conflict as they do in Madison, enforcing the law must be the trump card every time. No ifs, ands or buts!!!
bet union members get paid to clean it up
7.5 Million dollars damage? I highly doubt that....bet I could do it for less than 100,000
I dont understand why they let all those people in the statehouse in the first place.... where was the fire marshall? Oh, I bet he was a union member!
Bill the Unions immediately or file suit...
