There have been violent riots in Wisconsin's capital of Madison, where a group of about 150 demonstrators threw rocks at police officers on Saturday night, according to WITI-TV. At least 75 stores were damaged or looted overnight.
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel politics and statehouse reporter Patrick Marley tweeted, "Police chief says they aren't arresting people tonight." Interim Madison Police Chief Vic Wahl said his officers stood back during the protests.
While Madison didn't do much to prevent the barrage of looting in the city, officials want citizens to know that church services of more than 50 people will absolutely not be tolerated.
Wisconsin priests were reportedly warned by health officials from Madison and Dane counties that if they opened their churches and had crowds of more than 50 people at their religious services, they face a fine of $1,000.
The letter sent out to religious leaders allegedly threatened that there could be "government watchers" present at church services.

Tell the mayor the looters are holding a church service
Welcome to Communist Red China.
Hold the church service. Call it a protest.
The rioters are not practicing social distancing. So shouldn’t the police be going after them for that reason even if they don’t want to go after them for rioting?
I like that many Commie businesses were looted in Madisonistan.
Liberals infected with a virus that makes them stupid or violent or both.
Great idea, then let's play Romans and Christians; we'll be the Romans.
Time for a police state for awhile. Bring in military I don’t care stop this
I agree. The communists are quickly taking control of the country.
It’s time for drastic measures. It’s past time to take out the trash.
It would appear that attending church services, in defiance of government edict, IS drastic, and too drastic for most people to commit.
Have an idea for my pastor:
Riots planned for next Sunday;
Riots will be held at 7:30am, 9:00am, 10:30am(Spanish Riot) and a High Riot at Noon.
There will be a Saturday 5:00pm Vigil Riot as well
Let us have overnight riots too, complete with large crowds of rioters, Latin chanting, lit torches (candles), and no stupid face masks, as the police apparently don’t enforce any laws, even perhaps the previously unconstitutional diktats that forbid worship of God, at night.
Sadly, you’re right.
Marxist Madison. Been that way since the 60’s. Time to sue the crap out of the police chief, mayor, city council and anyone else who let this happen.
Or you could move to a sane state and tell Wisconsin to go f**k itself.
The Supremacist Court gods in black dresses stand by these anti-religious liberty lockdown orders but in light of the tolerance for public riots without arrest, the state has no case to discriminate against Christians engaging in peaceful worship.
John Roberts, you F-ed up.
Years ago Kruschev landed in Madison for a visit. A short time later he said, “ Get me the hell out of here. There are too many commies.” Nothing has changed.
