According to the Huffington Post, Nick Milroy, a 73rd Assembly District Representative member in Wisconsin, went to “retrieve some clothes from his office” and was tackled to the ground by police officers (Huffington Post par 2). Their reason? Because the building is closed to keep protesters from staying the night.
The funniest part of this whole ordeal is that Nick is actually allowed in to the Capitol building, but the police officers didn’t know who he was.
I find this to be a complete squelching of our collective voices as a nation, and for Wisconsin as a state. The building should be opened to any and all people, because people have every right to be in their State Capitol building. I wonder how this will turn out.
