Police Union Announces Solidarity with Occupation of State Capitol (via Understory)

Yesterday, the Police have just disobeyed orders to remove protesters who have been occupying the State Capitol for nearly two weeks now. The demonstrators were to be removed at 4pm Friday.

Hundreds of police marched into the Capitol Rotunda and announced:

“We have been ordered by the legislature to kick you all out at 4:00 today. But we know what’s right from wrong. We will not be kicking anyone out, in fact, we will be sleeping here with you!”

They continued…

“This is not a budget issue, this is a civil rights issue. Mr. Walker, let me tell you, we know who YOU work for! We work for all of these people!”
