Head of Police union slams Senate for Abuse of Power.

HEAD OF POLICE UNION SLAMS SENATE FOR ABUSE
OF POWER AND PLEADS FOR SANITY


MADISON—The head of the Wisconsin Professional Police Association
slammed Senate Republicans today after they ordered the detention of 14
Democratic Senators staying in Illinois “with or without force.”

“Politics aside, encouraging the forcible detention of duly elected lawmakers
because they won’t allow you to dictate with a free hand is an unreasonable
abuse of police power,” said WPPA Executive Director Jim Palmer. “Due to the
fact that Wisconsin officers lack any jurisdiction across state lines, does Senator
Fitzgerald intend to establish a ‘lawmaker border patrol? The thought of using
law enforcement officers to exercise force in order to achieve a political objective
is insanely wrong and Wisconsin sorely needs reasonable solutions and not
potentially dangerous political theatrics.”

Fred Risser Raskolnikov trudges into the office of the Inspector, Steve Fitzgerald Porfiry, to surrender. He confesses his crime and is banished to penal servitude in Hurley.

Inspector Scott Fitzgerald Javert sneaks through the barricades in his search for the fugitive Jon Valjean Erpenbach. He's set-upon by union thugs but is saved by Erpenbach. Torn between duty and his gratitude towards Erpenbach, he throws himself into Lake Mendota and drowns.

I just hope none of the Senators compound their crimes by returning to the state with colored oleo.
