|David Erwin - A disgrace|
Update: We just phoned our state representative requesting a public statement condemning what is happening outside of our collective legislators' offices. This bunch of sworn police officers appear to be free of ethics, commitment to a democratic republic, and not a lack of restraint but rather an active and abiding hostility towards our citizenry. Please consider phoning your state representatives today. See Wisconsin State Reps, and Wisconsin State Senators for quick contact info.
The video below shows an appalling incident committed by Officer Michael J. Syphard within feet and full view of children, as clearly shown.
Time to go federal with a civil rights complaint against these, and let's be honest, punks in uniform. This bunch would do better gang-banging, kind of like their doing now.
"Capitol Police Chief David Erwin exhibits (appalling) judgment in allowing Officer Michael J. Syphard grab(ing) videographer Arthur Kohl-Riggs and (throwing) him to the ground without any kind of warning or request to move," for filming.
"According to on-line court records, last year Syphard was charged with the crimes of Disorderly Conduct (a misdemeanor) and Intimidate Victim/Use or Attempt Force (a felony). Those records indicate that he entered a guilty plea to the Disorderly Conduct charge and the other charge was dismissed. Records indicate that his case remains open, having been referred to the Deferred Prosecution Program," the Wisconsin Citizens Media Cooperative reports.
Suggestion: At the 42-second mark of this video, someone with screenshot capability should capture this instant as the children stand there staring open-mouthed, agasp at this crime.
