Cop Tells Pro-Walker Protester “You’re Going To Get Your Ass Kicked”


The Wisconsin Reporter has video of a pro-Scott Walker protester walking among the leftist activists and union members at the Tom Barrett rally. The guy, a former Marine and union member, was walking around with his sign, engaging the union members around him:

Then he was grabbed, literally, by the scruff of his neck and dragged out of the protest by a cop who told him he was going to get his “ass kicked.” When the guy protested his treatment at the hands of the cop, he was arrested.

So much for free speech.

I guess you could say the guy was being a bit provocative, both with his sign and his words, but since when was being provocative against the law? And isn’t stopping someone’s speech or protest because they might incite violence prior restraint?

And who should be held accountable for violence resulting from free speech, the speaker or those doing the violence?

    Until we institute thought crime, it’s behavior that defines crime.

      Actually, we already have.  They’re called “hate-crime laws.”

         Isn’t the term “hate-crime” redundant?

        When was the last time anyone was beaten…murdered…raped…robbed as the result of a ‘love-crime’ ?

        If there is “hate-crime” is there also ‘ambivalent-crime’ ?

        • flamemeister

          I would claim that many kinds of crime can be committed with little or no emotion of any kind.  One might even say that there are “love crimes.”  Necrophilia in some cases might qualify.  Certain types of serial killers murder people they like & keep them around the house or apartment as reliable companions who will listen to their insane rants without objection.  When they have festered to the point that they are no longer pleasant to have around, they bury them somewhere & get a new love.  Pretty damn fickle, I’d say!

  • SigFan

    Did the cop mean that he was going to kick the guy’s ass, or was he worried that the lefties would go off on him?  Either way, the cop had no cause to treat the guy the way he did.  He could have simply told him that what he was doing was dangerous and that he should leave – and if the guy didn’t want to leave until or unless a problem actually occurred it should have been hands-off.

      My hunch is he’s a union cop so it could have been taken either way IMO, sig.

    • two_amber_lamps

       My guess is the cop meant the crowd was going to kick his ass, but I think when the unnamed protestor wouldn’t roll over and do what he was told, El Offical hooked him up and arrested him. 

      Shameful to see someone’s 1st and 4th Amendment Rights abridged due to a cop’s overinflated ego. 

      • Roy_Bean

        If you watch the first few seconds of the video the cop says “I’m with you, you’re going to get your ass kicked”. 

        That police officer had two functions there, enforcing the law and keeping order.  Sometimes they have to choose.  That young ex-marine had a right to be there and should be admired for his guts walking into a hateful democrat rally like that.  The police officer knew that democrats are prone to violence and hatred is always simmering just under the surface and when it boils over innocent people get hurt.  Think of the democrat riots you have seen in the past, when they start to run wild they seem to lose what little good sense they have and they wreck everything and everyone.

  • sbark

    He should have asked the Cop what Oath he took when he got signed in………….an Oath to a Union or to a Constitution………..for sure not to a messianic figurehead……

    …….but an oath to a Liberal is as disposable as the truth, or giving their word…….

    Isnt that a basic problem with Liberalism……..their propensity to want to have a figurehead to rule them,  they really cant handle basic freedom,  they need a Messiah, a king figure,………and if not a figurehead……they bow to anyone of a dozen political religions at any one time…..golden calfs in more than one way.

    It is his job to protect and serve, his job was to arrest anybody who laid a hand on the walker supporter. The police made them selves scarce last summer when leftist were assaulting and threatening people all over the state. They were nowhere to be found when people were assaulted while peacefully standing at tables collecting signatures to recall flee baggers.

            Don’t forget to watch the movie…


            Good and thourough Documentary on the origin of political correctness.

            As it turns out it is a revision of the marxist concept of false consciousness and has very real similarities with policies made by the communists in the eastern bloc “in order to silence dissent.”

            The western variant originated in the “critical theory” of the Frankfurt School.

            Refusing to take any responsibility for their own beliefsystem and present their agenda in a direct and comprehensible manner,they found themselves content with “igniting the conflicts within capitalist societies”
            “in order to weaken them.”

            Promoting hedonism and making enemies of every thinkable grouping within the free world, they kept authorities comfortably busy on the homefront.

            Blacks and whites,
            husbands and wives,
            young and old,
            gay and straight etc.

            If gay-marriages were to become a majority preference one day, they would surely fight for the rights of the minority-group of individuals who want to marry their pets and criticise homosexuals for discriminating against people with a more polymorpheus sexuality than themselves.

            In essence many of the moronic professors now presiding over all the big social “studies” departments at american and european universities

            “are the wounded victims of this aspect of the cold war.”

            Getting a helping hand by the active measures of the soviet union because they had a
            “weakened sense of truth”,

            unable to resist the careful attack on academia,

            CHANTILLY, Va. –
            A Madrid-based investigative journalist
            “who has spent years researching” the Bilderberg group – that shadowy organization of

            “high-level leaders in finance and government” –

            is warning that there’s no “conspiracy theory”
            behind the group:

            (“It’s a conspiracy reality.”)

            Daniel Estulin,
            author of
            “The True Story of the Bilderberg Group,”
            contends people should care because the idea behind each and every Bilderberg meeting

            “is to create what they themselves call the aristocracy of purpose between European and North American elites on the best way “to manage the planet”.

            “In other words,”

            Estulin told WND in an email exchange in which he answered questions,

            “the creation of a global network of giant cartels, “more powerful than any nation on Earth”, destined to “control the necessities of life” of the rest of humanity.”

          Karl Marx, Lenin and Trotsky, all Jewish Freemasons,
          were essentially dysfunctional losers who were employed
          by the “Illuminist bankers” to hoodwink the masses.

          Lenin for example had been an unsuccessful lawyer
          who had only six cases in which he defended shoplifters.
          He lost them all.
          A week later he gave up the law
          “to become a “highly paid” revolutionary”.

          Lenin declared:
          “Peace means quite simply the domination of Communism
          over the entire world.”
          (Funny thing..So does sharia, huh?)

          His reign of terror caused nine million deaths but you
          never see him compared to Hitler.

          The secret police, the Cheka, dominated by Jews,
          (non religuos/non practicing like Marx and Soros 7.62)
          published the names of 1.7 million people they murdered
          in 1918-1919, including 300,000 priests.

          “A river of blood flowed through Russia,” Lina writes.
          “According to official Soviet Reports, 1,695,904 people
          were executed from January 1921 to April 1922.

          Among these victims were bishops, professors, doctors,
          officers, policemen, lawyers, civil servants, writers…

          Did Rothschild Write The Protocols of Zion ?

          “The Evil One is the satanic revolt against divine authority,
          revolt in which we see the fecund germ of all human emancipations, the revolution”.

          “Socialists recognize each other by the words,”
          ‘In the name of the one to whom a great wrong has been
          done.’ Satan [is] the eternal rebel, the first freethinker and the emancipator of worlds.” —

          The holy book of the socialists, “Das Kapital”, published on September 2, 1867, is especially revealing since this work

          Marx tolerated
          “no ideas but the Illuminist ones”
          which were later known as Marxist.
          ” Marxism merely gave the dark Illuminist powers a
          hypocritical method and a “verbose phraseology”,
          which they could use to justify “any kind”
          of enormity they committed.”

          Since this doctrine was unscientific, they would never
          in all their attempts be able to put the Marxist theories
