Campbell Police Block Off Street Enabling Union Bullies (Cops and Teachers) To Harass Dan Kapanke Outside His House After Just Receiving Death Threats
Aren't the cops supposed to enforce law and order? Why are the police closing off an entire street, therefore enabling the protesters to harass someone outside their private residence, and also impede traffic flow? Was it a wise decision for the police to assist in a protest at the home of a politician who has just received death threats? Also police stated that people have been throwing nails on Kapanke's driveway and continuously honking their horn as they drive by his house. Maybe because police don't want to cross the "thin blue line." Outside of Kapanke's home protesting was an off duty Onalaska Police Officer Lisa Gerbig. News Channel 8 incorrectly reported that Gerbig is a La Crosse Police Officer. One protesting teacher Jon Morschhauser (Longfellow Middle School) admitted that what they were doing "might be viewed as a little intrusive." This another example of how the police have neglected their duty to enforce the law with the protesters in Madison and throughout the state. Lets compare the police action in dealing with the union protesters to the police action taken against the LaCrosseWatchodog last Oct. for attempting to film a public debate held at UWL. One LaCrosseWatchdog blogger was arrested and fined while another threatened with arrest.
Can you imagine the outrage there would have been from the media if the TEA party would have protested outside Ron Kind's house on French Island after his vote for Obamacare? I can't envision the French Island Cops making it easy for TEA party protesters to harass Ron Kind outside his home, especially if he would have just received a death threat like Kapanke received. I guess you can't expect to be treated equal by the police when you don't agree with them politically. Police Officers have one of the most powerful positions in society and should remain above politics. Can Dan Kapanke supporters expect to treated fairly from the cops? Are they more likely to be pulled over if they have a Dan Kapanke bumper sticker on their car?
Dan Kapanke gave an interview with FoxNews as the protesters were outside his house.
