Videos: State Police Pepper Spraying Michigan Protesters & former Dem Congressman sprayed



Republican version of "democracy" at work. Pepper sprayed for exercising their first amendment rights. Welcome to the fascist state of Michigan under Republican rule. Heart breaking.

Former Democratic congressman Mark Schauer said he was pepper-sprayed by police Tuesday while leading anti-right-to-work protesters outside the state Capitol.

Schauer said he was part of a crowd outside the Capitolís north wing as the Michigan House was voting on controversial right-to-work measures. Schauer said police came to move the protesters away from the building, and he tried to negotiate a line away from the Capitol that police would accept when he and ďa numberĒ of people were sprayed.

6. Bumping this -- Michael Moore's tweet gets all of the attention -- why?

DU totally perplexes me. Let this sink again and get all excited about a celeb's 6-word tweet. Whatever.
