Wisconsin: Now they're arresting elected officials, Raging Grannies and 14 year old kids

Day 12 of Mass Arrests for Singing in Wisconsin’s Capitol Building

Today August 15, 2013 is the 12th day of mass arrests of singers in Wisconsin’s Capitol Building where over 200 citations have been given out since July 24th, primarily for assembling without a permit.

Isthmus reported that today a Madison alder was arrested and Greg Gelembiuk observed that only an average of 20 participants were involved throughout the day’s singing on the rotunda floor. Several Raging Grannies were arrested and word has it that a 14-year-old and 16-year-old were also arrested.



A number of Madison alders ventured to the State Capitol on Thursday to show support for the Solidarity Sing Along. Ald. Mark Clear, a former president of the Common Council, was arrested for participating in the event.

“An officer walked up to me and said I was participating in an illegal event and told me to immediately disperse,” said Clear, who was reached by phone. “I politely declined.” Clear said he was finishing a rendition of “This Land is Your Land.”

10. Love, love, love

That Jason marked out the parking spot for the cops. Jason also has more citations for singing than anyone else, unless Brandon has caught back up.



And I can't go without saying
