51. This is just like the military in Egypt

The police joined with the citizens instead of their dictator boss. It seems that regular people everywhere aren't going to take it anymore! I am so proud of Americans today, and the WS police for standing up for right. Gov. Walker tried use them as "brownshirts" but they wouldn't do it!
