Our troubles and travails here in Wisconsin are becoming epic, as I've just seen by the Wisconsin Senate Republicans' flight to Washington, on their whirlwind tin cup tour. They'll need that money, because you really need to buy a lot of air time to say that (ballpark) 100,000 Saturday protesters must be wrong.

It's quite a list: violation of the open meetings law, handcuffs on the assembly door that are a fire code violation at least or false imprisonment (ask OJ), accepting a flight from a fake David Koch, some ugly agent provocateur conspiracy about which I suspect the Madison Chief of Police has still not heard back from the Governor.

Add impersonation of a police officer to the list. Remember the Wackenhut rent a cops that Walker used to ruin the Milwaukee County budget? Well who do we have here?

The man, wearing a golden eagle pin on a red background, similar to Wackenhut Security's logo, was asked for proof that he was a police officer. He simply replied "I am a cop, so..." and began dialing his phone. It sounds like he says into his blue tooth ear piece "Dave speaking" at the 1.47 mark. He eventually walks away and doesn't return.

Well, Dave, I think you've just impersonated a police officer. Walker can't get real cops to do his dirty work, or graduate from Marquette University (rife with rumors of being expelled on moral grounds), so he hires criminal liars.

So we have a bunch of suits in this video, the first in all probably being a Wackenhut (soon to be GS4) rental, teamed up with perhaps a member of the Highway Patrol who will not admit to it.

A suit, a lapel pin with an eagle, and a stroll with the Governor, and you can call yourself a cop, too! Very nice for intimidation purposes.

Kudos to!

Gotta go to bed now. Goodnight!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
