    Wisconsin Protesters Lock Their Heads To Metal Railings, And Become Their Own Metaphors

    Wisconsin Protesters Lock Their Heads To Metal Railings, And Become Their Own Metaphors

    Two protesters in the Madison, Wisconsin Capitol building strapped “U” shaped ultra-secure bicycle locks around her necks and locked themselves to a metal railing.

    As reported by JSOnline (h/t reader Leonard):

    Authorities removed two protesters who locked themselves to the railing of the Senate gallery Thursday.

    The action took place at a little after 12:20 p.m.

    Just after 11 a.m., the protesters, one man and one woman, used U-shaped bike locks to lock their necks to the railing as part of a demonstration against Gov. Scott Walker’s budget. Along with the two who locked themselves to the railing, a group of a dozen protesters loudly chanted “Kill the bill.”

    Senate President Mike Ellis (R-Neenah) gaveled the the legislative body into recess as a dozen State Patrol officers congregated in the gallery to address the situation.

    To cut the locks off the two protesters — Chris French, 20, and Bridgette O’Brien, 23 — Capitol Police called on the University of Wisconsin Police Department to bring in a special cutting device.

    Locking one’s head to a metal railing without a key is a pretty accurate metaphor for what the public employee unions want to do to the taxpayers and union members.

    There was an easier solution to the problem: 

     Turn out the lights, lock the doors, and go home.  And leave them there.

    One is reminded of a similar strategy for graffiti vandals; strip them naked except for shoes and turn them loose some place far away.

    Wow…. I was going to recommend just water-boarding them… but you guys… whooey.. you guys are ruthless.. LOL

    I LOVE when lefties do this kind of thing. It makes them look like utter lunatics to normal people, including indies and those not politically involved (yet). More union freaks chaining themselves to things, please.

    Don't forget to bill them for the process of cutting them free, and the equipment used, plus overtime. It can be tacked on top of their fine for littering, and whatever else they wind up being charged with.
