    Guess where: “a man dumped a beer over the head of a state lawmaker”

    Three Republican lawmakers were confronted in a Madison, Wisconsin restaurant by a man who poured beer over them when a bartender stopped him from videotaping (via Wisconsin Reporter):

    Madison Police responded to a disturbance at the Inn on the Park, 22 S. Carroll St., Wednesday night after a man dumped a beer over the head of a state lawmaker. The bartender said the man yelled out something like, “Money” and “Damn Republicans.” The beer was poured atop a 43-year old Burlington, WI man. It also splashed onto two other state lawmakers. All indicated the suspect swore at them, and called them criminals. He was accompanied by a man with a video camera. The bartender asked the videographer to turn it off. She says following the request, the suspect then took the glass of beer and emptied it onto the lawmaker’s head. The suspect then fled. The lawmaker, who took the direct hit, indicated the suspect has been harassing him since February, but up until this point, it had only been verbal. He did not know the suspect’s name, but a female State Capitol employee, who was with the group, was able to provide police with a name, and said Capitol Police would have his contact information. The MPD called Capitol Police and obtained a couple of possible addresses for the suspect, as well as a couple of possible phone numbers. Officers attempted to find the suspect, but could not locate him. He will likely face a tentative charge of disorderly conduct.

    The perp was accompanied by videographer?  Sounds like it started as an ambush interview and escalated when the bartender intervened.

    The perp has been identified by the MacIver Institute as Miles Kristan, who appeared in this video:

    That self-incriminating video ought to be enough to get a restraining order on CJ, which I’m sure he would violate. We can curse Michael Moore for one more thing, inspiring these idiots. I’m surprised at the lack of protection Vos appears to have, and how close CJ and his photographer get to them.

    The problem when one side escalates a conflict is that the other side, as some point, will feel the need to make a quantum jump in the escalation. The left has been escalating the conflict. I don’t see them backing down, and they will be surprised when the conflict escalates back at them. “Will no man rid me of this……?”

    The video was, well…disturbing at best. A perfect example of classic liberal douchebaggery here. What makes Miles here believe that his shouts and insinuations merit anything different than a typical street panhandler?

    Just another idiot progressive thinking he can change the world by finding someone to blame for his own miserable existence. They should put something in the water…

    “Officers attempted to find the suspect, but could not locate him.”
    Did they check for him sitting in the middle of the Capital Rotunda?

    Yeah, are these the same police officers who cleared out the capitol building in Wisconsin and protected republican law makers going to work? Union police do not protect the citizenry but obey the orders of union bosses. Public service unions need to be abolished now.

    What’s with the crazy left accosting people in restaurants and bars and abusing them verbally or physically? One would almost think the left think the right is not allowed to dine out in public or even to exist.

    Michelle Malkin can write a sequel “Unhinged: The Wisconsin Edition” off these guys. Seriously, this is dangerous territory. Loons like this think any-means-necessary applies to their righteous cause; it can’t end well. The guy in the video was annoying at the start, but over-the-top creepy by the end. Screaming contradictory nonsense at Vos showed how far removed from reality these types are.

    Several commenters on this thread have seemed to express surprise the summoned Wisconsin police officers referred to here were less than effective. The surprise must be because the commenters are not Wisconsin residents and are mistakenly comparing experiences with real cops to actions of the Wisconsin unionized enforcement officers {WUEO]. The two are not the same. Real cops enforce laws evenhandedly and protect the public. WUEO protect themselves and their supporters and enforce only orders they collectively “deem” to be appropriate. In non-union cases it apparently takes some type of ad hoc job action vote before they can act. Organized obstruction is their mantra.

    But there is no truth to the rumor they changed the wording of the graphic on their squad cars to “to protest and to picket”. Yet.
