If these were Tea Partiers, what do you think the police would do?

Of course, that’s a ridiculous scenario, because the Tea Party is respectful of laws and property while the other side isn’t compelled to play by those rules, and unfortunately they have the blessing of the police:

The occupation of the Wisconsin Capitol by protesters fighting efforts to strip public workers of union bargaining rights carried on Sunday after police decided not to forcibly remove demonstrators and end a nearly two-week-long sit-in.

Roughly three hours after a deadline to vacate the building had passed and as police officers continued to look on quietly, protest coordinator Erika Wolf took to a microphone and announced: “There’s really awesomely good news — that we’re going to be able to stay here tonight.”

A cheer went up from the several hundred protesters who had ignored a request from the state agency that oversees the Capitol to leave by 4 p.m. so that the normally immaculate building could get a thorough cleaning.

Leftists rarely care about anything being clean or respected — not even a war memorial — so no surprise there. But by the police doing nothing they’re inviting more of this behavior. Remember though that the police are also unionized, so the question of whether the cops will ultimately put unions or laws first may have been answered in Wisconsin.

I saw an officer being interviewed this morning, and he said “We’re expecting everyone to act in accordance with the laws, but we’ve made a decision not to force anybody out or make arrests.” When leftist thugs heard that, they heard “anything goes.” Running a city on the left-wing honor system… what could possibly go wrong?

Michelle M. has a picture from the slumber party here. Now the Capitol probably smells like a NYC cab, and it could be coming to a state capitol near you.

    no people have been leaving and actually the police are being cool. i think after the protesters DON'T leave after repeated requests to leave then they'll be justifiably arrested. the inside of the capitol looks like a hippie commune .. time to go 0_o

    Time to bring in the porta-potties, set them up outside in the cold, and turn off the heat and lock the restroom doors ! Pipe in loud patriotic music, turn the lights up bright and kill the wall outlets !

    Make the protesters as uncomfortable as possible !

    Start laying some limburger cheese around the halls of the capitol – there is plenty of it to be found in Wisconsin and between the stink of the cheese and the stink of the protestors – that oughta drive em out.

    The governor should be able to have the State Guard do the job of clearing the Capitol if the police union refuses.And if the police union won’t allow the use of “their” jails,fence the hippies in a schoolyard,along with the police.
