Walker Supporter Behaving Badly

The following post is based on reports from social media and from the video above. Zach W. at Blogging Blue has also covered this incident. His post is worth the read. I find myself with more questions than answers regarding what’s being shown on this video. Why would anyone say something to the effect of “You are being harassed and pretty soon you’re going to be killed” when they know they are being videotaped, especially when they know their company vehicle and license plate number are also on the video? In my humble opinion everyone should be condemning this behavior. Wisconsin, we are better than this. We can disagree politically without it coming to threats and or harassment. I have some “feelers” out there and hope to gather more information on this later in the day. Stay tuned for the developing story.

  1. I’ve watched the video, and read Blogging Blue’s post, but aside from the fact that the guy on camera acts like a jerk, it’s hard to appraise the incident. What was happening before the video began? What was the guy doing? What was the person taping him doing? Did the person taping do something to force the guy to stop his truck? There are too many unanswered questions to be able to judge the significance of what’s on the video. To be sure, the guy became verbally abusive, but by itself that isn’t a crime.

    DPW has a tall mountain to climb in recalling a sitting governor. I agree with their decision not to make an issue of incidents like this. Of course, if Walker people resort to violence, damage to property, etc., then it should become a police matter. Until that point, however, all energy and efforts should be focused on winning the recall election.
