ICYMI: Madison Protester Defense Fail

Written by Nancy LaRoche.

Did you hear the excuses from convicted protesters on trial in Madison last week? From the MacGiver Institute:

Six Madison protesters were on trial Tuesday for Obstructing/Resisting an officer after a rally at the State Capitol on August 25th. They argued they had a right to be there and that the police never directly ordered them to leave. After a year of protesters getting arrested and receiving citations, this could have been the first time they faced a jury.

Attorney: How would he (officer) have done his job in closing and securing the Capitol if you thirteen would have remained inside?

Defendant: Wait until I got bored and left.

This is what dumbocracy looks like. The jury found all thirteen guilty and ordered them to pay fines with court fees.
