‘Use live ammunition’ against Wisconsin protesters, Indiana official says
By David Edwards
One official in Indiana suggested over the weekend that riot police should use deadly force on those protesting Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s plan to strip unions of their rights.
A Saturday tweet from Mother Jones reported on the likelihood that police would soon be clearing the Wisconsin Capitol building of demonstrators.
“Use live ammunition,” a Twitter user named JCCentCom replied.
When confronted, the Twitter user stood by his words, insisting that the protesters were “political enemies” and “thugs.”
