    And that's exactly what they are doing - Serving and protecting the public by working to counter a direct threat to democracy in Wisconsin.

    Now that's just silly. A democraticaly elected governor and congress deciding how to close a multi billion dollar deficit is a threat to democracy, simply because you don't agree with the way they chose to do it? Get over yourself.

    The police that were involved should be suspended and probably fired for doing what they did while in uniform and on duty.

    They can wear whatever they like. While on duty, they ought to be doing their duty. But in this instance, are they on duty during this protest? Nothing in the video suggests that they are.

    Any idea what the surrounding event was while these police officers were dropping their little bombshell?? (the singers and such??)

    I finally watched it, and the video is being run in reverse. You can see people walking backwards. The police were taking it down, not utting it up. Too funny.

    There are laws against cops engaging in political activities while in uniform. So, no.. They really can't really wear whatever they like.

    it doesn't matter. you don't engage in any form of political activism while in uniform.
