Death of Free Speech in Wisconsin

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Vatic Note:   This does not surprise me one bit.   Its both an abomination and a total violation of the states’ citizens Constitutional Rights.   The good news was it eventually got overturned.   But can you imagine???? I read this below and I am an old broad, but I remember, while growing up that free speech was indeed, “FREE”,  only action against someone was slander and then that was civil.  Not a crime. 

Death of Free Speech in This State
http://survivaljoe.net/blog/the-death-of-free-speech-in-this-state/http://survivaljoe.net/blog/the-death-of-free-speech-in-this-state/
By Walt G,  Survival Joe,
This state is playing a dangerous game.
If you’re running for office or involved in the political process here, you better keep quiet — or else.

In Wisconsin, political incumbents and operatives bully opponents and squash free speech:

In Wisconsin, prosecutors may also impose what’s called the “John Doe” rule: Don’t tell anyone that you’re being investigated, not even your kids, your spouse and definitely not the media.

Prosecutors claim secrecy is needed to “protect privacy” of people under investigation; if charges are dropped, no one need know that you had been accused. But in truth, says Eric O’Keefe, another limited-government activist who Wisconsin prosecutors investigated, “This is about shutting us up. That’s all it is. It is a speech suppression play.”

It’s also a way for political insiders to punish their opponents. O’Keefe is a Republican, and the lead prosecutor, Milwaukee District Attorney John Chisholm, is a Democrat, but two Republican insiders signed off on the raids, too. “I take cold comfort in having my constitutional rights trampled by both parties,” says O’Keefe.

We who support smaller government expect retaliation from incumbent politicians. But children shouldn’t be punished. Sixteen year-old Noah Johnson was home alone when cops banged on his family’s door at dawn. His parents left early that morning.

It took the Wisconsin Supreme Court five years to right this wrong.
What took so long?

And who went to jail?

Silence from the politicians of Wisconsin.
