Peaceful protesters? Live ammunition found at Madison Capitol

Madison Police Chief Sue Riseling said in a Dane County courtroom on Thursday that police this morning found 41rounds of .22-caliber ammunition outside of the State Capitol.

Riseling said 11 rounds were found outside the State St. entrance, 29 rounds near the King St. entrance and one round near the Hamilton St. area.

She testified that, “I don’t like to see live ammunition when I see significant crowds,” she said before Dane County Circuit Judge John Albert. “The presence of that doesn’t thrill me.”

In light of the disclosure, the Department of Administration may ask Albert for an order to conduct a thorough police search and possibly vacate the inside of the Capitol for a search there.

The disclosure came as organized labor continued its legal effort to force the state to provide more access to the Capitol.

Law enforcement authorities discovered dozens of rounds of live ammunition outside the Capitol building in Madison, Wisconsin this morning:

Dane County deputies found 11 rounds near the State street entrance Thursday morning, said UW-Madison Police Chief Susan Riseling. Twenty-nine rounds were found near the King Street entrance, and one round was found near the North Hamilton Street entrance, Riseling said.

Well, of course. Wasn’t there a group of tea-partiers there a week or so ago? Who else would be bringing firearms to a political protest? Surely not the gentle folks of SEIU or any of the other leftist groups who populated the grounds throughout the last two weeks. Progressives, as we all know, abhor guns and violence.
