Videos: Cops and Firemen Siding with Wisconsin Protesters?

It looks like Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker might have an additional issue to deal with and it has to do with the fact that Police and Fire employees are made up of public union employees as well and many of them are actually siding with the protesters inside the Wisconsin Capital Building. This is what we call a conflict of interest and it's another consequence of unionizing the public sector. This is insubordination on the part of these police and fire departments, especially if they're protesting while in uniform.

Green Bay Press Gazette via The Blaze:
MADISON — Hundreds of off-duty police officers and deputies joined protests today against Gov. Scott Walker's budget repair bill that would strip most collective bargaining powers from about 170,000 public employees.

Police, state troopers and firefighters are exempt from Walker's proposal, but even as some marched on the downtown Capitol Square, hundreds of other officers from around the state provided security.

Sheboygan County Sheriff's Cpl. Matt Spence and Deputy Todd Traas stood guard on the Capitol's northwest side directing pedestrians toward entrances to the building.

"We left at 3 a.m. on Thursday and have been (in Madison) ever since," Traas said. Five Sheboygan County deputies were on duty Saturday.

They came equipped with riot gear, including helmets and batons, they said, but didn't expect trouble.

"It's been great," Spence said.
This is disgraceful and Walker needs to take a page out of Ronald Reagan's handbook relative to the Air Traffic Controllers. Granted, these public officials are not striking but they are certainly being insubordinate and are fanning the flames of lawlessness.

Here is video of a Police Officer with a bullhorn inside the Capital Building, who is clearly identifying himself as an officer of the law.

Here is video of Firemen doing the same.
