JS Online: Damage blamed on frustration
One day after 21 people were arrested during a demonstration that vandalized a U.S. Army recruiting office on Milwaukee's east side, Wisconsin peace activist groups on Tuesday said some protesters might increasingly turn to destruction as their frustrations mount.Isn't this sorta what a two-year-old does?
Regarding a police report that human excrement was smeared on the recruiting center, Johnson said he wasn't aware of such vandalism.Okay. Smearing $h*t on a recruiting center is a perfectly rational way of showing your disagreement with government action. I do it all the time-- especially during tax season.
Peace Action Wisconsin does not condone violence, said the group's project organizer Julie Enslow, but some anti-war protesters might feel the need to be violent to get their point across. "We do not use those tactics ourselves, but the movement is very broad, and as this war continues, the anti-war movement is going to take many forms - not all of which everyone feels comfortable with," Enslow said.Consider yourself warned.
