Monday through Thursday

I think I'm an idealist. The police have a tough job. They have their boss on one side, who is more often than not a shill of corporations and on the other side the people they are to serve and protect.

This is a hard line to straddle, because dealing with both is their job.

This reminds me of my old retail job before it went to hell. It was a retail job, but I had the last boss in the world who may have been the 1% but who ran his business like he understood how things worked on Main Street. Len Roberts was the CEO of RadioShack and when he was, stock prices were about $60-$80 a share, and employees at the bottom were paid reasonably well. Not great, but you could seriously live a comfortable life being single and working there. In the right store, you could comfortably even raise a family. He understood that there are two jobs in retail, "you either serve the customer or you serve the server."

In government, it's more complicated than that, however, in someways that principal exists. Because there are so many services a government must do, and they need that philosophy. The police serve and protect. They serve the people of their municipality. However, the Governor and the legislators must also realize that they too serve the people and serve the server.

Now, this is an example of how the police, and in this case, the Sheriff's Department serve the people. And does so quite beautifully. This is no seceret either.

I want to say thank you to the officers of Madison who has stood up to Scott Walker's Gestapo. I want to thank Sheriff Mahoney for all your hard work. I want to express my solidarity with the officers at the Capitol who do their jobs to the best of their abliity even if they have to put up with assinine orders from Chief Erwin. We do respect you. We are for your union, and we support your fight. We do support you, but like Len Roberts understood, you are the face of the Walker administration to many people, and you know that we understand that you're just doing your job. Thank you for letting us do ours.

We shall overcome!

Now, I'm going to start asking you this every episode in this story: please go to the paypal link and make a payment to help aid the protesters in paying legal fees or if you would rather send a check, please message Sue Trace and she will help you. They do have attorneys who are representing them for low or no cost. But at $36 per jury fee, the costs are mounting. These people are singled out by the Scott Walker administration and are trying be silenced instead of being allowed to express their Constitutionally protected rights.
