Shades of Over There

As we watch the protests sweep across the Arab world, one of the sure signs that the current regime is in trouble is when the military and security apparatus starts to turn on the dictator. We saw glimpses of this phenomenon in Tunisia and Egypt. In the past few days, there have been reports of soldiers in Libya either seeking asylum in Malta or joining up with the anti-regime protesters themselves.

Well folks, it doesn't just happen over there. In a report Friday night from The Rainforest Action Network, approximately 100 members of the police joined the sit-in at the Wisconsin State Capitol.
“Police have just announced to the crowds inside the occupied State Capitol of Wisconsin: ‘We have been ordered by the legislature to kick you all out at 4:00 today. But we know what’s right from wrong. We will not be kicking anyone out, in fact, we will be sleeping here with you!'”
