The rock tosser of Atwood Street may have alarmed people by shooting a rock into The Victory coffee shop. But that’s where the negatives both begin and end. When I came by today the place was packed with people, recall petition circulators were constantly busy, and the food case was bare – - we purchased all of Patrick’s provisions. The tip jar overfloweth and a neighbor even stopped in with flowers.
I spoke with a recall signer who said her husband had worked a petition table at Edgewood. According to her yesterday a man came up to their table and tore through a stack of signatures destroying
450 of them 1 page of signatures. A total of 450 were collected in all that day [that correction is made per a comment submitted on this blog---a forthcoming police report may reveal more details]. The volunteers will alert the signers who will redo them.
That petition destroyer committed a Class I felony. I’m not sure what the rock launcher committed, but the cops are on it. They took the original text that was literally taped to the rock but Patrick recorded the text for posterity. You’ll see it in the last photo below.
As long as I have you here, I will run The Victory’s street address and web site by you. As the now classic Wisconsin protest sign says, “Screw Us and We Multiply”. I think that logic works for coffee houses too.
