Multiple reports are coming through facebook that today the Capitol Police announced that the people singing in the rotunda from noon to 1 P.M. were “Unlawfully Assembled” and “any participants or spectators are subject to arrest”.

But then they didn’t arrest anybody.

unlawful event

A federal judge recently issued a preliminary injunction that ordered Scott Walker’s administration to stop “(1) distinguishing based on the content of the speech between “rallies” and other events for permitting purposes inside the Capitol”
and to stop
“(2) enforcing the permit requirement for gatherings expected to draw 20 or fewer persons inside the Capitol rotunda itself.”

There were reportedly more than 20 people in the rotunda.

So what next?
Mass arrests daily? Or only on Mondays as is the practice with North Carolina’s “Moral Mondays”?
