WI CAPITOL SEES PROTESTERS

WI CAPITOL SEES PROTESTERS

Wisconsin’s Capitol is now on the list of places where protesters have torn down statues.

An angry crowd ripped down two statues last night, the Forward Statue and a statue of Hans Christian Heg who was a Union war hero and an abolitionist.

The crowd is also being accused of attacking a state lawmaker who took a picture of the destruction. State Senator Tim Carpenter said on Twitter that the protesters punched him, then kicked him while on the ground. He was taken away by ambulance.
