Troopers Use Nightsticks on Right to Work Protesters

By  | 

Right to work protesters toppled a tent on the capitol lawn that had been erected by supporters of the legislation. The tent straps were loosened and then toppled even though there were people inside.

A loud and angry confrontation between protesters and supporters followed. Within minutes, state troopers showed up to push the crowd back. When troopers met resistance, they began using their nightsticks.

The entire event was caught on camera by News 10 Chief Photographer Steve Coon.
