Earlier this year I was contacted by a detective regarding a video that had appeared on YouTube. I was not involved, but definitely curious about who or what the detective was after.
Wisconsin is a single party consent state when it comes to recording. I decided to call back the detective seeing as I had nothing to lose. It became clear during the course of our conversation that he had little to go on and was looking for any information.

For two days this week I joined the throngs of protesters in support of unions’ rights to collective bargaining, which Gov. Scott Walker (R) plans to do away with entirely. After just one month in office Gov. Walker has given corporate interests budget deals that have created a $137 million dollar deficit. This deficit of Walker’s making is being used as leverage against the rights of state employees. Wisconsin has historically been on the forefront of workers’ rights in the United States. To wipe away years of progress with the stroke of a pen is unacceptable. We must press Gov. Walker for a compromise. The protests have been peaceful and I am proud to be exercising my rights as an American citizen.
