Tool of the Week: Banana Republic Madison

MADISON — In the leftist enclave that is Madison you can beat the living hell out of a gay state senator while rioting at the Capitol and not face a single day in jail or any fines.

Sickening? Yes.

Surprising? Not at all.

This is, of course the banana republic of Madison, where “accountability” and “consequences” are frowned on.

Samantha Hamer, 27, of Madison is one of two “protesters” charged in the brutal attack on state Sen. Tim Carpenter (D-Milwaukee), who’s only “crime” was taking pictures of Black Lives Matter rioters as they tore down iconic Capitol Square statues. The senator, a BLM advocate, was beaten so badly he required surgery.

“I took this pic- it got me assaulted & beat up. Punched/kicked in the head, neck, ribs. Maybe concussion, socked in left eye is little blurry, sore neck & ribs. 8-10 people attacked me. Innocent people are going to get killed. Capitol locked- stuck in office.Stop violence nowPlz!” Carpenter tweeted in the early hours of June 24, 2020.

As Carpenter noted, Gov. Tony Evers locked down the Capitol and its police. Unchecked, rioters tore down and destroyed the two legendary statues that have long guarded the State Capitol, smashed and vandalized the statehouse and firebombed Madison’s City-County Building — putting scores of lives in peril.

Hamer originally was charged with a felony, substantial battery as party to a crime. That charge was dismissed.

Hamer had been set to go to trial on Oct. 18, the Wisconsin State Journal reported.

Her co-defendant, Kerida O’Reilly, 34, of Madison, declined the plea agreement offered by Dane County Assistant District Attorney Paul Humphrey, That offer would have had O’Reilly plead guilty to misdemeanor battery and be placed in the first offenders’ program, the newspaper reported. The charge would be dropped once O’Reilly completes the program.

“Restorative justice” plea-bargaining and deferments. That’s what accounts for justice in the banana republic of Madison. No wonder the criminals are so emboldened and law-abiding citizens are fleeing. The liberals in control of law and order have squeezed real justice out of the judicial system.

They are tools to “progressive justice,” which is unjust to its growing number of victims.

  • Mr. Kiddle;
    Would like to read / hear some really significant editorializing on the removal of Tony Evers via recall. I realize the election is not far off but leaving office under such conditions leaves his Wisconsin pension as governor intact. If he is recalled all benefits are lost. This joke of a governor should not be rewarded for what he has both done to and failed to do for our state. He needs to be removed…..PERIOD !!!
