Where to begin? Let's start with Mr. Willoughby. Not knowing the details of his detention, I suspect that he was the victim of police over zealousness as has been the case too often in this country. Civil rights demonstrators in the south in the 50's and 60's were hit with fire hoses and beaten. Viet Name War protesters were similarly harassed. It's an old story, though not a good one. Frankly, I don't care what Mr. Willoughby was protesting, it behooves civil authorities to protect those who choose to dissent publicly. Some such demonstrations are designed to get participants arrested as a further emphasis of their cause.
Finally, Scott Walker is no hero, nor is he a villain. He is a politician, like his opponent. There is only one truth in politics: re-election. Today it takes an enormous ego to willingly subject oneself to the rigors of the political gauntlet candidates must run to gain access to the halls of power.
