    Deputy Attorney General for Indiana tweets that live ammunition should be used against Wisconsin protesters. He referred to them as "thugs," "political enemies" and declared "you're damned right I advocate deadly force."

    I'm on the phone, so I don't know how to insert a hyperlink to this story.

    The guy's fired.

    http://motherjones.com/politics/2011/02/indiana-official-jeff-cox-live-ammunition-against-wisconsin-protesters Today the Indiana Attorney General’s Office announced that Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Cox is no longer employed by this agency.

    The Indiana Attorney General’s Office conducted a thorough and expeditious review after “Mother Jones” magazine today published an article attributing private Twitter postings and private blog postings to Cox.

    Civility and courtesy toward all members of the public are very important to the Indiana Attorney General’s Office. We respect individuals’ First Amendment right to express their personal views on private online forums, but as public servants we are held by the public to a higher standard, and we should strive for civility.

    I suppose that will depend on the response of protestors. If they themselves use force, it will not be pretty.

    We had a group who descended on Forsyth County Georgia some 20 years with Communist Senator Wyche Fowler in the lead. The Georgia National Guard was deployed with full tactical support and live ammo. They qwelled a riot. Wyche lost his next election.

    Ok everyone, I'm sorry to say that conservativejock is actually the avatar of Colonel Qaddafi. Fortunately, he's likely to be strung up in a few days by the Libyans.

    If I didn't already have my mind made up about what kind of man you are, this latest post of yours would leave me with no doubt.

    It was more than just a "group," but rather a demonstration to bring some racial harmony in a county that was deeply rooted with hostility towards blacks.
