Wirch Statement on Destruction and Violence at State Capitol

Kenosha – State Senator Bob Wirch (D-Somers) issued the following statement on destruction at the State Capitol and the assault on State Sen. Tim Carpenter:

"I fully support people’s First Amendment rights and their ability to peacefully protest.  What we saw last night was not peaceful.  When you cross over into destruction and violence, you have crossed a line.  Assault against anyone is not okay, but in this case, it is personal, as Sen. Tim Carpenter is my dear friend and a staunch advocate for racial justice and equality.  Last night’s actions do nothing to advance those causes."
