Indiana Deputy Attorney General Says “Uses Live Ammunition” On Wisconsin Protestors

Posted by | February 23, 2011 12:03 | Filed under: Top Stories

Indiana Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Cox had this response to a Mother Jones tweet saying that riot police could be used to clear protestors from the Wisconsin capitol (via Think Progress).

Cox remained steadfast in his position that the protestors should be killed when confronted on Twitter by Mother Jones’ Adam Weinstein, writing that “against thugs physically threatening legally-elected state legislators & governor? You’re damn right I advocate deadly force.” (There have been no reports that the protestors have physically threatened any elected officials).

The Indiana Attorney General’s office says his statements are “inflammatory” and “there will be an immediate review.”
