I’ve gotten messages but don’t see any news items yet (you can apparently find confirmation on Twitter, @AndrewKroll, @ddayen, and PRNewswatch for instance) that the police in Wisconsin have announced they will begin arrests to clear the capitol building. It’s to start at 4:00 PM Central, so it is now in process.
Hundreds have said they are willing to be arrested. Human chains were formed around the capitol.
Wonder what happens when they run out of local jail space. Will they just haul protestors to the police station, arraign them, and release them? The first wave will presumably be incarcerated, but how far can they go with this, given the numbers involved?
Update 5:40 PM Live feed, hat tip a kind anon.
Update 6:50 PM: Rather curious absence of MSM coverage, apparently only a couple of minutes on CNN.
