MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Police have made still more arrests in the Wisconsin Capitol rotunda.
Protesters have been gathering in the rotunda during the noon hour almost every weekday for more than two years to sing against Republican Gov. Scott Walker. Police began arresting them on July 24 after a federal judge ruled officers can require large groups to get a permit to gather in the building. The protesters have refused to apply for any permits. Police have issued them more than 190 tickets so far.
The singers sang on the Capitol lawn on Friday, as is their tradition on that day of the week. But with about 20 minutes left in the noon hour several dozen moved into the rotunda. Police arrested three people before the hour ended.
