Allan D. Luke: Embarrassing ‘Mondays’

Embarrassing ‘Mondays’

About a year ago, I was embarrassed for our country with all of the extreme protests going on in Wisconsin, full of outsiders and special interests. Now as each Monday passes, I’m becoming more and more embarrassed for the people protesting in Raleigh.

I read a few weeks ago that the arrests were already costing local and state governments tens of thousands of dollars. Way to go. Keep it up!

Go ahead and protest – that is a right every American citizen has. But when they are costing the taxpayers’ money by needlessly getting arrested, it doesn’t make sense and is embarrassing to our state.
