After a string of over 700 consecutive nonviolent Solidarity Sing Alongs in the Capitol rotunda, the Capitol Police got rough. On August 26, 2013, officers tackled observer Damon Terrell to the ground and carried him out of the rotunda bodily like a rail. At the same time, officers dragged Damon’s brother, C.J. Terrell, up from a seated position and removed him from the Capitol. The Capitol Police delivered both brothers to the Dane County Jail, charging C.J. with resisting arrest.
