    Charges dropped against Madison 5

    http://www.jsonline.com/blogs/news/121330023.html

    Prosecutors have dismissed disorderly conduct charges issued against five gun rights activists who openly wore guns at a Madison Culver's restaurant last fall.

    "The only disturbance created on that Saturday evening was by a mass of uniformed Madison police officers and squads arriving to investigate law-abiding citizens having dinner," said Christopher Van Wagner, a defense attorney hired by Wisconsin Carry, Inc. to defend the men.

    According to Nik Clark, president of the group, the Madison City Attorney's office on Thursday informed Wagner and Wisconsin Carry of its decision to dismiss the citations against all five men.

    The same group has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit over the incident.

    Still think we need a publicity shoot with the MAD5 and WCI officers for WCI.

    This calls for a banana and a Primer (the monkey's official OCDO name).
