Fourteen Protesters Arrested at Michigan Capitol Building

Protesters have now hit the Michigan capitol building in uproar over Gov. Rick Snyder's budget and bills in the legislature which resulted in the arrest of 14 people. Some of those arrested were from the group BAMN - By Any Means Necessary- whose full name is the Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration, and Immigrant Rights and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary.

Via Detroit News:

All 14 arrested will be charged with misdemeanor trespassing, according to State Police Capt. Gary Nix. One person additionally faces felony charges for allegedly breaking into the Capitol through a bathroom window and allegedly assaulting a police officer. A few of the protesters inside the Capitol after it closed scuffled with police when they charged a door to try to let in more protesters.
Snyder's plan calls for a $1.8 billion business tax cut, cuts to spending on education and local government, as well as taxes for pensioners. Can we just sit back and ponder what these media reports would actually look like if all these events involved the Tea Party?
