At the scene Thursday night, Flynn told reporters that officers wouldn't help protesters fulfill their "martyrdom fantasies" and they could stay "and freeze their butts off."
The bridge "cleared itself," as protesters left about 40 minutes after his announcement that there would be no mass arrest, Flynn recalled Friday.
Flea party temper tantrum getting ignored? Well..... yeah, check. Flea Party walking off with pouty face firmly in place? CHECK! Yeah, you go ahead and "occupy" a bridge in Wisconsin in mid-November there, genius. Tell me how that works out for you, after you get out of the hospital for your frostbite and hypothermia.
On their butts.
Hat tip to the Headmistress.
