Mr. Schuette, if a particular AG was to support rule-of-law, and wish to defend the 'RIGHTS' of Michigan citizens, perhaps this story might tickle that AG's fancy?
If this is a true and factual account, (there is no reason to suspect it is not) then there had best be some heads mounted on the Attorney General's trophy room wall before long. Scotty Boman, former US Senate candidate and current candidate for Detroit City Clerk underwent an assault on his person July 30, and his rights were violated by those who pledge to serve. According to the Michigan Libertarian website:
Campaigning has become dangerous for Detroit City Clerk candidate Scotty Boman. According to Boman, a member of the WCCCD campus police attempted to intimidate him while he was taking pictures of his opponent's (Janice Winfrey) signage at the early voting location at the Northwest Campus of WCCCD on Tuesday July 30th. After he moved to where volunteers for other candidates were handing out literature, he was assaulted by the officer, then thrown to the ground by additional officers as he attempted to hand campaign literature to a passers-by. Boman said he was then held prisoner until a campaign forum, that the officers knew he was scheduled to attend, was nearly over.Ultimately the charge Boman faced was trespassing.
After he was detained in a closet by police.
Trespassing? On publicly owned property?
Hello Bill? ACLU? Is this thing on?

What a disgusting abuse of power by a Peter Principle agency bureaucrat. Thank God that Sens. Hune and Booher have taken the initiative to intervene on this outrageous dictatorial assault on private property rights.
Seriously Gov. Snyder, you can't even manage the simpleton you appointed to head the DNR, and you still want to stick us taxpayers with your bureaucrat managed boondoggle bridge? No thanks. Not with your brand of gross negligence.

The DNR continues to act on its self proclaimed authority and Governor Snyder sits silent while family farming businesses are destroyed in Michigan.
This is getting as ugly as predicted. One farmer writes:
"I was served a search warrant yesterday at 7: 45am.
Though I can hardly understand where cute pigs are relevant, it doesn't sit well when the natural order of things can so easily be tossed aside without due process so easily.
Warrants served, without a day in court and exterminations of livestock ordered when there is no threat to ANYONE. Strong walls, fences, containment, etc. None of it matters to the goose stepping DNR masters of Michigan. Consider this a vision of what is to come along with the [not so] slowly developing agenda 21 takings.
Welcome to the new environmental police state.
