Indiana Deputy Attorney General Suggests Killing Wisconsin Protesters With ‘Live Ammunition’

by Ken Layne

Yeah, let's murder government workers at a protest!Do you get the feeling America is in actual meltdown, for real this time, and that the outcome is as hazy as some night-time web video streaming on Al Jazeera from Libya or Bahrain or wherever? Pictured above is a Twitter post by Indiana Deputy Attorney General Jeff Cox, who responded to a Mother Jones post about the Wisconsin protests with the charming words, “Use Live Ammunition.” You know, murder government employees for having a labor protest. Murder them! Fucking traitors, right?

The good news is that Jeff Cox, this deputy AG in Indiana, was just fired from his state government job. Good luck in the private sector! Maybe the Koch Bros. need a new fluffer or something, for five-fifty an hour, part time/no benefits/graveyard shift. Maybe that would be fun!

Strange times, because we are regularly consulting Mother Jones this week for some hawt newz. We have nothing against MJ, and in fact used to write for it, about a decade ago. But it hasn’t been essential reading for a while now … until now. It has been all over the Wisconsin protests, all over the Actual Causes of this fake “government fiscal crisis” — billionaires, multi-millionaires and huge corporations pay almost no income tax, while you will have your meager assets seized and your shitty Denny’s paycheck garnished (with a sprig of parsley) if you don’t pay your taxes. And now it got this “Cox-Sucker” fired from his welfare queen gov’t job, because he epitomizes the violent, idiotic bullshit spouting from these hired goons employed to harass people and protect billionaires. That’s true! Totally true.

Anyway, Mother Jones:

On Saturday night, when Mother Jones staffers tweeted a report that riot police might soon sweep demonstrators out of the Wisconsin capitol building—something that didn’t end up happening—one Twitter user sent out a chilling public response: “Use live ammunition.”

…. Only later did we realize that JCCentCom was a deputy attorney general for the state of Indiana.

The guy has apparently been blogging this kind of caveman swill for 10 years, and who noticed, right, because come on, Indiana? But his vile, impotent fantasies of killing his fellow Americans and fellow state-government employees, because they have a legal right to protest work compensation and conditions, finally attracted the exact kind of attention necessary to kick this slob out the door. Enjoy free enterprise, ya jerkwad. Anybody dumb enough to hire you will change their mind once they run a quick Google search. [Mother Jones]

Rarian Rakista February 23, 2011 at 5:57 pm

He does not have to worry about government sponsored death panels anymore, he lost his medical insurance through the government, which means as a 40 something he can look forward to 1000 dollar a month premiums and corporate death panels, just like Ayn Rand intended.

lulzmonger February 24, 2011 at 3:18 am

"Death Panels BAD, Death Squads GOOD" … you know it's a fact because it's straight from the Gospel of Reagan (Letters To The Dipshittians, Chapter 4, Verses 7 & 8).

Do you think Pinochet outfitted his death squads with Dodge minivans?

Which makes one wonder why he's wearing Charger crap here: http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2011/02/indian

Isn't not liking Peyton a hanging offense in IN? And, who likes the Chargers since the Dan Fouts era has been over?

metamarcisf February 23, 2011 at 5:09 pm

Not only that. The Colts have lost five of their last seven to the Chargers.

BerkeleyBear February 23, 2011 at 5:50 pm

It was the AFC playoff game a couple of years ago when the Colts met the Chargers. Looks like the old dome, so it may have been before the Colts made the Super Bowl for the first time in the Indy era. All kinds of closet SD fans came out in that one.

Indy is weird in that because the Colts only got here in 85, lots of people don't have the sort of natural affinity you'd expect. Plus, there was a group of douchebags who kept bitching when Manning would have huge years but didn't make/win the SB every year. Fits with this asshat's overall profile that he prefers the uber douchy Phillip Rivers/Chargers over the classy Manning & Co.

Dashboard_Jesus February 23, 2011 at 10:16 pm

hey I grew up in Indy and was a Bears fan as a kid, Dad would take us to summer camp up at St. Joe's college in northern IN and you could actually meet the players on the field after practice- Gail Sayers, Dick Butkus, even Brian Piccolo…good times! I have never been a fan of Colts though cuz their owner was a huge douchebag/drunk and his son's a drug addict, personally I hop the players go on strike and Indy looses the SB, serve 'em right for takin' my tax dollars to pay for hideous stadium, damn socialists

I'm guessing he had one of those "history teachers" hired to coach athletics, who spend their class time diagramming plays while the students "read the chapter and answer the questions at the end". The textbook itself was one of those written-by-committee soporifics guaranteed not to offend anyone in Texas or Indiana. And Cox still got a C.

Vinnie Lou will stay discreetly far enough behind that when I pass a guy with a gigantic truck (that, of course, cost more than the trailer he's living in) or a BMW, should I be at Utica Square in Tulsa, I'll simply pass by and say, casually, "Just how little is your dick?" and when the guy starts to get testy, up step Vinnie and Lou.

There was US Prosecutor Archibald Cox, the special investigator for Watergate who was fired by Nixon for actually doing his job instead of aiding in the coverup; he was a good one; and of course our former Wonkette overlord. But I don't know of any other good Cox.

As much as I utterly despise the 21st century retard party line that is "Touretter", its role in mainlining to the masses the career-ending subconscious convulsions of self-important assholes who would have otherwise remained free to carry on their consequence-free reign of public sector terror is not without some small, satisfying schaden of freude.

JCPenney's goober-based Google bomb came immediately to mind when I made that comment, though I'll admit that I was unaware of the following facts prior to reading the piece in the NYT:

- JCPenney sells raped and murdered girls for $19.90.

- JCPenney has santorum that's now more than half off.

- JCPenney is the leading retailer of lemon party supplies.

- JCPenney outsources complaints to a call center in Goatse.

- JCPenney recently launched a promising new ad campaign.

My dream in life is to rule the world, watch the Cleveland Browns win the Super Bowl, have a San Diego Chargers jacket with big lightning bolts on the shoulders and take Emmanuelle Vaugier out to dinner at a 5-star restaurant.

I'd hazard a guess that the dream with the highest prospects for success is the first one. Well, I suppose he could buy that jacket, but remember, he's unemployed now.

My mom finally asked me to stop bringing them, as he has a pretty volatile temper and after perusing them he would be so outraged and pissed off that he was impossible to live with. Now I just take him my old New Yorkers.

For some reason, pictures of this guy trigger memories of that doofus in Michigan who basically stalked the gay president of the U of M's student body, spewed crap about the kid all over a blog, and when it became public he got fired. He had something on his blog as well about how much he loved the ladies. Maybe he and this guy from Indiana can get together and commiserate over some buttsecks.

EDIT: Now that I've read through this thread I see others actually remembered the Michigan doofus's name, which is a relief because I did not want to spend time Googling him.

Meanwhile, in London:

"Up to 300 anti-cuts protesters occupied Lambeth town hall in south London today (Wednesday) – the day councillors were set to vote through a disastrous cuts budget.
The protesters stormed the council meeting just after 7pm, chanting "No ifs, no buts, no public sector cuts" and "That's not what democracy looks like – this is what democracy looks like."
The campaigners, including many council workers, then held a “people's council” in the chamber in Brixton. They took over the meeting, elected their own chair and discussed opposition to the cuts.
One worker said, "This is a small echo of what's happening around the world. Power to the people!"
Many protesters talked about how the occupation of the town hall in Wisconsin, USA, has inspired their action."
If we all spat together, we'd drown the bastards.

Negropolis February 24, 2011 at 7:12 am

Ah, the smell of democracy in the morning…

BTW, that wasn't just a town hall that was occupied, you Brits, but a state house of a state of about 5.7 million people.
