GTac’s Militia Allowed to Operate Outside the Law in Wisconsin

 

Tom Parrella, President of Bulletproof Securities

August 12, 2013  by Barbara With

 

According to an article in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Governor Scott Walker’s office was in touch with the head of Bulletproof Securities before they entered the state and committed a felony by not securing proper licensing to carry machine guns in the Penokee Hills.


Several complaints were filed against BPS with the State Department of Safety and Professional Services and the Iron County District Attorney. However, those were ignored when the department finally granted Bulletproof their permits in mid-August. Iron County District Attorney Martin Lipske said on Friday that he was negotiating a deal with GTac to not prosecute them or BPS if they agree to patrol the area without guns.

 

“I’m going beyond simply not filing them,” said Lipske. “I want some more concessions so that hopefully we don’t have to have high-intensity security people like Bulletproof have or acting in a high intensive manner like being armed. If we can get some sort of agreement like that, I feel that then justice will be served.”

 

Bulletproof claimed that needed to break the law and not obtain legal license to do business in the State because of the “threat” caused by a protest that took place at the mining company’s core drilling site on June 11.

Pete Russo Speaks Out - he is describing in some cases literal threats from GTAC mining company #NoPenokeeMine #IdleNoMore

Penokee MineInfo 

July 10, 2013 - At a press conference in Mellen, WI ahead of a joint committee of Anderson, Morse and Ashland and Iron County Mining Impact Committees, Ashland County Chairman Pete Russo discusses his history with Gogebic Taconite, the company that would obliterate the Penokee Hills for low-grade taconite.

 

This is the Chairman of the Ashland County Board of Supervisors, the board that voted 18-1 to implement an Metallic Mining Ordinance to protect the taxpayers of Ashland County and regulate mining the same way they regulate any other activities from dog licenses to building permits.

When he begins to cry, note that he is describing in some cases literal threats from GTAC mining company -- and how still nobody even knows who this company is, that wrote the Mining Bill for GOP legislators to pass.

Eau Claire (WQOW) - The debate about a proposed iron ore mine in northern Wisconsin always seems to come back to two things:  the impact on the economy vs. the environment.  As WQOW News 18 examines Gogebic Taconite's plans, we're hearing what supporters and opponents say they stand to gain or lose depending on the fate of that mine.

(This is the first story in a WQOW News 18 series called, "Mine of Information.")

Sarah LittleRedfeather Kalmanson's insight:

Frank Koehn fights to protect the natural waters and habitat of this region.

"It's water.  It all comes back to water.  We need that water to sustain life and that's what's at risk here is our water," says Koehn. The DNR says mines can use water at more than 70 gallons per minute.
