Video: Joe Miller’s Thuggish Security Guards on Camera

Wow. The Anchorage Daily News has posted a video of the incident in which reporter Tony Hopfinger was handcuffed and detained by Tea Party candidate Joe Miller’s security guards, showing some astonishingly thuggish behavior as other reporters tried to interview Hopfinger.

This is seriously bad craziness. Tea Party candidates aren’t just running away from reporters now — they’re setting thugs on them.

Bunch of punks. I hope Miller gets humiliated at the polls due to this.

Murkowski is the legit Republican. Miller is the spawn of the Tea Party who wants government to come to a complete halt despite his past reliance on Medicaid.

Don’t trust the evil Federal government, but trust the private security guards who obviously were trying to strong arm reporters.

Questions:
1. Were Joe Miller’s body guards armed?
2. Are they all permitted to carry concealed weapons?
3. If not, are there laws in Alaska about carrying concealed weapons onto school property?

6 Shiplord Kirel  Mon, Oct 18, 2010 3:33:02pm

These are probably informal Tea Party goons rather than licensed security personnel, though I could be wrong. I don’t know the Alaska laws, but if they were licensed in Texas, they would have lost those licenses by now.

Campaigns are pubilc events, and when something is billed as a “town hall meeting” and public facilities are used, it cannot after the fact be called a ‘private event’…if Miller wanted to have a private event, he could have rented a meeting room at the Holiday Inn Express (free bagels!).

I do think that Obama’s inept approach to these issues has made the American public more fearful than it was under Bush, and as a result, more anti-Muslim. The polls certainly demonstrate this shift, and it’s hard for me to see what else would account for it. When people trusted Bush to keep them safe, they weren’t scared. They don’t trust Obama to keep them safe, so they’re more scared. As the President himself suggests, when people are scared, they tend to lash out… .

Bad things to do, if you are running for office:

1. Hire security guards who look like skinheads.

2. Rent a building that is normally public for a private event. This confuses the public. If it had been held at a private home, nobody would have thought it odd to deny entrance to any uninvited person. They might have been within their legal rights, but it looks funny.

Its all about the intent of the event.

A church is only open to certain people, a cub scout meeting is only open to the scout and their family…

This event on the other hand was an event open to the public.

So the public has a write to be there you can’t trespass at a public event if you’re a member of the public.

She’ll caucus with the Republicans. She hasn’t changed her party affiliation, and she knows she’ll maintain her seniority and committee seats if she does…and 24 hours after the election, Mitch McConnell will be begging her for party unity so hard his jowels will get stuck in her butt-cheeks.

if I rented a public room (school or library) after hours for a invitation only “public” (not just jewelers)jewelry event it would be private and trespassers would certainly be barred as security risks. Without any legal worries at all.

Perhaps confusing the law and right and wrong is the issue here.
The above incident aside, I do not see why not. I’d like to see the link that shows a law declaring a a public room as utterly public despite being rented by a private party.

if I rented a public room (school or library) after hours for a invitation only “public” (not just jewelers)jewelry event it would be private and trespassers would certainly be barred as security risks. Without any legal worries at all.

It was an open to the public event, as far as I know…so the “private” argument is invalid. Regardless of whether or not you CAN rent a public space and make it private, they DIDN’T.

Actually, I’d be interested in knowing if the SCHOOL knew it was supposed to be a “private event”. I’ve worked in a few places - schools and libraries - where rooms and areas could be lined up, but they’ve all got strings that are almost always “must be public” since the facility is a taxpayer funded facility.

Why not? What makes a Public school public after hours? I have rented a “public” room for private purposes. And had security ready top prevent or remove trespassers. My event was a wedding reception. We could have barred anyone but a peace officer or fireman.

Lots of public schools rent out space “after hours”. I don’t know about the “security” thing, though…

She’ll caucus with the Republicans. She hasn’t changed her party affiliation, and she knows she’ll maintain her seniority and committee seats if she does…and 24 hours after the election, Mitch McConnell will be begging her for party unity so hard his jowels will get stuck in her butt-cheeks.


Republicans don’t assign committee chairs by seniority. Democrats do (the CBC insisted on that years ago, and they’re not going to budge now), which is why they’re stuck with Lieberman.

Republican committee chairs are mostly on the basis of fundraising for the NRSC and NRCC, with an extra oomph that the party leadership can use it for a PartyUnity! cudgel. Remember when Specter’s gavel at judiciary was threatened because right after the ‘04 election he’d said something insufficiently conservative about abortion and Bush’s judicial nominees?

And then you can see, on camera, the security guards pushing the other reporters away. They touch their cameras, and they move towards them, forcing them down the hallway.

Whether or not they were legally allowed to do it depends on the terms of the rental agreement with the school, and the conditions on which they made the town hall a ‘public’ event.

Correct,, but otice (and listen) he didn’t allow him to leave either,, the cop also took a radio call from someone who was on their way, “stuck in traffic”

A superior perhaps, who would then asses what to do with Hopfinger

He is repeating what the goons told him. It was a “town hall” meeting…those aren’t generally considered ‘private’ functions, though I did concede on this point already.

Interesting note from HERE
“He noted that the school itself required him to bring security personnel to the event, and said that “at the beginning of the event, this same individual, he’s a blogger, he actually followed me into the restroom. This is not some sort of ‘Ah he’s kind of getting into your personal space’ thing. This is just absolutely crossing the line.”“

Either way, poorly handled by the campaign workers that should have tried to calm things down.

Just because you rented it out doesn’t make it a private place.

I think it might, but I don’t know all the details. As others have related from experience here, they have either organized or attended events that are exclusive, closed to the public (i.e.: private), on rented public grounds.

re: #147 sattv4u2

1:15 in

The police officer tells the reporter that the school was rented out

Doesn’t matter what the cop said if the function was open to the public, IMO…if if was open to the public, Miller and his jackbooted thugs can’t just say it’s private with no notice in order to justify squelching people they don’t like.

As I said downstairs a couple of threads ago, in Tennessee, a private security guard only has the power of arrest if they either witness or have overwhelming evidence that a felony has occurred or is occurring, in which case they can hold someone for the cops…otherwise they have no more police powers than a “civilian”. If Alaska’s laws are similar to ours here in TN, the Drop Zone fucks might have bought themselves charges and/or a suit for false arrest, no matter if the function was private or public, because what Hopfinger did was what might be considered simple assault or battery (a misdemeanor in most places) when he pushed whoever it was that he pushed, at worst.

re: #179 Slumbering Behemoth

Fulton said that as a security guard he is familiar with state law, and he believes he has the legal authority to police “private events” no matter where might take place. He refused to answer how exactly a member of the public attending Miller’s town hall meeting at a public school was supposed to know it was a private event, but said the Joe Miller sign outside was the giveaway.

The meeting was open to the public. There were no names taken at the door. Reporters were not asked to apply for credentials.

The event really does not sound like it was a private event.

As for the bathroom part, Hopfinger’s version of it is that he exchanged pleasantries with Miller while they were in the bathroom. I really don’t get how following someone into the bathroom would be so amazingly over the line, either.

As for the security guard’s saying they were required to be hired:

“He was contractually required to have us there,” Fulton said. “In their contract with the school district, they’re required to have security.”

But spokespeople for Murkowski and Democrat Scott McAdams each told RealClearPolitics that they had held several events at Anchorage public schools and have never had to provide their own security guards.

“Senator Murkowski last year during the health care debate held town halls where there were hundreds of people there at public schools in the Anchorage school district, and she was never required to have security, nor did we hire security,” Murkowski spokesperson Steve Wackowski said. “They just had to have a security plan.”

Should be easy to check up on.

Joe Miller tells CNN he was disciplined for misuse of borough computers, was “during my lunch hour.” [Link: bit.ly…]

Well, no, not really. The event is very clearly not private, if no names are taken at the door. It’s open to the public. It’s public.

That doesn’t mean that the people running the event have no right to ask people to leave, of course— a private event mainly means you can restrain people from entering in the first place. But for someone to be ejectable from a public event, they actually have to be causing a disturbance or a nuisance— unless AK law is very, very different than other states.

It also means that they would have to be given adequate time to comply with the instruction to leave. And if they refuse, a limited amount of force can be used to eject them, but restraining them for a trespass is really not an option. A trespass is a misdemeanor; there is no way that restraining someone for a misdemeanor offense is legal for a non-LEO.

There are really two separate questions:

1) Do they have the right to ask the reporter to leave?
1a) Do they have the right to use force to do so?
2) Do they have the right to restrain the reporter?

It is possible that they have the right to ask the reporter to leave— I mean, they can ask, of course, but to insist on it.

It is also possible they have the right to use a very limited amount of force to do so.

It is nearly impossible that they have the right to restrain the reporter for a misdemeanor.

A related editorial from the Texas Observer:

Conservative candidates like to argue that journalists are biased, part of a vast left-wing conspiracy to overthrow American values. They argue that thanks to the Internet and social media, voters have unfettered access to the marketplace of ideas. The news industry, as purveyors of information, has become passé.

On the contrary, citizens need trained reporters more than ever to sort fact from propaganda and truth from spin. They need well-informed journalists to ask the hard questions on their behalf.

The founders of this country, whom conservatives enjoy quoting so much, knew that an aggressive, diverse, skeptical and at times irreverent media is the best defense against demagoguery. That is why freedom of the press comes before the freedom to bear arms, and that is why journalists are the only non-governmental profession with rights spelled out in the Constitution.[Link: www.texasobserver.org…]

One of the main problems is that the security people never identified themselves to Hoflinger, apparently. In order to enforce any sort of order to leave property, you need to actually be an authority, and cite yourself as such.

All this is coming from my time as a bouncer and a doorman, by the way. If the person you’re asking to leave is not drunk, when you’re a bouncer, and not violent, there is very, very, very little you’re allowed to do to get them to leave. You really do just have to call the cops on them. You certainly can’t cuff them to a chair. If they get at all physical with you, you can respond with equal or lesser force; you are not allowed to escalate unless they have committed a felony crime.

Now, if that’s true for a clearly-identified bouncer, an employee of an actual business, at a very obviously private bar, I really doubt that it’s legal for a security guard who failed to identify himself has the right to detain a reporter at a public event.

re: #235 Obdicut

Er, in case I mislead anyone, law does vary by state, and in many, but not most, states, bouncers are allowed to take you by the arm or put a hand on your shoulder, whatever minimal force they can apply, to move you out of the bar. Depending on the state, it may or may not be illegal for them to do so— after they’ve clearly identified themselves and informed you that you have to leave and given you time to comply.

They cannot bounce you off a wall and then cuff you to a chair.

Man. The GOP’s loony candidates are out of control tonight. There are several debates going on, and in every one of them the GOP candidate is completely insane, advocating policies that are so far out on the fringe they sound like raving street corner preachers.

This country is going to be in big trouble if these ranting demagogues get elected. Extreme anti-abortion positions, calls for revoking several Constitutional amendments, calls for eliminating public education and Medicare and Social Security…

I have a very bad feeling about this. The crazies are sure to take credit for any and all Republican gains, even if these are disastrously slight for a midterm with a tanked economy. Their constituency will buy it, too, just as they bought the notion that McCain lost because he was not crazy enough. With a slate of rational candidates, of course, the Republicans could sweep the Dems away by historic margins, but the nuts will have their media machine to conceal and deny this.

The company belonging Mr. Fulton, who was pictured in the above clips, is currently not licensed for providing security services. Joe Miller therefore employed the services of a “rogue” security company, so to speak. ;-)

Holy Crap. That’s pretty scary. I hope that reporter sues their asses off and presses assault charges against them.

Looks like the Chicago way isn’t much different from the Alaska way.

re: #68 elizajane

She continues to caucus with the Republicans. If I’m not mistaken, they let her keep her committees last month even though she was running against their official candidate. Even aside from the “protect your own” feeling in the Senate, there must have been a good few people there who figured she’d be able to pull off a write-in against Miller. So her bridges aren’t burned in the Senate, not at all.

IIRC she never said anything negative about her fellow Republicans in the Senate. Her “beef” is with the Tea Party folks and with her family’s enemy Palin. I’d love to see her win and team up with the rest of the Alaska delegation in Congress to make sure Wasilla gets absolutely no federally-funded projects—ever.
