Walker Supporters Plan Second Rally on Falls Footbridge
Supporters of Gov. Scott Walker gathered on the footbridge over Highway 41/45 Monday, and organizers are planning to gather once again on election night.
On Monday, a group of Gov. Scott Walker supporters gathered on the footbridge over Highway 41/45 in Menomonee Falls. Organizers are planning another rally Tuesday from 4-7 p.m.
Walker backers waved signs as cars passed underneath the pedestrian bridge near Best Buy and Steinhafel's, which is accessed via the frontage road that joins Water Street. Monday's demonstration went without incident even though a Menomonee Falls police officer stopped out to the demonstration, according to one participant.
That's a stark contrast to a similar demonstration held at the footbridge across Interstate 94 near North 72nd Street in Milwaukee where supporters were asked to vacate the bridge, and one 16-year-old boy was allegedly handcuffed by a Milwaukee police officer.
