Sean Kedzie the son of Wisconsin state senator Neal Kedzie was beaten while trying to protect a Romney yard sign. Two men tried to steal a Romney yard sign. Sean Kedzie tried to stop them but then the suspects threw him to the ground and beat him.
Here is part of the press release from Senator Kedzie:
Early on Friday morning, October 19th, my son Sean was awakened by noises outside his residence in Whitewater. As he went to see what the commotion was about, he noticed an individual removing a Romney/Ryan yard sign from his property. He yelled to the person that they were taking something not theirs and to return it immediately. The individual returned the sign, however, a second person confronted and attacked Sean without warning.
Sean was wrestled to the ground by both persons, held down by a constricting chokehold, and struck repeatedly about the face and head. He nearly passed out from the chokehold and suffered contusions to his face and eyes. Fortunately, an alert neighbor heard the commotion, scared the individuals away, and called the police. My wife and I were awakened by a telephone call from Sean’s roommate that Sean had been taken by ambulance to Fort Atkinson Memorial Hospital.
This is abhorrent! Can’t we all act like civilized human beings? Yes, things can get heated in politics but violence has absolutely no place in politics. We air our differences with words, not with fists. I hope the police catch the two men who committed this act of brutality. Praying that Sean Kedzie has a speedy recovery.
