Radio transmissions raises questions about Lansing police during protest

LANSING — The release of radio transmissions between the Lansing police officers and the dispatch center on March 16 are raising questions about why Lansing Police Chief Teresa Szymanski ordered officers to leave the Capitol during a protest that resulted in more than a dozen arrests. Szymanski has defended her decision, claiming that she determined, after consulting with Michigan State Police, the mayor and officers on scene that MSP did not require assistance in arrests. However, the radio transmissions show that officers were dispatched to the Capitol in order to transport protesters who had already been arrested for being in the building after it was closed.

Michigan’s largest teachers union joins gubernatorial recall effort

Michigan’s largest teachers union joins gubernatorial recall effort

Michigan’s largest teachers union is formally supporting efforts to recall the governor and members of the state House following last week’s passage of bills that reduce job security and limit collective bargaining rights. In a message to members on Friday the Michigan Education Association said that it will support existing recall efforts and will also consider backing some efforts to recall state senators. “Our elected leaders need to know that we will not sit idly by as they try to dismantle public education, destroy the middle class, and defeat MEA and other public sector unions!” the group said as it urged teachers to use their summer break to become politically active.
