This content was shared anonymously about a man who repeatedly has exhibited  less than peaceful behavior, yet who still retains his gig as a peacekeeper.

Date of Incident: Continuous
Individual Responsible: Michael Syphard #8846
Outfit: Wisconsin Capital Police
Phone: 608-266-8797

Officer Michael Syphard twice had felony charges of domestic abuse dropped to misdemeanors after beating his wife. He is still a Wisconsin Capital Police officer and still carries his gun.

He also threw a videographer to the ground in 2013 – it looks fake until you see Syphard’s leg behind that of the videographer.

Video Description:

August 5, 2013 – As the Wisconsin Capitol Police continue to arrest people for singing out their grievances against the Scott Walker Administration in the capitol, Officer Mike Syphard grabbed videographer Arthur Kohl-Riggs and threw him to the ground. He then accused him of being a drama queen and told him to knock it off.
