FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MILWAUKEE-On Monday, April 15, 2013 an act of terrorism was perpetrated at the Boston Marathon in Boston, MA. We do not yet know who did it. Properly written law only punishes an act after a crime has been committed. Improper law places restrictions on the innocent.
The CPoW position on acts of violence is straight forward; LAW exists to restrain the Lawless. If that means using lethal force, so be it. “Because a sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.” Ecclesiastes 8:11
We support the Rule of Law. We are committed to having the Civil Government once again punish criminals, not abet them. CPoW agrees with Alexander Hamilton, “The hope of impunity is a strong incitement to sedition; the dread of punishment, a proportionately strong discouragement to it.” (Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 27).
More citizen disarmament and harassment is not the answer. Neither is falsely accusing people you do not like. The person or persons who planted these explosives are the ones who are guilty. CPoW is not shy in asserting that the death penalty is the appropriate punishment for murder.
The Constitution Party of Wisconsin is a political party. We are committed to the electoral process. We are committed to placing people of courage into positions of authority, who will see that these crimes are punished. The only proper “terror” would be that of criminals afraid of the consequences and thus not carrying out their evil ideas.
