State Representative Says He's "Enjoying" Protests

A Michigan State Representative says he's "enjoying" protests over the Right To Work bill.

State Representative Dave Agema, a Republican from Grandville, posted a message on his Facebook page shortly after a contentious vote on Michigan's "Right To Work" status.

Some 10,000 people are at the Capitol today, most of them opposed to the bill.

After a 58-51 vote one of the two "Right To Work" bills, Agema posted the following:

"Riot police on horses are now macing and pushing back the crowds who tried to storm the building. I fell like I'm back in the military- I'm rather enjoying this. It brings back memories."

According to his biography, Agema is a former fighter pilot and Lieutenant Colonel with the U.S. Air Force.

Agema is also one of two Michigan representatives to the Republican National Committee.
