Group Demands Justice For "Right To Work" Protest

The group that had its tent torn down during the "Right To Work" protests at the Capitol on Tuesday wants police to find out who did it.

There were still several people inside a tent set up by Americans For Prosperity - a group that supports the "Right To Work" bills - when protestors tore it down (video included in the link).

Most of the protesters, who numbered around 12,000, opposed the legislation, which was passed and signed into law that same day.

The AFP is now calling for police to investigate and identify the people who pulled down the tent, and they're calling for the prosecutor to press charges.

Also in the tent was hot dog vendor Clint Tarver. His well-known hot dog stand wasn't in the tent when it came down - but Tarver was selling hot dogs from within the tent. Tarver says he lost about $450 in the process. But as of noon on Thursday, a fundraising site for Tarver has raised more than $28,000.

The group has scheduled an afternoon press conference.
