A special hearing on the rules and training requirements is going on in Madison today. Representative Scott Suder took the stand first off this morning...then it was Attorney General J.B Van Hollen's turn.
Questions to be answered include how much actual training time should a person should have to have.......and time based versus curiculum based training.

An unwanted guest for a guy on La Crosse's south side this week-end. Police say Todd Alesh wound up on an unknown couch just before four in the morning on Sunday. Homeowner says he had no idea who Alesh was. But he did ask the drunken and belligerent 26 year-old to leave multiple times. Cops finally got him out of the house. Blew a .32 on the scene and police collected a bag of marijuana as well.
A La Crosse guy put up a heckuva fight this week-end, but still wound up in the back of a squad car, with taser probes in his back and a spit hood on his head. Police say Shawn Xiong wasn't even the guy they were after when they responded to a domestic throw-down on Saturday night. But, they say, he was drunk and belligerent and causing problems, so they pulled out the handcuffs. But Xiong didn't want to go quietly. A scuffle ensued. They tumbled down some stairs. They tased him. Three times. Finally got him in the back of a squad. And he spit in a cop's eye. Thus the spit hood. Xiong faces a number of charges.
Special election tomorrow for La Crosse's state assembly seat. Democrat Jill Billings faces Republican DAve Drewes. Drewes is a fan of changes that governor Walker has pushed for in Wisconsin
