An aforementioned acorn takes root:
Madison Police Department Capt. Victor Wahl, in writing the Spring edition of the department's "Legal Update," said bluntly that [Wisconsin AG J.B. Van Hollen's April] memo made no difference in how Madison would enforce its law.

"First, it is important to realize that the memorandum is advisory only," wrote Wahl, who has a law degree, and "does not in any way restrict the legal authority of officers to take action or of individual prosecutors to pursue charges."
