Oregon governor deploys state police after Republicans flee Capitol

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown deployed the state police Thursday to try to round up Republican lawmakers who fled the Capitol to block a vote on a landmark economy-wide climate plan. Gov. Brown denounced the GOP walkout and explained her decision to compel a quorum. She added it was ’absolutely unacceptable’ that the lawmakers would ’turn their backs on their constituents’.

How can a governor make the police do anything to impinge the freedom of any citizen that is not under suspicion of committing a crime?

When the Democrats in WI crossed into IL to avoid a vote a few years back the Republicans didn't do anything like that. Man the leftists are such whiny babies.
