The doors of an inner city Milwaukee Catholic school were super glued shut Thursday ahead of a visit by Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker.

"Some of these folks super glued our front doors at the prep school," Messmer Prepatory School President Br. Bob Smith told WTMJ Newsradio.

Smith said a woman was walking around in front of the school, urging people to protest Walker's visit.

According to Smith, one protestor said, "'Get ready for a riot,' because they were going to disrupt the visit."

Smith said the governor's Friday visit to read to schoolchildren did not have any political overtones and was unrelated to any of the controversy surrounding Walker and union collective bargaining rights.

"People ought to start acting like adults," Smith said. "You've got little kids who have no clue what you're talking about, and you make something political when it isn't, that's just flat-out wrong."

In March, doors at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee were super glued shut before a campus rally to protest Walker's budget.
