Michigan right-to-work battle draws early crowd of hundreds to state Capitol

Via freep.com » Submitted On Tue, 12/11/2012 - 2:24pm by 六十四 Cerca

What began as a peaceful protest this morning became testy this afternoon, prompting Michigan State Police officers to don their riot gear to control an increasingly angry crowd.

Tear gas was sprayed at least once. And Captain Harold Love of the Michigan State Police confirmed police used pepper spray on at least one demonstrator.

He said police were positioned around the Capitol trying to keep people away from the building when one demonstrator grabbed a trooper and tried to pull her into the crowd. The trooper beside her reacted with pepper spray and the man let go of the trooper, Love said. He was not arrested.

Love said two other people were arrested for trying to force their way into the nearby Romney building, where Gov. Rick Snyder has offices. He couldn't say whether they had been charged.

Typical gang union liberals. Violence, race card, and class divisions is all they have because they have no real answers to any real issues. Besides, what happened to that freedom of choice stuff they were all spouting in election season about abortion?

This just show the pure thuggish mentality of most union, sadly. They don’t care about freedom of speech or actually solving any problems, they want to shut you down and shut you up, end of story. For them, this wasn't a fight of ideas, it was just a fight.

The unions have lost the a large part of their power and influence in this country and are desperately trying to hold onto what they have left. Violence and intimidation are the only tactics left and the American people are seeing that.

Just as the liberals get away with name calling and inciting hate filled speeches... what some would call bullying, the same tactics are being used by the union leaders. I wished that people would call them out on this.

As protests against Michigan’s right-to-work laws swelled, pro-union Democrat legislator Douglas Geiss took to the state House floor – and Twitter – to promise violence. “We are going to undo 100 years of labor relations,” said Geiss. “And there will be blood.

If anyone doesn't believe we are in for one heck of a fight-they're in a coma. We now have state representatives that are en sighting violence! What's next? Entering your home and beating the crap out of you because you posted a comment disagreeing with these worshipers of the devil.

Fox News has a split screen and split audio so that these fools are holding forth. They look ridiculous. Most probably never worked at a real job. Hired guns. And Obie is already "organizing" them.

Having viewed the EVIL one for several days now, I am now convinced that he is more of a professional agitater than a President. He is not a good man.
