Lambertville vandalism turns life-threatening

Great union tradition. Don't get your way, get violent.

So are the Pinkertons used to surpress unionization. Both sides are too willing to use violence. There are better ways to settle differences.

Nice, you went back a hundred years or more to defend Union Thugs of today.

Not to defend this particular action, but neocons seem to have no problem with bombing countries over false pretenses....killing women and children in the name of the military-industrial complex....all the while, they're outraged over one incident by one lone union member.

I was NOT defending the Thugs of either side. Just pointing out that both sides used violence to get their way.

Lousy attempt at deflecting the discussion from the topic. Epic failure.

The whole reason I am packing when I step out my front door to investigate something weird.

That guy would have had an ass full of buckshot.

Just pointing out more hypocrisy. Anti-union neocons painting the entire labor movement by one incident by one wackjob, yet have no problem with senseless wars fought for profit.
