    Funny you would think this would have some coverage in the national media.

    Lawless: Unionized Longshoremen Take Hostages, Destroy Property in Labor Dispute - Guy Benson



    The WH has said nothing about this assault, this riot occurred later in the evening after their leader R Trumka sat in the Presidential Box with Mrs Obama. No condemnation from Trumka and of course none from J Hoffa who called for violence a few days earlier.

    When a local TV station sent a camera crew to get the Union side of the story they got the following 'greeting' (vid at link)

    I hope they charge everyone and anyone who damaged property, or committed any crimes. That's BS. I'll never forget the conversations I had with the honcho from the Local 22 who was trying to sell me on going union. He thought he was telling me stuff I wanted to hear, when in fact it only made me want to punch him in the face.
