Bat attack in lot at King of Prussia mall(Guess Who?)
Philadelphia Inquirer ^ | 06/25/2010 | Kathleen Brady Shea

Posted on 06/25/2010 5:43:28 PM PDT by Kid Shelleen

Violence erupted at a King of Prussia construction site Wednesday, and today, police are seeking the public's help to apprehend some bat-wielding assailants. --snip-- The victims said they were blocked by numerous union protesters from entering the construction site, and so they drove to the mall area to await police assistance.

A short time later, a black sedan pulled up and several men exited with baseball bats, ran up to the two trucks and repeatedly slammed the bats into the windows. As the workers exited the trucks, at least two were then physically assaulted with the baseball bats

I hope the perps are caught, but I fear they’ll have good union provided lawyers.

I’ve always thought it was stupid for states to have rear license plates only. Here’s a good reason for having them on the front, too. I imagine these guys took off before the guy could get a good pic of that back of the car. (Assuming they didn’t cover the rear ones or remove them.)

The OSHA inspector on the job stated he was only concerned if they used aluminum bats; as they are considered dangerous now.

I've had lots of both. Currently, have 3 500's and only 1 870 (and a couple of Win. 1200's which are a great in-between arm).

Are you going to shoot the hell out of it? Get an 870, you'll enjoy the quality difference. Defense/survival on a budget? The 500 will never let you down, and you can spend the $ you save on extra ammo.

I was going to look that up, too. I was visiting my folks in the ‘burbs west of Philly during college in the summer of ‘72 and remember the union violence well. Some things never change. Weren’t there lots of burnings of construction equipment the summer before, too, leading up to the riot?

While the 870 is very popular model, I'd direct your attention to the Mossberg 500. In my opinion it's superior to the Remington for the following reasons:

The Mossberg has a tang safety which can be switched on or off without removing your hand from the firing position.

The Mossberg has a superior loading gate through which shells can be fed without the possibility of catching ones fingers or shells in that piece of steel inherent to the Remington.

This is especially important in the dark.

The Mossberg comes factory drilled and tapped for a scope or optical sights.

Now I'm a fan of the 870 for hunting purposes. But for social work, I feel the Mossberg is superior.

Best,

L

Pennsylvania is a stupid state as it only has one license plate per car, usually on the back. This makes it easy for perps to get away and speeding so that it is hard to read the back license plate.

Two plates would make it easier for eyewitnesses to have two chances to see the license numbers.

Remember, this is a state run by “Fast Eddy” Rendell. Tell me he isn’t labored up? Would love to know if he had mob connections when he ran Philly? A Scarfo-boy, perhaps?

Why does it have a modified choke in it? Ordinarily one would use a cylinder choke for social work.

I agree with the .45, I loved to see how many more of these attacks occur after a few of these UNION THUGS are buried and the shooters are not charged. Since a bat is a weapon killing them would be justified. Unions have become so anti-american.

Peoples Republic of California has two plates - in practice if you spend all your time in one of the big cities, a rear plate only won’t attract a ticket.

Urban cops mostly have bigger fish to fry.

However once you get out on the interstate, you’re fair game without a front plate.

Yikes. KOP Mall isn't known for this kind of trouble. It's a very nice place normally.

That said, I saw union pickets out near the mall recently when I drove through the area. They had a huge inflated rat which they posted outside an offending construction site on North Gulph Road. They had positioned it so that it was intruding into the roadway. When I complained about the traffic hazard to the local police department, they were very familiar with the union rat, and told me there had been a lot of protests over non-union labor there recently. Perhaps it's the same bunch.

Thanks. Defense/survival in case of TEOTWAWKI. Hopefully, it stays in a gun safe with a ton of ammo, oatmeal, and peanut butter.
