“Police had been called right away, but never showed.”
You mention that only in passing, but I find that VERY troubling and think it needs follow-up or looking into for the reason, or worse - a possible tie-in or cooperation with SEIU?
If I recall correctly, when she said that with a puzzled tone, I just pointed out that they were probably in the same or similar union. I mentioned the extortion letter the three LEO and the firefighter unions had sent (with the teachers’ union) to those businesses in Wisconsin. Her face just dropped in appalled understanding.
