At least 500 Longshoremen stormed the Port of Longview and broke out windows in the guard shack, according to Longview Police Chief Jim Duscha. As men wielding baseball bats and crowbars held six guards captive, others cut brake lines on boxcars and dumped grain, according to Duscha.

Will justice be done? (Don't count on it. These are union thugs and democrat voters)
Let's not let this issue die. I've written the prosecutor and the AG.
“As men wielding baseball bats and crowbars held six guards captive, others cut brake lines on boxcars and dumped grain, according to Duscha”
But no laws were broken so there will be no arrests. /s
Send in the national guard. While the politburo destroys our economy and riles up the communist base (Hoffa), we need to prepare ourselves and our families. Not trying to sound crazy or extremist, but this is the reality we live in.
Johnny Friendly is running the waterfront.
If the law in Washington ignores this things will get much worse. They will be like a pit bull that has tasted blood.
Union GOONS doing what they do best !!
These are the thugs that Marlon Brando and Carl Malden were fighting in the 50’s film On the Waterfront. Hollywood would never make a movie like that today exposing the thugocracy of labor unions.
Our governor, Gregoire, is in the pocket of big labor. So the State Patrol probably won’t do anything. Our US senators are democrat, Patty Murray (’nuff said) and Maria Cantwell. Both Obama suck ups. It is entirely possible that no one will be arrested as a result of all this.
The ILWU is the old Communist Party USA controlled longshoremen’s union of Soviet operative and covert CPUSA member Harry Bridges and his merry band of marxists (Calif ILWU main CP union locals were No. 6 and No. 10).
While most of the old CP reds in the ILWU are dead or retired, their spawn are still far-leftists and violence prone (violence is a tactic that Bridges used to intimidate his opponents very successfully, and the Govt failed to put his red ass in jail).
In 1994,researchers John Haynes and Harvey Khler found proof in the Soviet Comintern archives that Bridges was one of 10 top covert CPUSA members that the Comintern International and the NKVD (successor to the KGB) trusted and used to carry out Soviet subversion and infiltration in the U.S. labor movement. (See Labor Studies, Fall, 1944).
Bridges was protected by a lot of powerful Americans, including congressmen, judges, professors, some of the media, etc.
Time to rip the red cover off his spawn and put them out of business as just plain criminals.
If anyone has any doubts about the union mob mind, read the comments on this article ( http://tinyurl.com/3eemsdd ) from the Tacoma paper. Pay special attention to the poster Kevin22262. He is a real piece of work.
Let 500 tea partiers try anything remotely like it, and they'd be charged to the hilt with conspiracy, kidnapping, assault etc etc.
But Da Unions do it and...nothing.
I guess they are starting to take the son of a bitches out
We would be sent to fema camp for re-education... Just saying!
Can you imagine what would happen if a group of angry parents held some teachers hostage for several hours over teaching practices or, sex ed or, some other issue?

First off, this is a very big deal and it deserves a swift and substantive response from the local, federal and state legal authorities. The Federal judge came out today with tougher sanctions, so we’ll see if it is ramped up by the union thugs. Of course the union is saying they don’t have anything to do with organizing the walk outs and the violence. Something to watch carefully and it will likely get even more explosive.
Isn’t that kidnapping, and isn’t kidnapping a federal offense? Of course, even if it is, Holder won’t do anything about it.
You mean and modernizing and automating the loading equipment?
BTW, your suggested link's title is something about "crony capitalism raises its ugly head." Really?
All these thugs should be arrested for terrorism, vandalism, kidnapping, and a long list of other charges.
Why are these thugs not in jail?
