Union Protesters Arrested Trying to Shut Down Traffic at LAX
Breitbart ^

Posted on 11/21/2012 8:39:23 PM PST by chessplayer

Police were forced to arrest a dozen union members today after an Service Employees International Union protest around Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), which shut down traffic completely and added 90 minutes to travellers’ commute time, went awry. SEIU workers handed out fliers to passengers at LAX, marched near the LAX entrance, and ignored police orders to disperse at 1:15 p.m.

The rage on the ground at LAX was palpable as Americans simply tried to get to loved ones for the Thanksgiving weekend.

Vile pieces of filth. They have effectively and purpously ruined Thanksgiving for thousands of people. How they think this will gain them sympathy is beyond me.

Twinkies could have survived a nuclear war, but did not survive unions.

A union strike is more destructive than a nuclear strike!

The unionized police will eventually be the political police of the service unions, sort of like the SS were the political police of the NSDAP, which was originally quite union (and worker) orientated.

Now that Zobama has won the WH again,,,with full support of the unions, we can expect even more labor actions which will not be opposed by the police or NLRB.
We can only hope the rage will build...and we will finally wake up a large portion of the voting public..to save the Union, but it is a long shot.

Well..if I were out on the freeway, acting as though I were an endangerment to myself and to many motorists..I would deserve to be arrested. So, lock'em up!

They are not Americans, they don’t celebrate Thanksgiving.

Looks at the leadership first and last names.

We are being aggressively invaded and pushed around physically and verbally by ridiculous foreigners of all types.

Mexicans saying “too bad about your holiday, this is an important strike for our lives”, and guys named Muhammed on CNN telling me what “our” country needs to do to support the Arab world and turn our economy around.

Good freakin’ grief!

Aliens, all of them. If not by birth then by upbringing and culture.

They already are for the Democratic party.

Ever notice they can always “deny” permits or allowance of any conservative related demonstration but somehow, any liberal demonstration of every color is always allowed to gone on and gone, whenever, wherever.

Ludicrous.

Lock them up and hopefully, they won’t see a judge until Monday due to the Holiday.

Let them sit in LA County Jail with all the Gang Bangers until then.

Unfortunately, they will see the judge on Friday as the most you can hold someone is 48-72 hours.

How many of those who were delayed or otherwise adversely affected by the actions of these cretins vote democRAT which is essentially voting pro-union?

I feel for the conservatives affected by this. The democRATs deserved it.

If you support unions, you support this behavior. Think about that next time you vote or purchase something. Enjoy.

If any of the protestors work at LAX, they have violated their work agreement with LAX. FIRE Them! There are lots of unemployed people that would love their job! For the others, let them rot in jail for a week.

They are reporting locally (DC Metro) that some union goons in MD are already disrupting WALMART....Walmart says they have a contingency plan.

The only feasible plan would be FIRE the strikers on the spot and waste no time shutting down a store....

Take all the ‘cheap prices’ from the neighborhoods and the folks will ‘turn’ on the goons.

OUR job is to let the masses know they are getting screwed.

They will not hear of it anywhere else...

C’mon, people! Get your heads out of your ****!

We WANT them to shut down LAX. As soon as the cretins who voted for OBUMMER get discomfited the better.

Starve the beast.

Death of a thousand cuts to the infrastructure and bureaucracy.

SEIU scumbags..they interviewed people who are inconvenienced because of these vermin..they were ALL sick of the Unions..so maybe the one blessing in disguise here is that everyone sees the unions for exactly what they are..Commie scum..they are bitching about wanting better health care..SEIU supports Obama, they love Obamacare..if they want health care they can go on the Govt run health care they love so much

“the most you can hold someone is 48-72 hours.”

L.A. has enough police stations that they can release and re arrest them after 71 hours and move them to another station thereby keeping themn indefinatly without booking them!

I had it happen to an employee of mine that gave the Sheriffs a bad time and the only way I found him was a narc friend of mine on the department found him for me.

They had held him for a week without booking him!

I strongly believe in people’s right to voice their opinion but when you infringe on other people’s rights, particularly at this time of the year, the National Guard should have moved in immediately and corralled these people in an area out of the main traffic artery.

“the most you can hold someone is 48-72 hours.”

Way back in they day I had a friend arrested on a holiday weekend for DUI and he was held for 3-4 days until the following Monday. I believe he was arrested on a New Years Eve that fell on a Thursday night, thus the courts were closed on Friday so he wasn't released until he saw a judge on Monday afternoon as the courts were jammed with holiday DUI drivers. I believe he spent over 80 hours in custody, but this was over 35 years ago so I may not be 100% on the details.

Police were “forced” to arrest?

WTH does that even mean? Police were forced to do their jobs? Oh, I get it, they had to arrest their Union Buddies.

I’m sure there were many tears shed as they hugged them before placing them in their Taxpayer funded Police Cars.

This Country is so gone...

Wow, he’s not reporting what actually went on.

They were protesting an aviation company who threw the union out and created they own agreement for higher pay and better benefits. This union had NO business being there as they were dumped by the employees for whom they were supposedly protesting for.

Also, LAPD granted the SEIU permits to hold their demonstration. Which block traffic at Sepulveda and Century (the main route into LAX) Same police force which is threating to lay police off unless we vote them another tax increase. Start with laying off the ahole who granted this permit.

Finally, a congress critter from LA spoke at their protest about health benefits. OMG, I am so sick of these sanctamonious bitches acting like they care. Theives, every damned one of them. Hope I live long enough to see the slaves rise up against all of this crap.

I'll give the edge to Hamas since obama hasn't given SEIU any missiles yet. At least that I know of.

Oh, wait. I saw the picture so I’m wrong. They aren’t celebrating Thanksgiving at all. Obviously not US citizens or Christians. Fire them all and hire people who want a job. How many passengers will opt to drive instead of fly next year? That would eliminate a few union jobs right there.
