You are aware that police had no problem arresting and pepper spraying the clowns within the first hour or so of the tantrum.

In this case the police and firemen are excluded from the right to work law because they have a different set up. I’m not thrilled with it but they aren’t breaking the state the way teachers, municipal, and factory workers are.

Well, then things are very different in Michigan than they are here in California. The municipal bankruptcies here, are as a DIRECT RESULT of the profligate spending by those entities on Çops and Firemen. Pick any city in the state and you will find that between 75 and 80% of their costs are DIRECTLY ATTRIBUTABLE to what the cops and the firefighters are being paid. Here in CA it’s doubly bad because these cretins can (and most do) retire at 50 with full retirement and medical benefits for life for them and their spouses. We have had two fire chiefs retire ( from the same district ) in the past three years. In each case, their retirement is something on the order of $100k per year more than they were being paid while working. Just do the math! This is unsustainable.
