Why Unions Suck, Part 3--posted by Tony Garcia on 11/04/2012
Yet another example of intimidation efforts by union thugs.
I have said before and maintain that stealing / vandalizing political property or doing such things to property for assumably political purposes is akin to terrorism. I maintain these crimes should carry felony charges.
These punks should be charged with a felony for each sign.
Perrysburg police arrested four Toledo area men early Friday morning on charges of stealing Mitt Romney campaign signs in Wood and Lucas counties in Northwest Ohio.There is intimidation by unions for opposing them, crossing a picket line (which myopic union lovers will say is justification for the union's felonious criminal activity), for wanting to vote against unionization (again, they will say this warrants threats even though it flies in the face of a belief of a free society) and we know it exists. Now is proof of theft by union members for not being politically in goose-step.
The signs were found in a pickup truck owned by Sheet Metal Workers International, Union Local 33 in Parma, according to the police report.
Many of the signs -- some measuring as large as 4 feet by 8 feet -- were believed to have been put up by members of Northwest Ohio Conservative Coalition, said John McAvoy, the group's president.
Perrysburg police reported that at 1 a.m., four men – Corey Beaubian, 37, Sean Bresler, 33; and John Russell, 39, all of Toledo; and Christopher Monaghan, 41, of Rossford -- were arrested and charged with receiving stolen property. Police also said the Ford F-150 pickup truck also contained tools such as drills that could have been used to take the large signs down.
The signs were reportedly removed from private property and business locations in Lucas and Wood Counties.
The reason for doing this kind of cowardly behavior is to intimidate people into silence. That and a lack of confidence in one's own beliefs so much so that opposition is threatening and must be silenced.
