11. Isn't that convenient?

Too bad "our" law enforcement doesn't "serve and protect" us, just corporate "people." The officer should have at least written the wal-mart manager a citation for filing a false report.
I have organized as a carpenter an helped other trades during (usually) winter months and even though the police are Union "brothers" they usually side with the corporate interests. I have been jailed for felony intimidation of a police officer after a very nasty strike. The charges were reduced to a misdemeanor, I spent 3 days in jail. The steel company I was helping to organize (on my own time in my small community) closed it's doors again and opened up under a different name again. Replacing the Union "agitators" with people who agreed to not join a Union. The workers were paid minimum wage and no overtime pay. Many business people in our community disliked me after that...greedy bastards.
