    Default Union protest at 12th and Pearl is now out of control -Goldtex Post Bros

    I've slowly watched more and more union guys protesting each morning to the point where there's 50- 75 now, and they're surrounding vehicles of the site workers calling them "fat f*cks," "f*cking faggots." I personally saw them threatening a worker in a nice pickup trying to get into the site today. One guy, a fat fellow in a red Phillies cap and sunglasses, personally said "I'll see you later today you fat f*ck. You're dead you fat f*ck."

    I talked to a neighbor who said it's the norm and they spend a better part of the morning threatening the black security guards with what he called "racially tinged words." This morning they blocked a delivery truck and all the traffic behing it, including an ambulance, for a half hour. They also crowded Jany's doorway the 45 min I was there this AM and kept using the bathrooms without asking.

    One guy seemed really out of place. He was slim and healthy looking, dressed in suit pants and a pressed shirt, light gray slicked-back hair. I figured he was a delegate or something until it turned out he was a cop. The guy in the truck asked what to do and the cop was snickering at him and said "you gotta get through then get through" knowing a bunch of guys had the front of his truck blocked off.

    The delivery truck and the people waiting behind it trying to cross 12th blocked off by the union guys alsogot no help from the cops. There were 2 other cops there just watching and doing nothing as these guys blocked traffic during rush hour. One was in uniform. Another was a middle aged lady wearing a dress that you'd wear to a graduation or wedding along with a Philly PD armband.

    Obviously calling the cops wasn't going to do any good so I called Fox 29. This is as bad as I've seen it thus far.

    This is the sort of thing cell phone video cameras were invented for.

    It has to be done from a resident above. No doubt in my mind they'd mug any everyday citizen trying to film it. Oh, forgot one thing: I really hope the ones with guns on their belts were plain clothed officers.

    Another thing. They parked all down Wood Street b/w 12th and 13th infront of driveways, in loading zones, and in front of hydrants. They clearly are allowed to do whatever they want short of beating people up.

    I'm not sure what they think they're accomplishing.

    The parking lot on the west side of the street where they'd usually protest from is now fenced in as of last week, so they just crowd the sidewalks and business doorways now.

    Last week they had a cookout on the sidewalk.

    What? The 10+ videos Post Bros. uploaded aren't enough? Once again, here is the youtube playlist:

    Thank you. The city is completely corrupt and will take little to no action to control these scum. The police observers are members of a union themselves and not very sympathetic to the law-abiding folks who are being harassed by these obese pieces of human filth. The only, and I mean only, hope here is to draw more and more attention to it and increase the pressure from the outside. In a just world, troops and tanks would show up and mop the streets with these losers.

    If by "good guy" you mean "scumbag" and guilty of assault judging by at least one of those videos.

    These videos are really disturbing. How do these guys sleep at night?

    Unions were necessary for this country to rise out of the dark ages of the industrial revolution. Now they're just dinosaurs who never adjusted.

    Yeah he's a good guy, bullying outnumbered guys who are too afraid of getting arrested to stand up for themselves. I hope one of the delivery trucks shows up with a driver still drunk from the night before and decides to step on the gas and kills all of them.

    You hope to kill people?

    I worked for all the big general contractors. They would pay you $5.00 an hour if they could get away with it. They would risk your life to save a buck. I have seen men lose arms and legs because the contractors cut corners. And you want to kill people?

    You have know idea.

    lol, unions are the worst because they aren't really human and deserve to be killed.

    I'm not surprised they're your peers. You're of the same caliber if reading comprehension and general buffoonery are any indication.
    If one of these guys getting harassed and assaulted by your goon friends finally had enough and gunned a delivery truck right over all of them, well... there's definitely other deaths worth grieving.

    And you are free to accept those terms of employment or else put your human capital to other uses. If you are willing to do the job for $5/hr, then that's what it's worth. That's called the free market. Ask the workers at this project if they're unhappy to have the work. They look eager to me.

    These turds are at the corner of Vine and 12th all day with one of their blow up toys. If you happen to drive by, let them know what you think.
