At what point do union protests go too far?

This article raises so many question, first would be are these they type of actions unions expect to gain respect from? Frightening a 14 year old boy at home alone - the son of a BofA exec.? Is protesting at one's residence going too far? IMO, it is.

  • Yes..a group of protesters at a public event in a PUBLIC place where IF there are children their parents have CHOSEN to bring them vs a group of protesters at a PRIVATE home where someones CHILDREN LIVE and have no choice because the protesters TOOK that security. Yeeeaaaah...EXACT same thing! But it's good to know that even if you DO see it that way you subscribe to the 2 wrongs make a right theory. Either way...I see why you hide behind Anon :)

  • Ok for open weaponery as long as you have tea bags in hand. Not ok to stand outside someone's home

  • They weren't just standing outside someones home. There were 14 buses that pulled up and union members filed out and started chanting over an intercom while a teenager was home alone. This is about the article, so I guess you didn't bother reading it?

    Thanks for stopping by to try out a witty retort, but it really has nothing to do with the question. Move along now.

  • Read the article, the entire article. Then come back here and try to justify their actions to me.

    You can't. There is no justification for this.

  • They stormed the neighborhood was on private property tresspassing and scared the poor kid. This was not a CEO's home but a company attorney. Seems like a really low thing to do but not shocking. I remember my neighbors home being vandalized a group of his coworkers at Boeing spray painted Scab all over his house. He had 5 kids to feed and had no choice but to work. They were haggling over money that was eaten up by rising union dues so to him it was ridiculous to fight. They had death threats and were terrified. So I am not shocked a union would stoop to breaking the law and scare a kid in his own home.

  • 14 busses worth of people? That's not shocking to you?

    That's a lot of people.

  • It was SCIU, you know  the  union boss the # 1 visitor to the white house who is an adviser to Obama. They get away with it because the police are sacred of them. The Washington D.C. police escorted them to the guys house outside of their jurisdiction. The guy they were trying to intimidate is a democrat who use to work in Bill Clinton's white house. He is now a lawyer for Bank of America.

    If they want to protest they should go to the bank and not somebody's private home.
