Scott Hagerstrom, director of Americans for Prosperity’s Michigan chapter, led a press conference this afternoon to denounce union goons’ despicable conduct earlier this week.
Maybe he’s an associate of this jackass:
No, tool. This isn’t about justice for a tent; it’s about justice for innocent men and women who were verbally and physically assaulted merely for exercising their right to free speech and assembly. Union thugs may not think much of accountability, but Hagerstrom and AFP are absolutely right to demand it.
Mayor Bernero was so busy gushing over the “beautiful” thugs who descended on downtown Lansing, he forgot to look out for his constituents:
Hagerstrom announced that he has filed a police report and intends to press charges.
Hagerstrom also revealed that numerous 911 calls had been placed while the assaults were taking place, but no calls were returned and there has so far been no follow-up:
Other victims of vicious thuggery stood up to give accounts of what happened to them:
One man even said that a union goon threatened to go to his house.
Is that what civility looks like?
It’s the anti-right-to-work protesters who broke the law. But will they be punished? According to activist Tim Bos, not unless something changes. He described feeling helpless as police looked on while the assaults took place:
It’s certainly becoming more difficult to recognize. Thankfully, pro-freedom advocates like those at AFP are bravely willing to take a stand against tyranny and for our American principles. AFP has done its job when it comes to protecting citizens; it’s time for Mayor Bernero and the city of Lansing to step up and do theirs.
