#2 Sounds like the unions are upset about someone muscling in on their territory...

#3 One of the assailants punched Welk in the mouth before the group fled in a Mercedes-Benz.

Heck, they don't even ride Detroit/American. Heh.

#5 I'd recommend that like in other third world countries, hire a different band of thugs to act as mercs for you when out there among the masses.

#6 The union's letter did not specify whether the guards should be armed or not.

Nah, don't arm them. Then maybe they'll get robbed instead of the news drones...

#7 I remember many years back in Richmond (CA), I got a call from a friend in Oakland. She was hysterical, because her boyfriend had just had his teeth knocked out and he was face down in a gutter. So I drove down with her, got out of the car, and pointed my loaded .45 revolver (S&W highway patroleman's model) in the general direction of *everybody* while she dragged him into the car.

Nobody batted an eye... and that was 15 years ago. Ah, O Town! Did you ever not suck?
