    We probably wouldn't know about this if Fortune writer, Nina Easton, didn't live next door to the BofA Exec who was stormed by the SEIU last week.

    If this had been Tea Partiers, you know it would have been emblazoned across the front of every newspaper and would have led ever telecast for at least a day or two. But I'm guessing that 99% of you had never seen it until now. I'm a news junkie and I hadn't.

    So what do you think? Does it cross the line to storm a person's private home with an organized, loud, and threatening protest? And why wasn't this as newsworthy as a Tea Party event?

    Yes - and it was among the most disgusting displays yet by the far left props and union goons of SEIU...

    They print out their posters, put them on the bus, and away they go. And make no mistake, those goons are being paid a wage by SEIU.

    And now these same unions are wanting billions to bail out their pension funds...

    There's a particularly unseemly aspect about this not mentioned in Easton's article: the SEIU protestors were escorted to the house by DC Metro Police:

    The family of Greg Baer, Bank of America executive, is located in a jurisdiction protected by the Montgomery County Police Department (MCPD), which responded promptly to a disturbance call from his neighborhood last weekend.

    According to Corporal Dan Friz, an MCPD spokesperson in Rockville, Maryland, the department received a disturbance call from one of Baer’s neighbors at 4:10 pm last Sunday. Four MCPD units arrived at Baer’s Greenville Rd. address at 4:15 pm. At least two Metropolitan Police Department units from the nearby District of Columbia were already at the scene when they arrived.

    Why? Because police cars attached to the Washington MPD’s Civil Disturbance Unit had escorted the SEIU protesters’ buses to Baer’s home. Such cross-jurisdictional escort activity is not uncommon for both departments according to Friz and Metro Police Department spokesperson Officer Eric Frost. Still, the District police did not inform their colleagues of what was about to happen in one of their Maryland neighborhoods....



    D.C. Metro Police Escorted SEIU Protesters to Bank Of America Executive’s Home - Big Journalism


    The DC Metro Police didn't even have the professionalism to inform the local police that they were escorting the protesters into their jurisdiction - and taking them to private property to boot.

    The U.S. is going FERAL.

    They're an important arm of the Obama machine so no doubt they'll be declared too big to fail.

    Senator Bob Casey is rolling out a pension reform bill which will bail out union pensions for a minimum of $165B.

    ___

    Agreed - if for nothing else in that on one side of their mouths these union thugs wish to penalize Wall Street - the very institution that fed those pension funds in the first place, and the very institution that would again revitalize those same pension funds in due time if the government would simply step off and let the natural course of the market do its thing.
