"Let's take these son of bitches out" - First Volley? [krakatoa]

Hoffa's call to arms doesn't appear to have fallen on deaf ears, as Longshoremen in Seattle chose to take a decidedly militant approach towards negotiations today:

Hundreds of Longshoremen stormed the Port of Longview early Thursday, overpowered and held security guards, damaged railroad cars, and dumped grain that is the center of a labor dispute, said Longview Police Chief Jim Duscha.

Six guards were held hostage for a couple of hours after 500 or more Longshoremen broke down gates about 4:30 a.m. and smashed windows...

There is a Federal restraining order on the union after death threats were made last week. This activity violates that restraining order, so it will interesting to see if Holder's justice department pursues what appears to be a slam-dunk case.

[N]obody has been arrested.

Yeah. Foreshadowing much?

The story includes a slideshow that manages to put the police in the worst light possible for the very first pic. Funny that.
