You Know Your Cause is Lost When Your Action Plan Includes Disrupting Funerals

Move over Westboro Church there’s a new asshat in town: Teamsters Local 727. The Washington Free Beacon reports:

The company testified in its filing that union members blocked grieving family members from leaving its parking lot, used bullhorns to shout obscenities at workers and mourners, and unleashed a German Shepard on a dead woman’s daughter and husband.

The funeral home was eventually forced to call the police when picketers allegedly disrupted a child’s funeral with laughter. The officer asked the Teamsters to leave, but protesters returned when he drove away.

“We will be here for the visitation; we will be here for your funeral,” Teamster driver Lester Plewa allegedly shouted into a bullhorn as a funeral director met with a dying man planning his arrangements with family members.

Instead of offering them 9% raises as the funeral home has done they should be offered pink slips at the very least. As Instapundit’s Glenn Reynolds suggests, this kind of thing will only end when people start showing up at their houses and their personal tragedies.
