Union Thugs Beat Another Guy

The article doesn't say whether or not the subject of this story is a union member, an agency fee payer (SEIU represents state workers, and he's a state worker), or what. Shoddy reporting, although it's possible the reporter doesn't understand issues involving forced unionism (then they shouldn't be reporting on it!).

Ken Hamidi is a state worker at the California Franchise Tax Board. Last night he walked into a union hall in Sacramento for an SEIU local 1000 meeting...

"Three, four people jumped at me, wrestled with me, then did all that," said Hamidi. "I was covered in blood and then over to the emergency room."

Photos of Hamidi in the hospital show him bloodied from the brawl. So why did this happen? Besides being a state worker, Hamidi says he's an unpaid reporter for a cable access show and a vocal critic of the SEIU. He calls the state workers' union corrupt.

"This is a union hall that is leased and is being furnished and equipped and everything with our money," said Hamidi.

"Our money". So he is affiliated with the union somehow. Let's read on.

Hamidi says he came to the hall to expose how he says SEIU union leaders are spending tens of thousands of dollars on a political race, he claims, they have no right to do. After he and a photographer walked in to the meeting, it didn't take long for Hamidi to be right out the door and on his way to the hospital.

We called SEIU union leaders to get their side of the story, but they refused to comment.

Ah, those hardworking, downtrodden union members, fighting "the man" in their effort to get only what's due them. What crap.

Via a link at NewsAlert, here's the police report on the beating of Ken Gladney at the hands of SEIU henchmen.

The police report is unambiguous about what happened on August 6th in St. Louis. The White House, through SEIU, did indeed ‘punch back twice as hard.’ What is ambiguous, however, is why prosecutors haven’t pursued the charges against SEIU. As you will learn, there is a lot to suggest that Bob McCulloch, the St. Louis DA, is trying to cover-up SEIU’s crime. Stay tuned as the truth comes out.
