From Faux Noise:
Three alcohol-fueled fights erupted at a Michigan auto dealership last week on the day employees were told the business was closing, another sign of a community on edge as it tries to deal with the flailing economy.This is only the beginning. Just wait til "ThePrez" gets finished killing off the UAW: Another 5 MILLION unemployed (and probably unemployable) workers, with access to alcohol and guns.
The first brawl took place outside Wayland Chevrolet at about 1 p.m. on Friday after several employees visited a bar. Police were alerted to the dispute, but it was broken up before they got there, Wayland Police Chief Dan Miller told FOXNews.com.
"Had they been sober, this probably wouldn’t have happened," Miller said.
Local news station WWMT-TV captured the second altercation at about 2 p.m. The video shows a scuffle, with employee Jason Stanton knocking another worker to the ground outside the dealership.
Later, Stanton explained what set him off.
"Does it matter how hard you work, because there is somebody a little bit above you that has the right to control every decision and every effort you put forward, don't you have a right to be a little bit mad when somebody says hey we're all done?" Stanton asked WWMT-TV. "It's terrible, horrible."
The third fight followed an incident between two salesmen at a pizza restaurant next door.
Wayland Chevrolet blames the shutdown on the downturn in the auto industry and the scheduled closing of General Motors Corp.'s metal stamping factory this year in the Grand Rapids suburb of Wyoming.
"I think people are just on edge," Miller said. It’s unfortunate, but it just adds insult to injury when they go out and get intoxicated."
Miller said disorderly conduct and assault charges are possible while they try to identify the employees involved.
The dealership employed about 30 people.
What, you thought that WASN'T the plan?
Puh-Leeeez! Use your fuuking brain.
Blaming unions for the conditions of the fate of the Big Three is like blaming the passengers on 9/11 for crashing their planes into the WTC. It took Nixon, the Arch-Puke, to go to China. It's gonna take a black Dim to kill off the Unions (and Social Security, too, but that's a little later.)
