Charge NYC Union Leaders With Negligent Homicide

Well, it turns out that the slow snow removal process in New York City was the act of childish adults protesting budget cuts.

According to the New York Post:

"[Unionized city workers] sent a message to the rest of the city that these particular labor issues are more important," said City Councilman Dan Halloran (R-Queens), who was visited yesterday by a group of guilt-ridden sanitation workers who confessed the shameless plot.

On Wednesday, MYFOXNY.com reported that two people died, including a new born baby, because emergency crews couldn’t navigate the unplowed streets.

Plain and simple: the union leaders who called for the job action should be charged with negligent homicide.  Let them prove that their actions did not result in the unfortunate deaths of these New Yorkers.

For too long, Big Labor has been allowed to hold taxpayers hostage in order to get their way at the bargaining table.  And this time, their utter selfishness may have contributed to the deaths of two innocent people. 

Jeopardizing the health and safety of innocent New Yorkers in order to make a cheap political statement is reprehensible, and must be denounced in the strongest possible terms. 

New York citizens need to know if the willful inaction of municipal employees contributed to nine-hour wait for emergency crews that tragically resulted in the death of a newborn child.

This is America – such behavior cannot be acceptable.

Or are we turning into Germany and France and willing to sit idly by as the actions of Big Labor result in death and chaos?
