It’s one thing if union thugs get in your face and threatens you. Â Â It’s quite another if they write you a letter and sign it. Â Here is a copy of a letter sent to Wisconsin businesses from police, firefighter and teachers’ “professional” (read: union thug) associations which threatens a boycott of the recipients’ business. Â One has to wonder if a “boycott” by police and firefighters extends to withdrawal of not just their business patronage, but their civic protection as well.
This is the sort of thing I would expect to see in Russia or Libya, not the US.
I also have an argument with the word “professional” appyling to people who would write a letter like this to the people who pay their salaries: Â (.PDF here)

James L. Palmer, II â€“ Executive Director, Wisconsin Professional Police Association (regrets DUI) email@example.com
Jim Palmer is responsible for the development, promotion, and operations of the WPPA. He also oversees the organizationâ€™s governmental affairs programs. Prior to joining the WPPA in 2003, Mr. Palmer worked for an Indiana law firm and primarily practiced corporate transactional law, which included incorporations, mergers and acquisitions, import law and product safety compliance, as well as specialized employment contracts. During that time, his representation included an investor-owned subsidiary of a national water utility, a regional hospital system, a minor league professional basketball team, and various units of local government. We were unable to find where Palmer has ever worked for a LE agency.
