More union threats and intimidation of lawmakers over Senate Bill 5

Last week’s incident of SEIU thuggery in a Columbus restaurant didn’t end the bad behavior directed at GOP Senator Frank LaRose.

LaRose received a threat left as a comment on his Facebook page from Michael Piotrowski, the general counsel for the Ohio Fraternal Order of Police (FOP).

“Funny thing about cops, they hold a grudge.”

Piotrowski also says you better not refer to violent union members as “thugs”. If you do, he says you “may as well be calling people the n-word.”

Um…ok. Calling people acting thuggishly “thugs” is racist now, or something. I have the utmost respect for cops. But Mr. Piotrowski is way out of line.

In another incident, Westerville Representative Anne Gonzales and her family were advised by police to leave their own home on Saturday. Government unions had planned a protest outside her own house, and Westerville Police determined that it was unsafe for her and her family to stay in their home.

The only purpose of protesting in a residential neighborhood, outside a representative’s home, is to intimidate them and their family. I don’t care what group is doing it, that’s way over the line.
