SEIU protesters descend on bank exec’s home, terrifying his son

posted at 10:16 pm on May 21, 2010 by Allahpundit

Big Journalism has been all over this, including the odd detail that D.C. cops evidently escorted the Purple People-Beaters to the Bank of America executive’s home in Rockville, Maryland. Fox News regular Nina Easton was on the scene, with good reason: She lives right next door. Quote:

Last Sunday, on a peaceful, sun-crisp afternoon, our toddler finally napping upstairs, my front yard exploded with 500 screaming, placard-waving strangers on a mission to intimidate my neighbor, Greg Baer. Baer is deputy general counsel for corporate law at Bank of America (BAC, Fortune 500), a senior executive based in Washington, D.C. And that — in the minds of the organizers at the politically influential Service Employees International Union and a Chicago outfit called National Political Action — makes his family fair game.

Waving signs denouncing bank “greed,” hordes of invaders poured out of 14 school buses, up Baer’s steps, and onto his front porch. As bullhorns rattled with stories of debtor calls and foreclosed homes, Baer’s teenage son Jack — alone in the house — locked himself in the bathroom. “When are they going to leave?” Jack pleaded when I called to check on him…

Now this event would accurately be called a “protest” if it were taking place at, say, a bank or the U.S. Capitol. But when hundreds of loud and angry strangers are descending on your family, your children, and your home, a more apt description of this assemblage would be “mob.” Intimidation was the whole point of this exercise, and it worked-even on the police. A trio of officers who belatedly answered our calls confessed a fear that arrests might “incite” these trespassers.

According to Easton, Baer is … a lifelong Democrat. For her trouble in reporting on this, she’s naturally been smeared by the left. As for why SEIU is singling out Bank of America for thug tactics, supposedly it’s a protest of foreclosures by banks generally but Big Journalism notes that the union apparently owes BoA $90 million, which, per Easton, means $4 million in outstanding interest and fees. Terrorizing an exec’s family might make them think twice about being too insistent in collecting. Click the second image below to watch.

They’re not dumb enough to do this in Texas. Do I think they would’ve been shot? No. Beaten into submission by the neighbors? Quite possibly.

Trespassing, fear of life, I think a shotgun would have been appropriate. Damn the ‘escalation or inciting’ argument. They need to be resisted, and it needs to start now.

AnotherOpinion on May 21, 2010 at 10:26 PM

I can’t believe they were on the front porch of that home.

I don’t think this tactic would fly in Texas. People are touchy about trespassing here. We know our rights as property owners and are ready to enforce them.

juliesa on May 21, 2010 at 10:26 PM

The organizers of this should be jailed for attacking a guys house. Next time I hope the house falls on them.

Here’s the phrase you need to become familiar with:

“I was in fear of death or serious injury, officer.”

Problem solved.

NC Cop on May 21, 2010 at 10:27 PM

The theme of the Republican 2012 campaign HAD BETTER BE “when your government turns on the public”. If they don’t use this (and all the other examples: president encouraging people to “get in their face”, “punch back twice as hard”, etc) then Republicans don’t deserve the opportunity to lead.

This is ridiculous.

ramrants on May 21, 2010 at 10:27 PM

According to Easton, Baer is … a lifelong Democrat

He won’t be for long.

BacaDog on May 21, 2010 at 10:28 PM

A 500-strong SEIU crowd protesting Bank of America’s mortgage and foreclosure policies and practices is one thing when conducted outside the building in which the company is headquartered.

A 500-strong SEIU crowd taking over Baer’s and Easton’s front lawn crosses criminal laws for trespassing, disturbing the peace, and perhaps other charges as well. It’s certainly threatening behavior.

In some parts of the country invading someone else’s private home property opens one up to getting shot at, or even getting shot and hit. Probably not in the People’s Republic of Maryland, but in some parts of the country.

Frankly, if they had been shot, it would have been SEIU’s own fault for endangerment of children.

Shirotayama on May 21, 2010 at 10:29 PM

tgharris on May 21, 2010 at 10:25 PM

I was just pointing out that you could shoot them in Texas and the cops would only bother you long enough to scrape their corpses off your porch, not that they would necessarily get shot in Texas. But a decent ass beating is required at least in any decent state.

Ditto for Florida, thanks to Jeb Bush.
I first heard about this on Glenn Beck yesterday and the way he described it was horrible. The BoA guy was more or less trapped in his car with his younger son while his older son was trapped, alone in the house. He couldn’t leave one son to reach the other. Terrifying.

If only there was a way to bring down SEIU the way ACORN was brought down.

This is frightening and appalling. Shame on everyone that attended. Shame on them for what they did. It is an absolute outrage. I detest unions. There, I said it out loud.

Time to start busting unions.

Just about every major problem we have is due to greedy, lazy belligerent unions – especially “public service” unions – followed by labor unions – trade unions not really in the same category of filth.

forest on May 21, 2010 at 10:34 PM

A trio of officers who belatedly answered our calls confessed a fear that arrests might “incite” these trespassers.

They need to watch some old Adam-12 episodes or something, then. It’s called “calling for backup”.

Uh. They got a police escort from DC metro.

How many police around the county are unionized? You know. Like the SEIU.

How many cops in California retire at 55 with full pension?

Ugly questions vs. reality.

BowHuntingTexas on May 21, 2010 at 10:34 PM

Azkag, isn’t SEIU a “labor union” in name only?
To me they give all appearances of a “rent-a-mob” that exists only for polical purposes, and not as a means of organizing workers to obtain better working conditions.

Shirotayama on May 21, 2010 at 10:35 PM

A trio of officers who belatedly answered our calls confessed a fear that arrests might “incite” these trespassers.

Then bring enough cops to handle an incited crowd. They just didn’t care to come to the aid of a bank exec.

Could Baer press charges? There are enough photos and video that a lot of these trespassers could easily be identified.

holygoat on May 21, 2010 at 10:35 PM

Sorry.

I would be surprised if he DID change parties. Liberalism is a religion that is closely held and it will take more than this to get him to change his views. I’m sure he will write this off as a “few uniformed people”.

I have a four legged pack which would have made short work of even this many aholes, and the ‘No Trespassing’ signs as required by law to make their reaction to intruders legal.

If that didn’t work, I know a posse of very large, mean looking, bike riding men who would have shown up and…uh…”conversed” with the crowd.

Bishop on May 21, 2010 at 10:36 PM

That is beyond disgusting.

Can Baer sue or strike back at all? His son must have been terrified. I would have been.

gophergirl on May 21, 2010 at 10:36 PM

What’s this a 48 hour old story?

AYNBLAND on May 21, 2010 at 10:22 PM

Uh, try five days. I sent a link about this to Ed and AP earlier in the week and others were writing about it.

Anyway, this story is repulsive and shocking on so many levels. How could they go to a private citizen’s house and NOT be arrested for trespassing? I don’t like suing and litigation, but this might be one incident worthy of it. These thugs should’ve been arrested. What is wrong with them? And what is wrong with the freakin’ police that they wouldn’t arrest them?!?

conservative pilgrim on May 21, 2010 at 10:37 PM

Where I live, someone would have been shot. SEIU evidently knows that weenies live in Washington, D.C. suburbs. Come to the midwest, a$$holes! Where were the cops? Oh, I know–they didn’t want to “incite violence”–what utter crap. Shame. All I can say is, the police had better get a handle on this nonsense, or there is going to be real hell to pay one of these days. We are not going to sit by and watch these SEIU mobs have their way.

labwriter on May 21, 2010 at 10:38 PM

Maybe one of you smarty lawyers on here can answer this question: Can you pass a law that makes it illegal to protest at someone’s private home? I know the nutcases that protest soldier funerals just won their case at the Supreme Court, but they were protesting on public property. So doesn’t that make a difference?

ramrants on May 21, 2010 at 10:38 PM

LIberals terrorize young boy, home alone, to get news footage; police provide protection for crowd.

That is the headline.

Does anyone not understand what the purpose of unions has become today?

Muslims terrorize the world; unions terrorize whoever they feel like.

BobMbx on May 21, 2010 at 10:38 PM

Shirotayama, I couldn’t agree more. The real shame is the millions of dollars they collect to carry out these terror tactics and buy their Democrat lackeys. Money that is collected by force from their hard working members under the guise of helping them. Disgrace disgrace disgrace.

azkag on May 21, 2010 at 10:38 PM

In addition, you threaten my family, my kids, all bets are off and by off I mean OFF.

BowHuntingTexas on May 21, 2010 at 10:39 PM

Well people, it’s up to us to take back this country. We can’t rely on a few political party leaders in Washington who themselves don’t have the moral courage to even stand on principle.

This is how it will play out. We do all the hard work and reclaim this country and the party establishment will take the credit. Think I’m kidding?

b1jetmech on May 21, 2010 at 10:39 PM

The BoA guy was more or less trapped in his car with his younger son while his older son was trapped, alone in the house.

OMG, that makes it even worse. Horrible. I can’t stand seeing that happen to kids. If i had been the neighbor, I’d have a hard time resisting committing violence.

If only he was an abortion doctor then the police would have kept the mob further away from the house.

Also, loud lady in second video – don’t sign up for a loan you cannot afford. Pretty simple.

The guest on the second clip is a bit batty. She had to keep going back to the fact that one person supposedly on the right did something bad. She really did not care what happened in this story. That was quite clear.

CWforFreedom on May 21, 2010 at 10:40 PM

Labwriter, if you hear “Maryland” you might as well be hearing “Massachussetts” or “New York City” or any of the major cities on the Left Coast. Same mindset.

Are the police in your town unionized like SEIU? They got a police escort from DC metro police.

BowHuntingTexas on May 21, 2010 at 10:42 PM

Maybe one of you smarty lawyers on here can answer this question: Can you pass a law that makes it illegal to protest at someone’s private home?

The law already exists. It’s called trespassing. In this case, the police were a bunch of cowards (or card-carrying union brothers).

Think about that. What happens when the union thugs light someone’s house on fire? Will the union-brother firefighters put it out?

Anyone want to be the one to find out?

When basic government services become controlled by the unions, communism isn’t very away.

BobMbx on May 21, 2010 at 10:42 PM

Yeah and those DC Metro police were OUT OF THEIR LEGAL JURISDICTION once they crossed the borderline into Maryland. And Rockville is far enough above that line that those cops could NOT POSSIBLY have been lost.

Texas is the most pro-property rights states in the Union. Most other states don’t have the same property rights laws as they do in Texas. But this is why this nonsense doesn’t happen in Texas. While we’re at it….lets notice how often this happens in the south…you know, where those crazy gun loving rednecks live.

If they showed up at my place like that and the police refused to remove them from my private property I’d say ok, I’m getting my gun and shooting them. If you refuse to protect me then I have the constitutional right to protect myself and my family. The man’s son was in fear and would have been justified to protect himself. What in the world is going on here when 500 thugs can show up to someones house and terroize them and the police refuse to do anything about it.

Heads should roll.

As a recovering Lib myself, I think it is possible for “drones” to wake up. I think everyone (that is capable of rational thought) can have their “a-ha” moment where they see that the Progressive philosophy simply does not work in reality.

visions on May 21, 2010 at 10:48 PM

And that’s the thing. Something smells BAD. DC Metro Police are NOT supposed to be accompanying a union protest all the way up to Rockville. Rockville’s gotta be a good five to seven miles UP the Pike (i.e, Route 355, Wisconsin Avenue) PAST the District of Columbia borderline with Maryland.

The APPROPRIATE thing to do would be to radio Montgomery County, Maryland Police to take over jurisdiction once SEIU groupies crossed into Maryland, and then turn around and head back into DC.

Something is VERY rotten in “Denmark”.

Shirotayama on May 21, 2010 at 10:48 PM

You know, this is the same as the recent articles posted here have suggested about the failure of the west to respond to intimidation of free speech for fear of offending Muslims, and PC’ism in general. If we do not stand now and resist these thuggish tactics, they will continue to become more and more emboldened, until someone really does get hurt. This is f-ing serious.

Firefly_76 on May 21, 2010 at 10:48 PM

Hey, Police, do your dam# job. If those people were on his porch or his yard, they should have been arrested for trespassing.

Kissmygrits on May 21, 2010 at 10:49 PM

Show up on my property and refuse to leave? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? My first thought is to turn the garden hose on them (After I call 911)…with my glock on my hip…(it’s not brandishing if you are on your own property.) If they want to stay on the property soaking wet I would blast my stereo through the windows to obstruct their cackling.

My message to big mouth with the mega phone: pay your mortgage. Bank of America doesn’t owe you anything. YOU owe them.

LEBA on May 21, 2010 at 10:49 PM

Reminds me of 1774 or 75. Now would you call the SEIU the Sons of Liberty or The Committee for Safety?

BL@KBIRD on May 21, 2010 at 10:50 PM

Wait a minute, wasn’t it all over the news for days when some tea partiers placed a coffin on a sidewalk near a congressman’s home to protest healthcare?

And not a peep in the MFM, when 500 thugs are actually on the property of a private citizen scaring a minor inside? This is ridiculous.

Firefly_76 on May 21, 2010 at 10:51 PM

boomer on May 21, 2010 at 10:47 PM

And that is that. 500 people are pounding around this guy’s house, trespassing, damaging his property, threatening his family, and the cops stand by because they’re scared to intervene? Say what? Why do the cops exist if they aren’t willing to do their jobs?

If this incident doesn’t send Americans to the gun stores, nothing will.

Bishop on May 21, 2010 at 10:52 PM

Baer’s teenage son Jack — alone in the house

The DC police (out of the verisdiction) are unionized; the Maryland police are unionized; and the SEIU people are all unionized.

Who are the police gonna back?

BowHuntingTexas on May 21, 2010 at 10:53 PM

What a bunch of idiots in the second video. “That ain’t right.” I have a feeling the lady with the bullhorn left out A LOT of details about the status of her mortgage payments, debt, credit rating, etc. The creditors call when you don’t pay your bills, but in the eyes of these thugs, “That ain’t right!”

This is the community organizing way. They are really pushing us to a civil war of some sorts.

According to the OP, they were shitting their pants. I don’t see why being in an union means you have to carry water for every other union on the planet. Unions, like corporations often have conflicting interests. I can’t imagine cops anywhere are happy that someone is causing more work for them just because they’re both in unions.

To quote Beck, this isn’t going to end well.

I say that all the time. Didn’t realize Beck does too. But any sane American looks at this and what’s been going on and knows it is not going to end well unless there’s some sort of intervening miracle.

This is why I hate unions, and I say that as a brother to blue-collar union members, though my siblings would NEVER do something like this.

Human trash SEIU members standing on the front porch of a private home acting as if they own the place, and because of what, their anger at not getting paid $50/hour to wash dishes?

This is the kind of thing that is going to result in someone getting injured or killed. No “journalist” will ever ask BHO what he thinks of his SEIU brothers’ actions.

Millions of Tea Party protesters gather across the country and celebrate American ideals without incident. But you get a couple hundred of these unionized Obamagoons together, and children of bank execs are fair game for whatever they have in mind. If they’re trying to incite a violent reaction, they should keep this crap up. Eventually, they’ll get what they want (minus the political leverage they think will come with it).

One word: Rocksalt.
