Working Class Activists hit with $100,000 Bail

2 posts / 0 new

Two activists were hit with a bail of $100,000 for misdemeanor charges of blockading Massey Energy headquarters, as protesters march outside today’s shareholder meeting. Let's see. Multimillionaire and Massey CEO Don Blakenship goes home to his mansion every night ever since 29 people died in his mine which was repeatedly cited for safety violations, arguably making him guilty of manslaughter - although no charges were ever filed against him - but people who peacefully protest what he and his company did that led to these people's death? Those working-class protesters have to post a bail of $100,000 to get out of jail.

That's a pretty hefty toll charge for walking on a public sidewalk.

Manslaughter fine if you have politicians in your pocket....walking a no no if you carry a sign protesting manslaughter.
