AYFKM? SEIU Escorted To Baer’s Home By Police

May 21, 2010 by

In yesterday’s Glenn Beck posting about the SEIU protest outside BofA employee Gregory Baer’s home, I asked these questions:

Now where did we leave those frakkin’ paramilitary SWAT Teams?  Which police dept. are Greg Baer and his neighbors paying for?

Today, we find out that Metropolitcan DC police escorted SEIU to Baer’s home.

D.C. Metro Police Escorted SEIU Protesters to Bank Of America Executive’s Home

The family of Greg Baer, Bank of America executive, is located in a jurisdiction protected by the Montgomery County Police Department (MCPD), which responded promptly to a disturbance call from his neighborhood last weekend.

According to Corporal Dan Friz, an MCPD spokesperson in Rockville, Maryland, the department received a disturbance call from one of Baer’s neighbors at 4:10 pm last Sunday. Four MCPD units arrived at Baer’s Greenville Rd. address at 4:15 pm.  At least two Metropolitan Police Department units from the nearby District of Columbia were already at the scene when they arrived.

Why? Because police cars attached to the Washington MPD’s Civil Disturbance Unit had escorted theSEIU protesters’ buses to Baer’s home. Such cross-jurisdictional escort activity is not uncommon for both departments according to Friz and Metro Police Department spokesperson Officer Eric Frost.  Still, the District police did not inform their colleagues of what was about to happen in one of their Maryland neighborhoods.

The Maryland officers reported there were approximately 500 protesters on and near the front lawn of Baer’s house.  Montgomery County was not given a “heads-up” concerning the planned protest.  Although a protest permit is technically required in Montgomery County, in practice no citation is issued if the protestors disperse when requested to do so by the owner of the private property they occupy.

The primary role of the Washington cops in this event was to protect the protesters. The D.C. officers had no authority to act to disperse the protesters even had the homeowner been present and asked them to vacate the private property. The event ended as a “dash one”– no arrests, no citations – according to Friz.  The Montgomery County units left the scene at 5:29 pm.

Go over and read the rest.  My own personal code of ethics does not allow me to write what I am thinking right now.

    This could happen to any of us! Why was he targeted in particular, anyway. He is only an employee of a bank. Am I wrong or have the unions virtually gotten everything they want from the fraud usurper? Watch out, America, this is only the beginning. Let’s get him out of our House immediately! This tyranny has gone on too long now.

    i hope that this news story is not the end of this…..if it was me, i would be looking for an attorney to sue seiu, the officers that escorted the thugs to my home and the officers that refused to intervene.

    (of course if it was me,they would not have stayed to trespass on my property for long…..)
