Anti-WalMart union group makes children cry

This is sick! From NWA Online:
A demonstration at a Wal-Mart store in North Lauderdale, Fla., reportedly led to shoving matches, the arrests of two protesters and counterclaims over who was to blame.

Elizabeth Calzadilla-Fiallo, a spokeswoman for the Broward County Sheriff's Office, said Friday that two demonstrators, a male and female, were arrested on misdemeanor charges of battery and obstruction of justice after they allegedly got into a shoving match with two assistant managers at the Wal-Mart store in North Lauderdale.

Calzadilla-Fiallo said her deputies were told that the demonstrators went into the store dressed as elves and handed out empty packages to children inside the store. The shoving match reportedly ensued when one of the assistant managers told the demonstrators they had to leave, she said.
Reports say that the kids cried when they opened the empty boxes. Nothing says "We're fighting for families!" quite like making children cry for your cause!

But don't worry...Zogby can always try and push-poll his clients (the anti-WM union) out of this mess. Considering his last poll that 56% of Americans hate Wal-Mart is about as believable as "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" and "I didn't inhale", I wouldn't be optimistic if I were Zogby...or Wake Up Wal-Mart!

I wonder: would John Kerry consider these union workers who made the children cry as "terrorizing children"? Or is that an expression he has reserved solely for our own soldiers?
