Union Protest Killed New Born Child

Published by at 11:24 am under All General Discussions

Someone needs to go to jail. Here are some basic dots to connect.

First, some NYC unions used the blizzard as a way to protest budget cuts:

Selfish Sanitation Department bosses from the snow-slammed outer boroughs ordered their drivers to snarl the blizzard cleanup to protest budget cuts — a disastrous move that turned streets into a minefield for emergency-services vehicles, The Post has learned.

Miles of roads stretching from as north as Whitestone, Queens, to the south shore of Staten Island still remained treacherously unplowed last night because of the shameless job action, several sources and a city lawmaker said, which was over a raft of demotions, attrition and budget cuts.

Which led to the death of a new born child:

A blizzard baby delivered inside the lobby of a snowbound Brooklyn building died after an emergency call of a woman in labor brought no help for nine excruciating hours.

The baby’s mother, a 22-year-old college senior, was recovering Tuesday night at Interfaith Medical Center, where her newborn was pronounced dead at 6:34 p.m. on Monday. That was 10 hours after the first 911 call from the bloody vestibule on Brooklyn Ave. in Crown Heights.

That is called negligent homicide or manslaughter – and every union idiot who participated in that blizzard protest should be charged and locked away for as long as possible.

Update: Hot Air has the story – but what about the death of an innocent child?

Update: A consensus is building

    This is what you get with weak leadership.
    Very, very sad. And so unnecessary.
    How this mother must feel is beyond reality to me.

    So, talk about selfishness and greediness…who are the culprits now?

    This is why having public sector unions is problematic. Unless you can have them put guarantees in their contracts for emergencies, they can collectively decide to do what they want. All the public officials can do is fire them. Hey, wait a minute…
