Strange situation outside of the Southern District NY Bankruptcy Court yesterday as the unions send hundreds of American Airlines employees to protest against American’s planned cutbacks.
I’m all for Armies of Davids and Davidettes raising their voices in protest but – regardless of the actual issue – I’ve always found it unsavory to hold rallies outside a court of law. Once an issue has made it to court shouldn’t it be heard in an unbiased manner? And what do the protesters hope to accomplish anyway? Isn’t their presence there an indication that they think that there is at least a chance that they can influence justice with their numbers and voices? I’d love to hear the InstaPundit’s take on this!
