Scene of the Crime: Exclusive Video Goes In-Depth on Lansing Mob Violence
American For Prosperity staffers Scott and Annie return to the scene of the crime—the location on the lawn of the Michigan State Capitol building where an angry mob of union demonstrators brought down the AFP tent during demonstrations against right to work legislation.
The video released by Breitbart News yesterday quickly brought exposure to the crime, and since then, dozens of other videos of the attack have been put up on YouTube.
In this walk-through recorded Wednesday, December 12, new details emerge. There's a description of how the events unfolded yesterday and details about the racially-tinged attack by union supporters against well-known local hot dog vendor Clint Tarver. The largely white crowd shouted racial epithets at the African-American businessman and destroyed his equipment. There's also discussion of a 911 call made to the police, located literally across the street.
Americans For Prosperity set up a tent to promote civil discourse about the right-to-work issue. For that sin, they were attacked, threatened, and had their property demolished.
