I have a Question Who is paying for the six Police officers that were on Duty today at the Xpdex or xpedex strike sight. I really hope its the Teamsters. because it is not fair that the residents of Wilmington have their taxes impacted . since grownup on both sides cant act like ADULTS. To the strikers you may have the freedom to drop F bombs like they are going out of style but remember their are children in a number of buisness across the street and they do not have to be exposed to your inability to articulate the spoken word.

I am pretty sure Wilmington tax payers aren't paying for the detail cops, it's the Teamsters

I was told that the company is picking up the tab.

I'll see what I can find out, Ed. I'm following up on the picket line request today, so when I hopefully speak with police I will ask them that question.
