We Are Good Citizens

Three workers were arrested last week for blocking trucks hauling away the plant's equipment. 

Six more protesters were arrested at the Bain-owned Sensata plant in Freeport, Ill. for sitting in and demanding a full severance package for the 170 workers who will lose their jobs as early as Friday when the plant's operations are outsourced to China. The protesters, some of whom said they were "scared to death" being in a police car, said they'd do it again. Good folks. In video of the arrests, the police arrive around the 20-minute mark.
