    Default Again the media blames the Teamsters

    $180K found in backpack of mysterious teamster who died on New York train platform | NJ.com

    NEW YORK — The mystery began with a heart attack, a man with a past, and a bag of money that federal authorities now want to keep.

    In August, a retired Teamster from Boston stepped off an Amtrak train in New York City and collapsed on the platform at Pennsylvania Station. As medics tried to revive him, police searched his backpack for identification. Inside, they found the stuff that "Law & Order" episodes are made of: $179,980 in cash, bundled with rubber bands and tucked inside two plastic bags.



    Coyman's old union, International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 25, was notorious for its organized crime ties in the 1990s. Years ago, Coyman's name was mentioned in news articles about allegations that union officials were shaking down Hollywood film crews and forcing producers to give cushy film set jobs to gangland hoodlums. He'd worked as a driver on some of the films in question.
    As usual they try and blame it on the Teamsters union. This 75 year old guy was retired and working as a courier for a company that apparantly doesn't have any ties with the union. And the best they can come up with are his name was mentioned in allegations back in the 1990s

    Sounds to me like he was just a plain old criminal and it had nothing to do with him being a Teamster.

    The news will spin and lie anything to make a story sell. Example, Zimmerman and NBC.

    This is getting scarey. I'm ageeing with you again. This whole Zimmerman fiasco is a disgrace. Especially since the Martin family and entourage is crisscrossing the country continuing to stir up racial hate. They demanded an arrest and got it. They should go home to grieve and let the courts settle the issue.

    I would still like to know who is financing their quest for justice for Trayvon? I would also like to know if his farher's girlfriend actually lived in Zimmerman's private gated community? Or was he tresspassing and profiled as just one of many hoodie wearing hoodlums that had committed crimes in the neighborhood?

    Maybe we need more Independent News outlets?

    Speaking of Zimmerman a friend of mine(yes, i have friends) sent me a E-mail about a white couple in i think Tennessee that were raped, tortured and murder by 4 black men and 1 black women, but we haven't heard a thing about it up here in Mass, (no big media attention) sounds like a hate crime to me, fair is fair? where are you Rev. Al? J.J.

    I think we need to get this thread back on track here. It is about the media blaming the teamsters and were headed onto something that this thread does not pertain too.

    Sorry about that, I'm as guilty of straying off topic as anyone. Maybe you can move those couple of posts over to the Zimmerman thread.

    Here is a link to the case the Sayheykid is referring to. It happened 5 years ago and they are getting new trials because the judge was drunk.

    I don't think that we will as of now move these but I do want to thank you 2631 for stepping up and admitting to maybe straying a little. Now if more people would step up to the plate we mods wouldn't have alot to do.
