Now, This Should Break Your Heart

A bunch of lice-infested college kiddies on summer break are sitting behind bars and their parents won't bail them out.

Boo. Freaking. Hoo.
Group says coal protesters unable to make bail
By the Associated Press

Beaver, W.Va. (AP) -- Environmental group Mountain Justice says six people arrested on trespassing charges during a coal mining protest are still jailed.

The group said Sunday the six have been unable to raise $2,000 cash apiece to make bail.

All six were arrested a day earlier at Richmond, Va.-based Massey Energy Co.'s Marfork Coal mining complex in Pettus. Mountain Justice says they were protesting Richmond, Va.-based Massey's plan to blast at the mine. [link]
Actions have consequences, children. You want to save the planet by denying the only jobs those miners have available to them? You'll be doing it from a jail cell, sweetheart. Hopefully, for a long, long time.

Heck, if we're lucky, it'll keep you from going back to that badminton major you're pursuing over at Virginia Tech.

Now that's Mountain Justice.
