Container said:60 years ago if you were in a labour dispute you could expect for someone to die. And the police would be at fault. The police were used to break the backs of labour disputes. We dont do that anymore.
"The Emergency Task Force was created in 1965. Officers worked out of a downtown station and their primary function was to deal with strike situations.":
I got to see Metro Police in action many times over the years and was always impressed by their professionalism. They got the job done, even though it was not always pretty. The best word I can think of was "effective".
It is pretty shocking to recall that we had four Metro officers shot to death in less than one year in the early 1970's.
