SWAT team, state police were positioned near W. Va. church 04 Jan 2006 In a stunning and heartbreaking reversal, family members were told early Wednesday that 12 of 13 trapped coal miners were dead – three hours after they began celebrating news that they were alive… International Coal Group Chief Executive Officer Ben Hatfield blamed the wrong information on a “miscommunication.” …”There was no apology. There was no nothing. It was immediately out the door,” said Nick Helms, son of miner Terry Helms. Chaos broke out in the church and a fight started. About a dozen state troopers and a SWAT team were positioned along the road near the church because police were concerned about violence. Witnesses said one man had to be wrestled to the ground when he lunged for mining officials. [The ‘violence’ is the violence that is perpetrated on workers in the U.S. (and all over the world) every day, due to the Bush regime’s expansion of predatory capitalism.]
