FERGUSON, Mo. –While the facts of the Ferguson, Missouri police shooting of an unarmed man are in still question and riots are still going on, liberals and conservatives alike have been opining on the events.

aflciobossWhile the current AFL-CIO boss, Richard Trumka, released a relatively bengign statement last week, former AFL-CIO Organizing Director Stewart Acuff, who has always been loud-spoken, took to Twitter this week to voice his disdain for the police.

Acuff, while he was AFL-CIO Organizing Director, helped run the unions’ “Close the NLRB for Rennovations” campaign during the latter years of the Bush Administration.

UPDATE: After a post on LaborUnionReport on Tuesday, as well as a follow-on article at the Free Beacon, Acuff removed his offensive tweet and offered these apologetic comments on his Twitter feed.

Despite the tweets offering apology to the offended, Acuff did leave several tweets on his Twitter feed that makes one wonder whether he is sincere about his apologies.

One of them, in referencing the Ferguson shooting (and despite the fact that Acuff mentioned the “ongoing investigation” (above), uses the term “official murder.”
