1919 Boston Police Strike
On September 9, 1919, 1117 Boston policemen all went on strike due to labor issues with the city. For the next two days there was violence and looting in the city, as criminal elements took advantage of the lack of police coverage. Governor Coolidge is famous for saying, "there is no right to strike against the public safety by anybody, anywhere, any time."

By December 13th, the government had hired enough new policemen to make up for those that had striked, and the policemen had to try to find new jobs.
