POV questionable[edit]

Hired goons? That is pretty biased. Rebelyell2006 (talk) 02:48, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

Agreed. I've changed "hired goons" to "Baldwin-Felts detectives" as well as clarified that the minors involved were local. I'll also note that any Wikipedia article on the unionization movement in WV will like be biased towards the union and against the coal operators. That is in part because the sources that will be used are biased towards the union. When I was in school, our 8th grade WV history book painting the Baldwin-Felts and the company owners as villains. —Farix (t | c) 00:20, 5 February 2010 (UTC)
No, those men were murdered, it is recorded as a historical fact. However, this article ia a POV and will be edited when I get to it. There are unbiased sources.....Ever try to look at the Mingo County Courthouse archives????Coal town guy (talk) 14:27, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
