Bloomberg's Car Stolen, Aide Beaten By Thieves

(AP) NEW YORK A personal employee of Mayor Michael Bloomberg was beaten by thieves who then carjacked the billionaire's car Wednesday morning in New Jersey, authorities said.

The employee was driving the 2001 Lexus in Hackensack, N.J., on an errand for the mayor shortly before 9 a.m. when he was approached by a woman who came to the window to ask for money, police said. As he declined and began to roll up the window, a man got into the passenger seat and punched him in the face.

"They force him out and take off," said Hackensack police Capt. Frank Lomia.

The car was found about two hours later, abandoned on the side of the road in Fair Lawn, N.J. Police were looking for the two suspects.

Bloomberg's employee was not seriously injured and his name was not released. He is one of many staffers who take care of Bloomberg's personal business and his homes, including his townhouse in Manhattan and country house in upstate New York.

Bad things happen when you leave the city.

Well you can't blame the mayor since it happened in Jersey.

Blame his wingnut employer for waging a personal campaign to make sure no one in New York City ever owns a gun... except the criminals, of course.

2001 Lexus

Just a old beater, not worth stripping.

Is a punch in the face really a "beating?" Why didn't he punch back? No mention of any weapons.

"They force him out and take off," said Hackensack police Capt. Frank Lomia.

Good to see that New Jersey has adopted multisyllabic speech as its official language.

I notice even police chiefs act as if the criminals are owed. Liberalism 101.

Oh well.

Apparently English is a second language in Hackensack.

I hope the mayor is able to reach out and help this poor carjacker. I'm sure there's a government program to fit his needs.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg is not he the one who said we did not need to protect ourselves and should not be given the right to do so?

Bad things happen when you let your employee drive your expensive car.

And who's dumb enough to drive around with the passenger door unlocked?

Now way! I thought they take off and fly away but then you could be right. I heard New Jersey was re-writing the SAT tests to give equal rights to the multi- and monosyllabic.

Yeah, one of Bloomberg's gun-free Utopias.
