Skip to comments.Mayor Bloomberg says he will investigate blizzard sabotage, calls it 'an outrage' (Coverup time...)

Mayor Bloomberg will order a probe into allegations that Sanitation Department told drivers to snarl the cleanup effort to protest budget cuts, saying this morning it "would be an outrage" if workers intentionally did not clear streets.

Bastard was probably in on it.
A democRat politician does not get elected to mayor of NYC without union connections.
GQ named this moron their leader of the year.
Bet they’re feeling pretty stupid, especially since their HQ is in NYC.
Elections have consequences!
It’s all about overtime...cheating on the time sheets....
Notice that he says that he doesn’t think it was actually sabotage (he’s already made up his mind) but, he’ll investigate, anyway....
This oughta be good.
At least 2 people in Brooklyn died—a newborn baby and an older woman—because emergency vehicles could not get through unplowed streets.
Any idiot can see it is true.
When I first heard the charges I dismissed them.
When I heard people died, I looked and saw the video of plows parked at 9am with the driver sleeping in the cab.
I can’t come up with another explanation other than they ran out of gas, but they had the engine running with the heat.
He'll have to be dragged kicking and screaming to admit this.
I wonder if they can sue the city.
The mayor, the DA’s and the unions are trying to make this all go away. The fix is in. And the District Attorneys are in on it.
Take out the trash, including yourself.
No way this will be fully and completely investigated.
The State Attorney General and his political minions only investigate political ‘enemies’.
Like for instance Peter Cappuccilli Jr, former NY State Fair director for 10 successful years. His crime was giving his daughters a break on their wedding hall...
...but his more serious and far sinister crime was he donated and supported the wrong party.
How stupid do these folks think we are? JMHO, all will be forgiven to Bloomberg cause its someone else’s fault probably Palins or O’Donnells, just sayin
Bloomie must be slipping - if there was any sabatoge involved in the snow removal process, I thought sure he’d blame it on “those upset about health care reform” or some such thing.
I went to DU and read a thread on this subject. They were all excoriating the OP for furthering “right wing talking points”. Then a 1000+ posts DUer shut them all up. He said Jay Leno had played a clip of a snowplow that went down street after street, crashing into every single parked car on every one. People were screaming at the driver, but he just kept it up, block after block after block. No DUer said a word after that.
NYC Halloran said no chance of them suing the city
Bloomberg’s complicity in union job action that resulted in deaths is criminal. Will anyone be prosecuted, starting at the top where union mischief is condoned? Additionally, this happens in nearly every city in the US.
Was there ever a time when Rudy ran the show were there any problems like this?
If I’m wrong please tell me.
BTW this does not mean I want him to be POTUS
From the NY Times comments:
Among the things I witnessed that make me feel this way:
* Sanitation trucks running back and forth along already-plowed main streets plows up for hours, while secondary streets remained unplowed.
* Bus routes plowed along main streets, but the streets that they need to use to turn around remaining unplowed, resulting in four buses stuck in the snow for three days, a few blocks away from my home.
* A fully loaded salt spreader tooling back and forth along the main drag in my neighborhood for at least four hours with the spreader turned off.
And the powder keg's fuse draws closer.
If some union thugs wind up shot by relatives, I'll donate to the relative's defense fund.
Who can say? The DUer who mentioned it said it was clearly an act of vengeance against the citizenry for the union cutbacks. Nobody disagreed, but again, who can know why a snow plow driver would damage and destroy so many cars? One would hope the city will pay the repairs, which would mean even less $ for the unions. Not that the genius thugs are all that good at thinking ahead.
The finger pointing begins — Bush is at fault.
Rudy ran the snow cleanup like a military operation. This nonsense never happened while he was mayor.
Remember the sanitation workers are Teamsters.They can destroy all Bloomberg’s ambitions.
This isn’t going to end well for Bloomberg OR the unions.
The fix is in. I guarantee you that the Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes will NOT investigate the death of the newborn baby. He is in bed with the unions, just like all of the other NYC politicians. The coverup is starting.
Isn’t Bloomberg in one of his pseudo Republican iterations? Maybe the great Holder will investigate. [If any of the plow drivers were white and any of the damaged individuals were black, it could pique his interest.]
Or should I put down the pipe and step away from the bong?
If only we could start getting the Union thug order-givers on Trial for sabotage, fraud, etc., and then seat a Jury without the usual hand-picked Union brothers, social misfits, and Life’s Lotto mentality, we could jail these bastards and save the Taxpayer millions.
The dead newborn baby was most likely black. That’s why there’s an embargo on the details of the story by the media. Where’s Reverend Al, Jesse Jackson and Barack The Kenyan on this Brooklyn tragedy?
Boomberg doesn’t give a rat’s rear end about any borough except Manhattan. Maybe he should start trying to be a mayor of the city instead of banning smoking, trying to eliminate the second amendment, banning salt, banning vehicle traffic in Manhattan, raising tolls astronomically and raising taxes on cigarettes so that a pack of butts cost more than 10 bucks. The people of the city voted him in and deserve getting screwed.
I think we just found out who is responsible.
When will someone investigate him and the money he will make from his mideast masters.
The fox is investigating what happened to the chickens.
If it can be proven that black communities received disproportionately inferior service, I honestly wouldn’t rule out a federal investigation. The odds are not high, but certainly it’s possible. [Unless Holder is too busy dodging GOP subpoenas to do his usual hack job.]
Holder will throw the black mother in Brooklyn and her dead newborn baby under the bus. He will do what the union thugs tell him to do.
It is within the realm of possibility that the people of NY might finally have had enough. If the backlash over this becomes loud and protracted enough, the cover-up could fail.
This degree of vicious insolence ought to be answered with manslaughter charges.
Round ‘em the f-— up!
Skip suing the city, SUE THE UNION! They probably have more money anyways!
Funny that the only vehicles they seem to have available to attach plows to are garbage trucks. The city has no road maintenance dump trucks built for (among other things) plowing?
Yes, and the media will follow suit - including the Post, I’m afraid. Everyone for some reason is scared to death of Bloomberg and if he says the fix is in - the fix is in.
We’ve got to stop electing billionaires who only take $1 a year. They may not steal money from taxpayers but they are highly corrupt in their own way. I’ve been down on Bloomberg since he outlawed smoking; I’ve never been proven wrong on how bad this guy is.
Geez, who’s Bloomberg’s advisor on natural disasters, Ray Nagin?
