Mayor Michael Bloomberg cursed out the chief executive officer of a taxi company who won a court case against the city and pledged a post-mayoral revenge against the entire industry, the CEO and one witness said.
[I will] destroy your [expletive] industry, Mr. Bloomberg said to Taxi Club Management CEO Gene Freidman, The New York Post reported.
He made the comments during last Thursdays game at Madison Square Garden during an impromptu meet at the 1879 Club, a witness told The Post.
Mr. Friedman subsequently confirmed the exchange to The Post and added that Mr. Bloomberg also said that come January when his mayoral term wraps he would destroy all you [expletive] guys.
It was like Gene had kidnapped his child, the witness told The Post. He used the f-word twice.

Classic RAT outburst.
The court case centered on the mayors attempt to replace the citys cab fleet with hybrid vehicles a plan called the Taxi of Tomorrow. The judge ruled that the mayor couldnt order the fleet change because it violated city code.
Bloomberg is obviously a “man of the people.”
That little outburst of his may also be illegal since he is still mayor and is voicing an ‘official’ threat. I think that’s a big no no.
This is another out of control state tyrant who thinks he owns the state.
I wonder what Candidate Weiner’s position is on this crucial issue?
Bingo! The cabbie’s should hire a good litigation specialist and take him to court.

Who would dare prosecute him in the cesspool of New York City?

What a choice NY has for its next mayor.
A perv and a lesbian.
Freidman wondered how the mayor planned to destroy his industry. I dont know how hell destroy me, whether hell start a black-car service that will take people for free, he said. Perhaps hell put $10 million of his own money to lobby against the taxi industry that is pretty powerful.
Mr Freidman should run for Mayor.
This crackpot belongs in a rubber room.
Deprivation of civil rights under color of authority is no doubt both a state and federal crime. Unfortunately, he lives in New Yawk, and in the country, currently aspiring to third-world shithole status, formerly known as the United States of America. So I guess you’re right, he’s screwed.
Doodooberg moves to ban smoking to salt to soda to styrofoam to food donations to guns, and now he wants to ban cabbies.
The guy has a megalomania complex.
Who is running vs Weenie?
This calls for an all out taxicab strike in NYC.
Bloomberg is insane and dangerously intolerant of anyone who dares to disagree with him.
Didn’t Bloomberg get caught this week, spying on investment bankers thru those “bloomberg terminals” he rents to everybody?
