De Blasio jaywalks as he preaches road safety [also exceeded speed limit, ignored stop signs]
New York Post ^ | February 21, 2014

Now he’s jaywalking!

Mayor de Blasio and his security detail crossed a Brooklyn street against the light Friday on his way to his morning workout – just a day after his SUV blew through two stop signs and was speeding in Queens.

Exclusive video taken by The Post caught the mayor — dressed in a “Brooklyn” sweatshirt, slacks and sneakers — chatting on his cellphone as he sauntered across 11th Street on 6th Avenue in Park Slope, ignoring the orange hand on the traffic signal that clearly warns pedestrians not to cross.

In January, NYPD precincts launched an aggressive jaywalking ticket blitz that had de Blasio’s support. His Friday morning flouting of traffic safety rules came a day after deBlasio was caught on camera riding shotgun in a speeding SUV.

His mayoral black two-unit convoy was videotaped by a CBS 2 News crew as it blew through two stop signs in Queens and clocked at nearly 60 miles an hour in a 45 mile per hour zone, and 40 -45 mph in a 30 mph zone. They were not using lights or sirens.

I am surprised the media is going after him. DimoKKKRATS are always a juicy target as they know the media is usually on their side and don’t report on them.

Ya, since due Blasio is very liberal, he is held to a different standard. Or normally would be, surprised the media is covering this story.

Laws don’t apply to the ruling elite, just to the peasants.

The NY Post tends to appeal to a more conservative readership.

The police escorts' breaking traffic laws sets a bad example of lawlessness for the entire NYPD and other NYC employees as well.

And, if DeBlasio really wants to enforce jaywalking, he should set an example by pleading guilty himself and writing a personal check for the listed fine to the city government. It might get him some favorable publicity as well.

Jaywalking while talking on a cell phone. Tsk Tsk

Reminds me of that old commercial where the jerk on the phone yells at his employee saying “You’re Fired” and then gets run over by a truck.

Ends up in Hell. I think it was a place that had chocolate but no milk.

It goes without saying that as a liberal abortion loving democrat DeBlasio will end up in Hell so he ought to be careful crossing the street.

Too bad he didn’t do this in Austin. The fat cops would have arrested him.

It's the "New York Post". Not exactly a liberal rag. They always cover these things in New York.

That top image of DeBLAHHsio reminds me of an episode of 1000 ways to die where a girl walking through a parking lot is so preoccupied yakking to her boyfriend on her cell phone she doesn’t notice his truck barreling down on her and gets flattened.

And as far as these idiot politicians who think they’re above the law speeding recklessly through the city, are they looking for another young Gavin Cato to run over, and trigger another riot, OOPS I mean another week of “yutes” venting?

I was walking my dog one evening in our local park.

My dog was as always on the leash.

Suddenly this big brute of a dog came charging after my dog, balking loudly. I managed to keep the two apart.

Then this lady jogger came jogging buy and spoke as if calling for someone. And the dog ran to her.

I ran after them, and loudly was reminding her that our city laws require a dog be on the leash at all times in the public.

Turning and jogging slowly backwards, she looked at me and said: “It’s alright, I am cop.”

You see. Some people when obtaining a position of governmental authority think THEY have risen above the law.

Yeah he jaywalks. Big friggin deal. Like a Lewinski, we should really be going over DiBlassio for being a MARXIST SCUM.

We went after Clinton but are afraid to go after zer0, who is a constitution ignoring marxist criminal. Let him jay walk. Maybe he’ll get run over(one can always hope)
