Mike Bloomberg Releases Statement, To Deploy Critical Response Vehicles And Additional Police

Tyler Durden's picture


Mike Bloomberg speaks:

As law enforcement authorities investigate today’s explosions in Boston, I ask all New Yorkers to keep the victims and their families in your thoughts and prayers.

I have spoken with Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, and the NYPD has stepped up security at strategic locations and critical infrastructure, including our subways.

Some of the security steps we are taking may be noticeable, including deployment of Critical Response Vehicles and additional police personnel, and others will not be.

We have 1,000 members of the NYPD assigned to counter-terrorism duties, and they – along with the entire NYPD and the investments we have made in counter-terrorism infrastructure – are being fully mobilized to protect our city.

“We’re going to have more visibility and less privacy. I don’t see how you stop that,” admitted New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in a surprisingly candid interview about the future of the surveillance state in the Big Apple.

Come on Bloomberg:  If Gitmo was closed as promised 5 years ago, none of this would have happened.  Sarc off!!!!!!

If Bloomberg had his way this kind of thing would not happen. We would have the mobile DHS X-Ray vans driving up and down the street and perhaps detect the right wing extremist that did this before it happened. We would also have more officers on street corners doing "proper" random pat downs and bag searches.

I just hope that this finally wakes up our leaders, and we increase funding and law enforcement scope for the DHS. And "Hello!", let's get those X-ray vans deployed and quick response MRAP mounted tactical teams patrolling the streets. We have a lot of unemployed college age youth. Let's get them trained up now. Proper police coverage using proper random screening and spot searches of pedestrians would have stopped this. Wake up people!

Isn't NYC a "bomb free" zone?  They should have to worry.  Unless they are going for running free zone or citizen free zone.  Who knows how far they will go.

If the perps are Black, Holder won't prosecute. If they are Muslim, we will spend years understanding their rage before any trial(ie Gitmo, Maj. Hasan).  We must hope they are white and belong to a militia or, even better, some religion.

Yeah, there's no black people in prison at all. Eric Holder only prosecutes white bankers.

The Gitmo trials are being held up because a majority of them are not terrorists and have been cleared for release by Bush and Obama.

Yep, when you have globalists with no loyalty to any country and you have those people orchestrating military actions against people around the world and you allow such globalist and banksters into your country they will attack just as if you were Libiyans or Somalians or any country that doesn't go along with their plans. Doesn't take much to realize that if a country wants to really be secure it must kick the globalists out of the country.

First, of course I feel for those killed or injured today. That goes without saying,

However, In a completely unconnected meeting months and months ago, "The pictures of the Urban Assualt vehicles are starting to show up on web sites. We have have a way of getting out ahead of this uncontrolled PR campaign. How can we get Our message out in front? "

"Well, we could use a Domestic Terrorist attack to show a Positive and reasuring use of the vehicles in Safegaurding the publc. "
"Work up the plans, if an event.... comes up, we have to be ready"

Completely fictional dialogue....
