Abuse of Power by NY City Police and Bloomberg's Bizarre Behavior
In today's column, entitled "A Girl's Fear and Loathing,"Bob Herbert describes abusive behavior by a New York City police officer and the refusal of the police commissioner and the mayor to recognize the existence of a problem.
I had been wondering about Mayor Bloomberg's recent bizarre behavior. First, he leaves the Republican Party and becomes an Independent. Then his helpers leak Bloomberg's prospective run as a third party candidate for the Presidency. Then Bloomberg announces that he supports Republican politicians in New York State. What's with Bloomberg?
This latest revelation is really too much. Bloomberg has always expressed great pride and confidence in the New York City Police Department. Now, he is in a state of denial about a police officer who has abused a female high school student. This man wants to be President?
