Bloomberg Was Concerned About OWS Health

From the New York Post:

Inside story of why Mike finally had to act

November 16, 2011

Mayor Bloomberg finally decided to wipe Zuccotti Park clean after learning about a rancid outbreak of scabies, lice and lung ailments among protesters — and most importantly because his reputation was taking a beating, insiders told The Post.

Lousy hippies.

“He knew he was being perceived as being very weak,” said a source who was briefed on Bloomberg’s decision to finally break down the Occupy Wall Street encampment.

Mr. Bloomberg values his reputation over the health of the public? Then why did he outlaw trans fats? Why is he trying to outlaw salt?

Hizzoner hit his breaking point after he was contrasted to the liberal mayors of Oakland and Denver — who quickly cracked down on OWS protesters — and critics compared his inaction to the failings of former Mayor David Dinkins.

And it was about to get worse.

Bloomberg would have looked even weaker if he didn’t thwart an OWS threat to storm the New York Stock Exchange, a massive action that was planned for tomorrow, multiple sources said.

“His Wall Street friends wouldn’t stand for it,” one source said.

The OWS eviction was actually planned for weeks — but it was only on Sunday that Bloomberg finally decided to pull the trigger, during a secret meeting at Gracie Mansion with Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, Fire Commission Sal Cassano, Deputy Mayor Cas Holloway and Corporation Counsel Michael Cardozo, sources said.

The decision was kept under wraps for more than 24 hours — even the cops called to assemble Monday night between the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges were initially told it was for a drill.

Raiding the Zuccotti camp under the cover of night was done so cops would encounter “the smallest number of people in the park,” Kelly said yesterday.

Hilarious. What were they afraid of? Have they ever seen those protesters?

An administration source insisted that Bloomberg gave the go-ahead to roust the protesters because of “an accumulation of things” — including concerns that the park became a firetrap and that protesters were planning to build wooden structures to prepare for winter.

But sources familiar with Bloomberg’s decision said he also was concerned with public health.

Scabies and lice recently cropped up among those sleeping in Zuccotti Park — and there were concerns that the infestations would grow even worse, said a law-enforcement source.

There also was an increasing numbers of lung ailments caused by constant smoking and the chilly nighttime temperatures, medics who worked on the scene confirmed

It was probably the smoking that broke the camels back.

Lice, violence, and even rape are one thing. But smoking will not be tolerated!

    Night was the best time to do this for multiple reasons. Night is a lousy time for cell cameras, and the news media most probably won’t be there, so no Live Breaking News flashes on network TV, and very little youtube video of merit. Plus most of the OWS idiots were probably out partying, or sleeping at home. By the time they rolled out of bed at noon, the cleanup crews were in full swing and all their garbage was headed for the dump.

    Fait Accompli
    Nice job Mike. (never thought I’d say that)

      If only the City Of New Dork would give such thoughtful and careful consideration to snow removal or garbage collection on a regular basis.

    Hey, this is great! Imagine the odds of this happening.

    Do you know the park in NYC that the Wall Street protesters are occupying?
    It’s Zuccotti Park. Did you know this park is not owned by the city of New York?
    It is owned by Brookfield Properties. Who was just hired by Brookfield Properties as an attorney?
    Vice President Joe Biden’s son. Who sits on the board of Brookfield Properties?
    Mayor Bloomberg’s live in girlfriend. Now, guess what company just received some of the last of the
    Obama Stimulus $$$$$$$. Thaaaaaaaaaaaat’s right, Brookfield Properties. Isn’t life great in America!

    Tom Hayden……….a director of the properties also!

      Tater…I got the same email the other day. I was tempted to post it here…so I’m glad to see you did.

      Now I, being someone of a doubting nature, particularly in viral emails, I looked it up on snopes, even though I understand the snopes people to be of the left persuasion.

      I found it a bit humorous that snopes said “partially true”, then it attempted to explain away these facts by splitting hairs. Check it out yourself.

      What I got from snopes was that its all true, in spite of them wanting to “qualify” all the facts as being “part” true.

      Typical lefty disinformation.
