    Bloomberg betrays police and other 9/11 first reponders

    Just business as usual for Bloomberg, so we shouldn't be surprised.

    First responders excluded from 9/11 ceremony

    The first responders are not invited to this year's September 11 memorial ceremony at ground zero, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's office confirmed Monday.

    It's a painful insult for many of the approximately 3,000 men and women who risked their lives, limbs and lungs on that monumental day, puncturing another hole in a still searing wound.

    In a statement, Bloomberg spokesman Andrew Brent said the commemoration ceremony is for the victims' families.

    "While we are again focused on accommodating victims' family members, given the space constraints, we're working to find ways to recognize and honor first responders, and other groups, at different places and times," Brent said.

    What you don't think the police and fireman aren't the victims families? They lost some of their brothers and sisters there.

    They make plenty of room for people on New Years Eve, but now they mayor's office says they don't have room? Guaranteed NYPD would make it work.

    I heard on the news last night they will have something for the first responders the following week. Sounds like a bandaid to avoid a media doo-doo storm. Yeah, I'm sure they all appreciate that.

    I don't think Bloomberg belongs there either.

    this has evolved into a "foo-foo feel good" event for politicos to be seen at, it has little to do with actually honoring those who were murdered that day

    Would you not count the first responders that were there as "victims"? They lost friends and families, they lost lung matter, blood, sweat, tears, etc... Bloomberg can slurp my hind-quarters.

    Yes, I agree. I'm sure Bloomberg has great respect for the first responders, as do we all. I don't understand how this kind of stuff ever gets started.

    So um.. lets rewind this... lets say 9/11 happened.. then.. no one helped.... then what? How many victims would you have then? How many more families would have to be invited? Complete BS if you ask me.

    I'd say a man or woman willing to risk their life to protect or save you would be considered defacto family...Bloomberg is just another over-stuffed millionaire playing a politician's game, & trying to hide the fact that he's really a scumbag through-&-through.

    I think all the Politicians and invited guests that didn't lose any family members get told sorry you get no soup today,as in if it's only for family members of victims anybody else would be pure hypocrisy

    as someone who was close to many people who were involved in that day, I think that many families of the victims would be happier if the remembrance wasn't such a big shindig.
    a smaller less, public event would be sufficient. I don't think that they really appreciate grandstanding politicos using their personal tragedy as a platform for playing politics.
    people like bloomy, obuma and his band of thugs can stay home and wouldn't be missed, people like guilliani, pataki and gwb who were more involved would be more acceptable. this isn't about political leanings it is about who was part of the day and days immediately following
