    Mayor Michael Bloomberg turned the National Guard away from Brooklyn because they were carrying guns.
    NewsBusters reported, via FOX Nation:

    Mayor Bloomberg has snubbed Borough President Markowitz’s impassioned plea to bring the National Guard to Hurricane Sandy-scarred Brooklyn — arguing that approving the Beep’s request would be a waste of federal manpower and turn the borough into a police state.

    “We don’t need it,” Mayor Bloomberg said on Wednesday during a press update on the city’s ongoing Hurricane Sandy cleanup. “The NYPD is the only people we want on the street with guns.”

    Markowitz demanded the National Guard’s help just an hour before Bloomberg’s press conference, claiming that the NYPD and FDNY are “brave — but overwhelmed” by all the challenges Sandy brought when it visited the borough on Monday night: flooding, power outages, and looting.

    Why hasn't Bloomberg released the supplies for the marathon that aren't being used. There are 200 porta potties, thousands of bottles of water, more than 2,000 mylar space blankets, tons of food, generators, heaters. All sitting there. Why? Any ideas?

    Why did he have such a retarded idea like holding a marathon tying up valuable resources in a time of emergency? How did this man become a mayor? Who in the right mind viewed the marathon as a good idea, and what people on his staff encouraged the idea? Why does he think he can tell people what they can and can't drink? If he is going to tell people what they can and can't drink then why not put a limit on alcohol over soda, it usually has just as much calories and people tend to drink that in excess a lot more...make the streets safer too? Why is not "looking" like a military state a bigger concern, than keeping your citizens safe from kids who are taking advantage of people in an emergency state while 90% of your police force is keeping order at gas stations and food distributors?

    These are some other questions I would like an answer to.
