Bloomberg says’You will go to jail’. Bloomberg no longer allowed to name mules
Bloomberg warned residents of New York City that were ordered out of their homes for the upcoming hurricane. “Technically, ignoring the evacuation order would be a violation of the law, a class-B misdemeanor punishable by up to $500 in fines and 90 days in jail,” the mayor said.
“But if you don’t follow this, people might die . . . We’re not trying to punish people; we’re trying to protect them.”
Most people, the mayor said, figure to comply with the order, which is being reinforced by City Council members going door to door and by cop cars with loudspeakers saying, “Hey! C’mon! Your life is in danger!”
