Caught on Tape: Union workers caught not doing the job during NYC blizzard

From CBS2 in NYC:

One video is now in the hands of prosecutors. It shows two sanitation trucks driving down 155th Street in the Whitestone section of Queens after the blizzard without removing the snow.
Their plows were apparently raised and the snow was left untouched in their wake, apparent proof that some in the Sanitation Department engineered a work slowdown.
“[It’s a] tremendous shock,” said NYC Councilman Daniel Halloran, R-Queens. . . .

With people dying from the government unions not removing the snow, criminal charges look to be in store.

The plows might have been raised because they were ordered to go elsewhere ASAP, without plowing along the way. There's quite a bit of nitpicking going on with precisely how every detail of the snowplowing was done.
"...criminal charges look to be in store..." Against whom? As Mayor Bloomberg was responsible. The buck stops with him. Bloomberg's arrogant, autocratic, sociopathic leadership style has alienated city workers just as it has gun owners. As such, he is a dysfunctional, petty tyrant, but not a competent leader.
