Bloomberg's Car Stolen, Aide Beaten By Thieves
(AP) NEW YORK A personal employee of Mayor Michael Bloomberg was beaten by thieves who then carjacked the billionaire's car Wednesday morning in New Jersey, authorities said.

The employee was driving the 2001 Lexus in Hackensack, N.J., on an errand for the mayor shortly before 9 a.m. when he was approached by a woman who came to the window to ask for money, police said. As he declined and began to roll up the window, a man got into the passenger seat and punched him in the face.

"They force him out and take off," said Hackensack police Capt. Frank Lomia.

The car was found about two hours later, abandoned on the side of the road in Fair Lawn, N.J. Police were looking for the two suspects.

Bloomberg's employee was not seriously injured and his name was not released. He is one of many staffers who take care of Bloomberg's personal business and his homes, including his townhouse in Manhattan and country house in upstate New York.

Take away all guns from criminals and they can still commit crimes - if they're bigger than you, have the element of surprise, etc...

Less guns=less crime, right?

And some people say that they don't like Jersey. Too bad the wrong person was behind the wheel.;)

Nobody is the "right person" to be a victim of crime.

When did politicians start owning luxury cars? I thought they used public transit! What, public transportation is a breeding ground for muggers and other criminals?

When one criminal commits a crime against another criminal, sometimes there is justice in the matter. And make no mistake, Bloomberg is a criminal. Anyone, who either prevents or conspires to prevent a US citizen from exercising their constitutionally protected rights is a criminal.

Blomberg is a criminal specifically for initiating "strawman" purchases in several states... Can someone please explain why he is immune from prosecution?

Please, please let there be a gun in the car when the vehicle is recovered.

He might now, but if he decides to run an unsuccessful candidacy for President, he'll switch to a brand-new car, American brand.

I hope the driver is okay. If Blooming Idiot had been driving himself, it would have been schadenfreude all the way.

But then, he has armed bodyguards. The driver likely wasn't allowed to have a gun.

As for brands of cars, Lexus = Toyota = made in Kentucky, likely. Ford = hecho en Mexico.

Pray for the cops to find some stuff like kiddie porn or drugs or even *gasp* a gun in his car.

e.g., 'Please, please let there be a gun in the car when the vehicle is recovered.'

It was already recovered.

The car was found about two hours later, abandoned on the side of the road in Fair Lawn, N.J. Police were looking for the two suspects.

He's a lefist extremist R.I.N.O., so he gets a pass.

"Please, please let there be a gun in the car when the vehicle is recovered."

If this had been the car used by former Milwaukee mayor John Norquist, the thieves would have found two drop-down compartments in the roof of the car, each with an M16 in it. (The sales rep for the company that did the installation is a friend of mine).

In related news, Bloomberg is now sending undercover agents to attempt to purchase used cars in Virginia. " Those Virginia dealers break the law and the cars end up being used in crime here in NYC..." :p

I wonder if his employee will now be granted a CCW permit?

Poetic justice in light of the fact that Bloomberg himself would like to hijack America.

Wait, the jackers used force disparity and not a firearm? How could this be?

Oh and Manedwolf, if you want an American made Ford, buy a Mazda.;)
