NY’s Dumbest; NYC sanitation workers destroy a Ford Explorer

                                                                 by David Bidwell on 12/28/10

City workers destroy a Ford Explorer trying to free a snowbound front-loader in Brooklyn Heights, New York after the storm of 2010. The crazy thing here….the vehicle WAS….wait for it….A NYC Dept of Buildings city owned vehicle. I went down, I know the owner, they are aware of the video and no police ever came. Hope that answers a lot of questions

The owner of the SUV should sue both? the supervisor who gave the orders for the tow-truck to demolish the SUV and the tow-truck driver who did the demolishing for punitive damages. Employees like that are a good argument for making New York State a right-to-work state. New York unions behave like neanderthals and get away with murder.

its one thing to have a accident to hit it once but to just say fuck it and keep repeatedly smashing into it what a asshole. and why the hell didnt they? pull him out forward

And the saddest part is that both drivers – the one in the tow truck – as well as the one in the front end? loader – knew the damage they were causing and still proceeded with abandon. I wonder what Mayor Bloomberg and Sanitation Commissioner John Doherty have to say about this? Perhaps it was a blessing in disguise that more Sanitation Dept. crew weren’t on the streets; they may have cause more damage than the blizzard!

What non-biased philosopher king bureaucratic tyranny decides what “funds” to take from productive people to give to? public employee morons who fuck other people’s property? The “Citizenry” would never have any incentive to better their own lives without the big blob government taking their money, just to dangle it in their face latter on. These “FUNDS’ as you call them would never go to Public Union Pensions in the BILLIONS right? Or go to the SEC to get Porn and JERK OFF ALL DAY?

can some of you please read the video description? wait, if you did, then you probably couldn’t say such bizarre and hateful things. he says himself that no police ever came. i imagine the? situation was handled properly, and most of you are just too stupid to read the video description. and wtf, how did you guys bring obama into this? you guys are amazingly stupid >< 7. UncleSamlovespunks said on 12/28/10 – 10:14PM I love how this guy is in his warm apartment in his BOXERS while government employees are working all hours so this jerk off can go off to Whole Foods and finish doing his food shopping and then take Wiggles out for a walk later on clean sidewalks. Clearly, this NYC employee was wrong in hitting the parked SUV, but the plow was stuck! There is video and the City will be held accountable. There is no need to call these guys retards when while the rest of us? are on our asses. 8. 11721Kevin said on 12/28/10 – 10:15PM This is what happens when they outsource the work to politically connected? contractors instead of unionized city employees. 9. mushmouth4life said on 12/28/10 – 10:16PM You mention that you know the car owner, tell him if he wants to sue the city, they need to file a notice of claim within 90 days of the? incident before they can even consider filing a lawsuit. If they dont file the notice of claim they could be barred from filing suit. 10. SOURkittie said on 12/28/10 – 10:17PM WTF? ARE? THEY THAT STUPID? 11. ggotch said on 12/28/10 – 10:18PM Excellent commentary! This shows you unions are useless in this day and age. This union? tard will not lose his job. I hope the car owner gets a brand new car. If that was my car I would be kicking his teeth out on the curb. I read today that a stage worker at Lincoln center gets 350k a year. And you think keeping garbage like this employed is sustainable without a financial collape? 12. vg226 said on 12/28/10 – 10:19PM I’m just laughing at the fact that the guy shooting the video open has the window open but has almost? no clothes on, haha. gotta love new yorkers! 13. A nice brick? from your window landing on the front end loader wouold have been nice…but then again if it would have been my vehicle the tow truck driver and the front end loader driver had messed up, I would have been down there with fire in my eyes re said on 12/28/10 – 10:20PM A nice brick? from your window landing on the front end loader wouold have been nice…but then again if it would have been my vehicle the tow truck driver and the front end loader driver had messed up, I would have been down there with fire in my eyes ready to take a life The video guy is right…UNBELIEVEABLE. And for those that say politics have nothing to do with this…you are wrong…soooooooooo wrong. Look at what politics has done to your State and blame who you elected. 14. lorina916 said on 12/28/10 – 10:22PM What morons!!!? It’s just NOT worth having a car in this city. They had so many opportunities? to see they were doing damage, yet they kept going. what do they care, the city (tax payers) will foot the bill for the damage. Those? guys need to be fired and sued. I can’t believe they were asking why anyone was upset.. 15. situpking said on 12/28/10 – 10:24PM Im sure this person will get reinbursed because it was caught on your tape!!! If it wasnt, then he would pay a severe increase in insurance and the city would deny everything. The driver should? know if you need help with a tow truck, then dont even try it! Good job !! 16.

Since the tow truck driver is operating a heavy duty truck, he should know that the tow? truck is supposed to be fixed in a safe place with the retaining legs down and he is supposed to pull with the winch(that is why they come with winches and snatch blocks) FIRE THIS GUY AND MAKE HIM PAY FOR THE DAMAGE!

He is in fucking PJ’s Maybe instead of bitching about the car while he os videoing he could shovel a little. Thousands of workers out trying to clear the city on bad incident? and look at the reaction. People in this city are spoiled. The city sanitation workers should fucking walk off then people will beg for them to come and clean the snow for them.

Fafnir11 said on 12/28/10 – 10:43PM The idiot operating the loader got his job not because he is qualified to operate the loader, but because he has a relative who got him? the job to begin with. Nepotism at it’s best in New York. The tow truck operator is also a retard, because any decent tow operator knows to move obstructions or not to do the tow. A double dose of stupidity in action.

This happened to my father many years ago in Western PA when we had a good deal of snow and the snow plow came down the road and took out the passenger side of the car and kept on going. The sad part is you are there screaming at this driver and he either cannot hear you or pretends not to hear you. In the process, he takes out the back end of this Explorer. Great video…just not so great for the person who owns that Explorer swd112083 9 hours ago 34. R0YB0T said on 12/28/10 – 10:45PM If they are sanitation then these guys? get paid very well after 5 years and have pensions, full health benefits and a powerful union.

Theres been a large Jewish pop in nyc for over? 100 yrs and a long line of Jewish mayors, starting with fiorello laguardia (dad was italian, mom was jewish = jewish), for almost as long. although he’s far from perfect, bloomberg isnt running anything into the ground AND he’s not Jewish, just has a Jewish last name (dad’s Jewish, mom is not = not Jewish).

NikiD911 said on 12/28/10 – 10:47PM As a Buffalo resident, we get some of the WORST lake effect snow out of any place? in the country. My comment is in response to the moron Lagniappes Guy… the front loaders and city-paid plow trucks- that is their JOB to clear the streets. That’s what they get paid for. Granted, it’s not always an easy job. Some of these drivers are very good at what they do and some of them suck. You’re probably one of them.

Why should the owner make a claim against his insurance to fix a city fucked up? Who’s going to pay the insurance premiums that will sky rocket? What if the insurance company junks the car? and pays out less than remaining principal of the loan or less than the cost of a replacement? What if the owner doesn’t have full coverage insurance, but just liability? I bet “he has insurance” is exactly the thinking process that caused this. elitefiber 9 hours ago 24 40.

Thus the FORD got what was coming to it, sure seeing it towed would have been good but? watching the piece of shit get smashed was FAR better.

Some jobs, mostly in government, schools, colleges and universities, are represented by a union. If you get a job at any place represented by a union, you have to join the union and pay union dues. It is very hard to fire? or terminate a worker if he or she is represented by a union. In a right-to-work state, union membership is not a requirement to taking a union job. Plus, unions have less clout and it’s much easier to fire or terminate an worker. azzonie 15 minutes ago 2 89. beepandbop said on 12/28/10 – 11:35PM former union worker here, and California used to be very? bad, now it’s upgraded to slightly bad beepandbop 14 minutes ago 90.

CHAINS? Even then they could’ve used the barrel to lift the truck and inch it out ( a very commonly used trick used in this situation). They also? could’ve used a second truck in the front of the tractor to pull it out sideways rather than into someone elses car.

If you have ever buried your car in the ditch in the snow the tow crew always digs out first otherwise like in the video you do more damage than going in the ditch did. ?

    NY’s Dumbest; NYC sanitation workers destroy a Ford Explorer

    City workers destroy a Ford Explorer trying to free a snowbound front-loader in Brooklyn Heights, New York after the storm of 2010. The crazy thing here….the vehicle WAS….wait for it….A NYC Dept of Buildings city owned vehicle. I went down, I know the owner, they are aware of the video and no police ever came. Hope that answers a lot of questions

    The owner of the SUV should sue both? the supervisor who gave the orders for the tow-truck to demolish the SUV and the tow-truck driver who did the demolishing for punitive damages. Employees like that are a good argument for making New York State a right-to-work state. New York unions behave like neanderthals and get away with murder.

    its one thing to have a accident to hit it once but to just say fuck it and keep repeatedly smashing into it what a asshole. and why the hell didnt they? pull him out forward
    4. TheShannon76 said on 12/28/10 – 10:07PM

    And the saddest part is that both drivers – the one in the tow truck – as well as the one in the front end? loader – knew the damage they were causing and still proceeded with abandon. I wonder what Mayor Bloomberg and Sanitation Commissioner John Doherty have to say about this? Perhaps it was a blessing in disguise that more Sanitation Dept. crew weren’t on the streets; they may have cause more damage than the blizzard!

    What non-biased philosopher king bureaucratic tyranny decides what “funds” to take from productive people to give to? public employee morons who fuck other people’s property? The “Citizenry” would never have any incentive to better their own lives without the big blob government taking their money, just to dangle it in their face latter on. These “FUNDS’ as you call them would never go to Public Union Pensions in the BILLIONS right? Or go to the SEC to get Porn and JERK OFF ALL DAY?

    can some of you please read the video description? wait, if you did, then you probably couldn’t say such bizarre and hateful things. he says himself that no police ever came. i imagine the? situation was handled properly, and most of you are just too stupid to read the video description. and wtf, how did you guys bring obama into this? you guys are amazingly stupid >< 7. UncleSamlovespunks said on 12/28/10 – 10:14PM I love how this guy is in his warm apartment in his BOXERS while government employees are working all hours so this jerk off can go off to Whole Foods and finish doing his food shopping and then take Wiggles out for a walk later on clean sidewalks.

I hope the car owner gets a brand new car. If that was my car I would be kicking his teeth out on the curb. I read today that a stage worker at Lincoln center gets 350k a year. And you think keeping garbage like this employed is sustainable without a financial collape? 12. vg226 said on 12/28/10 – 10:19PM I’m just laughing at the fact that the guy shooting the video open has the window open but has almost? no clothes on, haha. gotta love new yorkers! 13.

Why should the owner make a claim against his insurance to fix a city fucked up? Who’s going to pay the insurance premiums that will sky rocket? What if the insurance company junks the car? and pays out less than remaining principal of the loan or less than the cost of a replacement? What if the owner doesn’t have full coverage insurance, but just liability? I bet “he has insurance” is exactly the thinking process that caused this. elitefiber 9 hours ago 24 40.

Sutsu said on 12/28/10 – 11:05PM The ineptitude of the Department of Sanitation during this storm has been of an epic scale. Whether it’s because the Mayor don’t care or because the DoS is doing a slow down to protest the 100 supervisors getting demoted, it’s an embarrassment. Get a supervisor?

Odds are being a FORD it was already dead and on it’s way to a scrap yard but being parked on the street during a snow storm inhibits snow removal. Thus the FORD got what was coming to it, sure seeing it towed would have been good but? watching the piece of shit get smashed was FAR better.

Some jobs, mostly in government, schools, colleges and universities, are represented by a union. If you get a job at any place represented by a union, you have to join the union and pay union dues. It is very hard to fire? or terminate a worker if he or she is represented by a union. In a right-to-work state, union membership is not a requirement to taking a union job. Plus, unions have less clout and it’s much easier to fire or terminate an worker. azzonie 15 minutes ago 2 89. beepandbop said on 12/28/10 – 11:35PM former union worker here, and California used to be very? bad, now it’s upgraded to slightly bad beepandbop 14 minutes ago 90.
