Bill de Blasio Responds With Empty Platitudes After Caught Jaywalking & Speeding... (CBS New York)
Wednesday February 26th, 2014
Days after CBS 2 cameras exclusively caught his caravan running through stop signs and speeding, Mayor Bill de Blasio took his first questions about the incident.
“Every city employee needs to respect the law, myself included, needs to respect the traffic laws, needs to comport themselves in a way that’s safe, of course,” de Blasio said Monday. “No one’s above the law. That’s a fundamental view I hold in everything I think about public life in a democratic society. That’s a very different question however from the question of security for someone protected by the NYPD.”
