Twitter to Michael Bloomberg: ‘People will riot if you allow this marathon to go on’

Twitchy has already pointed out rising anger among New York residents aimed at mayor Michael Bloomberg andNYC marathon runners. Now some Twitter users are raising the possibility of a full-blown riot if the marathon continues as planned.

Is Bloomberg really going to go forward with this?

    Guess what? They still won’t riot even if they don’t get what they want. AND they will vote the same kind of people back into office. Why? because they are sheeple

    Liberate the generators, at least!

    I am not even a New Yorker but I would be offended if the Marathon is not postponed. How greedy that would be!!

    Can any of you morons clue us in as to what possible good could come to you from rioting??? If y’all had better prepared yourselves and not put so much faith in politicians and government, you would have enough to get by until your power is restored. Baaa, baaa…..sheep.

    I agree that the marathon should be cancelled. But, I read something this morning, I think on the NYP, that the generators belong to some guy that organizes the marathon. They don’t belong to the NYC. Bloomberg can’t use them if he wanted to. If whoever they belong to was half a human, he would let people borrow them, but he’s obviously not.

    Well, he caved to public pressure – the marathon is off.

    If they were only this passionate about something that mattered – like life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

    I agree continuing the marathon at this point in time would have been in horribly poor taste but has threatening to riot really become the level of discourse and means of influence that people prefer to use when they find something disagreeable?

    “If you run the marathon, ima riot”
    “If Romney wins election, ima riot”
    “If Republicans take away my food stamps, ima riot”
    “If they take my Obama phone away, ima riot”

    I would be upset if I had no food, water or heat. I guess it’s a way to stay warm.
