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.
Bringing all those out-of-towners into NYC for the marathon when ppl already have no place to go is going to intensify the riot mentality…

I wonder how Bloomberg will feel if/when angry people start rioting near the NYC Marathon? It would be ugly and runners could be in danger.

NYC Marathon is gonna cause a riot.

I legit hope running the NY Marathon causes a riot. It's all about the appearance of normalcy while ppl are still suffering.
