http://www.nj.com/essex/index.ssf/2...nistration_of_reckless_conduct_in_gwb_la.html Livery drivers who lost income by being stuck for four hours are starting a class-action. One of the beauty parts of this is that administration records will become discoverable. I thought about starting a thread about this incident (I hate to call it "Bridgegate" but that seems to be the shorthand of the day) a day or two ago. The more I thought about this, the more heinous it seemed to me. Am I crazy, or did members of that administration, maybe Christie himself, commit a criminal act on a grand scale? There are crimes that deal with curtailing someone's ability to move about freely. In Missouri, we have, of course, kidnapping, but we also have some lower level offenses such as felonious restraint and a misdemeanor simply called false imprisonment. New Jersey has some of the toughest kidnapping laws in the country as a result of the Lindbergh baby case. I have no idea about its lesser offenses. If I hold the door closed and don't let my wife or girlfriend out of the bedroom for four minutes, I'm guilty of at least false imprisonment. If I create a condition that keeps drivers stuck in place on a bridge for four hours, am I not guilty of at least that? It makes you wonder at a minimum about people who had to piss and shit on that bridge that day, and worse, about people with medical conditions like diabetes. Then there's the whole idea, irregardless of the criminality of it, that a political hack would make thousands of innocent people suffer just for some petty payback. Maybe I'm overthinking this one, but the more I think about it, the more pissed off I get.
