NYC's exclusion of rescue team operators from 9-11 memorial is obscene

Socialist NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg's city hall has gone beyond the pale by excluding firefighters, police, and medical operators from the 9-11 memorial:
In a decision that has rocked the world of emergency services, New York City will not invite police, firefighters and other emergency personnel to ceremonies at Ground Zero marking the tenth anniversary of the terror attack that toppled the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center.

A spokesman for Mayor Michael Bloomberg confirmed the news in a statement saying that the September 11th memorial ceremony would be restricted solely to family members of victims who died on the site.

“While we are again focused on accommodating victims' family members, given the space constraints, we're working to find ways to recognize and honor first responders, and other groups, at different places and times,” said spokesman Andrew Brent.

There has been an a flurry of outrage over the news. Thousands of police officers, firefighters, emergency medical personnel and volunteers risked their own lives trying desperately around the clock, for days, to extricate victims trapped beneath the wreckage of the massive Twin Towers.

The families of the first responders who raced to the scene, and whose lives were forfeit as a result, have themselves responded with emotions ranging from shock to rage. “It's a painful insult for many of the approximately 3,000 men and women [who] risked their lives, limbs and lungs on that monumental day, puncturing another hole in a still searing wound,” reported CNN earlier this month.
When the election for new mayor of NYC is held, which I assume is next year, I hope that residents are finally going to elect a better one than the horrific Bloomberg, whose own record is absolutely awful, and this offensive act only adds to his dismal record.
