  • Bloomberg Security Guard Is Attacked While Guarding Mayor

    October 22, 2007

    A member of the mayor's security team was attacked on a Manhattan subway platform Monday afternoon while traveling with the mayor.

    Sources say the mayor and his security detail were waiting for the 4 and 5 trains at the Fulton Street Station Monday afternoon when a man lunged at one of the officers.

    Sources say the officer struggled with the 30 year-old man when the train arrived and the mayor hopped on board.

    Commuters who spoke with NY1 were surprised to hear the news.

    "Makes me second guess trying to go this way," said one commuter. "Maybe I should try to find another route or something like that. I'm not sure. It's crazy."

    "It's very scary. I take this train everyday. Now I have to watch out, you know. I'm sorry to hear that," added another.

    The mayor was not hurt and officials say there is no reason to think the man was targeting the him.

    The suspect is under observation at an area hospital

    I saw the same story, the guy wasn't attacking the mayor, he was attacking the Transit Cop in his detail because he was a cop:

    About Mayors and Security:There are crazys everywhere, which is why mayors now need Security Details. Dallas PD rotates officers on the Mayor's detail, I know one guy who did it for former mayor Ron Kirk.

    About SOs in hard uniforms: It can happen to you, this is a good reason to alwyas remain Alert. Just because YOU know you're not a Police Officer doesn't mean the crazies who want to kill a cop knows it.

    Side note: I thought attacks on Police Officers being posted in here was frowned on? Last time someone did (about an officer he knew personally If I recall correctly) the poster was told to take it to Officer.com. Did something change?

      AMEN! Think about that the next time you walk in to a convenience store, fill up at a gas station, or fill out reports in a vehicle with the dome light on.

        Maybe the poster didn't realize that security for a mayor is usually handled by a Police Officer. The quebec Government has a Security force made up of members who are not "Peace Officers" that guards the members of the National Assembly.(Quebec's parliament)

          At the strident request of my first enlisted supervisor in Air Police, I purchased a lighted ball point pen powered by the then very new W German made AAA battery. Very discreet or subdued light. I used the same pen to take notes during some of night college courses. It made for clear note taking in a darkened classroom
          Neat topic.
          Enjoy the day,

            Good idea Bill. They don't call those dome lights "sniper lights" for nothing.

                Mr. Security I guess back in the dark ages, our Township cruisers had their dome lights disconnected. Small red bulbed lights in goose neck lamps were installed next to the radios to facilitate ticket or report writing.
