“Criminal investigations are under way to find out why it took so long to dig out from last week’s massive snow storm,” New York’s CBS affiliate reports:
Videos released exclusively to CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer suggest that the clean-up job may have been dirtier than once thought.
One video is now in the hands of prosecutors. It shows two sanitation trucks driving down 155th Street in the Whitestone section of Queens after the blizzard without removing the snow.
Their plows were apparently raised and the snow was left untouched in their wake, apparent proof that some in the Sanitation Department engineered a work slowdown.
“[It’s a] tremendous shock,” said NYC Councilman Daniel Halloran, R-Queens.
New York already tried going Cloward-Piven; why not try Coolidge-Reagan this time around?
