MLS playoff series between NY and DC has been changed so the first leg is DC hosting instead of NY... you know, because Red Bull Arena is running on generators right now. For some reason people are pissed about that, like the weather was avoidable

I don't know how you guys are doing it, we prepared for disaster and only got a little wind. Screw the marathon and stay with your family for the weekend.
No outside cops as far as I know. Remember, we have 32,000 or so of our own.

I could definitely see a lot of guys refusing to show up so that they can finally take care of business on what would have been their day off.

He's going to piss people off whether you have the marathon or not, just pissing off a different group depending on which way he decided it. Might as well make the decision that brings money into the local economy.
I can see both sides but side with giving the working man time to tend to his own.

How are people behaving?

If all or alot of NYPD is covering the Race who is covering and protecting the people affected by this tragedy? IT is not like here in CO where all non felons can own a weapon. Are they going to wait until a looter shoots and kills a family before they wake up?

Everyone will get screwed over. They will say the wind damage was flood damage. And the flood damage was wind damage. And the hurricane damage was caused by an act of god. Just my 2.

Marathon still on but the largest hotel in SI refused to honor their reservations and instead gave the rooms to displaced people. The anger over the marathon is boiling over.

I don't use reddit. What's the question? Maybe I can help through here.

Just read that. The solution is easy: postpone it, period. Cops should be 100% focused on saving lives and protecting homes from looters.

I linked the thread. There is a guy that is in desperate need of fuel. I am sure most are as well but he is in your neck of the woods. you can create an account for free. There are even homebrewing sub reddits
