New York, NY – Mayor Michael Bloomberg says New York City “will not tolerate any bias” following the arrest of a U.S. citizen from Pakistan in the Times Square car bombing attempt.
Bloomberg addressing last night’s arrest of a suspect in the attempted Times Square attack, said that also applies to potential backlash against Muslim New Yorkers.
The mayor said there are “a few bad apples” among any groups. He also cited New York’s long history of accepting cultures from the around the world.
Joining the mayor was hero street vendor Lance Orton, who alerted authorities to the smoke-filled SUV.
