Thursday morning I was going to Columbus Circle to catch the B train downtown, except the police closed all of Columbus Circle: no traffic, foot or car. no buses, no subway. no mall or Whole Foods!. Everything was closed. Some asshole chucked chucked (what later turned out not to be ) a bomb in the back seat of a police car. Two cops saw this and jumped into the car and drove it away from people to minimize the possible lives lost to only their own. bad cops?
