Angry residents pelted utility crews with eggs as they tried to restore power in Bridgeport, Conn., after the mayor claimed the local power company had "shortchanged" the state's largest city as it tries to recover from superstorm Sandy.

If it had a reputation as a rough place, this sure doesn’t help.
Let the youth gangs who run that place fix the electricity themselves. Hope they don’t get shocked if they don’t know what the heck they are doing.
I was just reading this on Drudge - just amazing. I’m glad the power company pulled their guys out until the cops force these ungrateful jackasses to act like human beings.
Talk about biting off your nose to spite you face...
When I drive down the road it seems everyone is a total moron.
Driving fast to cut in front of me unsafely, and then put on the brakes and make a sharp right into a 7-11 or something.
So, now comes THIS article.
Sigh. The world is full of morons these days and this article proves it to me.
I’d think it wiser to use the eggs as food instead of using them as projectiles.
Around these parts we come out with hot coffee and egg salad sandwiches for the storm crews.
Throwing things at uniformed public employees who are on duty, risking their own safety to peacefully restore order and protect the citizenry. Ah, must be Democrats.
Next they will riot over not having food.
Sons of Obama at it again.
This place has been going down the sh*tter ever since the Bridgeport Machine plant shut down.
The mayor sounds like a copy of Nagan. A real twit.
I’m sure the crews will be more than appreciated elsewhere.
Imagine that. Show some gratitude.
I have always respected those guys.
I’m a contractor, and have interacted with those guys in different states and observed them, not a lot, but a little more than average, and I don’t have any negative anecdotes or impressions, they always struck me as troopers, neither rain nor sleet, the mission must be completed, the mission is everything, these people need me, type of guys.
Ok, after today’s news I am just going to assume that the world’s most stupid, most obnoxious, most annoying, most worthless and most usless people of all time currently live in the northeastern part of the united states...
>>most usless people of all time currently live in the northeastern part of the united states...
I’d just add a caveat—”live in the Cities of the NE part of the USA”. Most of my (rural) neighbors are God-loving, nice, friendly, people. Just like the best parts of this country.
Ah yep, point taken.
Gotta admit they do have some stones.../s
Gee these guys that they are pelting with eggs, don’t even make the decision on which area they work on. They higher ups tell them where to go. If I were these guys I would of dumped them to the bottom of the list.
