In the aftermath of the Harris Smith incident, Michael Bloomberg -- the mayor of New York City -- is on a rampage, and the hospital where Harris Smith checked himself in is next on the mayor's hit-list. After stating that it would be an "outrage" if Harris Smith isn't given at least the minimum prison sentence for his concealed weapon and ensuing cover-up attempt, the mayor went after the hospital.
The mayor also lashed out at New York Presbyterian Hospital for failing to inform police about the incident. He called on the state attorney general to "go after" the hospital for a "chargeable offense."
The district attorney's office said the hospital is under investigation. The hospital said it also is investigating the incident and promised to cooperate with authorities.
The hospital reacted swiftly, no doubt trying to make an individual take the fall rather than the entire operation.
"We can confirm that the individual at New York Presbyterian Hospital, who was responsible for failing to report the incident, has been suspended," hospital spokeswoman Robinson said.
As George Costanza once said, "this is like an onion, the more layers you peel, the more it stinks."
