This is utterly absurd:
A Staten Island man was arrested after he was caught hoarding gas after he filled up 30 five-gallon buckets with fuel from a station in upstate Orange. The man intended to bring the buckets of gas back to his Richmond Hill neighborhood where neighbors desperately needed it for cars and generators.
A man traveled a minimum of a good two hours away—four hours round trip, perhaps more under current conditions—in order to get gas for his neighbors, and has been treated like a criminal in return.
Somebody needs to slap some sense into the cops and public officials in New York. A man was arrested for doing what the state failed to do.
This is madness.
