(WTNH) -- Tonight, people are talking about a man who illegally 'filled up' at an Orange gas station and the New York City marathon being canceled. We're also hearing from folks who thought someone was missing during our storm coverage in tonight's Voice of the People.
John from Wallingford, "They arrested this gentleman for carrying gasoline in a Home Depot bucket. Those people are going through enough, and how dare that police officer charge anyone. This is what this world's come to that not one person in this country has a heart."
Melba from Bristol said, "I think the best thing that Mayor Bloomberg did was to cancel that marathon because it would be so sad that people are enjoying themselves running, and here people are suffering without electricity, without power, anything."
Courtney said, "It would have been a good idea to go ahead with the marathon. He was just trying to give them hope, which is what a leader does. I think his intentions were good and honorable."
David from Wallingford said, "Governor Malloy, us state employees have been out there clearing roads, trees are down, not mentioning anything about the Connecticut DOT workers helping out and thanking them."
Cindy from North Haven said, "I want to thank you for the wonderful coverage and support you've given us on the Storm Sandy. But I did want to make a comment. If you remember, somebody was missing from the storm, somebody we all knew and loved, and that was Dr. Mel. And boy, did we miss him. But you know what, he is watching us from above. Dr. Mel, we missed you terribly."
