-- the 9/11 -- memorial museum barring politicians from speaking today.
At the eleven year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
A small group of victims' families now -- trying to contest that decision.
We are joined by the leader of that group retired FDNY deputy chief Jim riches.
He lost his son Jimmy junior in the tragedy eleven years ago.
I want to begin by first and sharing them some thoughts that you have today on your son Jimmy junior.
-- you know not a day goes -- -- some.
Tornado on his own single as a firefighter.
Curator throws Billings when there was a plane sticking out of it help people and that's just the person that he -- -- we miss him terribly never -- any closure and we'll always miss and we missed some especially tomorrow's his birthday and he wouldn't earn so.
That really makes a hero when you're running in and everyone else is running out and your other sons three other suns became firefighters after.
Yeah they became prime minister and an eleven he -- there will be four -- eleven heals well and -- -- -- and an eleven and -- little -- always.
Thank -- every -- Rivera LeBron when they think of these -- there.
-- -- -- Today you'll go down to the site for the reading of the names correct giving to them every year rule of them it was then they'll bring you know all of us old -- all their wives and -- -- down there move about to broker an almost around the new restaurant and his favorite restaurant and tells crazy Jimmy -- you know what a great kid -- was.
But the ceremony today would be a little bit different when you go down there because no politicians are being allowed to speak and -- disagree with that why.
Well I think it's a vindictive back by Joseph Daniels and Mayor Bloomberg they never contacted the families in this -- report.
I mean -- the politicians -- presidents -- -- for ten years.
All kinds of politicians they've helped us with the victim compensation fund.
Hold -- and offend -- -- is very grateful to them.
The as a program to help the sick of first responders and -- Mayor Bloomberg and -- then is decided on their own without any consultation with the film is on the -- supposed to be valid.
That they were not invite many cultures dispute with -- it's horrible I think and some you know that that they shouldn't have their power to do.
And they've also taken the human remains that are gonna go back to the site.
Who told separate and distinct from any museum of visitors that put them the body parts in the museum seven stories below grade to make a like a PT Barnum production.
But from above -- well Mayor Bloomberg and Joseph -- they don't -- that site.
Have the family's vote are where they want you -- through -- above greater several -- decisions you're saying they didn't speak to any of the family members say just made these on their -- not at all and that's exactly what they did he was very mad about the funding.
I mean they have a sixty million dollar bloated annual budget.
They have high six figure salaries that -- want anybody.
To have any oversight and them they made a deal today.
Another this is being addressed they -- twenty million dollars in federal taxpayer money.
And Governor Cuomo governor -- you all wrong it is gonna come out of our pockets.
We're paying these people high six figure salaries they don't deserve it and they should also consult the Phillies and ask us where we want to human body parts.
Because we observers say in that they shouldn't just have politicians because they don't want them there that's wrong.
Well hopefully there listening to you today and maybe -- get some type of communication with them as a result thank you so much for joining us we really appreciate your hero your whole family.
And to Jimmy junior we will be remembering him in many others today thank you.
