Only a democrat could blame the media for ‘blatant mischaracterization’ her own words. Nothing she said was misconstrued or misinterpreted we have her on tape saying we ‘gave those who wished to destroy space to do that’.
“I made it very clear that I work with the police and instructed them to do everything that they could to make sure that the protesters were able to exercise their right to free speech.
It’s a very delicate balancing act. Because while we try to make sure that they were protected from the cars and other things that were going on, we also gave those who wished to destroy space to do that as well. And we worked very hard to keep that balance and to put ourselves in the best position to de-escalate.”
Fact Rawlings-Blake empowered and emboldened the rioters or as she put it thugs.
This is so typical of progressive leadership to not accept responsibility and blame others. Oh btw she more or less just invited Sharpton to come on down and “help” tamp things down! When has Al Sharpton ever stepped in to calm racial tension? Sharpton is in fact part of the reason for all the tension between races and the police for decades.
Now to add insult to injury this rocket scientists solution to stop the violence tonight is by issuing a curfew that will start TOMORROW!
Baltimore you need to start triage right now by calling for Rawlings-Blake’s immediate resignation. This did not have to happen, she incited, even encouraged riots no matter how she tries to spin it. A god chunk of the destruction is due to her poor leadership.
