Baltimore City Councilman Explains Lack of Police Response, Last Night: “We Asked Them To Back Off”

On day two of the Baltimore riots, the inept city government was still giving the rioter, looters and pillagers “the space to destroy.”

Via Colin Flaherty, who says this is his favorite moment from the riots, last night:

And here via AoSHQ, is the unlucky owner of the liqueur store that was in the unfortunate “destroy” space.

Reporters asked the governor of Maryland why he was so slow to send in the National Guard.

Maryland’s Governor Hogan said it was Mayor “Space to Destroy”  Stephanie Rawlings-Blake’s call – and she didn’t call. 

Some questioned why it took so long for the Guard to be activated, to which Hogan responded that Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was slow to make the request. He said he executed the request 30 seconds after it was made. Rawlings-Blake had initially said she wanted to give to protestors the “space to destroy” their environment….

“When the mayor called me, which quite frankly we were glad that she finally did, instantly we signed the executive order. We already had our entire team prepared,” he said. “We were trying to get in touch with the mayor for quite some time, she finally made that call and we immediately took action.”

Last Fall,  the Democrat Governor of Missouri was accused of holding back the National Guard (at Holder and Obama’s request) when the city of Ferguson was in flames. Now we have Democrat politicians in Baltimore doing the same stupid thing – and you have to wonder – are they getting orders from above – or is this kind of toxic stupidity endemic throughout the party? Or both?

Yeah. As I noted at PJ Tatler. This is the kind of incompetence and insanity you can count of when progressives are put into positions of power.

Whether it’s a big-city mayor giving common street thugs posing as protesters “space” to destroy a city, or the leader of the free world giving radical Islamists “space” to destroy entire countries —  what you get is chaos, terror, bloodshed and tears.

  1. Why did the Koreans take up arms to defend their stores during the LA riots and no one did it in Baltimore? If I’m a business owner in the path of these thugs, there’d be a pile of dead bodies in front of my store.

    I just don’t understand apparently sensible white people that live in cities where the majority of residents look at them as something they can assault, rape, rob and murder.

    That sh*t won’t fly here in the small town in w Texas where I live. And it’s 75%+ latino and Tejano.

  2. I just watched that video-“…at this point it’s not being productive.”???? Yamean, where someone questions your idiotic decision to allow a street full of thugs to destroy a man’s business?

    Wow.

  7. That’s way more than the Mayor is willing to admit too. There was another City Council member named Brandon Scott laid the responsibility right where it belongs with no excuses. Of course, we only heard from him once {that I’m aware of}.
