The odd tactic of giving Baltimore protesters ‘space’ to destroy property

“…What no one expected is what Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake admitted in a press conference on Sunday: that she asked the Baltimore Police Department to “give those who wished to destroy space to do that.”

    Do the owners of this property get any say?

    • Hahahahaha!

        “Nice little property you have here. Shame about the wildly escalating insurance premiums for white owned properties. If you ever want to sell give us a call ………..”

      They just might – in court, after this is over. Tax paying businesses deserve the protection of municipal police, not to be sacrificed. There will be suits filed based on the mayor’s stupid words.

    When do the rest of us get a “safe space” from these animals?

    there will be plenty of space when all the stores move out leaving a food. grocery. pharmaceutical desert.

    Give them space? In police circles it’s known as “Blairing”

    Maybe they just need a timeout.

  • The problem is not the police per se but those in higher authority.

    Who gives people a “safe space” in which to riot and loot?

  • Clausewitz

    Where’s the crap cannon when you really need if. Both for the rioters and the mayor.

  • Blacksmith

    Racist blacks rioting, looting and attacking whites, mayor of town is black, I don’t see the connection……. /S
