CNN tries to blame Gov. Hogan, but it backfires
On Sunday, the mayor of Baltimore openly admitted that she ordered police to stand down and allow people to riot. She said that allowing some violence would “strike a balance.” This led to widespread racially motivated attacks on white people, including at least three members of the media.
At least fifteen police officers have been injured. At least a half dozen police vehicles and other cars were torched. Dozens of other vehicles had windows smashed. Stores were looted.
A brand new Senior Center, that was not yet occupied, was torched. A CVS and other buildings were also set on fire.
Now the National Guard is being deployed. The Governor of Maryland is refusing to cover for Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. The Governor says that the state assembled a response immediately, but had to wait for mayor to allow them to intervene.
CNN’s Don Lemon tried to run cover for the incompetent mayor of Baltimore, who is also a national officer for the Democrat Party. Governor Hogan made Lemon look like an idiot on national television.
