BALTIMORE RIOTS - Nighttime Curfew Brings Pepper Balls and Tear Gas Chaos






The governor of Maryland promised Tuesday to put the appropriate assets in place to prevent further looting that was seen in Baltimore in the past 24 hours in reaction to the funeral of Freddie Gray, a young black man who died while in police custody.

Gov. Larry Hogan, a Republican, said officials in his cabinet have been meeting with city leaders to better prepare for any new unrest. Hogan said he would not point fingers about the city's response under Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.

Rawlings-Blake was under intense pressure to defend her response to the violence that has ripped apart her city following Gray's funeral, particularly her remarks in which she suggested those who "wished to destroy" need their space.

With more than a dozen officers injured in clashes with rioters and looters, some -- including Hogan-- are questioning whether Rawlings-Blake should have acted sooner and taken a tougher tone to prevent the demonstrations from getting out of control.

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

This is a glimpse of what a martial law scenario would look like with militarized police and national guard being deployed to quell the riots in Baltimore. “No, it’s not the right word to call our children ‘thugs,’” Stokes said, when Burnett brought up the point.. “These are children who have been set aside, marginalized, who have not been engaged by us.”

“But how does that justify what they did?” Burnett argued. “That’s a sense of right and wrong. They know it’s wrong to steal and burn down a CVS and an old persons’ home. I mean, come on.”

“No, we don’t have to call them by names such as that. We don’t have to do that. That is exactly what we’ve sent them to. When you say, ‘Come on,’ come on what? You wouldn’t call your child a thug if they should do something that would not be what you expect them to do.” Carl Stokes Just Call Them Ni**ers' When Protesters Are Called Thugs. Images of police vehicles burning made for great television all over the planet, but why were there abandoned police vehicles sitting right in the middle of the riot zones without any police officers around them in the first place? And why are Baltimore police officers claiming that they were ordered to “stand down” and not intervene as dozens of shops, businesses and homes went up in flames? Yes, the anger over the death of Freddie Gray is very real.
Police brutality has been a major problem in Baltimore and much of the rest of the nation for many years. But could it be possible that the anger that the people of Baltimore are feeling is being channeled and manipulated for other purposes? The following are 12 unanswered questions about the Baltimore riots that they don’t want us to ask…

#1 Why are dozens of social media accounts that were linked to violence in Ferguson now trying to stir up violence in Baltimore?… The data mining firm that found between 20 and 50 social media accounts in Baltimore linked to the violence in Ferguson, Mo. is now reporting a spike in message traffic in Washington D.C., Philadelphia and New York City, with “protesters” trying to get rides to Baltimore for Tuesday night.

#8 Why is an organization funded by George Soros stirring up emotions against the police in Baltimore? Why did Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake initially tell reporters that a decision was made on Saturday to give “those who wished to destroy space to do that”? Rawlings-Blake was one of three mayors who provided broad input into President Obama’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing, which advocates the federalization of police departments across the country by forcing them to adhere to stricter federal requirements when they receive funding.
