This mayor made a decision to hold back the Baltimore police and wait 24 hrs before enforcing a curfew to give rioters time to blow off steam. This is the Liberal stupidity that let Crown Heights Brooklyn burn under an equally incompetent Mayor David Dinkins.

“I wanted to give space to those who wished to destroy,” that is how Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake described her policy[2] Saturday at a press conference. Her words, which effectively told police to stand down as those gathered to protest the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray smashed store windows, looted 7-Elevens and forced attendees at a Baltimore Oriole-Boston Red Sox baseball game to remain in the stadium because it wasn’t safe outside.

At a press conference on April 25 the mayor said, ““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.”

The resulting violence escalated as flyers were distributed describing how the city was going to have a “purge” Monday styled after the movie of the same name where all laws were suspended for one night.
