Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake Says Saturday We Gave Gray Protestors ‘Who Wish To Destroy Space To Do That’ … Monday, Total Anarchy and Riots Ensue as She Walks Back Her Comments
Want to know how things like in Baltimore happen, it comes from a complete lack of leadership. Talk about a green light to protesters.
Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said during a press conference on Saturday when tensions were on the rise … “we also gave “those who wish to destroy space to do that as well.”
Mayor of Baltimore Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said that while officials worked to protect protestors taking action over the death of Freddie Gray they also gave “those who wish to destroy space to do that as well.” During her press conference Saturday, Rawlings-Blake said that she worked with police to make sure they protected the protestors’ right to free speech, “ It’s a very delicate balancing act because while we try to make sure that they (protestors) were protected from the cars and the other things that were going on, we also gave those who wished to destroy space to do that as well,” Rawlings-Blake said.
On Monday Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake had complete amnesia as she says to reports that she never said such a thing and would never say anything like we are giving people space to destroy the city of Baltimore. HUH? She scolded the media and said that her words should not be twisted. DOUBLE HUH? Watch the VIDEO below. Sorry toots, you made the comment. Who are you going to believe, the mayors words or her backtracking? It is obvious that Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was acting in a PC manner and wanted to give the protesters and trouble makers all the room in the words because in her liberal mind was, if you let them get it out of their systems, it will stop. However, it exploded.
This was not the media twisting someones words, it was a politician who was in over their head and hasn’t a clue how to deal with the situation. Instead of leadership, she blames the media. This is what happens when ideology gets in the way of leadership.
More billiance from the Mayor … Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake announced Monday evening that a week-long curfew would go into effect Tuesday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. local time, but many wondered why it had not been implemented Monday night.
