UPDATE To Gray Story Below.

Not only did the police rough up some reporters, but reporters were attacked by “protestors.”

A Ruptly producer had their handbag stolen live on camera, after being surrounded by a group of youths, as they filmed a protest over the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore, Saturday. The producer gave chase to the suspected thief before police intervened.

And then you have the Mayor of Baltimore making a statement during her press conference showing what type of person she is.

This is the full press conference and her remarks are at the 7:40 mark.

“While we tried to make sure that they were protected from the cars and the other things that were going on,” the mayor said of the protesters. “We also gave those who wished to destroy space to do that as well. And we work very hard to keep that balance and to put ourselves in the best position to deescalate, and that’s what you saw.”

The city gave space to those who wish to destroy as well?

The property owners had to sit back and watch their property and businesses being destroyed while the police did nothing?

And Baltimore wonders why people and businesses are leaving the city.

  1. I enjoyed how she tried to walk back the comment, “put it in context”, etc. Meanwhile, the Orioles had to postpone their game against the Black Sox, the first time a baseball game has been postponed due to rioting since 1968, as best I can find.

    She should be very proud of herself and her city.
