After Baltimore’s first round of rowdy protests on Saturday, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake came under fire for saying that the city gave people “who wished to destroy” space to do so.Here's the video of her putting her foot into her mouth:
“I worked 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,” Rawlings-Blake said to the media Saturday evening.
“It’s a very delicate balancing act because while we tried to make sure that they 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.”
On Monday, at another news conference on the riots that broke out in the streets following Freddie Gray’s funeral, Rawlings-Blake said she was misunderstood.
Have the savages start at your house Mayor.
