Baltimore Protestors have the "Freedom to Destroy"


After peaceful protests in Baltimore began giving way to riots, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake held a Saturday press conference, where she explained her thinking about law-enforcement tactics.

“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,” she said.

“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.”
