Yes, Mayor Blake's blessing to the chaos that has wrecked her city is verified.
I guess now we know what she'll be vehemently and mendatiously denying this afternoon or tomorrow:
Despite a firm denial by [Democrat] Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, a senior law enforcement source charges that she gave an order for police to stand down as riots broke out Monday night, raising more questions about whether some of the violence and looting could have been prevented.
The source, who is involved in the enforcement efforts, confirmed to Fox News there was a direct order from the mayor to her police chief Monday night, effectively tying the hands of officers as they were pelted with rocks and bottles.
Asked directly if the mayor was the one who gave that order, the source said: “You are God damn right it was.”
The claim follows criticism of the mayor for, over the weekend, saying they were giving space to those who “wished to destroy.”
I don't know if there's ever been a Tea Party rally in Baltimore, but if there ever is one, it will be interesting to see what orders Mayor Blake gives the BPD on that particular occasion. Somehow I suspect they'll be a lot more "muscular".
Incidentally, would you believe that she is also the (General) Secretary of the Democrat National Committee and vice president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, honors she was given following Barack Obama's 2012 re-election (h/t: VM) most likely by way of her complexion? Sheesh, at least with Bill Clinton she'd have had to blow him first.
