Baltimore is burning and Sheriff David Clarke thinks he knows why.
As you know by now, riots are ongoing (as of this writing, anyway) in Baltimore, Maryland. It’s another outburst of uncivilized behavior in response to a perceived civil wrong.
On Fox News, Neil Cavuto asked Sheriff Clarke if he thought it was a good idea to cancel tonight’s baseball game in response to the riots.
“Well, for the safety of the fans, I think they’re going to have to, unfortunately,” he replied. “Public safety comes first.”
Then, he waxed.
“But, you know Neil, the thing that — like Baltimore, like Ferguson, like New York and many other areas, where failed liberal government policies have led to high unemployment, chronic poverty, failing schools,” Clarke said. “This is what besets the Baltimore area. Ninety percent of the homicide victims in the Baltimore area are black as are 90% of the suspects.”
Clarke went on to say that the people who are rioting in Baltimore right now would shoot and kill Freddie Gray for bumping into them on the dance floor.
