Fox just reported when reporters asked police why they were not responding to stop the rioters, reporters were told by the officers, “Ask the Mayor”, clearly implying they had been told not to move by the Mayor.
On Saturday, we reported the now-infamous statement from the Mayor about giving the protester/rioters ‘space’ to destroy.
When Republican Governor Hogan declared a State of Emergency last night, he also made comment about how he was glad that the Mayor “finally” called him. The National Guard is only arriving this morning. Hogan said that Obama had asked that they exercise “due restraint”.
