BALTIMORE, MARYLAND — With protests in full swing, chaos and destruction have been plaguing the city. Videos are popping up all over YouTube that show just what has been going on.
Rioters in Baltimore hurled rocks at police, destroyed patrol cars and looted stores as demonstrations over the death of a black man in police custody turned violent Monday.
Police said 15 officers were injured, and two remained hospitalized Monday evening. Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan declared a state of emergency in the city and activated the National Guard to assist city and state police.
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake called the rioters “thugs” and said the city was imposing a 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew starting Tuesday.
This is a simple message: If you’re in the area of Baltimore, it’s best to stay away from any of these areas of distress as much as possible. It’s also probably a good idea to carry your firearm with you at all times.
PS: This isn’t the way to protest. You all look like fools.
