Baltimore blues

The Baltimore riots story keeps getting worse. First, a Maryland Eastern Shore county sheriff said he "was sick to my stomach" when he was told to stand down, in other words, do nothing, as the opportunistic brutes rioted in front of him.

Last weekend Baltimore's leftist mayor, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake authorized police to "give those who wished to destroy space to do that."

Normally I would dismiss a story such as this one, but since it comes from the liberal Washington Post, it bears notice. A fellow prisoner in the van where Freddie Gray rode in claims that the now-deceased man was "trying to injure himself."

Could it be that Gray--who had a long arrest record--was harming himself in order to fabricate a police attack on him so he could collect on a lawsuit? Are the thugs and professional protesters rioting over a lie?
