Baltimore, Maryland Mayor, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has come under fire following the mayhem and rioting seen in recent days in that city for words she spoke on giving space to destroy. She now claims she never said what has been clearly recorded coming from her own mouth.
Now, I could believe she did not mean what she said or her words came out wrong from what she actually meant to say, but to outright deny saying what has been clearly recorded?
And consider those youths and agitators in Baltimore hearing those same words?
The Mayor should admit what she said and clarify along with condemning the violence (which she has), but playing victim over what she clearly stated does nothing to help calm things down.
