Police Commissioner: Rioters ‘Came Right Out Of The High Schools’

Where are the parents?

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — City Police Commissioner Anthony Batts told reporters late Monday night that a bulk of the rioters who pelted officers with rocks and bricks, inciting a massive display of looting and vandalism across parts of West Baltimore were area high schoolers.

“These are Baltimore youthful residents, a number of them came right out of the local high schools there on the other side of Mondawmin and started engaging in this,” said Batts. “I think these were youth coming out of the high school and they thought it was cute to throw cinder blocks at the police department and address it that way.”

Fifteen police officers were injured, six seriously, in the violence. One officer was knocked unconscious by the blows from flying debris, and others were said to have suffered broken bones. Batts said he thanked the officers he saw being treated in Shock Trauma.

  1. Well, we witnessed a parent acting as one, The mother who slapped her son silly, and made him go home, as he acted as one of these thugs. Sadly, it took a mom, and not a dad. She should be lauded for her actions. Too bad Obama did not focused on her during his six point speech today, instead of blaming the police force, for the ills of this country. We need to target the root of this evil that exists today. Target the absentee dads.
