Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has fired Police Commissioner Anthony Batts.
Rawlings-Blake announced the firing in a news release Wednesday afternoon. She said Deputy Police Commissioner Kevin Davis will become interim commissioner.
Interesting. Police told to stand down and let them loot by the Mayor. Then the prosecutor over-charges 5 cops. Then when the crap really hits the fan, she fires the Top Cop.
Rawlings did not give a reason, but the move comes amid a spike in the city’s homicide rate. This city desperately needs some conservative leadership. Hopefully she will keep that in mind when finding a new commissioner, she probably won’t though.
Batts’ firing comes after he requested that an outside organization review the Baltimore Police Department’s response to recent rioting and civil unrest.
The person who should be fired is the idiot Mayor who gave the “stand down” order to the police so the thugs could loot and burn down their city. I am amazed that the good folks in city have not started a recall election on this incompetent dope.
#blackCrimeMatters. Pathetic waste of 50 years of Great Society money down the drain.
