The other lil detail was Valerie Jarrett talking to the Governor of Maryland. Sounds like that's something BO should have been doing.
Hogan should have said......what is this a joke or something. Put your boss on the damn phone.
If I recall correctly, during the riots in the 60s, many people were killed before it ended. During the riots in the 90s that followed the Rodney King beating, Chinese merchants protected their businesses by sitting on their roofs with shotguns to prevent looting and destruction. Does history have to repeat itself before a halt is put to this? Since it has now been termed a "State of Emergency" in Baltimore, can the National Guard be called in?
This is absolutely despicable. I don't care how mad you are about whatever, instead of killing cops and destroying public property actually be productive citizens. There is a reason why Baltimore is a s*** city, and this is it.

The past week of protests, riots and heavy-handed police tactic in Ferguson, Missouri after a white officer killed an unarmed black teenager have recalled America's dark history of race riots
Here is a rundown of incidents of racially-charged mayhem that have marked the United States since the 1960s.
- August 11-17, 1965: A routine identity check by police on two black men in a car sparks the Watts riots in Los Angeles, which leave 34 dead, 1,032 injured and cause more than $40 million worth of damage.
The trouble starts when Marquette Frye and his half-brother are stopped by police and taken in for questioning. Several thousand blacks surround the police station and, after a week of arson and looting, the Watts ghetto is all but destroyed.
- July 12-17, 1967: A heated dispute between two white police officers and a black taxi driver sets off rioting in Newark, New Jersey. For five days, in stifling summer heat, rioters wreck the district, leaving 26 dead and 1,500 injured.
- July 23-28, 1967: Race riots in Detroit, Michigan, kill 43 and leave more than 2,000 injured. Trouble spreads to Illinois, North Carolina, Tennessee and Maryland. The death toll in 128 cities nationwide for 1967 is 83 dead.
- April 4-11, 1968: After the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King in Memphis, Tennessee, violence erupts in 125 cities, leaving at least 46 dead and 2,600 injured. In Washington DC, then president Lyndon B. Johnson sends in the 82nd Airborne Division to quell riots.
