It’s Official: Police Were Ordered To Stand Down And Let The Baltimore Riots Rage Out Of Control

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Baltimore Riot Police - Public DomainWe now have official confirmation that the rioting in Baltimore on Monday was purposely allowed to spiral out of control.  Up until now, there had been some unconfirmed reports that police in Baltimore had been ordered to “stand down” during the riots, but nobody had been willing to come forward and go on the record.  Now that has all changed.  Michael Lewis is the Sheriff of Wicomico County, Maryland and what he has to say is absolutely jaw dropping.  When he saw what was happening in Baltimore, he gathered up some of his fellow officers and drove down to the city to help.  But when he got there, he says that all of the police were being ordered not to take any action and to let the rioters destroy property.  Lewis made this astounding claim during a discussion on a Baltimore radio station

A Maryland sheriff who traveled to Baltimore to help law enforcement stop Monday’s riots told 105.7 The Fan that he was stunned when officers alerted him of the orders to stand down.

Lewis says that he never heard the mayor give any particular orders, but he is very clear about the fact that the police were being instructed to “stand down” and to “let them destroy property“….

“I was sick to my stomach like everybody else. … This was urban warfare, no question about it. They were coming in absolutely beaten down. The [city officers] got out of their vehicles, thanked us profusely for being there, apologized to us for having to be there. They said we could have handled this, we were very capable of handling this, but we were told to stand down, repeatedly told to stand down,” he said. “I had never heard that order come from anyone — we went right out to our posts as soon as we got there, so I never heard the mayor say that. But repeatedly these guys, and there were many high-ranking officials from the Baltimore City Police Department … and these guys told me they were essentially neutered from the start. They were spayed from the start. They were told to stand down, you will not take any action, let them destroy property. I couldn’t believe it, I’m a 31-year veteran of law enforcement. … I had never heard anything like this before in my life and these guys obviously aren’t gonna speak out and the more I thought about this, … I had to say a few things. I apologize if I’ve upset people, but I believe in saying it like it is.”

The claims made by Lewis seem to be confirmed by “a senior law enforcement source” quoted by Fox News.  And this “senior law enforcement source” says that the order to stand down came directly from the mayor

Fox News is reporting — citing a senior law enforcement source who spoke with correspondent Leland Vittert — that Democratic Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake ordered police to allow rioters to loot stores Monday night, saying, “Let them loot, it’s only property.”

“This is coming from a very senior law enforcement official with direct knowledge of the orders that were given by the mayor and by her police commanders, down to the very core of the police riot units,” Vittert said on “Your World with Neil Cavuto” Wednesday afternoon. “What I am quoting now from him is, quoting the mayor, ‘Let them loot, it’s only property.’”

If this is true, this is not just a minor scandal.  If what these law enforcement officers are saying is accurate, this is a scandal of monumental proportions.

And could it be possible that the scandal goes even higher?  Did Rawlings-Blake speak to anyone before making this decision?  Could the Obama administration be involved somehow?

In a previous article entitled “12 Unanswered Questions About The Baltimore Riots That They Don’t Want Us To Ask“, I noted that Rawlings-Blake has very close ties to the Obama administration.  Could it be possible that Rawlings-Blake was told to order the police to stand down by someone in the White House?

What we do know at this point is that after public schools were let out on Monday afternoon, high school kids were forced to get off of buses and herded into the Mondawmin mall area where the “purge” that had been hyped on social media was supposed to take place.

We also know that police dressed in full riot gear were waiting for them.

But then once the rioting started, the police pulled back and let it rage wildly out of control.

This all seems very orchestrated to me.

And were they specifically ordered to not even defend their own police vehicles?  On Monday afternoon, there were lots of police vehicles conveniently parked along the streets right in the middle of the riot zones.  But the police officers that those vehicles belonged to were nowhere to be seen.  So why didn’t the police protect their own vehicles?  This all seems very strange.

Dramatic images of police vehicles being smashed and burning wildly have now been seen by hundreds of millions of people all over the planet, and those images send a very powerful message.

Of course the biggest victims in all of this are the impoverished African-American communities where the worst of the rioting took place.  The police were ordered to stand down while these African-American neighborhoods were vandalized, looted and set on fire.  Many businesses that were destroyed will choose to never rebuild, and many others that did survive will flee as soon as they can.  In the end, those neighborhoods will be much worse off than they were before.

So did mayor Rawlings-Blake (or someone above her) purposely betray those communities?

The American people deserve some answers, because this is a very big deal.

First we saw this happen in Ferguson, and now it has happened in Baltimore.

When riots and looting break out where you live, will the police be ordered to “stand down” as well?

Chaos has come to America, and it is only going to get worse.  I hope that you are getting prepared for what comes next.

    I really believe the riots are psy-ops.

  • K

    I know for many people this is a hard story to believe. But I know it is true. This has all been in the works a long time. The Government has one goal, to set you at each others throats. After that they will come in, and pick up the pieces. For those of you who just can not believe this, there is nothing I can do to change your minds. For those of you have seen the truth. Finish your preps, time is short.

    • MichaelfromTheEconomicCollapse

      Very well said K.

    • Orac4Prez

      …And in a few years the administration will use the Chinese troops (or other foreign troops currently on your soil) to handle the situation. It might be hard to get Americans to fire on fellow Americans, but foreign “peacekeepers” wouldn’t be so concerned about local casualties. My dad lived in Germany (as a child) during the war and Hitler used the psychotic SS from the Baltic states and Ukraine to ensure Berliners complied. There we plenty of people shot and/or strung up on power lines in his street and left there as a warning!

      • Historycurious

        “My dad lived in Germany (as a child) during the war and Hitler used the psychotic SS from the Baltic states and Ukraine to ensure Berliners complied.”


        “It might be hard to get Americans to fire on fellow Americans,”

        You haven´t kept up with the news or dealth with the NSA that much, have you?

        • Orac4Prez

          1. Hitler did use the SS from out of Germany in Berlin. Better go back to the history books! There were pleanty of collaborators in Europe and Hitl;er used writings from Henry Ford in his speeches… You’re full of Crap.

          2. We know exactly what the NSA is up to, and the US government for that matter (like using the FUNVax in the middle east). They know the biochemical mechanism is not to suppress the “fundamentalism” gene.

          3. Why do you think the US is letting Iran keep its Fusor? They can make plenty of tritium (neutron source) and thus reduce the amount of uranium 235 needed for a bomb!

          The police might shoot one or two people but do you think they would want to be part of a Tiananmin Square type massacre?

  • Erik Benkow

    Thanks Obama!

    • df NJ

      Thanks George W!

    • Kansas Bright

      Actually it is all of them, not just those that serve as US Presidents as all branches and the states were given constitutional ways to stop the other branches. Since it has not been done they are either complicit or also traitors to America.

      I believe it is the second option.

  • Cesare

    Of course they were ordered to stand down. No sense in harming their own agents provocateurs

  • Gay Veteran

    and why was Mondawmin Mall left unprotected and thus looted

    • jakartaman

      Duh – Ask the mayor!

    • eastedie33510

      Because the “stand down order” came from a phone call from Obama and the new DOJ Loretta Lynch. Thus the mayor who knows Obama gave the order.

  • jakartaman

    Hope the business owners sue the city for gross incompetence and dereliction of their duties. A black controlled liberal city – They need some adult supervision

    • Guest

      Uh, did you read the article? Allegedly, it wasn’t “gross incompetence” that led to the rioting.

      • grumpyhillbilly

        No it wasn’t incompetence. It was intentional, which is presumably better grounds for a lawsuit. Love the progressive mind – the cops are the big bad, and yet perfectly follow orders from the politicians.

    • HeyAHuman

      It looks like their plan is working on the dumbed-down, racist sheep like you.

      • jakartaman

        Ya – your right.
        Its whitey’s fault.
        We need to give them more welfare
        We need to give out more EBT cards
        We need to give out more free phones
        We need to lower scores for Affirmative action.
        Here is a clue – The black problems in this country are the blacks self-induced problems – Blacks will need to fix black problems – Personal responsibility is at the core. Enough blaming others (we have a president that does this a lot too) no more excuses.
        We been at this for 60 years with little results – What more do these low IQ people want whitey to do for them????

        • RageHard84

          Jakartaman – are you Indonesian by any chance?

          I’ve no Indonesian blood myself, but I do have some Malayo-Polynesian heritage.

        • Typical Anti-Racist

          Racysss! U must suxx @ life!

          Their low IQ is obviously because of veiled racism, White Privilege, the legacy of slavery and microagressions by White people.
          Africa never had black civilization because zebras and local buffalos cannot be domesticated.
          Also, it would rise quickly if they were given even more trillions of welfare and affirmative action.
          Sadly, racists like yourself stiill believes blacks should be held accountable, judged for their behaviour when White people and society should be held accountable foir this behaviour instead.

          • RageHard84

            Sound like a troll doing a caricature of anti-racists. That being said, I honestly don’t think the answer is more welfare and affirmative action. Welfare creates dependency, blacks need to be more self-sufficient. As for affirmative action, the real answer is to fix education in the inner city.

      • RageHard84

        In one of Snyder’s other articles, he talked about older blacks being disgusted by what they’re seeing. I know not all blacks are into this nonsense. I reject the racist notion that this behavior is in their genetics. However, I also do not endorse “blaming whitey” or any of that nonsense either.

        • LOL

          Must be why black Africa is the richest and most developed continent.

          Why crime stats shows that blacks are far more crimes than other racial groups just not in the USA but in western europe as well.
          Even in Russia, that never had to deal with black slavery.
          Violent black riot in Guanghzou too.

          What you reject is the truth.

          • RageHard84

            In Africa there’s a lot of corruption. The issue could also be culture, not genetics.
            Another thing too, aren’t blacks discriminated against in Russia and China?

        • HeyAHuman

          Who said anything about “blaming whitey”? I’m just amazed the amount of racism that this psy op successfully brings out of the woodwork. And I specifically targeted this man because I’ve seen repeated occasions of outright evil posts made by him.

          • RageHard84

            It’s not like this particular post of his was really racist. Maybe he shouldn’t have brought up the fact that the city was black, but the leadership of said city is not very competent.

    • RageHard84

      If they don’t sue the city they may just leave, upping the local unemployment rate. An increase in local unemployment is bad for the politicians.

    • laura m.

      The police should have just stayed home or ditched out of town, being unavailable, laying out sick, or family emergency, etc. like they did during Katrina. Another slum city like New O. obviously. Orac: totally agree with you, makes sense 110%. Probably Muslim jihadists (posing as refugees brought here) or Mexicans could also be used for Gestapo round ups, executions, and pay them like a regular job.

      • Wyragen

        The “children” brought to the US, clearly coordinated effort by the federal governement (as exposed on Breitbart) and traffickers, gang recruitement is rife among them.
        Obviously, when Operation American Freedom begins, they could be used by the feds as foot soldiers.

  • SunnyFlaSnotress

    Personally, I’d rather see people beat on a store, than beat on an innocent. If that’s what is needed to vent, then that’s the better way.

    • eastedie33510

      However, a white man who was leaving CVS before it was set on fire was beaten by the looters. He is in ICU and may/may not live.

  • Bill

    Just wonder if “stand down” kept a lot of gasoline from being thrown on the fire, but “busing to the mall is very strange.

  • ebt

    another incompetent unqualified politician,wow, what a shocker,this chick couldn’t run the deli at Walmart much less a major city,cannot imagine what folks were thinkin electing her

      That was not incompetency, it was treason and terrorism against the American people and the US Constitution being used to destroy the USA from within.

    Isaiah 1:5-7 Why should ye be stricken any more? ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment. Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.

    For through Him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.

    Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

    In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.


    • algol2000

      This is a lie from Paul. The only foundation is Christ Himself. He told Peter; thou art cephas(a rock), but upon this(myself) foundation shall I build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Jesus is not a mere cornerstone.
      HE IS THE ONLY FOUNDATION ON WHICH TRUTH IS BUILT. Paul’s fraud was so that he may ingratiate himself into the minds of believers and lead them astray. Did he succeed? Absolutely yes; with those who hold religious dogma as sacrosanct.

      • GSOB

        “Paul’s fraud was so that he may ingratiate himself into the minds of believers and lead them astray. Did he succeed? Absolutely yes; with those who hold religious dogma as sacrosanct.”

        • algol2000

          Well said. Did Christ not say that he who will be a disciple must carry his cross and follow Christ? Then where do you get the term “christians” in all this? Group-think is a dangerous thing, and Paul knew how to use this weapon. But if we must follow Christ, it is an individual’s mission and has nothing to do with religion or “christianity” as you put it. Was Emperor Constantine not a christian? I am sorry, brother, but there is no “we” in Christ. There are only disciples whose deeds and actions tend towards righteousness because they know that there is a price to pay in the discipleship of Jesus Christ. It is an individual price and choice.

          Enter ye in through the narrow way, for broad is the way that lead to destruction, and many are on that highway. However, narrow and treacherous is the way that leads to life, and there be few that find it.

            I am already in the water, swimming against the tide called popular opinion. We are not all made to drink of one spirit, for this is by choice. Those who must drink must also be ready to receive the baptism of fire with tribulation.

            And yes, all are welcome, as told by Jesus regarding the parable of the Son’s Marriage. Many wayfarers are invited, but without the right garment most will be cast into outer darkness, and there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

            To stay in His presence, one must have on the right garment. It is called righteousness. The kind you get by depending absolutely on God as a little child depends on his parents, and following His commandments.

    Don’t stand down, you have a duty to the citizens that abide by the law, not a mayor that thinks she can issue an executive order to allow chaos to reign, who is she going to arrest for not following orders but for following the rule of law eaxactly?


    One word: RECALL. The Mayor. The Chief of Police. Out.

    How closely was this being watched by the Obama administration? How many drones were silently watching and studying the “mistakes” and “successes” of the mobs? Baltimore was a learning experience as was Ferguson. Wait until the up coming long Memorial Day and July 4th weekends. And notice the Palestinian flags all over the place, at least in the NYC “protests”. My opinion is that these riots aren’t to stir up minorities. That’s easy. One little word will make the black community blow. Its to get the average person riled up to the point of pure hatred. To have us tap in to something we never have tapped into. There are more whites than minorities but the worlds stomach does not turn when whites get killed, raped or tortured. Let the white population turn into crazed, blood thirsty mobs and then the world will need to “take action”. Everyone who reads this blog is well aware that we have tuned the corner and are nearing, or at the point we never wanted to see. Hopefully these events will not force us into a corner. The anger is brewing. Turning into satanic hatred my not be as hard as these a-holes want.
    And Michael, thank you for helping me personally see the light on many different levels. Not just on this blog either. The time is rapidly approaching and your helping me and my family is appreciated more than you can imagine.

  • eastedie33510

    Obama and Loretta Lynch both spoke with the Baltimore mayor late Monday afternoon when the riots just started. That is where the order of “Stand down” to the police started. Obama wants civil unrest. It gives him a reason the federalize police departments and institute martial law.

  • Chuck

    Back to HeyAHuman. Stop trolling this site. To ignore the fact that this situation is a direct result of racist separatism encouraged by major sections of the black community and so-called “black leaders”, including Obama, is ridiculous. Stop your liberal blather, pal. Responsible blacks know exactly what is going on and deplore it as much as whites, Get your head out of your behind and stop calling people racists because they simply tell the truth.

  • RageHard84

    It sounded unbelievable at first, but then I remembered that one politician wanted to give rioters space to destroy property. The question is, why? There are a lot of crazy conspiracy theories out there, but between this and Obama’s scandals, conspiracy theorists now have plenty to work with.

    • huh ?

      … convenient excuse to start declaring martial law and rounding-up guns and owners !

      • RageHard84

        It’s possible.

  • JMO

    Rawles is a hand picked marxist by Obama, one of 3 Mayors heading up a task force meant to create a FEDERAL POLICE FORCE. Also, the State’s Attorney married a Baltimore councilmen and Grays family attorney donated 4 K to Mosby’s campaign last year. ALL OF THIS IS STAGED. The stand down order. Inciting riots nationwide is also the goal.

  • huh ?

    They need to not only get convictions, but start executing these cops to set examples … that will cause police to think before acting in the future.

  • alan

    Next month this will happen all over again.

    There is a lot going on with this problem. There is an economic collapse, police state and divide and conquer mixed together.

    The media won’t report bad economic news, or the banker theft, or criticize the constant bombing of the Middle East. But if a cop raises his hand and the person is Black, look out! Yes killing of people for no reason is bad, but the media over looked this for the past 250 years, so why now?

    It seems TPTB are trying to dupe the public into a revolt for some reason.
    Just my 2 cents for what its worth.

  • These riots aren’t going to stop. They are going to spread from city to city, as they are designed and fomented to do. Today is May 1, 2015. May the 1st is, incidentally, “May Day,” the international day of solidarity for the nihilists, atheists and all other subversive organizations who were organized into one collective destructive force by Sir Adam Weishaupt, Jesuit priest and professor of canon law at Ingolstadt University, who officially founded the Bavarian branch of the Order of Illuminati on May 1, 1776.

    In 1829, Weishaupt’s illuminist disciples, Wright, Roosevelt, Greeley, Dana, Pike, Marx and Engels, further postulated and formulated this international destructive force, and called it “Communism.”

    Communism was intended to unite all subversives worldwide to be used as a collective force of change to enable the Illuminati to foment future wars, conflicts and revolutions, for the ultimate purpose of destroying all existing religions, governments, monarchies and nation states, in order to bring about a new world empire based upon the foundation of, according to Albert Pike, the “pure Luciferian doctrine.”

    You can see the plan coming into fruition now.

  • Heisenberg

    Of course the mayor is a communist, socialist, liberal. But she is a politician. And we all know the first priority of a politician is to get re-elected. The very people that were rioting were the people that elected her. She probably campaigned on issues that got black people to the polls. If she would have allowed the cops to squash the riot she would have been seen as just part of the white establishment or a puppet thereof. And there goes her re-election. She did what any black mayor or black president would have done.

    I really don’t understand all this hatred why can’t we all as people just get alone SMH it’s very sad that people still judging by race yeah the Caucasian people had some thing against us blacks in put us into slavery years ago yeah the justice legal system are jacked up but until we all come together as one we will forever be divided you can’t make other see you how you see your self if you still running around blaming the next person for your problem you have to start within the past is the past let it go I have no problem with no one or no race because all white aren’t racism just like all blacks aren’t criminals I’m prayin for you all in specially the people in Baltimore I just pray that one day everyone once day will open their eyes in see that it’s not about the color of your skin it’s what lay within its not about your background it’s about what you doing now to better your self in your future not all blacks are on welfare some white Muslim Chinese etc are too u don’t have to be black to get a helping hand but hey untill you guys understand that the world we living in today will forever be divided if everybody stop been concerned about what the next person got in how they got it it will forever be racism SMH just live love in laugh because tomorrow is never promise in you don’t want to live life mad with hated in your heart wasting your life over something you can’t change because everybody have their on opinion

  • dsd1

    here’s the game:

    the police are told to “stand down” to ensure the riots get out of control and make it look as if the police are incompetent and cannot handle the situation (why else did they leave perfectly fine police cars in strategic places for great photo ops of them being stomped on and burned etc) it’s all a show baby!

    then they have the national guard (i.e. the militarized police force controlled by the FEDERAL government standing near by – off camera of course)

    once the riots are suitably active and out of control and suspiciously organized by the same many social media accounts that organized the ferguson riots – hmmmm coincidence? i think not – right valerie jarrett ; )

    THEN ta-da! the federal government “calls in” the national guard (i.e. solders) who then calm things down and it looks exactly like they want it to…

    1. that the local i.e. STATE government is incompetent and cannot handle itself
    2. the FEDERAL government comes in to save the day and restore order to all the bleating liberal sheep calling for help to save them.

    it’s just amazing that most Americans are so completely stupid to not see the same game being played on them again and again – and soon enough the Federal government will anoint itself the new “federal police” powers they so desperately want and the transition to a full Dictatorship will be complete.

  • dag

    Black protesters are the “useful idiots” of choice used by the powers that be to create mini-insurrections, social disturbances, “false flags,” etc.;

    Black political figures and spokesmen/women (black U. S. President, black U. S. Attorney-General, black Secretary of Homeland Security, black mayor of Baltimore, black Attorney-General of Maryland, Congressional Black Caucus, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Oprah, etc.) provide the “moral” camouflage for the call for the elimination of democratic rights and the establishment of a fascist government.

    America will experience the social chaos and destruction that it has caused many of the world’s people. American blacks, former slaves, will usher in this chaos – how ironic.
