WOW!… This is just crazy…
Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said city officials decided to pay off the Freddie Gray family hoping it will prevent more rioting. The settlement will cost Baltimore $2.8 million this year and $3.6 million in 2016.
Democrat Rawlings-Blake defended the settlement saying the payoff could stop more riots:
Faced with the prospect of significant legal expenses involved in an extended federal lawsuit as well as the potential liability that could come with an unfavorable jury verdict, our city’s attorneys came to the conclusion that the $6.4 million is in the best interest of protecting taxpayers.
She’s hoping to buy off the mob!
