In Baltimore, in anticipation of rioting, the police prepared for the inevitable. They were ready for violence, they were ready for mob control, and they were well aware of the elements of radicalism that would attempt to fan the flames of hate. What the Baltimore PD was not ready for was the instructions by the mayor that they would not suit up in riot gear, that they would not use non-lethal measures to defend themselves, and that they were to allow looting and burning without intervening!
