He’s just pissed because he couldn’t play with his MRAP

BALTIMORE (CBS BALTIMORE) — 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.
Michael Lewis is the Sheriff in Wicomico County, and was also a Sergeant with the Maryland State Police. He joined Ed Norris and Steve Davis on Thursday to talk about the alleged controversial orders the police were given during the riots.
Lewis said it wasn’t his intention to come to Baltimore, a drive of about two hours, but he felt it was his duty to help.
“I hadn’t planned to go to Baltimore at all. I watched the events unfold Saturday night like we all did, and was very concerned about what I saw, and the the lack of response Saturday night,” he said. “I immediately rallied up the troops. We made sure our MRAP was prepared and ready. … We were assigned to assigned to protect Baltimore City Police headquarters, all of E. Fayette Street up to City Hall, to include City Hall. There wasn’t a whole lot of activity taking place at all. We could smell that putrid smell of burning tires and a city on fire when as we came into the city. Had lots of concerns like everyone else. We maintained our post all night long until we were relieved.”


Rallied the troops? Got his MRAP ready? Damn, if he wanted to be a soldier, why didn’t join the military or stayed in if he was a Vet?

    “Putrid” smell of burning tires? Did the burning tires smell like a week old corpse? Dafuq, mang?

    Awww…there was gun play and Tackleberry missed it.

    Though it would be nice to see how easy it is to light one of those things on fire.

    Sounds like a dipshit with a General Patton complex. And people wonder why some are concerned about the militarism of police.

    Local taxpayers that paid for that trip ought to be pissed! He wasn’t called to help so he should pay out of his own pocket.
