MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow worries that Baltimore riot COPS are ‘out of control’

MSNBC’s far-left liberal host Rachel Maddow has proven once again that she’s incapable of seeing anything outside the scope of her narrow ideological prism.

As angry mobs continue to taunt police officers and terrorize the streets of Baltimore, Maddow concluded during her coverage of the riots on Monday that it’s the police who are “out of control.”

Maddow was interviewing Erica Green of the Baltimore Sun who reported that an officer was injured after being struck in the head with a brick by rioters. The officer had to be immediately taken for medical attention.

Green said fellow officers at the scene threw bricks back at the violent mob in retaliation.

Maddow called Green’s report “striking” particularly because “you don’t expect police to be throwing bricks.”

Maddow tried unsuccessfully to get Green to agree by shaping the narrative.

“If they’re picking up things that are being thrown at them and throwing them back, that implies to me, just a lay observer, that the police feel … that the police are a little bit out of control, or that they may not be using disciplined police tactics,” Maddow said.

“Was that your perspective?”

Green, who’s been following the riots extensively, did not take Maddow’s bait.

Instead, she echoed the widespread sentiment that police in Baltimore have exhibited enormous restraint under challenging circumstances.

“I watched the police have things hurled at them for a very long time, and they didn’t do anything… I mean, these kids have no fear,” Green said.
