First Baltimore Riot Bill Comes Due: $20,000,000 – Baltimore City Leadership Send Bill To FEMA, Forces All Americans To Pay….

It takes some kind of nerve to intentionally “provide space for people to destroy” a city, and then ask everyone who doesn’t live in the city to pay for it.

…”The $20 million estimate released by city officials does not include the cost to businesses of the unrest. The figure also does not include state or federal costs. It’s unclear when those figures will be tallied”…

Look closely at the business visited by Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings in this tweet she sent today:

You might remember this same business became a victim of Mayor Rawlings decision to allow the rioting mob “space to destroy”.

Now consider this – (Baltimore Sun) The recent rioting and unrest in Baltimore will cost the city an estimated $20 million, officials said Tuesday.

The expenses — which go before the city’s spending board for approval Wednesday — include overtime for police and firefighters, damage to city-owned property and repaying other jurisdictions for police and other assistance.

Henry J. Raymond, Baltimore’s finance director, said the city can temporarily cover the costs from its rainy day fund while seeking reimbursement for up to 75 percent from Federal Emergency Management Agency.

“The city remains on strong financial footing,” Raymond said. “Hopefully, with the FEMA reimbursement, it will reduce the financial stress that we’re under. In terms of the city’s overall revenue structure, we’re on firm footing and we’ll move forward.”

Both Gov. Larry Hogan and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake have requested federal aid.

Hogan has asked President Barack Obama to issue a disaster declaration so the city and state can be reimbursed for some expenses, officials said. Rawlings-Blake, meanwhile, encouraged city-based businesses to apply for aid from the U.S. Small Business Administration and the Baltimore Development Corp.  (read more)

        Thanks for the great link! I bookmarked it for future reference.
        D.C. has been making out like a bandit under o blah blah. The only one of these I found under “Emergency Declaration”:
        “January 13, 2009
        News Release
        President Announces Declaration For The District Of Columbia
        WASHINGTON, D.C. — The President today declared an emergency exists in the District of Columbia and ordered federal aid to supplement the District’s response efforts in support of the 56th Presidential Inauguration. The declaration makes available funding and support for the purposes of ensuring the District of Columbia and the federal government are optimally prepared and postured to respond to the 56th Presidential Inauguration, beginning on January 17 through January 21.”
        I didn’t see a cost listed.

          Wait, if FEMA wants to cover the Baltimore melt down under a terrorist act of some kind, doesn’t that mean that they will have to declare the ones who destroyed it “terrorists” and arrest them?

        Didn’t the Mayor give space to destroy- mainly in Mosby’s husband’s district?
        Didn’t the Mayor give the stand down order so the rioters could destroy?
        Won’t most of the rebuild then take place- reward Mr.Mosby’s district?
        Didn’t Mosby decide being arrested was good enough punishment for rioters?
        How is this not a conspiracy for fraud?

    I will repeat what I’ve said before, if her last name wasn’t “Rawlings” and her father wasn’t a kingmaker and one of the most powerful men in the Maryland legislature she wouldn’t have been elected dogcatcher. At least her father, Pete Rawlings had a modicum of common sense – which she and her brother (Wendell, who tried to enter politics based on his last name, but soon found out that no one cared since the old man was dead) obviously lack.

      Excellent point. You don’t want to know. When I saw the Chicago Housing Authority stats I nearly fainted. Then I got angry. It changed me forever. Add to that free health insurance, food stamps, phones and computers, school grants and loans (the latter which are probably rarely repaid), transportation, section 8 subsidies … it’s bad. We are forced to support these losers. And now we are forced to pay for the damage they inflict.

    FEMA is run by the same people who are running the riots. No, there will be no evidence of that, because we know they all use private emails, and it will be years before any of it sees the light of day. I expect FEMA will pay, and on time. Texas will face lawsuits. And, they have another full year or better to “destroy more space”. And, they will.
