Baltimore Demands Taxpayers Pay $30.5 Million For Riot Cleanup – FEMA Says No!


Maryland officials assumed that taxpayers would cover the $30.5 million in damages caused by the rioting earlier this year – FEMA said no, you burnt down your city, you pay for it.

Riots break out in Baltimore

In a letter sent on June 12 , Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator W. Craig Fugate told Maryland officials that federal aid for cleanup in the aftermath of the rioting “is not appropriate for this event.”

“Therefore, I must inform you that your request for a major disaster declaration is denied,” Fugate concluded.

Why should taxpayers cover the bill for rioting that Mayor Rawlings-Blake invited when she said she wanted to give the rioters “the space to destroy if they want to.” 

Have Al Sharpton and Obama chip in to cover the expenses.

  1. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake invited thugs to riot when she left them “space to destroy.” Afterall, it was “only property.” Let Blake & the Democrat party pay for the damages they invited upon the city. To all Baltimore business owners: GET OUT WHILE YOU CAN!

    • Agree. Rawlings and her gang need to fork over some of their bucks. If City sinks it sinks. Rioters csn relocate to Newark or Camden…whoops! They are already burned out and a wreck.

  2. Good. I don’t wanna pay for something that I didn’t do. Baltimore needs to clean up it’s own flippin mess.

    Not only that, but if the mess isn’t cleaned up because the people of Baltimore cant pay for it, then it shouldn’t be fixed. Maybe the people will learn that riots won’t solve anything, and instead make their lives more miserable.

    I mean really, the majority of people that were rioting are blacks. The majority of buildings damaged, are owned….by blacks. Where is the logic in that?

    Why should I have to pay for such idiocy?

  3. I am so glad that FEMA isn’t going to pay for this.. They destroyed it, they let it be destroyed.. They can pay for it to be rebuilt on their own.. Sorry for the business owners and residents this affected and left devastated.. But FEMA money is for actual disaster’s not man made bullshit!!

  4. Hmmm…like maybe
    …arrest the rioters and garnish their welfare payments to pay for it? Or heaven forbid out them to work and garnish their wages…just sayin.

  5. Haaa haaa ha ha haaaaaaa!!!! No government bailout for Baltimore.

    Make the blacks who did the rioting pay for all the damage. That really is the only fair way to do it.

  6. I have only one point to make if in fact they do not have the money to fix their city back from what I understand most are drop outs and do not attend school nor do they have jobs I say it is Volunteer time.
