Gov. Larry Hogan of Maryland promised an “overwhelming display” of law enforcement in Baltimore on Tuesday to prevent a repeat of the riots a day earlier, when the city was convulsed by looting, fires and clashes between the police and angry crowds.
Speaking to reporters on Tuesday morning, Hogan said that additional police, fire and National Guard officers would be on duty.
“By tonight, you’re going to see an overwhelming display of people out there on the streets protecting the citizens,” he said. “What happened last night is not going to happen again.”
The governor, a Republican, said that he respected the rights of protesters upset over the death of Freddie Gray, who suffered a spinal cord injury in police custody.
