This does not come as a surprise. Another piece of the post-riot follow-up I’m anxious to hear is what the businesses that were burned and/or looted going to do. Will they rebuild or not? The part that we’ll never know are the businesses that decide to not expand in Baltimore, or locate there in the first place, or that decide to leave the city. None of them will ever say their decision was because the Mayor thought it was OK to give the looters and burners space to destroy, but I don’t doubt but that the riots will have cost Baltimore future investments. If those businesses told the truth they’d be decried in the liberal media as racists, and so why should they bother? If it were me making a corporate investment decision I wouldn’t go anywhere near Baltimore.
