$20 mln federal funding for Baltimore riots

Mayor of Baltimore Stephanie Rawlings-Blake intends to get compensation from the Federal government for the riots.

Rawlings-Blake, who was encouraging the riots in Baltimore by herself one month ago, claimed that the government should pay for the damage.

The city will apply for a $20 million Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) grant to replenish the "rainy day fund" being used to pay for cleanup and police overtime costs in the wake of the mayhem.

"In order to replenish this fund, we've already worked with the state to apply for a federal FEMA reimbursement, and we are confident that we will receive a significant reimbursement from the federal government," Rawlings-Blake said on Wednesday.
