CNN anchor blames military vets for Baltimore riots: "They are ready to do battle”

During an interview with U.S. Representative Elijah Cummings (D-MD), CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin blamed returning military veterans for the Baltimore riots saying "they are ready to do battle.”

Cummings: “Another thing that has to be done here, is we’ve really got to look at our police department.”

Baldwin: “But in what sense? We talk about training, we talk about having officers — I was talking to the city councilman here last week. He said, ‘Brooke, these people have to live in the communities… or there’s a lack of emotional investment.’

“And a lot of these young people — I’ve been talking about this so much. A lot of young people — and I love our nation’s veterans, but some of them are coming back from war, they don’t know the communities, and they are ready to do battle.”

Cummings: “Yeah they definitely need training,better training, and they need better recruitment."

Baldwin has tried to clarify her remarks on Twitter:
