Obtuse in Toledo

Police: Ohio Riot Was Worse Than Expected

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- Police began receiving word midweek that gangs were going to descend on a neighborhood where a riot erupted over a planned march by a white supremacist group, but the resulting disturbance was worse than expected, the police chief said Sunday.

The riot broke out Saturday when protesters confronted members of the National Socialist Movement who had gathered at a city park. Rioters threw baseball-sized rocks at police, vandalized vehicles and stores, and set fire to a neighborhood bar, authorities said. More than 100 people were arrested and one officer was seriously injured

Authorities want to determine why protesters turned their anger toward police after the Nazi group left, Lucas County Sheriff James Telb said.
Here’s a clue:
Officers who work in the area reported that gang members were planning to turn out in force

Pretty sad that the racist scum were the only mart ones in the whole story huh?

The headline said the riot was worse than expected? Oh, by whom? Someone expected a riot? Why weren't the police and national guard out in force before it started?

Either the municipal officials screwed up big time or the editor doesn't understand the english language.
