Fox News reporter Leland Vittert had a brief exchange with Al Sharpton and Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.

Vittert said he wanted Rawlings-Blake to answer a number of questions about the rioting over the past few days in the wake of Freddie Gray’s death. He said he asked: What do you have to say to the number of officers injured, and what do you have to say to businesses that were looted during a reported “stand down” order?

“Why can’t we ask questions?” Vittert asked.

Rawlings-Blake remained silent while Sharpton said they’d answer questions at the press conference.

Vittert added that he asked officers who “shoved [him] out of the way” why they were protecting the mayor from simple questions, yet decided not to protect businesses from rioters.
