With No Help From Cops, Baltimore Man Guards His Restaurant All Night Long
Tune in to "Hannity" tonight at 10p ET to watch Sean's must-see interview with Baltimore business owner Tony Harrison
One restaurant owner stood guard outside of his Baltimore business overnight to protect it from protesters.
Nate & Tony's Midtown BBQ & Brew owner Tony Harrison was on “Fox and Friends” to explain that he saw video of a police line being breached and “realized that [authorities] weren’t going to be able to help us.” That's when he decided he would stand watch outside of his business instead.
Harrison said that he left his restaurant at one point. When he came back, a window was broken. He said he waited inside in the dark to protect his restaurant, but nothing further happened.
"Just to protect my place, I had a little bit of weaponry and of course my lovely [dog] Sasha," Harrison said.
Harrison said he’s disappointed in the way leaders have responded to the rioting which began in the wake of Freddie Gray's death.
“They utterly failed, they failed the businesses, they failed the communities, they failed their own police officers, who were unable to do a job without proper command,” Harrison said.
"I think a lot more damage occurred because of it, and I think a lot more bad feelings and emotional harm. And it's going to cost a lot more healing this city based upon the lackluster response of our mayor and her administration."
Harrison added that Nate & Tony's Midtown BBQ & Brew was open yesterday and is open today.
"We'd love to see anybody who wants to come by for some great barbecue and a good time."
