Maryland Gov. Hogan tangles with David Hogg over support for police, investment in minority communitiesHogan told Hogg that his crime-stopping measures are highly-popular in Baltimore: '[T]his is everyone in Baltimore having a different opinion than you.'

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, a Republican, got into a tense exchange with former Parkland student and gun control activist David Hogg at a Harvard Institute of Politics event Thursday night over Hogg's accusation that Hogan cares more about investing in police than helping minority communities.
...Hogg challenged Hogan on his support for police, saying "more than anything [gun violence] is a problem of systemic racism and historic injustice, given that the number one predictor of where gun violence occurs most in the United States is where communities were redlined in the 1930s and '40s." Hogg added that Hogan killed the planned light rail "Red Line" in Baltimore and refused to invest other money in "communities that are most affected by gun violence."
Hogan told Hogg that he agreed with him that more needs to be done on "root causes" of violence in the inner-city, but said those same inner-city residents support the governor's crime-stopping measures
"But while we 're working -- as we have, this takes decades to change -- while we're working to fix those problems we also have to stop the shootings and the murders and I can tell you that 90 percent of the residents of Baltimore City and 90 percent of the African Americans of Baltimore City supported my crime bills to crack down on the violent crime," Hogan said. "So this is not just me having a different opinion than you, this is everyone in Baltimore having a different opinion than you."

David Hogg will be collecting his grift as long as he has an audience.
