Baltimore: National Guard Deployed to 'Provide Humanitarian Assistance'

National Guard Humvees with what appear to be LRAD crowd control devices on top were pictured in downtown Baltimore on Friday and triggered fears of martial law.

Nonetheless, Baltimore Mayor Jack Young insists the National Guard were only called in to "provide humanitarian assistance" to the public.

The Maryland National Guard said Friday evening that "there is not a threat of martial law."

"If you see a [Maryland National Guard] Humvee on your street, know we are helping someone in need!"

No explanation was given for why LRADs are needed to distribute food.

Here's a clue as to what may be the city's real concerns.

On Wednesday, the mayor begged residents to stop shooting each other so the city's hospital beds could be used for coronavirus patients.

Seven people were injured in a mass shooting on Tuesday and another 4 people were shot on Wednesday in 3 separate shootings.

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan ordered the closure of malls and entertainment venues on Thursday to fight the spread of the coronavirus but stopped short of issuing a state-wide curfew.

Nonetheless, some Baltimore residents have already vowed to defy a curfew if one is implemented.
