Too bad they have no plans to stop ignoring the real story of September 11 2001.

“What the hell? We should just take all this sh-t down. You can smell the rats. Oh my G-d, you can smell the dead animals.” Baltimore mayor Catherine Pugh
“This morning, I left my community of Baltimore – a drug-infested area where a lot of the drugs we are talking about today have already taken the lives of so many children. The same children that I watched 14 or 15 years ago as they grew up, now walking around like zombies.” Rep. Elijah Cummings
