Maryland Lawmaker Wants To Take Food Stamps Away From Protesters
Maryland State Delegate Patrick McDonough wants to take food stamps away from families whose children protest the death of Freddie Gray.
In audio obtain[ed] by First Look’s Lee Fang, a caller on a Baltimore radio program asks McDonough why the government could not “take away benefits from families, from like the parents who are collecting welfare” if the protesters were “too young.”
“That’s an idea and that could be legislation,” McDonough volunteers. “I think that you could make the case that there is a failure to do proper parenting and allowing this stuff to happen, is there an opportunity for a month to take away your food stamps?”
