The Mayor of Toledo, Ohio has been castigated by the mainstream media for taking the decision to order 200 Michigan based Marines out of his town just before the unit was supposed to start a weekend of urban warfare training downtown.
Mayor Carty Finkbeiner expelled the members of Company A, 1st Battalion, 24th Marines from Grand Rapids, Michigan last Friday because he did not think it a good idea to have uniformed soldiers drilling in a highly visible area as it may have disrupted and frightened residents.
In addition, despite police knowledge of the scheduled exercises, the mayor told media that he was not informed of the exercises until the night before they were due to begin.
Police issued a press release earlier in the week saying the Marines would be wearing green camouflage uniforms, operate military vehicles, carry rifles, perform foot patrols, and fire blank ammunition during the exercise.
NBC also spoke to Jack Smith who recalled that after the Marines last visit, he and the mayor had a heated exchange about the training, during which the mayor told him he did not want marines "playing war in Toledo".
Mayor Finkbeiner said downtown, particularly on a weekday afternoon, was not suitable for military staging operations since up to 14,000 people would have been departing their office buildings at the same time. He also pointed out that thousands of schoolchildren would have been transferring buses downtown Friday just as the exercise would have begun, reported the Toledo Blade.
However, since the story broke, the mainstream media has enacted a sustained smear campaign against Finkbeiner. Check out the following one sided reports from CBS, Fox and CNN:
