Orioles Executive Vice President John Angelos, son of majority owner Peter Angelos, on Greensboro, North Carolina

"My greater source of personal concern, outrage and sympathy ...is focused upon the past four-decade period during which an American political elite have shipped middle class and working class jobs away from cities and towns around the U.S. to third-world dictatorships like China and others, plunged tens of millions of good hard-working Americans into economic devastation, and then followed that action around the nation by diminishing every American’s civil rights protections in order to control an unfairly impoverished population living under an ever-declining standard of living and suffering at the butt end of an ever-more militarized and aggressive surveillance state.

The innocent working families of all backgrounds whose lives and dreams have been cut short by excessive violence, surveillance, and other abuses of the Bill of Rights by government pay the true price, an ultimate price...

We need to keep in mind people are suffering and dying around the U.S...

There is a far bigger picture for poor Americans everywhere who don’t have jobs and are losing economic civil and legal rights, and this makes inconvenience at a ball game irrelevant in light of the needless suffering government is inflicting upon ordinary Americans.”
