Midtown BBQ & Brew owner Tony Harrison was on “Fox and Friends” to explain that he saw video of a police line being breached and “realized that [authorities] weren’t going to be able to help us.” That’s when he decided he would stand watch outside of his business instead.

Harrison said that he left his restaurant at one point. When he came back, a window was broken. He said he waited inside in the dark to protect his restaurant, but nothing further happened.

Harrison said he’s disappointed in the way leaders have responded to the rioting which began in the wake of Freddie Gray’s death.

“They utterly failed, they failed the businesses, they failed the communities, they failed their own police officers,” Harrison said.
