    What do u guys think of what's happening in Baltimore? I think the riots are right but the violence, break ins aren't. Police brutality has been going on for a while now

    Riots are never right! Protests and Riots are completely different. protesting is a good thing but these people rioting are a disgrace!

    Everyone needs to have their voice heard. Yes its true, but acting like holligan's etc won't get you far. I believe some is just using this opportunity to act out. There are more peaceful ways to do this

    The mayor definitely misspoke.

    "It’s a very delicate balancing act. Because while we tried to make sure that they were protected from the cars and other things that were going on, we also gave those who wished to destroy space to do that as well"

    It's a damn shame a justifiable anger devolves into anarchy, destruction and looting. And that message of the initial wrong is lost over the criminal element.

    I'm not sure that's a proper protestl yet, police should be afraid of the people. Trucks of LE were surrounded in this protest. If the cops/national guard started shooting, people would get killed but all the LE will be cut to pieces. Guilty!

    I get what your saying but they aren't getting their voices heard. If I'm not mistaken Ferguson protests were peaceful but it didn't make no difference. Its really a shame

    Nay,the peeps burned Ferguson,too. The message is lost when the lawlessness takes over. It's really a failure of leadership. Mobilized masses effect change. Mobs are only concerned with their own greedy self interest.

    I'm sure lots of the gangs took advantage of the anger and harvested it into this riot. It ain't right and the
    Man, much respect to that man.

    I don't know. Usually incompetence explains the failure more than some grand conspiracy.

    What do u want em to do? How far is a peaceful protest gona get you though? Shit been going on for so long. Countless acts of murder, it would've been alright if these cops would be charged with the crime they committed but it goes unaccounted for. Black lifes matter.

    More white people are killed by cops than black people in America.Fact.
    All lifes matter.
    The looting isn't an answer;it's an excuse. As the gentleman in the video that I posted earlier said, this doesn't honor Freddy Gray.
    Stealing booze, looting malls,and burning churches deserve a boot in their *** not a ear to hear.

    I'm more worried about airplanes crashing and earthquakes killing more than 4000 lives.

    You're right.
    I'll not donate a penny to Baltimore but Nepal deserves assistance.
