Report: Baltimore Riots

As Martin Luther King said, “A riot is the language of the unheard,” and these riots are only the symptom of a dangerous disease. 50 years ago, riots erupted within this very same city, in the name of the aforementioned man after his tragic assassination. This time, events are hauntingly parallel, where the riots have come merely days after the death and funeral of Freddie Gray, a young 25-year-old black man. Perhaps it is the same issue which still angers people.
