Rioting Is Not Worse Than Killing Blacks
By Chidike Okeem
After the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray at the hands of police officers, rioting and looting broke out across the city of Baltimore, Maryland. Stores were unceremoniously burned down and businesses were destroyed. The violence was to such a degree that the National Guard had to be deployed to Baltimore in an attempt to quell the chaos. Unpredictably, many mainstream conservatives, who are sympathetic to murderous police officers, are the most vocal critics of the rioters. Focusing on rioting while ignoring savage police brutality is demonstrative of sheer moral bankruptcy.
