The Silver Lining of Baltimore Riots

Post by WD42C on Wed Apr 29, 2015 3:04 pm

It's too easy to focus on the negative side of these things - to accuse, judge, and condemn. However, as we pray for peace for our fellow man, lets take a moment to focus on the good in people. I always say, it takes very little light to displace a lot of darkness.

From a INFOWARS story... http://www.infowars.com/pictures-and-footage-you-wont-see-on-tv-baltimore-citizens-are-done-with-mindless-rioters/



Here is the text, see the above INFOWAR link for pictures and videos...



It seems that the lone Vietnam veteran who took a stand against violent looters Monday has inspired a real uprising in Baltimore – against the rioters.

Incredible scenes underreported and barely covered by the mainstream media unfolded just ahead of the designated curfew yesterday as citizens lined up, and even held hands in front police lines, putting themselves in the direct line of fire of bottles, bricks and rocks being thrown toward cops.

Their message to the rioters was ‘enough with this sh*t':

Other citizens stood outside businesses and property, guarding against looters:



Others have grouped together to clean up their city.

Real ‘protesters’ engaged police in conversations, even voicing their concerns over incidents of police brutality. Police officers even agreed with them:

Others simply danced in the street:

Of course, none of this makes for compelling rolling news like smashing and chaos does.

It is a timely reminder that those who engage in violent rioting and looting are only encouraging further police authoritarianism, a fact every day citizens appear to be embracing in Baltimore.
