Baltimore Riots: an inside look
The riots that have recently occurred in Baltimore have been disturbing and impacted the surrounding communities negatively. Though these riots have been devastating to the city itself, the people outside of the city have not been significantly affected. For teenagers not in Baltimore, the riots are scene generally as a disgrace, something that is unnecessary. The riots themselves have come about from displeasure in minority ethnic groups in the US, due to many recent incidents of unfair police action.
These minority groups could no longer deal with their unfair treatment, specifically the accident in which an arrested man died in police custody, which set off these groups in trying to achieve equality. There have been peaceful protests in Baltimore among the rioting, and these are the people that really want to change the problem. In the eyes of many teenagers, the rioting is just an opportunity for the less fortunate to steal and do damage to the city. The things that need to be taken away from these riots are that changes need to be made, and we need to listen to the peaceful protesters cries. The obscene actions of the rioters are just unnecessary crimes that are being facilitated by the anger towards the police, and they are using anger as an excuse for their actions. Overall, the racism in the US has never fully gone away, and the civil unrest is a direct consequence. In order for nothing like this to happen again, people in this country need to become more sensitive to other people and need to understand the views of others. Taking these things into consideration, riots like the ones in Baltimore need to be prevented from happening across the country.
