In response to the rioting in Baltimore, Maryland, I agree with Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who said “Riots are the voice of the unheard,” and at the same time, Dr. King said “The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it.” I believe what is happening in Baltimore now could happen in Detroit in the near future, but it is unlikely because of our history of police-community relations and the legacy of Mayor Coleman A.
