The ongoing riots in Baltimore are not anything I would want for the city I call home. Neither would I want the police that protect my family and my community to harass or even worse kill unarmed citizens who may or may have not committed a minor crime. I will be praying for peace for the people of Baltimore.
Baltimore is suffering right now. The yet-to-be explained death of Freddie Gray in police custody sparked protests over the weekend. After Gray’s funeral earlier today, things have escalated even further throughout the city.
According to The New York Times, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has since established a curfew for the city and deployed the National Guard to help reestablish order. Despite this, many protesters and rioters are still on the streets, and many firefighters are still trying to quash the flames.
