baltimore is now destroyed. the thugs gang members were looting, burning the neighborhood, hurting the predominantly blacks livelihood. the home values are down the drain. people who want to leave the violent situations are stuck with the ruin the thugs caused. the death of gray while in police custody was used as an excuse to engage in anarchy. the slow, unknown inquest, without any police officers being charged are the justifications of the violence. many leaders spoke of mixed messages, condemning the criminal acts, yet with self restraint on imposing the due process of the law / punishments.
