    Obama: 'No excuse' for violence in Baltimore

    Obama: 'No excuse' for violence in Baltimore - CNNPolitics.com

    "There's no excuse for the kind of violence that we saw yesterday. It is counterproductive," Obama said at a press conference from the White House. "When individuals get crowbars and start prying open doors to loot, they're not protesting. They're not making a statement. They're stealing. When they burn down a building, they're committing arson. And they're destroying and undermining businesses and opportunities in their own communities. That robs jobs and opportunity from people in that area."
    Thought this was interesting. I guess it takes the wind out of the 'tacit approval' crowd.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Well there's not much to say, that's a true statement. There is no excuse, it is counterproductive, it does undermine the community.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Good on him.

    But the question does remain as to why he felt the need to send three representatives to the funeral.
    Worth noting, Democrats: President Trump will have a Pen and a Phone. #Precedent.

    The President remains right to say what he did in the OP. As for his statement about "incidents" coming up once a week or once every few weeks - what is happening is that cell phones now have camera's on them, and the media picks up every video of any occurrence and runs with it. It's not that "it's happening more" so much as it is that it's getting reported more.
