Army Sgt. Has Perfect Message for Thugs Rioting in Baltimore

As the thugs, punks and criminals continue to destroy their own city over perceived police brutality, one Army sergeant has the perfect message for them.

Sergeant Marcus Rogers posted a video to his Facebook page[1].

Here is what he said[2]:

If you’re out there rioting, you’re out there breaking people’s businesses that they worked hard to build, causing chaos in the streets, you’re out there throwing rocks at police and destroying police cars, do you understand that you’re actually doing more damage than good?

If Martin Luther King were here, a real civil rights leader … he would be disappointed in what you guys are doing. First of all, it’s hypocritical; you pick and choose when you want to stand up for what’s right:

More black people are killing black people through gang violence and abortions than anything else. But you don’t march about that, you don’t post on Facebook about that, you don’t be an activist about that. … You give them a pass …. even though that’s an actual bigger problem.

We need [to be] looking in the mirror, keeping it real, stop making excuses, stop trying to blame everybody else. Let’s fix ourselves first.

But it seems that the Sgt. took down his video because he recorded it in uniform and he became afraid the Army would punish him for being in uniform in the video.
