    Do you believe that rioting serves a purpose ?

    I was listening to the news about the riots in Baltimore,Maryland (police killed a kid). They are destroying property but I wonder how they think that it will solve their problems with police.

    I think the purpose of riots like these is to express outrage over a situation and draw attention to an issue that otherwise might be ignored or unnoticed by the media, the authorities, and the general public.

      it's sad that things always seem to trickle down to riots, fights and war before anyone listens and talk peace

    Absolutely. Voices are, wrongly, and unfortunately, easy to, and often, ignored.

    Fire isn't.

    In a better world, people would find more constructive ways to be heard, though, in a better world they wouldn't have to because their voices would be taken into consideration long before violence was considered.

      what i cannot figure out is why is it that no one listens until violence erupts.

    As much as I hate to say it, the recent riots are trying to raise issues that our elected leaders, local, state and federal, have lost site of.  Our elected leaders are so focused on winning their next election, or what is going on outside of the country, that they are out of touch with the people they are supposed to be helping and leading.  With that being said, most of these rioters are probably people who don't have much and are just rioting out of frustration.  These riots are just a way to release their frustrations.  If we would force our elected leaders to create quality jobs and to help build our communities, these riots would probably happening far less often.
