• Ray Lewis to Baltimore Rioters: ‘No More’

    It might be a message that’s too little too late. But it’s certainly welcome.

    After a night of rioting and looting across the city of Baltimore, former Ravens football player Ray Lewis says there’s no way this should ever happen in “our city.”

    Lewis posted a video on Youtube which captured his passionate plea for peace and calm in Baltimore amid the madness and violence.

    “Young kids, you gotta understand something,” an impassioned Lewis pleads. “Get off the streets. Violence is not the answer. Violence has never been the answer.”

    Ray Lewis had spent much of Monday night tweeting about his disappointment over the rioting that began in response to the death of Freddie Gray:

    “You don’t have no right to do what you’re doing to this city,” he said. “Too many hardworking people built this city. We put this city together. We put this city on our back.

    “We know the problems. We know there was wrong done. We know we are not getting the right justice. We know what’s out there. But rioting in our streets is wrong.”

    Rey Lewis has had his own run-ins with law enforcement in the past. But in Baltimore, the Superbowl champion is a football legend. And it’s hard to argue that he doesn’t love his city, currently being torn to pieces by a bunch of hoodlums.
