Gray Family Attorney on Rioters: 'What They Are Doing Is Wrong'

(CNSNews) - Billy Murphy, the attorney for Freddie Gray's family, said the violence in Baltimore was started by teenagers -- "kids who are disconnected from the overall group of people in Baltimore who are productive in society. These kids have had bad experiences in school," Murphy told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on Monday afternoon as the rioting gained momentum.

"They are frequently harassed by the police. They are unemployed because there's no summer jobs. And so this is what you would expect in a tense time like this," Murphy continued.

"That's not a justification, though, because what they're doing is wrong. And we need to stop them. And those of us who are more mature in Baltimore, black and white together, we need to have a demonstration that shows them the right way to do it, rather than permitting them to go without leadership, the way that they're going now."

There are a couple of issues here. One is - there are no summer jobs so you burn down and loot the businesses that are in your neighborhood!?! So no one can work!

The second is - who the hell would want to hire people with their obvious lack of character and discipline...

No jobs - just an excuse. If they had a job making tons of money, they would screw that up too.

Adopt a black teen to keep them off the street. Do they have "Big Brothers"...NO.... not enough adult examples of how to be an decent adult. There is no answer to this but it is a BLACK issue that needs to be addressed by that community and fast. Stop looking at color as if it is a curse. It is a mental disadvantage because children have bought into the "curse" Until there is pride in who you are.... you have no future.

His comments are stupid.
Always seeking to direct blame and responsibility outward.
I call bull$hit!
They are just a young version of gangsters and thugs,.,
and his comments just let them off the hook for their dispicable behavior.
