Obama on Baltimore: Demonstrators Who Did It The Right Way Have Been Ignored Due To Looped Video Of "One Burning Building"


PRESIDENT OBAMA: Point number four, the violence that happened yesterday distracted from the fact that you had seen multiple days of peaceful protests that were focused on entirely legitimate concerns of these communities in Baltimore. Led by clergy and community leaders, and they were constructive and they were thoughtful, and frankly, didn't get that much attention.

And one burning building will be looped on television over and over and over again, and the thousands of demonstrators who did it the right way, I think, have been lost in the discussion. The overwhelming majority of the community in Baltimore, I think, handled this appropriately. Expressing real concern and outrage over the possibility that our laws were not applied evenly in the case of Mr. Gray. And that accountability needs to exist and I think we have to give them credit.
