Keith Olbermann May 1, 2015 EvaIowaRedSoxFan May 1, 2015 Half the comments connected to the Baltimore story are from people who will never have to worry about the police killing them or their families or those they care about at random on any given day somewhere in this country. They are protected by their section of society and because of other factors they have some control over and in some cases no control over, but they never fear a cop up and shooting them for no reason or beating them for no reason. When people like that ever have that fear reach them or realize this is real with many others of this country we may get somewhere, but I do not see that day happening. It will take events that will impact a section of America that is never touched because those who abuse the power will never poke the proverbial bear that has not been awoken. If it ever is, change may happen, but only because they were impacted and not because they give a damn for their fellow human beings. Many Americans are selfish people who only care about their rights and liberties and not for those of everyone. What a shame and what a shit country we have where this is the majority opinion and not the minority opinion or an opinion that is gone at all.

John Anthony May 1, 2015 Sorry, but no. People being out of work (or wanting to protest) is NOT more important than the safety of the average law-abiding citizen going to a baseball game. And these aren’t “protesters” who were “inconveniencing” non-protesters….they are RIOTERS…..who were putting non-protesters’ lives in danger….and ARE doing this “because they feel like it.” Amazing how wrong you can be in a single video.

What in the world are you talking about, Olbermann?

All it did was put more money in the pockets of the Angelos family. jnburch May 1, 2015 typical olbermann garbage Trackball May 1, 2015 Freddie Gray’s arrest record: 8-24-07 – manufacturing and distribution of narcotics 8-29-07 – distribution of narcotics 9-21-07 – distribution of narcotics 2-12-08 – distribution of narcotics 3-20-08 – Burglary 3-20-08 – possession of narcotics 3-28-08 – possession of narcotics 4-16-08 – distribution of narcotics 4-30-08 – unlawful possession (TWO COUNTS) 8-28-08 – possession of narcotics 9-16-08 – distribution of narcotics 5-9-12 – distribution of narcotics 10-5-12 – illegal gambling 9-29-13 distribution of narcotics 1-25-14 – possession of narcotics over 10 grams 12-4-14 – distribution of narcotics 12-4-14 – possession of narcotics 12-31-14 – distribution of narcotics 1-4-15 – distribution of narcotics 3-20-15 – dealing cocaine Creighton Rabs May 1, 2015 Well… way to alienate a portion of your audience, you know, the fans who were essentially held hostage at Camden Yards because of these thugs (and, yes, I’m well aware that not all of the protesters were violent, so spare me that nonsense). You’re defending the rights of the rioters but telling those inconvenienced that they have no rights except to deal with it? Please, save the social justice drama for MSNBC and stick to sports.

Teckniphobia May 1, 2015 The big picture’s got a funny way of getting obscured by the immediate. We tune in to the news and see people looting stores and not insubstantial portions of a city set on fire and patrons stranded in a ballpark while the city around them is in a state of emergency. That’s what people are going to pay attention to. It’s harm to innocent people being perpetrated by opportunists who are using and exacerbating this unrest for their own short term gain. And unfortunately, that tends to be the lasting image of these events. Rather than focusing on any exploration of long-term economic inequality and denials of basic civil rights spanning decades, we get a short burst of fury, like a firecracker, and then it’s right back to the same state of affairs as before. TerraCottaGamer May 1, 2015 WOW – KO – that was the biggest reach in the history of journalism. Trying to draw an analogy between the educated protests led by some of the greatest minds in history against the tyranny of a greedy king and protests by a bunch of uniformed, uneducated idiots against the police simply because they are the convenient scapegoat for yet another criminal acting a fool. Maybe these idiots should start protesting the fact their community is riddled deadbeat fathers and broken homes. That might be a decent place to start. There is a massive difference between rising up against the cause of an injustice and rising up against an unfortunate consequence of your own making. Follower of the Pukester May 1, 2015 Scum Protesters think they’re being liberal and revolutionary because…….? When in actuality, they’re being complete scumbags and they should all be punished. Jon Samuda May 1, 2015 Joseph Chiappetta May 1, 2015 Wow, Keith is doing his best to make an excuse for inexcusable violence Seo Cho May 1, 2015 Straight garbage like any other cable media. ESPN is no different. Melissa Todd May 1, 2015 …and the *Best Person In the Sports World* is… (no really, you’ll want to see this). Don Schenck May 1, 2015 Well said, Keith. Tee G May 1, 2015 I see Olbermann is an insufferable prick.
