Letter: What does rioting accomplish?

Editor, Gazette-Journal:

One watched with horror the destruction of American cities by torching, looting and mayhem. Yes, the murder of a black man, on the ground in handcuffs, by a white policeman, was received with universal revulsion. But what was accomplished by the behavior of the rioters?

The preparation to receive the protests in Mathews County last week is to be highly commended. The Sheriff’s Office, along with State Police, had the county secure and safe. The protest was orderly.
