Race baiting in the Shomrim case

February 18, 2011

Two exemplary young men who volunteer to keep the community safe responded to a call because a teen with a criminal record of theft was truant from school and looking in cars miles from his neighborhood. Shame on the Rev. Cortly C.D. Witherspoon; while his dozen protesters shouted "no justice, no peace" a group of supporters of the young men, 200 strong, sang songs from the Psalms of King David ("Protesters chant outside as Werdesheim brothers plead not guilty to beating black teen," Feb. 16). Reverend, as man of the cloth you are charged with bringing peace among people not inciting hatred. Remember when you point your finger accusing others of being racist, three of your fingers point back at you.

Dr. Michael Freedman, Baltimore
