Obviously things are beyond complicated in the world right now. However as Chuck Liddell once said, violence begets violence. On the other hand, the frustration that Belal Muhammad, and others feel is understandable, especially given how personal this must feel for him at this point.
This is definitely a volatile time in the country, and in the world. As a result, there is sure to be differing opinions on what is going on. Nevertheless it is important to remember that just because a feeling is different than yours, does not make it invalid.
