Since the St. Louis police officer, Darren Wilson shot an 18 year old man named Michael Brown, many citizens in disapproval have been protesting in a violent manner.  It is not up to my discretion to judge whether the shooting was a racial issue or not (As I was not there).  When I think of this situation I think of one person, Martin Luther King Jr.  MLK was a well educated man, and was the leader of the civil rights movement.  Martin Luther King protested in a nonviolent and peaceful way, which made his ideas become that much more powerful.  He was influenced by Ghandi who preached nonviolence and peace.  It is disturbing to see buildings getting burned, people getting injured, and more gunshots being fired over such a situation.  It leads to a vicious cycle of violence and resulting in no positive outcomes.
