You don't have to go to Ferguson to protest the deaths of innocents [Letter]

Regarding your report that Jamal Bryant, a Baltimore pastor, recently was arrested at a demonstration in Ferguson, Mo., the stories about the protests there are getting tiresome ("Baltimore pastor arrested at Ferguson protest," Oct. 13).

Yes, a young man (needlessly) died. The circumstances are murky, at best, but his death was a result of a scuffle with the police.

The Sun recently reported that 11 people had been killed in 11 days in Baltimore. But where was the good pastor then — and why was he traveling to a different state rather than across town?

I would like to suggest to Mr. Bryant and others that there are plenty of wrongful deaths to protest right here in Baltimore. Why is it that they don't seem to count?
