"No way, no way this can happen in our city," pleads Baltimore Ravens' retired linebacker Ray Lewis.
As the violence and unrest continues during the the Baltimore riots in the wake of the death of Freddie Gray after being arrested by Baltimore City police, several Ravens and former Ravens players have weighed in on the situation via social media.
"If you're going to engage in civil disobedience, it needs to be nonviolent," defensive end Chris Canty told The Baltimore Sun. "Violence is unproductive. It's our responsibility to speak out. It's a part of our obligation. We have to have some resolution. It has to start with peace and getting people off of the streets and unify the community and we can affect positive change through peaceful protest.
"There is social injustice. The police brutality has been well-documented. The Department of Justice isn't investigating the police for no reason. There needs to be a shift in policy. This isn't the way, though, with the few individuals trying to force that change through violent means."
Retired middle linebacker Ray Lewis reacted to the situation.
"No way, No way this can happen in our city," Lewis wrote on his Twitter account. "Violence is not the answer. We must have #peace in our #city, we are a city that's built on #Believing in each other. #BaltimoreRiots.
