> ++++++++++
> Dear Hancock County Commissioners,
> 
> On June 16th you will be considering a request from the County Sheriff for funds to purchase “Riot Gear”.
> 
> Since 1978, we’ve lived in Penobscot and Hancock Counties. During those years we have participated and observed many peaceful vigils  and demonstrations! We have never witnessed any violence!
> 
> We urge you to consider Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's words about riots as you think about funding the purchase of riot gear for Hancock County.
> 
> The requested funds might better be used for building better law-enforcement out-reach programs and community support services.
> 
> Thank you for your thoughtful consideration of this issue.
> 
> Sincerely,
> John and Katie Greenman

>  Riots are “socially destructive and self-defeating,” Martin Luther King Jr. said <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJu_YDgw9rU> in 1967, during an earlier spasm of unrest. In the same passage he wrote, “It is as necessary for me to be as vigorous in condemning the conditions which cause persons to feel that they must engage in riotous activities as it is for me to condemn riots.”
> “In the final analysis, a riot is the language of the unheard,” Dr. King said. “As long as America postpones justice, we stand in the position of having these recurrences of violence and riots over and over again.”
