[VIDEO] Retired Baltimore Ravens Star Ray Lewis has a Message for the #BaltimoreRiots

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Ray Lewis spent his entire 17-year NFL career playing for the Baltimore Ravens as a middle linebacker. He is legendary in the city that he calls home and felt the need to speak out as he watched the city burn at the hands of out of control thugs who were rioting, looting, burning buildings and cars, and attacking police.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]On Tuesday morning, Lewis took to both Facebook and Twitter with his message to rioters. He called for an end to the violence and the need for real leadership in the community.

[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]On his Facebook page, he posted a passionate video pleading with those causing the destruction to stop the violence and go home.

Will Lewis put his words, his vow that this type of thing is not going to happen on his watch, into action? Only time will tell. But, if the violence does not stop, Baltimore will continue to burn and the impact on the city will be long-lasting.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
