Pacoima supports Baltimore?

There is a rally scheduled tonight in Pacoima in support of the Baltimore uprisings, yet not many people are happy about it.  The event was created on Facebook this afternoon and shared through various community pages related to Pacoima.  However, many of the comments are condemning the event.  Some say what is happening in Baltimore has nothing to do with Pacoima.  Others are afraid the rally my encourage violent riots here like those similar in Baltimore.

 

Here are some of the comments from one particular thread.

 

These users accuse the organizer of the event of instigating a riot:

Very few, like this user, were trying to be understanding:

The event is scheduled this evening at 7 p.m. on the corner of Van Nuys Boulevard and Laurel Canyon Boulevard.  The Facebook event page says 19 people will be there.  The organizer for the event was not immediately available for comment.

Protests have broken out in Baltimore, Maryland since the death of Freddie Gray, who died of spinal injures while in police custody.  The nation has focused their attention to Baltimore after riots broke out Monday following Gray’s funeral.
