Baltimore Uprising, Taxpayers, and Police

I don't know what to say about Baltimore, except that as a citizen my tax dollars pay for policing, education, economic development etc, not rioting. There is no rioting item in the federal budget and my tax dollars do not fund anyone burning a CVS Pharmacy. So I want to have a conversation about improving policing, education, and economic development--including eliminating racism from government--not about whether desperate people should riot or not. Let impoverished inner city Baltimore residents discuss rioting, and let citizens like me discuss improving government. Right?
