Tara Dodrill

The Wire stars are calling for an end to the Baltimore riots. The hit HBO series was based upon the writings of Baltimore Sun reporter, David Simon. The show was focused on the crime and culture of the western district of "Charm City."

One of the most recognizable western district Baltimore landmarks of The Wire was burned to the ground during the Baltimore Purge looting, arson, and violence on Monday evening. The corner store where popular character, Omar Little, was killed, was among the 15 businesses burned by rioters after the Freddie Gray funeral.

"Yes, there is a lot to be argued, debated, addressed. Changes are necessary and voices need to be heard. All of that is true and all of that is still possible, despite what is now loose in the streets. If you can't seek redress and demand reform without a brick in your hand, you risk losing this moment for all of us in Baltimore. Turn around. Go home. Please."
