  1. I am a fan of BK Reader and I think you do an outstanding job covering the news equitably and objectively. But I was curious as to why you would choose a Black Lives Matter protest photo as the photo for a crime roundup that talks about the increase in crime? BLM and the fight for racial equity and justice should not be connected to crime as the protests were not a source or cause of crime and decisions like choosing this photo for a crime story reinforce a false narrative.
