Thanks, Sandy Banks, for taking time to respond to Sundeep Bhatia's request to view the surveillance tapes of the ransacking of his 7-Eleven store following the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. parade, then writing about what you saw.

The tape should be shown in all the surrounding schools, followed by a lecture on the values King professed and how hard Bhatia worked to improve his life and that of the community. No matter their ethnicity, all students need to hear a lesson about honor and respect.
