Twitter user AC filmed this man forming a one-man barricade between rioters and police on the streets of Baltimore.

Earlier today, we profiled one mom doing her part to keep the peace in Baltimore. Now, here's another ordinary citizen stepping up. In this Twitter video, an anonymous man is seen separating a line of rioters from a line of police in full riot gear. Facing the rioters, he shouts at them, "Do not give them a reason!" Wise words from a man of peace.

The irony is that he's wearing a shirt with the symbol of the Punisher, one of the most violent superheroes in all of Marvel Comics. Considering how touchy riot police get, I'm surprised they didn't see the shirt as enough of a reason. Maybe they're DC guys.
