Chance Glenn, provost and vice president of academic affairs for the University of Houston-Victoria, was referencing the riots at the Capitol in story on Page A1 Monday. The quote should have read: “Martin Luther King was noted for his nonviolent protests in contrast to what we are experiencing now,” Glenn said referring to the riots at the Capitol. “During the Civil Rights Movement, violence was perpetrated on the protesters — water hoses and dogs — and it actually exposed the violence being perpetrated to the rest of the world. Today, it’s almost the opposite. Some of the violence in our protests today is being perpetrated by the protesters.”
