Last week, Pastor Jeff Vines flew to Atlanta, Georgia, to attend the memorial service for Ravi Zacharias and found himself in a city that was in uproar over the death of an unarmed man in police custody.

Jeff spoke with Robbo and Becci on Rise & Shine about feeling afraid as he witnessed looting and riots first hand, as well as sharing what he believes is the root cause of the violence and the ongoing racial tension that has been seen in recent years.
