Hundreds of protesters took to the streets of Baltimore on Saturday to protest the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who died this month while in the custody of the Baltimore Police Department — the details of which are still somewhat unclear.
Here is just a tiny fragment of ignorance from kids in my town about the Baltimore protests. Not only are they are racially profiling blacks as a whole by calling them baboons and talking about weaves, Jordan’s and welfare, but they are also threatening violence with more violence. Where will it end?
Edit: Not to mention we are all from right outside of Baltimore and everyone thinks they know what’s been going on with the Freddie Gray case. It’s been over a week and no one said anything until these protests started.
While the media celebrated in D.C. with a menu that included crabmeat terrine, paprika-rubbed filet mignon and seared Alaskan halibut, an hour away in Baltimore protests over the death of 25-year-old black man Freddie Gray at the hands of Baltimore police had reached a crescendo. Attendees at the D.C. event wore Forevermark diamonds and Armani tuxedos; people in Baltimore wore shirts saying #BlackLivesMatter and carried signs decrying police brutality. Others wore riot armor and clenched batons.An alarming symbol of America’s larger problem.
Guys, please pray for Baltimore. What started out as a peaceful protest has turned violent. Protesters (most likely NOT associated with the original peaceful group) has started attacking civilians on their way to Camden Yards for the Orioles game. Please note that police have not pulled any weapons or made any move to attack or threaten protesters. The only thing they have done is put up barriers to keep the protesters out of the baseball park to keep the game-goers safe. It’s a stressful situation and please just pray for the safety of the protesters, police, and the civilians.
On Saturday, thousands marched to Baltimore’s City Hall to protest the police-custody death of 25-year-old black man Freddie Gray. A small minority of Baltimore’s residents decided to irresponsibly engage in property destruction and acts of violence. Guess which the media focused on? This is recent history repeating itself all over again.
BALTIMORE – Hundreds of people took to the streets here on Saturday to demonstrate against police brutality and call for accountability for the police officers involved in the arrest of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old who died April 19 as the result of a severe spinal injury that occurred when he was taken into custody a week earlier. Charles Thomas stood outside his apartment in the Gilmor Homes on Saturday and watched as the crowd gathered. Thomas, 63, remembered Freddie as “quiet” and said he would hang out in the Homes to “cut the fool with the fellas.”
