Baltimore Riots

Shortly after the funeral Freddie Gray who died while in police custody, all hell broke out in Baltimore. The police were even attacked.  Some news sources are claiming that the police even threw bricks at teenagers protesting.

Buildings, cars and other property were set on fire and several police officers and even journalists were hurt badly. Many businesses were even looting.  It seemed like a repeat of the Furguson riots during the fall when a jury exonerated former police officer Darren Wilson of charges against him.

Maryland Governor, Larry Hogan had to declare a state of emergency and brought in the National Guard to help restore order. Things seem to not have calmed down and may get worse.  Baltimore is much larger than Furguson and due to the funeral, many outsiders have come in among them, instigators.  Schools, business and other events were cancelled including the Baltimore Orioles baseball game.
