The Baltimore Riots In Photos

Freddie Gray was a 25-year-old man from Baltimore. On April 19th he died in police custody after being arrested on April 12th. Freddie was another black man who died after coming into contact with the police.
The civil rights movement demanded action and to honor his memory, peaceful protests took place in Baltimore, but soon these protests turned into something resembling scenes from The Wire.
Riots broke out, shops were looted and property set on fire. All in these people's own neighborhood.
The reason why they were in the streets in the first place has been forgotten already and that is no way to honor a fallen man.
