Baltimore is in a state of unrest tonight, with rioting
and looting breaking out after the funeral of Freddie Gray, the man who
suffered a severed spine in police custody and died this month. We’re covering the events live here.

On Wednesday Detroit Police
car has casually rammed into multiple children during the pursuit.
Patrol car refused to stop and continued the chase. Two kids were
killed, they were - Michaelangelo Jackson and his sister Makiah, ages 6 and 3. They and the rest kids were playing in front of the house when the cars appeared nearby and plowed them. I understand that chase of criminals on cars must be very hard work, but cops should
be professionals! How could they just keep chasing the criminal after
runover into the children? That’s an example of criminal negligence! True bastards.
Never forget the time they flew over the Black Panther’s
headquarters/home in Philadelphia and dropped 2 fire bombs on them,
resulting in the death of all of the house’s 11 occupants but two,
including 5 children, and 6 women and men (including the group’s leader,
John Africa). The fire was meant to flush them out, and firefighters
were told to standby to watch it all burn and to not help the people
burning inside. 65 surrounding houses were negligently engulfed & destroyed by the flames.
Oh yeah, and police admit to firing more than 10,000 rounds of ammunition at the burning house in a span of less than 20 minutes, even if they were to come out of the burning house alive.
Though an investigation practically condemned the sheer violence and
brute force used by the police in an American city, no one involved
received any charges for the fire-bombing, destruction, and death of 11
people, almost half of which were children.
