Freddie Gray – 25 y.o. African American who was executed by Baltimore police on April 19, 2015 during his arrest.

The situation in Baltimore, where people went to the streets in protest, demanding justice for Freddie Gray, is escalating daily. Protests have been going on for over a week, with clashes erupting “throughout the evening of April 27 as police moved into West Baltimore, setting up blockades of riot police everywhere and stopping residents from coming and going freely where they live”.

Michael reports, that “A rebellion is sweeping Baltimore in response to the police murder of Freddy Gray”. Police, in response begun to use “tear gas, smoke bombs and the LRAD sound canons attempting to disperse protesters”. Despite the efforts, the people of West Baltimore continued the protest, shouting at police “Get out of our community.”

The governor of Maryland called in the National Guard an attempt to quell protests demanding justice for Freddy Gray. The city has issued a curfew throughout this week for Baltimore residents.

The situation deteriorated quickly as police forces engaged high school students whom joined the protest. Over 200 police attacked the students with tear gas, starting to randomly shoot at crowd with rubber bullets.

Students responded “with rocks, throwing them from across the street as cops moved for arrests. However, most youth were successful at evading the police”.

“American “justice” once again exposes its true nature. Double standards, police state, totalitarianism and pure terror against US citizens – that’s American “democracy” in 21st century. Surprisingly, some people still fail to see this picture.”
