don't people wait to hear the details before just an assumption based upon race?

After peaceful start, protest of Freddie Grays death in Baltimore turns violent

BALTIMORE Six hours into a remarkably peaceful protest of the death of a man in police custody, a confrontation outside Camden Yards baseball park suddenly turned violent Saturday night as demonstrators clashed with fans who had turned out for a ballgame.

Before the melee was over, six unoccupied police cars had been damaged by protesters and police in riot gear and on horseback moved methodically to push the demonstrators from a key downtown intersection.

For hours, the police had kept their distance as nearly 1,000 people angered by the death of Freddie Gray while in police custody marched from the downtrodden neighborhood where he lived and died to the more upscale Inner Harbor area and City Hall.

After passing by the ballpark once, they returned to it a second time as fans began to make their way from parking lots and nearby bars toward the stadium for an Orioles-Red Sox game.

A confrontation occurred at three bars with sidewalk cafes, where words were exchanged, items were tossed, and tables and trash cans were toppled. A bottle shattered a restaurant window. A protester grabbed a womans purse, and a man chased him.

The police did not become involved. They just stood there, said Alan Hastings, who was having a pregame beer with his wife.

After the crowd dispersed, a phalanx of police then swept down Howard Street to protect several police cars that were being pummeled. The demonstrators, now reduced in number to about 200, used a metal barrier to smash the window of one police cruiser, kicked in the windshield of another and plucked a police officers cap from through another shattered window, waving it as if in triumph.

The officers, in riot gear for the first time since the days protest began, shouted, Move back! Move back! as they inched forward to clear the intersection of Camden and Pratt streets. A few of the protesters spat at them.

At 8 p.m., a police helicopter flying overhead broadcast that those in the remaining crowd would be arrested if they did not disperse. Twelve people who appeared to be causing the most trouble were arrested, Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts said at a news conference. The others dispersed.

Interesting

Now, here is what you probably don't know about the state of Maryland. In a 2011 analysis, Maryland was named as one of the deadliest states in the country for police killings. This year, the ACLU of Maryland identified 109 people who died in encounters with police in Maryland between 2010 and 2014. Accounting for relative population size, black people died at the hands of Maryland police 10 times as often as white people.

In fairness to the police there was a tattoo on the back of Gray's neck saying "Place Boot Here".

This next comment is not based on all!!

They live in herds (how they choose to live) and kill each other. Its thought maybe that's what people want. Undecided
If we all lived together (Each neighborhood being at least 10% minority) it may help big time. Living in a scary area, and developing a always pissed off culture is dangerous.

I'll get racist for this too. Sad

So how many shots do you drink to stop rioting?
