People around the world are watching Baltimore, just as they watched Ferguson in August, and the headlines in some countries are more damning than in others.
Protests and riots have come in response to the still unexplained death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old African American man who died from a spinal cord injury after police arrested him on April 12 and brought him to a hospital when he became unresponsive during transport.
Officials still haven’t explained what happened and the community of Baltimore City is furious. Many are protesting. A few people are destroying property and looting. Police are wearing riot gear. And CNN reporters are walking around with camera crews.
And so Freddie Gray joins Michael Brown and Eric Garner as the men whose deaths will define the present moment in America’s long, dark history of state violence against people of color.
