Protesters rallied today in Baltimore, Maryland, today over the death of Freddie Gray, an African-American man who passed away on Sunday.
Gray was arrested by police on April 12. The Baltimore Police Department claimed that Gray was taken into custody "without force or incident," but he ended up in a trauma unit soon after his arrest. He was later placed into a medically-induced coma and died on April 19.
CNN reporter Miguel Marquez was walking among protesters in Baltimore today when a young man grabbed his microphone and began cursing (video below).
The unidentified man yelled, "Motherf---- ain't taking this s---! F--- him! F-- you! F--- that straight up! F--- CNN!”
Marquez got back control of his mic and estimated that there were one to two thousand marchers.
The police officers involved in Gray's arrest were recently suspended by the Baltimore Police Department, and the U.S. Justice Department has launched an investigation into Gray's death, notes USA Today.
According to ABC News, Gray fled officers on foot, but it's not clear why the cops approached him. The Baltimore Police Department claims that Gray acted "irate" inside a police van and was placed in leg irons. The driver of the police van reportedly asked for an additional police unit to check on Gray, EMS was later called and Gray was taken to a Maryland trauma unit. There are still gaps of unaccountable time during the arrest.
