Baltimore protests

The nation has been gripped by the fallout from the deaths of black men after encounters with police: Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri; Eric Garner in New York; Walter Scott in North Charleston, South Carolina; and most recently, Freddie Gray in Baltimore.

Protests in Baltimore erupted in violence following the funeral for Gray, who mysteriously died a week after being arrested by Baltimore police. Anger over his plight may have spurred Monday's violence, but Baltimore City Council Member Brandon Scott said it was also fueled by "a long, long, longstanding issue with young African-Americans."
