Baltimore Uprising

On April 27, 2015, residents of Baltimore, MD became violent after the protest related to the funeral of Freddie Gray, a man that was beaten and subsequently died while in police custody. After a period of riots and civil unrest, the city of Baltimore declared a state of emergency, dispatched the National Guard and implemented a 10pm curfew on to it's citizens, specifically in the neighborhood of Sandtown in West Baltimore. The days following the riot, peaceful protests and rallies could be seen every day by the citizens of Baltimore.
