    Freddie Gray coverage

    IS anyone watching this?

    http://www.wbaltv.com/news/freddie-g...erage/32570600

    People throwing bricks and burning trash cans at the cops, those in attendance at the game were forced to stay at the stadium until further notice.
    Lets welcome the DUKE to the Baltimore Orioles

    I was, I couldn't stop watching the Ferguson live streams either. I got home last night and was pissed that there was no rioting / looting going on and I had missed most of it.

    I'm a terrible human being.

    At least the cops involved got charged. Although, they had their bail set lower than many of the protesters that were arrested for lesser offences...

    I'd like to see sources for that - pretty sure the Governor implemented a temporary provision granting anyone who got arrested during the protest amnesty if they hadn't had charges formally brought against them within 48 hours of their arrest. Most of the protestors who were arrested I doubt even ever faced charges.

    Okay well one protestor with an extremely high bail IMO doesn't mean shit. I mean we all know the system is fucked up - of course the magistrate is going to side with the cops in reality but yeah not right either way.

    Didn't have time to read the whole article - I've been arrested before and I know they usually set your bail based on your previous criminal history / flight risk / a number of factors. Maybe that dude was chucking rocks at police or lighting buildings on fire - most of that gets taken into account when your bail is set. Though if he was just peacefully protesting then yeah that's fucked.
