Police Brutality and the Baltimore Riots

Hosted by

After last night's rioting, there is tension on the streets of Baltimore — filled with protesters, police and the National Guard. At the white House today, President Obama denounced last night's violence but praised peaceful protest by thousands of people over the killing Freddie Gray, of a young black man in police custody, and what he called "decades" of abuse that needs to be recognized. Investigative reporter Mark Puente is following the story for the Baltimore Sun.
