Ball Game's On With Freddie Gray Protesters Positioned By Cops April 25, 2015

The Orioles ball game was still on, with Freddie Gray Protesters strategically positioned by cops - on April 25, 2015 - despite the protesters declaring they would shut the game down. Ten minutes before I shot this video, hundreds of Freddie Gray protesters were marching along Conway St. there. They had shut down vehicular traffic, while they walked in the street, then the police had kept them out of Camden Yards and moved them up about a block away. You can see that those sidewalk vendors - who are there for every ball game time - had not been ransacked or robbed by the protesters. The people you see walking are going to the Orioles Game. This was on Saturday, it was the following Monday when the riotous ransacking, robbery and destruction of businesses happened - mostly 30 to 40 some city blocks northwest of there.
