Protests are continuing in Baltimore as residents demand answers in the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who died of apparent spinal injuries after being arrested by police.

A “rough ride” is a term given to individuals that are put in the back of a police car while the car is driving erratically, all for the purpose of hurting the individual. In a press conference yesterday, Baltimore Police Chief Anthony Batts admitted that Gray was not buckled in.
There is, of course, a lot more to the story. The death in Baltimore, along with tragedies all over the country, are raising one important question: what is wrong with our police?
