Over the weekend, following the news of charges in the case of the unjust death of Freddie Gray, peaceful protesters took to the streets of Baltimore. A video has emerged that is widely being shared as representing the police aggression and brutality in the city.
In the video a man is seen standing with his arms at his sides. In protest, he is ordered to step back but instead stands his ground. An officer then abruptly sprays him directly in the face. The man winces, then continues to stand his ground. An officer sneaks up behind the man, grabs him by his hair then snatches the man to the ground.
At this point other officers swarm the scene.
