Baltimore Reaction: Cries from the Ashes & A Word from Attorney Sherri Jefferson
As the National Guard troops and the governor's office have descended upon Baltimore following reactions to the possible murder of local resident, Freddie Gray, a 25-year old African American male, this episode will discuss how residents of Baltimore reacted to his death and how their reactions turned into protests, which the media alleged quickly turned into reactions involving fires, theft and physical altercations. However, over 2000 people march upon City Hall without incident of violence.
The real question is whether Baltimore residents represent the meaningful attitudes of most Americans or whether the actions or reactions of Sunday's events represent a small segment of society. Attorney Sherri Jefferson and the African American Juvenile Justice project are reminded of the arrest of 235 people, which includes 34 juveniles as of airing of this episode.
