Protesters hurled bricks, looted businesses and set fires in Baltimore on Monday in violence that injured at least seven police officers following the funeral of a 25-year-old black man who died after he was injured in police custody. The riots broke out just a few blocks from the funeral of Freddie Gray and then spread through parts of Baltimore in the most violent U.S. demonstrations since looting in Ferguson, Missouri, last year.

 

Pastor Corey Brooks of New Beginnings Church here in Chicago and former Lieutenant Governor of Maryland Michael Steele joined Roe Conn to discuss the continuing riots in Baltimore.
