FreddieGrayPrecinctProtestOn the morning of April 12, 2015, Freddie Gray was arrested in West Baltimore. While in police custody he sustained a spinal cord injury, became unresponsive, and died a week later. The firestorm of protests and violence that followed has led to national discussions about policing tactics, race, class, and what it means to be a community.
