Don’t want to say ‘Told you so America” BUT..Told you so America! This is the start. American uprising is happening right in-front of us all. America people have had enough, they ar e standing up. The same as the people of the UK and Scotland are standing up, American people, young and old are taking to the streets all over the USA to protest in peace, sadly peace means nothing in the USA, so they arrest peace. I said a while back “Can Obama use Martial Law to stay in Power” https://shaunynews.com/2014/12/18/can-obama-use-martial-law-to-stay-in-white-house-past-2016/ Are we seeing the first signs of a country standing up? Is this why America have more War inside the USA than outside on foreign shores? Time will tell, but the people are waking up
Hundreds of people have marched in cities including New York and Boston to protest over the death of a Baltimore man who was critically injured in police custody. New York City police arrested more than 60 people as protesters roved in separate groups through Manhattan, blocking traffic in a few areas. Police using loudspeakers warned them they would be taken into custody if they marched in the street. Protesters are seeking answers about the fate of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who died in Baltimore after suffering spinal injuries while in police custody.
In New York, hundreds first rallied in Manhattan’s Union Square, where they chanted “no justice, no peace” and “hands up, don’t shoot,” a reference to the police killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, last year. Then a group of protesters spilled into the street, disrupting traffic. Dozens of police officers moved in with plastic handcuffs and began making arrests while officers with batons pushed the crowd back onto the sidewalk.
Smaller protests occurred in Boston, Houston, Ferguson, Washington, DC, Seattle and a handful of demonstrators were arrested in Denver. Mr Gray died on 19 April from a severe spinal injury he suffered while in police custody. He had been arrested a week before as he was running away at the sight of police, authorities said. Authorities say they are still investigating how and when he suffered the spinal injury – during the arrest or while he was in the van, where authorities say he was riding without being belted in, a violation of department policy.
Police are due on Friday to give their findings on Mr Gray’s death to prosecutors but said no information will be made public. In Baltimore, 3,000 National Guard troops and police stood by to enforce a 10pm (3am UK time) curfew as thousands of peaceful marchers converged on city hall. The march capped a day of calm in a city that two days earlier saw its worst rioting in decades.
