People in Baltimore protest police brutality, demand justice for Freddie Gray

Dozens of people took to the streets in the US city of Baltimore to demand justice for slain black man Freddie Gray as a new video shows police brutality during his arrest.

Protesters marched from Gray’s neighborhood in Sandtown-Winchester to the Baltimore Fraternal Order of Police Lodge on Wednesday, calling for conviction of officers involved in Gray’s death.

Gray, 25, was arrested on April 12 and died from spinal injuries suffered during his arrest a week later.

Earlier this month, Maryland State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby said criminal charges were filed against six officers in the case.

The Baltimore Police Department Union, however, has denied that there was any wrongdoing by the officers.
