Tensions continued to flare in Baltimore Monday evening as police clashed with protesters who took to the streets in the wake of Freddie Gray’s funeral. Gray was a 25-year-old black man who died in police custody under unclear circumstances, and people around the city—notably, many teens—gathered in protest.
The video was originally from WMAR, the Baltimore ABC affiliate. It’s just a brief shot of them in the background.
Another clip confirms that the woman seen physically confronting the young man is most likely his mother, if not a close relative. You can hear her cursing at him and saying “You gonna be out here doing this nonsense? Get the fuck over here.”
