101 Baltimore Protesters Go Free as Arrest Paperwork Backs Up

Dozens of people arrested in violent demonstrations this week in Baltimore were being released early Wednesday evening because police were unable to complete their paperwork in time, the state public defender's office said.

The 101 detainees began walking free without charges about the same time that Baltimore police announced that their report into the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old African-American man who died in police custody this month, wouldn't be made public Friday.

Police Commissioner Anthony Batts set a deadline of May 1 to file the report with state investigators. Capt. Eric Kowalczyk said late Wednesday afternoon that the report would remain closed to protect the integrity of the inquiry.

Plenty of room in the governors mansion.

I'm certain that the cops would have had an overwhelming turnout of volunteer help if they'd just asked.
