Freddie Gray activists plan protest at O'Malley announcement

BALTIMORE —Some Baltimore police accountability activists say they'll protest former Gov. Martin O'Malley's announcement of a possible presidential bid in the city Saturday morning.

Duane Davis, of Baltimore Bloc, said Thursday that police brutality flourished under O'Malley's "zero-tolerance" law enforcement policies during his seven years as mayor. Davis traces the death of Freddie Gray, who suffered a fatal injury in police custody, to O'Malley's policies.

O'Malley has responded to such criticism in the weeks since Gray died April 19. He says Baltimore is safer now than it was in 1999, when he was elected mayor.

Because white guy.

And because Baltimore is so much safer now, since "stand your ground" has been replaced with "stand down".
