BALTIMORE —Protesters chained themselves to railings outside and inside the lobby of the Baltimore Hyatt Regency Hotel Sunday afternoon as the state's Fraternal Order of Police held its bi-annual conference there.
Police arrested 12 protesters and charged them with trespassing. The Baltimore Bloc protested the FOP Tuesday, the second day in a row, at the FOP Lodge at 39020 Buena Vista Ave.
"The FOP is the No. 1 obstruction to police accountability and justice they operate more as a good ole boys club instead of a union," said Ralikh Hayes, coordinator of Baltimore Bloc.
"Well, I think there's a narrative out there that's just inaccurate. I think it's made up. I really don't think it's a misunderstanding," said O'Brien Atkinson, vice president of Maryland FOP.
Atkinson on Monday reacted to Sunday's protests and arrests.
