Baltimore Prepares For Protests During Court Hearings In Freddie Gray Case


Baltimore officials are preparing for protests as court hearings ramp up in the Freddie Gray case by coordinating with law enforcement agencies around the state, upgrading riot gear and conducting crowd-control training, the Baltimore Sun reports. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said officials plan to hold educational sessions in schools to explain the justice system to students. Over the next two weeks, court hearings will be held to consider several key issues in the Gray case, including whether charges should be dismissed, whether Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby should be recused and whether the trials should be moved out of Baltimore. The first is scheduled for Wednesday.
