Watch: Cops and Locals Clash in Baltimore

A school walkout is followed by anti-police riots.


More violence broke out in Baltimore today. The details are very vague, but apparently there was a school walkout, with a plan to march from Mondawmin Mall. Cops arrived in riot gear, and at some point kids started throwing rocks and bricks at the police. Things took off from there, and the rioting appears to be both more widespread and more intense than on Saturday. WJZ has a live feed here:

Many businesses have shut down early, and one library has reportedly locked its patrons inside. There are a lot of rumors floating around, and I'd be very wary of believing everything you hear—reskinned urban legends tend to surface during riots, so keep your BS detectors on.
