株洲翻译公司整理 巴蒂摩尔抗议警察暴力

BALTIMORE— Hundreds of protesters gathered Thursday in downtown Baltimore, in the eastern U.S. state of Maryland, to again demand changes to the justice system following the death of a 25-year-old man taken into police custody last week.

Officials arrested two people for disorderly conduct in what was otherwise a loud but peaceful protest as the city awaits more information from authorities about how Freddie Gray died.

With hands and voices raised, demonstrators marched for hours around Baltimore.

Stopped traffic

Starting between City Hall and police headquarters, the crowd stopped traffic to demand accountability from local officials for what they allege was an act of police brutality.

Among the protesters: Pastor Jamal Bryant, who helped organize the event. He wants improvements for the majority-black-city's residents, and changes across the country.

"This was the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back. This isn't a new incident. We're seeing the same thing from Sanford, Florida, to Ferguson, Missouri and now right here in Baltimore that there's got to be an overhaul of the complete system," Bryant said.

Also at the rally was Kiona Mack, who pulled out her phone to record as police arrested Gray on April 12 and dragged him to a police van.

"There's a lot of Freddie Grays and this is not the first time that the police violated somebody's rights and murdered somebody," said Mack, of Sandtown.

Later in the afternoon, area families joined vocal but nonviolent protesters outside the heavily guarded police station, just blocks from where Gray tried to run from police before he was handcuffed.

The demonstration is a teaching moment for Ahmed Royalty and his 11-year-old son.

"My father has brought me here today to learn about racism that actually still exists to this very past day, 'cuz if I didn't know about this, then I wouldn't have been alive right now," said King Zahir Royalty, 11, of Sandtown.
