Baltimore police beat and arrest journalists. Where is Freedom House?

The most famous media was not much interesting in covering massive protests in Baltimor last Saturday. But once it was known about some incidents of violence at the rallies demanding "Justice for Freddie Gray" they began scrambling to hone in, whithout paying any antention to the the rampant police brutality at the same marches.

Outside of the local area, the media has been silent on the police on the scene beating and arresting journalists, after first attempting to stop them from recording.

Striking and surprising that the media being attacked by violent riot cops, by-and large ignored these attacks.

Last Saturday night, thousands flooded the streets of Baltimore to protest police murder of Freddie Gray. Gray died a just over a week ago after having his spinal cord severed by police who took him into custody after being filmed harassing him on the street.

Outside the Western District of Baltimore reporters were filming the protests found they were targeted by the police violence.

 

Around six police officers beaten the photo editor for City Paper, J.M. Giordano. Even though he had done nothing but filmed the police. Giordano explains "They just swarmed over me. I got hit. My head hit the ground. They were hitting me, then someone pulled me out. I kept shooting it. As soon as I got up I started taking pictures."

 

The police also attacked City Paper Managing Editor, Baynard Woods, who filmed the incident. Reuters photographer, Sait Serkan Gurbuz, was attacked and arrested. Police charged Gurbuz with disorderly conduct.
