Stop the violence.
Last year, the country was up in arms after the death of Freddie Gray occurred while the Baltimore native was in police custody. Residents of the city burst into riots, protests, and marches all throughout the city in hopes of sending a message to the government about the city’s law enforcement. While the case was ruled a homicide, not one officer was found guilty of murder from the tragic death. Today, groups of artists, activists, and more are uniting to try and help stop the violence within Baltimore. One popular rapper in particular, however, faced a true tragedy while rallying against violence in the streets of the city this past week.
This is the saddest story you’ll read today.
