In Baltimore

The (familiar and simple) story the mainstream media is telling us about what's happening in Baltimore doesn't match the on-the-street stories of the regular people who are describing what they're seeing and experiencing.

Why?

Here are a few tweets of people describing their experiences in Baltimore today:

And here's an interesting article from the Baltimore Sun, dated September 28, 2014, about their police department's use of undue force (with upsetting photos): http://data.baltimoresun.com/news/police-settlements/
