Demonstrators chant as they head into Baltimore City Hall to protest the confirmation hearing of Police Commissioner Kevin Davis on Monday, October 19, 2015.

A group of African-American demonstrators have taken to the streets of Baltimore, Maryland to protest against police brutality and the appointment of a new white police commissioner.

 

After the Baltimore City Council voted to confirm Kevin Davis as commissioner of the Baltimore Police Department on Monday, protesters briefly disrupted the proceedings before being escorted outside the council chambers by police.

 

The demonstrators converged with other protesters outside and marched toward Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, with groups of police following them and issuing warnings for them to get onto the sidewalk.

 

"Kevin Davis does not at all have any of our interests at heart," Makayla Gilliam-Price, a 17-year-old founder of the group City Bloc, told the crowd during an impassioned speech. "I am extremely fed up, and this will not be the end."

 

The protest followed another last week, in which 16 protesters were arrested after staging a sit-in inside of Baltimore City Hall to disrupt a hearing on the appointment of Davis.

 

Davis was appointed as Baltimore's interim police commissioner in July after the previous commissioner, Anthony Batts, was fired following a rapid rise in murder rates and days of racially-fueled protests and riots in April over the death of Freddie Gray in police custody.

 

Gray, a 25-year-old unarmed black man, died on April 19, a week after his encounter with 6 officers that left him with grave spinal injuries.

 

Large-scale protests have been held across the US after a series of high-profile incidents of white police officers killing unarmed African-American men, including Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri; Tamir Rice in Cleveland, Ohio; Eric Garner in New York City and Walter Scott in North Charleston, South Carolina.

When people are bona fide citizens of a country, they don't get treated in the manner we've always gotten treated in this country. These Caucasians have NEVER treated us as sovereign citizens of america; because we're NOT!!! To white people we're niggers and that's the way they've always treated us. They sugar coat some shit sometimes to keep our mouths shut for a second, but turn around 3 times, it's back to the slaughtering/hating business as usual.

I'd been following this story very closely.  They got rid of Dr. Batts, who was open to solving the police-community issues, and replaced him with his assistant.  The interim chief, Kevin Davis, has been extra hard on protesters and other assembled outside of the pre-trial hearings for the 6 Freddie Gray police cases.  I'll post more on this as it becomes available.  

They could eliminate half the court system and all the rest of the systems. We do something, we get shot, we get sentenced to prison sentences, we die in prison or die before there's even a trial and if a cop's trigger happy or scared as they are all the damn time, it's curtains right there on the spot. America only needs to assign a couple folks to the "criminal just us system", we're going to pay the price they set for us because WE'RE THEIRS to do with as they please. Black mothers' sons and daughters don't mean shit to the United States of America; they've shown us continuously for 500 years and it's ongoing. You can march, scream, holler, break out in song, shine their fuckin' shoes. It's not going to make an ounce of difference. I've been here since the 40's; what Jackie Robinson faced, folks are still facing. White folks bamboozle our behinds EVERY DAY. Their hatred is too firmly entrenched on our behinds; they're damn near born with it. Their mothers' pick up the babies and whisper in their ears: "You will absolutely hate niggers for your entire lifetime; do whatever you need to do by any means possible and impossible, just do"!!!!!!!! Pats the little fucker on the ass, and the "fun" begins for them and continues for us.
