    The Maryland National Guard has been activated in response to violence following the funeral of Freddie Gray Monday, the governor's office said.

    Gov. Larry Hogan signed an executive order declaring a state of emeregcy and said he would hold a press conference Monday evening to address the situation.


    "Today's looting and acts of violence in Baltimore will not be tolerated," Hogan said in an earlier statement. "I strongly condemn the actions of the offenders who are engaged in direct attacks against innocent civilians, businesses and law enforcement officers."


    Gray was injured during an arrest on April 12 and died in the hospital a week later. His funeral was in Baltimore Monday. In the afternoon clashes broke out between school students and police, starting at Mondawmin Mall and spreading across the city.


    Col. Charles Kohler, a National Guard spokesman, said before Hogan's statement that the National Guard had been monitoring events in Baltimore since Saturday through the news and had been notified to be prepared but had not received any specific requests for help.


    A formal request for help would have to be made by city officials to the Maryland Emergency Management Agency and the governor makes the final decision to call up the National Guard, Kohler said.


    The National Guard, which trains with police, will be able to provide extra manpower and help move police around the city, Kohler said. Small numbers of guardsmen will respond at first with additional soldiers called up if necessary, he said.

    Now they need to authorize the National Guard to engage any looters and rioters with live fire. That will put this thing down fast.

    It seems the politicians held back the police response and the National Guard didn't really show up until late into the night. Democrats have run this city for years, this is the result. JMO

    We have experienced America burning just 50 years ago. How could we have forgot the lessons learned in such short time? How are those years presented by our educators? We have a few blacks in Congress that lived through the sixties. Why aren't they expressing the lessons from that decade? In my view, a lot of what is happening today has a direct correlation to then and caused today in large part by what caused the sixties trouble .

    Busy hands are happy hands, so the axiom goes, but there is much truth to it. Full employment keeps America productively busy, and many citizens out of trouble. What blacks had achieved in political status and financial gain began to deteriorate when Reagan began the wage suppression battle, just less than twenty years after the gains were achieved. Then, America in all its wisdom demanding cheaper products started sending many jobs to Mexico, Taiwan, China and India. Along came the information age and all its wonders, and a new upper class had been developed. But, America began importing labor to fill many of those positions, and opened the already wide open borders to welcome non-skilled labor to take the lower pay scale jobs, too.


    Neighborhoods with high unemployment have unhappy residents, and many are going to resort to crimes. Neighborhoods infested with criminals become a priority frustration for police. Strife between the two factions continually elevate. Eventually, but sooner than later, the pot will boil over and the neighborhoods will explode as the reaction of the 1960's did.

    But today we have instead of two white brothers named Kennedy who believed in civil rights and that all Americans should have equal consideration we have two individuals with their positions who are black and promoting low wages promoting mass intake of foreigners to be America's labor supply. I do not think those doing the hell raising even know that it is not the cops they are angry at, that their enemy is the President and the Attorney General in concert with the Congress of the USA. (I am not excusing cops who do wrong in any way)

    It seems to me that we are experiencing the same pains that we healed 50 years ago, the politicians picked at the scars until they again infected them. America, I'm asking you to learn your lesson, put it in the history books correctly so that future generations do not have to do this again. How could we have been so blind sided by our politics? We must begin electing Americans rather than democrats and republicans!

    Said again and again, this time it bit us, if you do not learn from history you are destined to repeat it! What is obvious cannot be denied.

    Support grows for Baltimore protests as demonstrations spread across the U.S.

    By Ed Payne, Pat St.Claire and Ralph Ellis, CNN
    Updated 11:20 AM ET, Thu April 30, 2015

    (CNN)Momentum is growing across the country and demonstrations have spread since the Baltimore protests Tuesday over the death of Freddie Gray. Marchers are taking to the streets to support Baltimore protesters and to complain that police brutality is a problem in their own towns. Gray died from spinal cord injuries on April 19, a week after being arrested by Baltimore police.

    Demonstrations have unfolded in Boston, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Minneapolis, New York, Washington, and Ferguson, Missouri. Protests are planned Thursday in Cincinnati and Philadelphia, according to CNN affiliate WXIX and Philly.com.
    Demonstrations in Seattle; Portland, Oregon; and Oakland, California, are on tap for Friday, which is also May Day or International Workers Day -- often used to call attention to issues affecting the working class and minorities.

    In addition to Baltimore, protests took place in at least half a dozen cities Wednesday.


    New York


    In New York, 143 people were arrested Wednesday night as several hundred people converged on Union Square for what was billed as a "NYC Rise up & Shut It down with Baltimore" rally.

    A man is carried by police officers as arrests are made at New York's Union Square on Wednesday.

    New York police were out in force, pushing protesters back. Police used zip tie restraints on nearly two dozen people in the streets after a small scuffle. Social media were used to organize the protest, similar to how demonstrations were organized over the killing of Eric Garner. He died in July in Staten Island while being held by police in what appeared to be a chokehold.

    The New York Police Department also handed out fliers and used loudspeakers to tell protesters and pedestrians to stay on the sidewalk.


    One person was placed in an ambulance and taken away. The crowd headed toward Times Square.


    CNN affiliate WCBS reported
    Mayor Bill de Blasio sent a message to the protesters: "I'd say that if you want to make change, keep things peaceful." A smaller rally was held Tuesday in New York.


    Washington


    "All night, all day, we're gonna fight for Freddie Gray." That's the chant heard from about 500 protesters in the nation's capital Wednesday night.

    The mood there was almost festive, as songs by Public Enemy like "Fight the Power" played while sign-language interpreters translated the music and the chants. The protests moved to the White House, but didn't disrupt traffic.

    Eugene Puryear, the organizer of one of the groups involved in the protest, the DC Ferguson Movement, said the march was called to show solidarity with the residents of Baltimore and to bring attention to police brutality as a national issue.


    Minneapolis and Denver

    Several hundred people gathered in Gold Medal Park in Minneapolis for a rally organized by the group #BlackLivesMatter. The Minneapolis group has held similar events in the past in response to what it says is police brutality across the country.
    Violence broke out in downtown Denver on Wednesday night during a demonstration by about 100 people. Police in riot gear with military-style weapons and sticks used pepper spray on the crowd. Protesters said they were angry about police brutality around the country, including the case of Freddie Gray.
    Shortly after 7 p.m. there was a minor scuffle in Civic Center Park. Police said they used force only after one of their officers was pushed to the ground. The Denver Post reported at least five protesters -- including one whose face was bloodied -- were arrested on the scene.
    A witness said the protest was peaceful up until that point. Laura Wooldridge, a 49-year-old activist, told the Post, "The next thing I knew pepper spray was being sprayed into the audience."
    In all, 11 people were arrested. Charges included assault of a police officer, robbery, resisting police, disobedience to lawful orders, obstructing roadways and interference.
    Police said they were protecting those in the march and ensuring public safety, according to a message posted on Twitter.

    Ferguson

    Violence marked protests that took place Tuesday night in Ferguson, Missouri, where three people were shot, city police reported.
    But police said they didn't do the shooting. A 20-year-old man was arrested and the three victims were in stable condition -- two with wounds to the neck, one in the leg, police said.
    Police said about 300 people marched, with protesters throwing rocks at police, damaging four police cars and setting trash and debris on fire near the intersection of Northwinds Estates Drive and West Florissant Avenue.

    Chicago


    Hundreds of people marched in Chicago on Tuesday from police headquarters through the Southside, CNN affiliate WGN reported. One arrest was made, for reckless conduct. Protesters talked about police violence and the death of Rekia Boyd, killed by an off-duty officer in 2012. The officer was acquitted last week.
