Video: Protestors Clash With Police as Baltimore Demonstrations Turn Violent

In the hours since Freddie Gray’s funeral on Monday, lootings and fires have broken out in Baltimore.

Clashes between Baltimore Police and protesters turned violent Monday afternoon following the funeral of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black Baltimore resident who died in police custody earlier this month. Baltimore Police say that at least seven officers were wounded when groups of people, mostly young men, began throwing bricks and other objects at officers.

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
