Remembering the Baltimore riots of 1968
Violent riots and mayhem have engulfed Baltimore following the funeral Monday for Freddie Gray -- a 25-year-old man who died from a severe spinal cord injury while in police custody.
The governor now has National Guardsmen patrolling the streets after rioters sparked fires, looting, and countless arrests. The scene is similar to a previous time in history that was marred by turmoil -- the Baltimore riots of 1968.
As civil disturbances began spreading across the nation, the initially peaceful Baltimore day of April 6th, 1968 became increasingly violent. The riots ended with five deaths, 300 fires and over 400 arrests.
