After the riots ended in Baltimore in late April, a strange thing happened - Baltimore City Police apparently stopped policing.  In fact, the month of May was the most lethal month in the city in more than 40 years, according to the Washington Post, with 32 shootings and 9 homicides over the Memorial Day weekend alone.  Arrests are down more than 50% since the civil unrest - and according to at least one officer, "After the protests, it seems like the citizens would appreciate a lack of police presence, and that's exactly what they're getting".  Police Commissioner Anthony Batts says his officers feel confused and unsupported following the charges filed against the six officers in the Freddie Gray case.  On the next Another View we continue our discussion on the relationship between the police and the African American community with Virginian-Pilot columnist, Roger Chesley; NSU political science professor Carol Pretlow; community activist, Bill Thomas; and journalist, author and talk show host Wil LaVeistJoin us for the next Another View Round Table, Friday, June 12 at NOON on 89.5 WHRV-FM, or stream us live on this blog!

What started as peaceful protest for justice in the death of Freddie Gray while in police custody in Baltimore, boiled over into civil unrest and forced not only Baltimoreans, but the entire nation to pay attention to the issues of our inner city neighborhoods.  Sadly the issues are nothing new - high unemployment, low education, broken family structures, food deserts, racism - pick a large urban area and you will find these problems and more.  But out of the conflict has arisen a sense of community where people have come together to affect change.  On the next Another View we will examine what happened in Baltimore and explore ways to keep the positive momentum going.  Roger Chesley, Carol Pretlow, Bill Thomas and Wil LaVeist bring real talk about Baltimore on the next Another View, Friday, May 8 at NOON on 89.5 WHRV-FM or stream us live on this blog!
