( 4UMF NEWS ) Police Use Tear Gas To Enforce Curfew:
aw enforcement officers fired tear gas canisters and arrested protesters as they began clearing the streets for the first night of Baltimore’s mandatory curfew.
On Monday, Baltimore mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake set a citywide curfew between 10 pm and 5 am, but by 10:50 some protesters still remained in the streets as officers in tactical gear carrying shields continued advancing forward.
Officers also fired rubber bullets at protesters who refused to disperse, CNN reports. But overall the scene appeared quiet, although at least one arrest was quickly carried out in front of CNN cameras.
Credentialed press, who apparently make up the majority of the people left on the street, are exempt from the curfew.
With Baltimore curfew going into effect, police making arrests after group started attacking officers w/ rocks & bricks.
