Now the second day after a federal prosecutor announced charges against six police officers suspected of being involved in the death of an unarmed black man, thousands are again gathering on the streets of Baltimore to protest his death.

Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old African-American, was arrested on April 12 for possession of a switchblade, and died a week later as a result of spinal cord injuries received while in police custody. The officers involved in the case denied using any force against Gray during or after the arrest. However, the video recorded by witnesses shows that Gray had been dragged to the police van while screaming in pain.

Protests earlier this week led to businesses being burned down, smashed cars including police cruisers, a citywide curfew and mass arrests.

However, people from around the country are continuing to show up to continue what has become the latest chapter in a movement denouncing police brutality.
