[video] Baltimore Protester Pepper-Sprayed & Detained By Police After Curfew

A group of protesters in Baltimore stood their ground again tonight and civilly disobeyed the 10 PM curfew currently being enforced by the city. While details of this incident are obscure, we see that one officer pepper-sprays the man, and then a few seconds later another officer comes up behind him and violently pulls him to the ground by his locks. Three officers then proceed to drag his body off the street as if removing a dead deer carcass off the highway. Totally uncalled for, in my opinion.
