RadioWHO Podcast Episode 06: Shawn Carrie on Baltimore’s Civil Unrest and the Violation of Civil Liberties

Shawn Carrie is a New York-based journalist who, while covering the Baltimore riots following the death of Freddie Gray, was shot in the head by a police pepperball and then arrested and held without being charged. When Carrie demanded that police respect his rights, police were quick to remind him that in a State of Emergency his constitutional rights “go out the window.”

While the civil unrest has amounted to an estimated $9 million in property damage, the damage done to civil liberties of Baltimore residents — and the consequences of this for all Americans — is immeasurable.

Today, WhoWhatWhy’s Guillermo Jimenez sits down with Carrie to get his side of the story.
