Peaceful protestors in Baltimore outside of the police station after Freddie Gray died.
Your police severed a young man's spine and you have the nerve to call peaceful protestors a lynch mob?
As protesters decrying Freddie Gray's death plan more rallies in Baltimore Thursday, anger is mounting over a police union's comparison of the protest to a "lynch mob."
"While we appreciate the right of our citizens to protest and applaud the fact that, to date, the protests have been peaceful, we are very concerned about the rhetoric of the protests," the Baltimore Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 3 said in a statement.
"In fact, the images seen on television look and sound much like a lynch mob."
Nah. They don't look like a lynch mob at all.
You—who kill us by the thousands and rarely pay a price—look like the lynch mob.
You—who shoot our young people, our sisters, our brothers, our fathers, our mothers, and heartlessly leave us there to die while we fight to live—look like the lynch mob.
In fact, you are the lynch mob and we are your victims.
We will protest, with passion and fervor, and your characterization of us only reveals how deeply disturbed you truly are.
