Fifteen police officers were injured by teenage protesters throwing bricks and rocks who clashed with cops on the streets of Baltimore after Freddie Gray was laid to rest on Monday. One officer was rendered unconscious in the fight and two remain hospitalized. "They have broken bones. One of them is unresponsive. This is not okay," said Captain Eric Kowalczyk at a press conference. Demonstrators, the majority of them students, pelted SWAT teams, who responded with tear gas. Word of the protests spread via social media and fliers that urged young people to take to the streets for a "purge" at Mondawmin Mall. The CVS was looted and set on fire in the clashes, and police reportedly shot rubber bullets to disperse the crowds. Five hundred more Maryland police and 5,000 national law enforcement agents have been requested to report to Baltimore.
