Protesters returned to Baltimore's streets Saturday to vent their outrage over the death of an African-American man from injuries he apparently sustained when he was taken into custody two weekends ago. Organizers anticipated the biggest outpouring of public anger since Freddie Gray, 25, was arrested on April 12, only to die in a coma seven days later from severe spinal injuries. Some 200 to 300 protesters set off in the early afternoon from the west Baltimore housing project where Gray was apprehended, heading toward the district police station that has been the focal point of nightly demonstrations this week. "No justice, no peace!" chanted the crowd, under a forest of banners, including one featuring portraits of 50-odd African-Americans who have died in confrontations with police officers in recent years.
