We didn't forget, and my story mentions the funeral was that day, though perhaps I should have spent more time in the story -- and we in the podcast -- articulating that fact.

I got up early this morning to work on a complicated story I've been reporting for a couple weeks -- I'm always best at writing in the morning -- and I have now written three separate ledes that I like, don't want to lose, and will never work. Progress!

The most powerful sidewalk chalk messages you will ever see courtesy of my young neighbors. A strong reminder of the most important task facing us from the generation who is most impacted. Also a reminder that the children are always watching and listening!

β€œThere go them Douglass kids who started the riot,” the woman said. β€œYou don’t even know the whole story about how it all went down,” he remembered thinking. β€œTo be a Douglass student, and to have this happen to us β€” it was unfair.”

Today's the 4th anniversary of Freddie Gray's death. Here's a piece I wrote for the 1st, on the history of similar incidents in Baltimore & how longtime civil rights activists saw, in the swirling promises of change, echoes of broken promises past.

This footage is crucial to public understanding of how the disorder began in Baltimore four years ago. The official excuse for covering it up is laughable. Wonder if a pro bono FOIA lawyer could help the state understand its responsibilities?

I made that request. They refused. I asked to just be shown a series of stills to get a sense of the build up, if they didn't want me to know how the frames can pan and zoom, specifically. They refused.

Only in hindsight do you get it. I’m at Poly, those memes were everywhere, it was all the kids were talking about that day. I told them that it was likely another dumb internet meme and they should just do what they need to do and get home. Avoid obvious problems.

Re their ongoing refusal to release Mondawmin footage, claimed again this week, in response to my latest MPIA, that disclosing the location of cameras (some of which are in plain view) would "facilitate the planning of a terrorist attack."
