Fox News reported:

Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts said during a press conference that at least 15 officers were injured during the violent protests in Baltimore on Monday.

He stated that at least six of those injured officers suffered “serious injuries” from being pelted with bottles, rocks and other debris by protesters in the city throughout the day.

In one video captured by local news station WBALTV’s helicopter, a photographer was seen being shoved, punched and kicked by the rioters.

Another video caught a white man being dragged out of a liquor store and beaten before thugs looted the store.

Speculation on social media was that the man was the store owner.

The man’s condition was not immediately known.

One of the most highly publicized incidents of reckless abandon was the looting and burning of a local CVS pharmacy. Even after firefighters arrived on the scene, some of the agitators were caught by CNN cameras cutting a fire hose being used to put out the blaze.
