As hundreds of journalists, politicians and celebrities hobnobbed Saturday at the annual White House Correspondents Dinner — which has been dubbed “Nerd Prom” — looting and rioting broke out just 40 miles down the road in Baltimore.

Demonstrators gathered near Baltimore’s city hall early Saturday to protest the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who died a week after being arrested by police on April 12.


I think it's going to be an... interesting summer.

City Paper photo editor J.M. Giordano beaten by police at Freddie Gray protest

 City Paper Photo Editor J.M. Giordano was tackled and beaten by Baltimore City police outside of Western District headquarters last night while covering protests over the death of Freddie Gray in police custody.

In a video shot by City Paper Managing Editor Baynard Woods you can see Giordano, wearing a green jacket, and a protester, both of whom had just been knocked to the ground by police, being beaten as Woods yells, “He’s a photographer! He’s press!”
