I’m plotting now.” The post comes as racial tension boiled over in Baltimore when protests turned violent as rioters caused widespread damage throughout the city. The arrest comes amid rising racial tensions in Baltimore following the April 19 death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who died from spinal injuries he suffered while in police custody. In December, NYPD officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu were assassinated in their patrol car in Brooklyn hours after the shooter Ismaaiyl Brinsley posted that he was “putting wings on pigs today.” The Instagram post included the hashtag #ShootThePolice.
