Transcript for Rioting Replaced by Peaceful Protests in Baltimore
And tonight, a city on edge as night falls. That the president said there is work to be done here by the police and across this country. Jim Avila now on the Numbers. What Baltimore police reportedly paid out in settlements. Reporter: At the corner where looters pillaged the streets 24 hours ago, chants today of "Hands up, don't shoot." Rioting replaced by peaceful protest. A heavily armored police vehicle stopped at an intersection by a large group of citizens with no rocks, no bottles, but plenty of anger. From test or thes reminding the nation that this started with this video of an unarmed black man dying while in police custody from a still unexplained severe spine injury. President Obama saying today what's happening in this city is a slow rolling crisis. This has been going on a long time. This is not new. And we shouldn't pretend that its news. Reporter: A "Baltimore sun" investigation found that in this city alone, nearly $6 million paid out to settle police misconduct claims since 2011. Destroying trust and building animosity between the cops on the street and the citizens they are sworn to protect. Conflict that escalated with Freddie gray's death, but began long ago. David? Jim Avila tonight here in Baltimore, as well. Jim, thank you. And one more note tonight. The orioles/white sox game canceled this evening. Tomorrow's game, we're told, will go on, but closed to the public. The stadium that holds 45,000 fans, will be empty except for the teams.
