I turn around my son is actually coming across the street with this hoodie on and a mask. At that point I just lost it. He gave me eye contact. And at that point, you know, not even thinking about cameras or anything like that. … That’s my only son and at the end of the day I don’t want him to be a Freddie Gray.
I was angry, I was shocked. You never want to see your child out there doing that.
Baltimore City Police Commissioner Anthony Batts said he saw the interaction and talked about it at a press conference.
