huevoicesdotcom @ ALL-Peoples Congress Protest
Community organizers protested against Baltimore City State's Attorney's office for recent controversial incidents that have made headlines as of late: Eliyahu Eliezer Werdsheim, a member of the Northwest Baltimore night watch group Shomrim, was charged with the assault of a 15-year-old Northwestern High School student in November. Early this month, the shooting of Baltimore City Police Officer William H. Torbit, Jr. by fellow officers. Led by Leo Burroughs, president of the Memorial Apartments Association and Sharon Black of the All-Peoples Congress, protesters expressed displeasure with the poor handling of the previous cases mentioned by the State's Attorney's office and the Baltimore City Police Department.
