Former Baltimore Police Commissioner Breaks His Silence

WASHINGTON —One year ago Wednesday,Baltimore erupted in riots after the funeral of Freddie Gray, an African-American man whose neck was mysteriously broken while in custody in a police van.

The police commissioner, Anthony Batts, was later fired. Since that moment, he has maintained his silence — until now.

When the rioting began, Batts remembered wondering why his officers were reacting so slowly.

“I was clinching my fists and gritting my teeth and saying, ‘Move, go! Go!” Batts told CBS News.
