Not: Protesters in Baltimore clash with police during demonstrations

Thousands of protesters gathered in Baltimore over the unexplained death of Freddie Gray, who died while in police custody.

While most of the thousands of protesters were relatively calm and peaceful, some of the protesters started destroying property and antagonize the law enforcement officers who had gathered to ensure everyone was safe.

Twitter and Snap Chat were abuzz with pictures of police in riot gear, protesters who had been pepper sprayed and one man who smashed the window of a police car.

No matter the problem is that people are protesting against, they must remember that confronting the police in a violent manner is not an valid way of progressing socially.

Hot: Obama brings out anger translator during White House Correspondents’ Dinner

During his speech at the White House Correspondents’ dinner, President Barack Obama brought out his anger translator, Luther, to add some emotions to his speech.

Many laughs and cheers came from the least stiff reporters and news outlets, and some awkward shuffles from the likes of Fox News and CNN due to some jokes at their expense.

Who is Luther? Luther was none other than Keegan-Michael Key from the Comedy Central series “Key & Peele.” Together the president and Key touched on topics from poor reporting to disruptions in the Senate.

The speech ended with Obama becoming angry without the aide of “Luther” and almost shouting “bull****” in the end.
