USA: Michael Jackson gives the lowdown on Baltimore protests

Michael Jackson impersonator Dimitri Reeves gave his two cents on the protests that swept Baltimore this week, after attracting huge crowds at the demonstrations with his smooth moves and impressive moonwalking skills, speaking in an interview on Wednesday. During the protests, violence broke out and people were seen looting, Reeves commented that "the looters won't buy" him, and that dancing for the protesters was just "a beautiful moment". The protests erupted on Monday just hours after the funeral of 25-year-old Freddie Gray, who died in police custody on April 19, 2015. Gray's family say he suffered a severe spinal injury, that his voice box was crushed and his neck was snapped before he went into a coma and died. Police reports indicate that these injuries were sustained after his arrest. A state-of-emergency has also been declared in the city, imposing a 22.00 to 05.00 curfew, which will last for at least a week. The National Guard was also activated and have been dispatched to the area.
