A large group of protesters interrupted the main chamber of Baltimore City Hall on Monday, to disrupt the hearing where council members voted on approving Kevin Davis as police commissioner. The protesters, many of whom were allegedly students, stood up midway through the proceedings and began to object, chanting "Back up, back up, we want freedom, freedom! All these racist cops, we don't need 'em, need 'em." The protesters were then confronted by police who arrested 16 of them for refusing to leave the premises. While only two city councilmen voted against Davis being made commissioner, concerns were voiced over the length of Davis' deal, which includes a $200,000 (176,000 euro) annual salary through 2020 and a severance package worth $150,000 (132,000 euro). Baltimore witnessed much unrest following the death of Freddie Gray in police custody on April 19, 2015. Six police officers have been charged in relation to Gray's death, with Maryland State Attorney Marilyn Mosby announcing on May 2 that the officers involved in Gray's case had been suspended and arrested on charges ranging from second-degree murder to assault.
