Rebellion in Cincinnati!

Cincinnati residents take to the streets for the third day in a row to protest the police killing of 19 year old Timothy Thomas. Mayor threatens to bring in National Guard.
Thomas, unarmed, was gunned down while trying to flee from a white Cincinnati police officer who attempted to arrest him on a number of misdemeanor warrants, and is the fourth Black man killed by the Cincinnati police in the last six months. As police attempted to quell the demonstrations Tuesday with tear gas, rubber bullets, and pepper spray, hundreds angry demonstrators took to the streets, trashing stores and barricaded downtown streets. Over 60 protestors have arrested, at least 20 hospitalized with injuries, and many more were treated for injuries on the scene. Police in riot gear have surrounded City Hall, as demonstrations spread throughout the city. On Wednesday evening, Cincinnati Mayor Charlie Luken threatened to unleash the National Guard within the next 48 hours after a police officer was shot during the full day of street protests.
