Bealefeld, Baltimore's police commish, says:
Those guys got fairly nominal sentences for some heinous stuff that they did to these kids, and if it happened in a white neighborhood in any other community in this state, we'd still be talking about it, and people would be talking about life sentences.... And these people get out essentially with a slap on the wrist. People need to be speaking out about this.
