A former Baltimore police officer exposes the horrors he saw on the force

Former Baltimore police officer Michael Wood spoke out on Twitter about the horrifying acts of abuse he saw during his time on the force, reinforcing many of the concerns raised by the death of Freddie Gray while in police custody and the Baltimore Police Department's broader history of brutality.
