Ed. Note: With our recent coverage focusing almost entirely on the protests I have been deficient in some posts that I would normally cover. I will continue to focus on the protests but include other posts as well. I especially did want to update what happened in Bloomingdale last Sunday because two people were sadly killed. One was 81-year-old Donald Malloy.
Full report from MPD:
