The Sun and several other news outlets recently obtained 7,000 internal emails that Baltimore officials either sent or received during the Baltimore Uprising following the death of Freddie Gray in police custody. Initial analysis shows new details about the events that happened back in April, from the mention of "riot" before a brick was ever thrown to a free concert pop star Rihanna wanted to play that police forbade. But there is still plenty more to sift through.
This morning, City Paper obtained the emails through a Maryland Public Information Act request, and we are starting to conduct our own analysis.
In the meantime, former Sun reporter Gus Sentementes has also obtained the emails, and has uploaded them to Google Drive and posted a link in the Baltimore Tech Facebook group. You can download all 18 folders of the PDFs with the emails here.
