Shocking Video Shows Baltimore Store Owner Dragged from Shop and Beaten in the Street

Baltimore, MD

As Baltimore continues to burn from racially motivated riots, some of the scenes on the streets are shocking the nation. One such incident shows a Baltimore shop owner being hauled out of his shop and beaten on the street.

The video taken from the upper floor of a building across the street reveals a crowd of rioters and looters gathering outside a shop. Suddenly the door is flung open and the owner thrown out bodily.

The man is sucker punched and thrown to the ground, where several rioters kick and trample him, leaving him unmoving on the sidewalk.

The situation has deteriorated so badly in Baltimore that the Maryland National Guard had to be called in to restore peace. A curfew will also go into effect tonight.
