A former Baltimore police officer has taken to Twitter to publicly blow the whistle on incidents of corruption and inappropriate behaviour that he saw during his police career.
Michael A Wood Jr is a former officer with the Baltimore Police Department and former United States Marine, who yesterday announced he would “start tweeting the things I’ve seen and participated in, in policing that is corrupt, intentional or not.”
His long list of allegations against Baltimore’s police sheds new light on a force that has come under harsh criticism recently due to the death of Freddie Grey, who died while being transported to a police station after being arrested on 12 April.
