Baltimore’s top prosecutor filed charges three days ago against the six police officers involved in the arrest of Freddie Gray. The police union said it’s a mistake, while protesters celebrated. Will the charges influence police policies and culture? We ask Tyrone Powers, former F-B-I agent and criminal justice expert.

Then: What happens in court now that the six officers face charges? We walk through the process and what will happen in court with a professor of constitutional law and a lawyer with the A-C-L-U.

Plus: Young people have been at the core of the protests in Baltimore, but those demonstrations are not usually led by the very young. We talk with a Digital Harbor High School senior who decided to change that and get his thoughts on how the protests can sustain themselves.

Last Tuesday, after the riots on Monday night, self-identified gang members stood with Baltimore City Council President, Jack Young, to call for calm. Their behavior sparked controversy, as some believe they need to part of the conversation about change in Baltimore, while others hold the responsible for problems in low-income neighborhoods.

In this second hour of Midday, James Timpson, director of Safe Street Park Heights, a gang violence intervention program, joins us. Plus, we hear from Steve Dixon and Blaize Connelly Duggen, directors of the Penn-North Recovery Center about how they've helped hundred of West Baltimoreans get a second chance.

And, WYPR's senior news analyst Fraser Smith gives us his view of the ascent of State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby.
