Violent protests this week have laid bare the frustration of some communities in the city about how they’re treated by Baltimore police. What is the police department doing to repair these frayed relationships? We ask Chief Ganesha Martin, the Chief of Community Relations.

Then -- Media have descended on West Baltimore’s Penn North neighborhood. But, how does the glut of news cameras, microphones, pencils and pads affect actions on the ground? We take a look at the role of the media in what some call riots with the Baltimore Sun’s senior editor for investigations, David Rosenthal and Johns Hopkins political science professor Lester Spence.   

Plus: Students and teachers went back to school yesterday. We visit a high school in northeast Baltimore to learn how they’re processing this week’s unrest.
