Angry CNN Reporter Goes Off On Baltimore Cop: ‘Are We Under Martial Law?’

CNN’s Miguel Marquez got a bit feisty when a Baltimore cop told him to move away. He said that the media is not being allowed to talk to some protesters and they’ve been cordoned off.

One cop showed up and ordered Marquez to move down. Marquez asked why, and the cop said, “Because I asked you too, sir!”

Marquez then angrily asked, “Are we under martial law?” He snapped a bit at the cop and told Don Lemon, “It is shocking that in a city like this that it would come to this.” He added, “I think that the First Amendment and the Constitution still applies in Baltimore.”

A little while later, Marquez kept going on about how “there are different rules that apply” to the police and how Baltimore isn’t a police state.
