A Baltimore police captain is imploring his colleagues to act more like guardians and less like warriors in an attempt to heal some of the unrest between his department and the city its sworn to protect.

There are still many unanswered questions around the death of Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old who died from spinal injuries while in police custody. In a scene captured by Baltimore Sun reporter Colin Campbell, a protestor tells captain Desmond Carter-Bey that, “he asked for the paramedics three times.”

“It’s not fair, captain.”

Carter-Bey agreed.

Gray was put in the back of a police transportation vehicle on April 12. According to Baltimore’s police commissioner, Gray wasn’t properly buckled up in that vehicle, and suffered spinal injuries that would later lead to his death on April 19.

“The difference between warriorship and guardianship is a necessity for us to flip the switch,” Carter-Bey told The Guardian.

The morning after riots tore through Baltimore, its citizens began cleaning up the debris.
