Thousands of National Guard troops deploy in Baltimore after days of protest and violence, placing the city under a nighttime curfew. We get a live report from the streets, and talk about the history that made Baltimore into a powder keg. Plus: veteran peace activist Kathy Kelly is just out from a three-month stint in federal prison for protesting at a military base that carries out drone strikes. We’ll talk about prison . . . from the inside.
