Video Shows Baltimore Protester Joseph Kent Vanish in a Crowd of Police on Live TV

Following hours of peaceful demonstrations, Baltimore police Commissioner Anthony Batts pronounced the city "stable" at a news conference Tuesday night, saying, "The curfew is, in fact, working." Now video of protester Joseph Kent being arrested is showing just what the commissioner means by "working."

Footage appears to show National Guard soldiers descending upon Kent, a 21-year-old protester violating the curfew, and forcibly bundling him into the back of an armored car. Kent was walking and had his hands up when the abduction occurred. The suddenness and speed of the maneuver had many online calling it a kidnapping.
