The riots in Baltimore are all too familiar now, but every now and again the world sees or hears something that shocks us. This time, it was the ‘Colombian drug cartel-like’ kidnapping of a well-known protester Joseph Kent, on Tuesday night as the CNN cameras rolled.

Kent, a 21-year-old Morgan State University student, who was very active in the Michael Brown protests in Ferguson, can be seen in the video with his hands in the air in front of a line of riot-geared clad police officers just before 11 p.m. A few seconds later, a National Guard Humvee rolled along-side Kent and the officers can be seen ambushing him, but when the truck rolls away, he is gone! 

Everyone is asking “Where is Joseph Kent,” from supporting activist to celebs like Talib Kweli urging the public to “stay woke.”
