(BALTIMORE) — Civil rights groups in Baltimore expect thousands to march Saturday to protest the death of Freddie Grey while in police custody.

Police are planning to keep a close eye on protesters as they march to City Hall from the area where Grey was arrested.

“We have extensive law enforcement resources to assist; some will be seen, some will not,” said Baltimore Police Deputy Commissioner Dean Palmere.

On Friday, police released a new video of Grey’s arrest, showing the 25-year-old screaming and unable to walk as officers dragged him into a transport van.

Protesters such as Ted Sutton are upset that the 6 officers involved in the incident haven’t been charged, and are instead suspended with pay.

“I know if this situation isn’t resolved, it’s going to be unrest,” said Sutton.
