It seems as if all the riots and protests (organized at least…the looting still had no real purpose) have not gone in vain.
A medical examiner has ruled Freddie Gray’s death a homicide, after the 25 year old died from a severed spine while handcuffed in the back of a police van. Baltimore State Attorney Marilyn Mosby declared that the officers “illegally arrested” Gray and therefore there is probably cause to try them as criminals.
Mosby stated that Gray had requested medical attention while in the van (he was asthmatic and has asked for an inhaler, which he never received) and was held against his will with no probable cause for his arrest.
While the other arrested passenger in the van claimed that Freddy inflicted his wounds against himself, thank God for science (and actual intellect) which proved that Freddy sustained head injuries from not being seat belted by the officers and having a more than normal aggressive ride.
Among the chargers the officers face, there is second-degree murder, involuntary manslaughter, assault and misconduct in office.
It’s good to see justice will hopefully be served, but we really need to get to a place where there is no need for it in the first place.
