I don't do battle of the web links. If you can't make your own argument, then it's not worth anyone's time to address.

Thank you for saying this, brother. I love you.

Baltimore police say will not issue report on Friday on death of Freddie Gray






April 29 (Reuters) - Baltimore police said on Wednesday they will not issue a
report on the death of Freddie Gray, who died earlier this month of a spinal
injury suffered while in police custody, but they will instead turn over the
department's findings to prosecutors.





"There is not a report that is going to be issued," Captain Eric Kowalczyk of
the Baltimore Police Department said, adding that he was attempting to clear up
confusion in the media over that process.

Maybe this is why the authorities will not release the reports when done.

If true, it would explain why we was unable to walk when police were arresting him. Now what explains then not getting him prompt medical attention?

Yeah he did. And, when they were picking him up off of the ground he moved his left leg forward to get it under him and he put weight on it (a paralyzed person cannot move, he could). He was seriously, if not severely injured, but he was not "paralyzed" before getting into the van. Also, why would they, later, bother putting leg restraints on someone who is paralyzed?
