All these fools out there partying,dancing and politicians slapping themselves on the back for what? Oh, I know the riots will stop (for now).
Let's see what can be proven at trial, I'll bet most of those charges will not be upheld except civilly.
On what do you base this guess?

Honestly I hate wasting time responding to comments like yours but I refuse to let people talk smack without challenging it.
I agree.

People make these empty, talking point statements yet fail to follow up with any substance.

"I think these charges are politically motivated."

Great. Why do you think that? Who would be involved in this politically motivated move? Why? What have you seen or read that would lead you to believe this? If the officers aren't at least suspicious in their actions, then what happened to Freddie Gray? How do you believe he died?

Its funny that you are worried about these cops getting a fair trial. From what I've seen their trials are anything but fair but not in the way you seem to think.

Furthermore, are you just as worried about the thousands of poor suspects who can't afford attorneys getting fair trials? Somehow I doubt it.

There are many different types of complications that can result from injuries
to the spinal cord that can lead to death,” Witham said.


The term “blunt force trauma” has been used to describe the injuries Gray
suffered sometime between a chase with Baltimore Police officers and his ride in
a police van.


“When someone says blunt force trauma, what does that actually mean,”
Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts said in an interview with ABC2 News
Friday afternoon. “Does that come from a person falling? Does that come from
striking an individual? Does that come from pulling a head back? Does that come
from twisting the neck?”


Gray’s spinal cord was severed by nearly 80 percent, officials said.


“Typically we would a spinal cord injury or severe spinal cord injury in the
setting of a high speed type of injury – a motor vehicle accident, sporting
injuries, falls that are significant,” Witham said.

What leads me to believe the charges were partially if not totally political in nature was the statements the S.A. made at the end of reading the charges and to a lesser point that she never indicated where or how the injuries happened as is usual.

Just so it's understood, what I mean by politically motivated I mean the depth and breadth of the charges are being used to shut down the rioting and mollify the public (saving the city money on policing) AND to lend cover to her should a jury find them not guilty with the inevitable "the jury has spoken".

There's now (last night) more information being stated by police officers that if true could seriously damage the states case.
If this information is proven true (toxicology results,probable cause for arrest) one would wonder why it hasn't been revealed sooner.
