This is not thread of "hate" or "discrimination" but this thread is about people who still have common sense, these people will understand that these protests is only to earn money and to loot and murder!
As Baltimore’s destructive #BlackLivesMatter riots continue to rage, some new information has been revealed about the gentleman they’re burning Baltimore down for.

According to the Maryland Department of Justice, Freddie Gray had the 18 documented arrests below, at a minimum:
FREDDY GRAY
And you still think that man with at least 18 arrests and serious traumas who were running from police instead of sitting at home was not guilty?

I agree. He clearly should have had his spine severed after the first 9 arrests. After 18 arrests, he should have had his entire spinal column ripped out, Mortal Kombat style.

If it wasn't for the stupid war on drugs, he wouldn't even have a record. He sounds like a guy who had never hurt a person in his life.

While I believe we have become a nation who blames the victim, just more smut to muddy the waters of police brutality, why does he wind up dead?

Sure, his arrests would matter when he is in front of the judge. Seems to me his due process wasn't met since he never got in front of a judge.

Since his spine was 80% severed, his larynx crushed, doesn't police brutality mean a darn thing?

I have posted an article that Freddie Gray did not have neck surgery and he had a right to ride his bike without being profiled.

What did he do to be stopped in the first place. His attorney has stated, this knife he had on him was legal.

Agreed. Drug arrests in this Country don't appeal to me as bona fide indicators of malfeasance in a population. It's just a socioeconomic byproduct of the bogus war on drugs and the correctional facility pork barrel industry it shamelessly supports. Every social policy measure in this Country has subverted itself into a jobs program.

Drugs need to be de-criminalized yesterday, and I'm not even a supporter or user of recreational drugs mind you. Portugal figured it out, but to slaughter the cash cow cold turkey by implementing such a paradigm shift? Hell no! Too many interested parties who depend on the income from the correctional/LEO industry, and it is a commercial industry no doubt about it.

This! I've alluded to this same sentiment on the Baltimore thread in the P&C forum, but it seems to fall on deaf ears! Prohibition is a failure, and only serves to create a black market, which in essence increases crime! I am however; not above a toke or two! And it sure beats messing with the other crap!

So that's a good excuse to sever his spinal cord and kill the man? Common sense? Police need to realize that the public is on to their bullying. Everyone has camera phones. They are going to have to retrain some of these cops or they may end up in jail themselves.

Arrests aren't the same as conviction.

Regardless of the crime, it is not the police departments job to play judge, jury and executioner.

Even scumbag criminals should have the expectation of personal safety once they are arrested and in custody. End of story.

There's unconfirmed information leaking out that Gray had severe spinal injuries due to a car accident and had surgery on his spine just a week before his arrest. I will repeat - this is still unconfirmed - but it has been confirmed already that he had a structured settlement from Allstate for a car accident he had been in and was in the process of seeking a lump sum payment for.

If this is true, he should have been home in bed recuperating - not out getting into MORE trouble and evading arrest, knowing what his physical condition was.
