But I don't get it, Faux News said that he was big time criminal, who was arrested by the nicest cops in the world who gently put him in a van. Where he then proceeded to sever his own spine by bashing himself into a bolt on the van.

Now we hear from the DA, that he was a totally innocent man who was kidnapped by six goon cops, who savagely broke his neck, threw him into a van and refused to get him medical help until it was too late.

This does not compute. Please explain all knowledgeable police apologists. Do you all feel any guilt now for blaming the innocent victim?

Latest developments:
Baltimore's city government has brought in Judy Smith, the crisis communications manager whose life story became the basis for the hit TV show "Scandal," to navigate issues related to the Freddie Gray case, a source familiar with the arrangement said.
Five of the six officers charged were in custody as of around 1 p.m. Friday, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said Friday. She said she ordered her city's police commissioner to "immediately suspend" all of the officers facing charges.
"There is no place in the Baltimore city Police Department" for officers involved in misconduct, racism and corruption, the mayor said. "There will be justice for Mr. Gray, there will be justice for his family, and there will be justice for the city of Baltimore."


Full story:
Six Baltimore police officers will face charges in the death of Freddie Gray, the city's prosecutor said Friday in an unexpected announcement that brought cheers from protesters and words of protest from the police union.


The announcement by Baltimore City State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby left no doubt about what she thinks happened April 12, when Gray was arrested: The 25-year-old died, she said, after suffering "a severe and critical neck injury" while being transported "handcuffed, shackled by his feet and unrestrained" inside a police van. It is against police policy to transport a prisoner without proper restraints such as a seat belt.
But the city's police union insisted that none of the officers was responsible for Gray's death.

"To the contrary, at all times, each of the officers diligently balanced their obligations to protect Mr. Gray and discharge their duties to protect the public," wrote Baltimore City Fraternal Order of Police President Gene Ryan.

I sure get tired of idiots repeating that lame claim.
Zimmy is an idiot, not a hero.
He's also not guilty in the Martin case.

Guilt? No. I like Fox. There has been no trial yet; they deserve their day in court. I don't know about other people but I am looking at the future of law abiding people in America and the view is not pretty. Tail seems to be wagging the dog. The biggest problem America has is the crooked court system. Police arrest the criminal; the courts let them out. If the police are guilty, maybe that will work for them too.

I just thought there was a rush to judgment by too many people burning down buildings. As bad as the courts are, that is the only justice system we have.

Anyways, I'm not sure if there was intent and if that can be proven without a doubt in court, so it'll be interesting how it plays out in court.
Without a REASONABLE doubt - that is the usual standard and is more attainable.

sure, that's why the US, with 5% of the world's population has 25% of world's prison population, cause the crooked courts let them out

"Charged" is one thing.
