"Justice" and "due process" are not the same thing at least in this situation (depending on who you listen to).
It's kind of obvious what "justice" means to the Mayor and many Pols as well as many citizens and that has nothing to do with the process. It has a lot to do with "get out the rope".

It doesn't matter what justice means to the Mayor, she is not a judge, nor are the citizens. The cops will be tried in court and afforded the same due process as anyone else who is arrested so let it go now, this is just silly you are making stuff up so that you can continue to reiterate the same point over and over and over...

Did you read about the time a highway was shut down and mothers and children were forced to sit in the road handcuffed while the police searched the cars for a bankrobber?

I've heard something about this new method of operations. Maybe we've moved into a different phase and don't know it - a police state (country).

There is a flaw in your argument

No the cops will not be afforded the same due process as anyone. They will be offered bail that is actually possible to secure, they won't have to depend on a public defender so overwhelmed by clients that they rarely get a chance to even talk to them before a first arraignment.

I read all the posts here. It seems as if 'skell' means the public, a citizen, a non-police.

I am thinking it was on the news that 246 black people in Baltimore were killed by other blacks and no riots or marches on the street for any of them.

War on the police is really war on law and order in the USA. And it is very easy to see who is waging that war.

Exactly who is it you think is 'waging that war'? I think a whole lot of people are not happy with what they are seeing. The American public has a very clear sense of innate fairness and balance of power.

I think there was something like 20 arrests and there will probably be more.

Can you rephrase this? Are you saying that 246 African American people in Baltimore were killed by other African Americans, and, at the time there were no riots going on?

I agree. And what caused this particular case to be brought to trial? Video. I saw on the news a police officer smashing a woman's phone because she was videotaping an arrest. What the officer didn't know was that someone else was taping the woman getting her phone smashed by the police. By the way, it is legal to tape the police as long as you're not impeding them.

I'd predict police departments in places like Baltimore will have a difficult time retaining and recruiting Cops in the near future.

Who can risk someone dying in your custody and you being prosecuted for murder just to appease an angry crowd.

So it was Gray who decided to be swung around the back of the police van by his wrists? Gray decided to smash his spine into a bolt at such a velocity as to sever it?
You apologists are too much.
