I'm normally someone who has harsh words for the way some blacks live their lives, but this latest arrest thing is really bad for the police. It looks like they did not properly belt him in and they ignored his pleas for medical help.

I realize there are two sides to every story, and this will all come out at their trials.

I can't keep up with all the information coming out, so I'd appreciate it if someone else can shed a little light on this.
She had to have the autopsy report as part of her investigation, the autopsy report was not sent to prosecutors until this morning. The conclusion of the forensic pathologist was that Freddie Grays death was a homicide

This will be a case where every asset will be brought to bear to find the officers guilty.. more so than other criminal cases.

I'm not sure if there wasn't some purposeful overcharging in this case to apply pressure upon the defendants to seperate them...
I hope we see vigorous defense teams of lawyers.. I fear not but I hope so... I hope so so that our system can be tested and trusted... for now I'm not sure their will be blind justice...
It will remind me of the Rodney king trial ... and how its going to be a long hot summer in our cities and how any injustice perceived or real will be met with riotous behavior... for me personally I look to moving from California to living in small town America somewhere as far from this stuff as I can get.

According to CNN the Officers who did not participate in the arrest are already blaming the injuries on the cops who were involved in that.

Default What about the riot victims, Hmmm????

Will the victims of the burning and looting be given the same "justice" as the cops? People were injured, lives overturned, jobs lost and dreams shattered. What about them???? <crickets>

No one died.

But I'm sure those arrested for that type of destruction will be arrested and charged.



Heard they're heading to Wall St. next.

Just to be clear, apparently three of the six cops were "of color."

This whole thing is explosive because of race. It will be interesting to watch the reactions of the Baltimore community toward these police officers and the whole situation now that more and more facts are coming forward.
