He can tell his family everything he wants, doesn't mean he didn't do something wrong.

It also does not matter that he is black. What is most important is that he is blue. It's well documented that minority officers are just as bad as white officers. A crooked cop's a crooked cop.

As Charlie would say - "you're all crooked!"

A look at the 6 officers charged in Freddie Gray's death

Six officers are charged in Freddie Gray's death from injuries he suffered while in police custody. State's Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby says the officers repeatedly failed to get Gray medical treatment after his arrest. The police officers union has said they are not responsible for Gray's death.
Here is a look at each of the six officers.
___
OFFICER CAESAR GOODSON
Goodson was the driver of the van that transported Freddie Gray, and he faces the most serious charges. Mosby said Friday that Goodson repeatedly failed a total of five times to seatbelt Gray in the transport vehicle. Overall, Goodson faces six charges, including "second-degree depraved heart murder," which carries a potential 30-year sentence.

Goodson, 45, has been on the force since 1999. Friends describe him as a family man who likes to watch football and works part time as an auto mechanic at a shop specializing in Saabs. With help, he restored a green Saab convertible, a car one friend says he only takes out a few times a year. He wasn't scheduled to work on the day Gray was arrested but had been asked to work overtime, friends said.
A friend who worked with him as a mechanic said Goodson had hoped to retire in several years.


LT. BRIAN RICE
Rice was on bike patrol when he made eye contact with Freddie Gray on a Baltimore street April 12. Gray ran, and Rice pursued him. Bike patrol officers Garrett Miller and Edward Nero joined the pursuit.
Rice, 41, is the most senior officer to be charged. He joined the police force in 1997 and was promoted to lieutenant in 2011, police said. Records obtained by The Associated Press from a sheriff's department and court show he was hospitalized in April 2012 following concerns about his mental health. Worries about his stability led deputies to confiscate both his official and personal guns, and his commanding officer was called. It was not immediately clear whether or when all of Rice's guns were returned.

Does anyone know why Marilyn Mosby, Baltimore State's Attorney, didn't file charges BEFORE Baltimore was burned and looted? She's trying to come across as Hero of the Day,,, and I'm not saying she isn't,,, I'm just wondering where she was before the rioting? 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.

If by some odd chance the Daily Mail is correct, looks to me like at least one officer is going to put a hold in the Blue Wall of silence, and turn as a state's witness.

It has everything to do with race as this entire situation, riots, etc etc etc is being framed as yet another Black man killed by police. So it's important to know the race of all the parties involved.

If it wasn't for that fact, nobody would have every heard of Freddie Gray.

It was a black man killed by the police. Why does the race of one police officer matter? This was S.O.P. in Baltimore for years.

exactly. they are all blue. as a black woman, i don't think i would have made it as a cop. the first time my non black coworkers did something dirty, i would be the first one to snitch. i'd rather be an outcast than a scapegoat. i'm not saying this Goodson guy isn't guilty, but I have a feeling he's going to be the hardest hit when the smoke clears. but who cares. black, white, red, or brown, dirty cops need to be taken down.

I think you're right. The driver, who, coincidentally is the only Black man.
