So last night a couple of interviews with Baltimore Cops who wished to remain anonymous give some inside information to that arrest and condition of Freddie Gray.
If these statements are proven to be true the cops that are now going to trial will most likely be criminally vindicated.
From one cop: The toxicology report shows Freddie had Heroine and Pot in his system when arrested. This is important given what is now being said about the reason Freddie was arrested which was that officers saw him doing a suspected drug deal (exchanging a small package for cash) in an area known for drug sales and when they went to confront both Freddie and the buyer they both ran in different directions.
When Freddie was caught he didn't have any drugs on him (surprise,surprise) so they listed other reasons for probable cause.
The officer went on to say that in that area when drug dealers are confronted they either run and toss the drugs or swallow the drugs.
Now if you look back to what Freddie (alleged) was found to have in his system at the time that lends credence to the idea he ate his own drugs to avoid a drug arrest and this alone could have led to his death.

Hmmmm, plot thickens doesn't it????

Can't wait for them to release all the information...

So heroin and pot would make his spinal cord herniate and his voice box crush itself??? What like when the alien creature comes out from the inside out??? WOW?! That's freaky. You're right, the cops are home free.

OH HAPPY DAY!

You know what would've prevented all of this? If he had lived like a law abiding citizen like the majority of people.

I believe, sometimes, even law abiding citizens come under attack by a brutal police force, think Jonathan Ferrell from SC.

Why of course, victim blaming has become the new norm.

I wouldn't expect these now XOfficers would say anything different. Seems taking responsibilities for one's actions or inactions is not common.

Yes, interviews with anonymous sources who say... just like the statement "leaked" to the Washington Post that the second prisoner in the van witnessed Gray intentionally trying to hurt himself. A witness who at the time was in police custody and feared for his life if his name was made public.

Only problem is that as soon as he got out of jail Donta Allen couldn't wait to say that he never made such a statement that in fact he couldn't see Gray and who didn't hear anything that would indicate the Gray was trying to hurt himself.

And the back story

He didn't want to get murdered by thugs in his community for his earlier statement so he backpeddled... let's not make CD assumptions... OK? I an quite sure any statement he made has been tape recorded and submitted with the investigation package...

Its so funny how you can act like you know what happened before anyone else does. Square peg...meet round hole. It might fit...it might not..we will find that out. But if it doesn't we are gonna take a hammer and make it fit anyway.

Excuse me?

Where have I indicated I know what happened before anyone else does?

I responded to the OP where they claim other anonymous officers blames the victim for what happened to him. I am entitled to my own opinions or beliefs like anyone else here.

That was my response.

So being insulting isn't the way to go.

The unidentified prisoner, who was separated from Gray by a partition and never saw saw him during their six blocks in the vehicle together, said the 25-year-old was “banging against the walls” and put himself at risk in back of a police van, according to a police report obtained by the Washington Post Wednesday.

The prisoner’s account of Gray allegedly attempting to harm himself has not been backed up by evidence or other sources. The prisoner and the Baltimore Police Department did not comment on it.
