This case needs an independent, full, public and impartial airing of the facts and circumstances. Anything less will simply fuel the suspicion that the police are above the law.

The charges were filed largely for show, in order to placate the hard-core police-haters. Sinc a lot of them have little knowledge of the actual workings of the justice system, or have short memories, or might be in jail themselves by now, or are too stoned and/or drunk to care, the politicaly-inspired maneuver tends to lose its luster very quickly.

You should do a little research before making a fool of yourself. Freddie Grey's injuries couldn't have been self-inflicted. They are, however, entirely consistent with a "rough ride" which is something the BPD has become known for. They've settled lawsuits over it and paralyzed at least one person in the past. They only secure the suspect's wrists and drive erratically so as to throw the suspect around and give them no way to prevent injury. Freddie Grey's spinal injury was caused by a single impact with an object like the bolts protruding inside the back of the police van he was put in, unsecured.

Hoo boy, this would be hilarious if it were sarcasm.

Haven't watched Fox in years as I don't have a cable subscription. Waste of money. So you fail on that particular attempt at insult. But I will add that Fox is no better than the rest of the MSM. You should take lesson on that.

Seems to me the only one attempting to win the fool of the day award is anyone who argues the case where no detailed evidence has been released and thus argues assumption, opinion and fallacy as fact. You win at this, but you again failed at another attempt at insult.

My recommendation. Try sticking to the topic instead of making it about the messenger. You demonstrate perfectly what happens when you vary from that.

The Daily Mail, a tabloid, is the only one claiming this, there are no other sources reporting what you think is news.

This is basically a rewrite with a sensational headline of a CNN article, which states:

"Officials familiar with the probes also say the homicide investigation run by police investigators at most contemplated a manslaughter charge, not second degree murder as Mosby charged one of the officers, Caesar Goodson."

Sources: Police have different findings than Mosby - CNNPolitics.com

With all the attention on The Knife, the murder 2 charge against the van driver has been back-burner.

I didn't look. If you choose not to believe it because the DM reported it, that is your choice. No logic in this, but for people who have already decided the case, logic doesn't enter the picture.

Has the case against the officers been brought before a grand jury? Or does Maryland/Baltimore not use a grand jury? I recall the Ferguson grand jury took forever making a decision on the case against the cop that shot Michael Brown. Did Marilyn Mosby convene a grand jury or does anyone know?

Yea, they are talking about it right now. It doesn't look good for the DA.
