From Fox News.
One Baltimore police officer was charged Friday with murder, three with manslaughter and two with assault in the death of Freddie Gray, who a prosecutor said suffered a broken neck last month when he was left shackled at the feet and lying face down in a police van by officers who ignored his pleas as they made their rounds.
The death of Gray, 25, on April 19 of injuries suffered a week earlier touched off peaceful protests that degenerated into a night of rioting, looting and chaos Monday. On Friday, a crowd gathered around State’s Attorney for Baltimore Marilyn Mosby cheered as she said the police involved would be brought to justice in the incident. Mosby said the police had no basis for arresting Gray, and described a harrowing ride in a van driven by Police Officer Caesar Goodson, 45, who was charged with the most serious crimes, including second-degree murder.
Three of the six cops are black, by the way. But this is more about politics and race-based agenda than justice. The prosecutor has ties to Gray’s family. Conflict of interest, anyone?
A law professor from George Washington University says the officers were ‘overcharged’ and charges will likely be dropped. Which is probably what will happen.
The thugs used the riots as an opportunity to show just how much ‘black lives matter’.
The body of a man was discovered in the cab of a semi tractor-trailer located near the CVS they torched.
Five people were shot during the violence, two of them fatally:
•Andre Hunt, 28, of the 600 block of Woodgreen Circle was fatally shot in the 3800 block of Liberty Heights Ave.
•Davon William Johnson, 26, was killed in the 500 block of Edgewood St. He lived in the block, police said.
Don’t expect any protests for Johnson or Hunt. Only a few select black lives matter.
The rampage is expected to cost the city millions of dollars in damages, not to mention the loss of businesses. It’s already exceeded $25 million.
Arson, looting, assaults, and murders, committed by the ‘protesters’ seeking ‘social justice’, and so far no one has been charged.
The Demrats have controlled Baltimore for decades. You can thank their failed policies for this.
