I'm Shocked No One Has Started A Thread On The Baltimore Riots

The knife found on Freddie Gray was not a switchblade and therefore legal. Gray was illegally arrested according to State 's Attorney Mosby.

Freddie Gray begged the police for medical help, and they ignored him. The second prisoner in the police van says officers took care of handling him at police district before tending to Freddie Gray who was unresponsive. The autopsy showed no evidence Gray banged his head against van wall.

Before Freddie Gray the Baltimore Police left Dondi Johnson paralyzed from the waste down after a rough ride and paid him $7.4 million.

Before Freddie Gray the Baltimore Police paralyzed Jeffrey Alston from the neck down in a rough ride and paid him $37 million.

Disgusting.

Wow!

I'm still having a hard time figuring out why everyone is so mad up there. It just doesn't add up.

Don't take this the wrong way, but you should be watching the news now.......................

The truth should come out on this. I have to wonder how they came to Charging the cops if the ME hasn't come out with a report yet. Maybe it has. The indicted officers will surely have their say in court and if this is flimsy and the cops are acquited, then this could be a Rodney king event. The riots were bad enough. Everything is Now Race Based and its just not reality.

I think contributing cause comes into effect given the fact he was shackled but not Seat belted in. I can't see how the cop driving the van Meant for Grey to get hurt, so its very fuzzy and why riot? Its not as though the police were trying to injure the guy, or that seems to be the case.

I just listend to Sean Hannity to get the REAL news that the MSM is hiding from us. He interviewed an anonymouse Baltimore Police Officer with a voice-changer who said Freedie Gray had MARIJUANA and HEROIN in his urine, and former LAPD detective Mark Fuhrman who said the prosecutor is trying to make thisPOLITICAL and should recuse HERSELF.

I am surprised that no one has mentioned that Baltimore is a monolithically Republican City. Republican mayor, one hundred percent Republican city council, Republican police chief who is married to a Republican Congresswoman. Heck, there hasn't been Democrat hold significant political office in Baltimore for thirty years.

Where did they find so many black Republicans all in one city?

so is this where we say that this provides empirical proof that Democrat policies aren't doing so well either?

50 years, failed policies, growing unemployment among blacks, failed school systems (while record amounts of money is being pumped into them) so your answer would be yes!

Freddie Gray never had a chance

By Eugene Robinson May 1

Here is the key finding in the Freddie Gray case: Police had no legitimate reason to arrest him in the first place.

The ostensible charge against Gray that he had an illegal switchblade was false, according to Baltimore City States Attorney Marilyn Mosby. The folding knife found in his pocket was of a design that is perfectly legal under Maryland law, Mosby said. Gray never should have been put into the police van where he suffered a fatal injury to his spine.

Now does everyone understand the anger in Baltimore?

The assumption that police officers made from the beginning was that Gray must be guilty of something. He was standing on a street corner not a crime. He made eye contact with one of the officers who approached him also not a crime. He ran away still not a crime.

But he was a young African-American man in a depressed inner-city neighborhood, so he enjoyed a presumption of guilt, not of innocence. He never had a chance.

Running from the police is not a crime. It is true that courts have given police more latitude in high-crime areas, so the officers might have been able to defend their decision to chase Gray. But once they had caught him and found he was not in violation of any law police had no justification whatsoever for taking him into custody.

Police officers exercise discretion every day. They dont stop everyone they see walking in the street, selling loose cigarettes, driving with a broken tail light or loitering on a high-crime corner. They make choices. Far too often, they choose to assume that black men must be guilty of something and look for reasons to arrest them.

Imagine what would happen if police cruised the nations wealthiest suburbs, looking for excuses to arrest people. Imagine the outrage if officers regularly patrolled golf courses, taking middle-aged white men into custody for illegally betting on the outcome of a match. Imagine how people would react if such a trumped-up arrest ended in the death of the person being arbitrarily detained.

It is gratifying that six police officers have been charged in Grays death. Justice, this time, will have a fighting chance. But the Black Lives Matter campaign should continue until they actually do.
