Breaking: In A Shocking Move, The Baltimore State’s Attorney Just Acted On The Freddie Gray Case
Acting far faster than legal analysts expected, the Baltimore State’s Attorney has determined that Freddie Gray’s death was a homicide and has slapped the six police officers involved in Gray’s arrest and transport with multiple charges, including manslaughter and misconduct. The Baltimore Sun reports that one of the officers, Caesar R. Goodson, Jr. — the driver of the van in which Gray apparently suffered a fatal injury — has been charged with second-degree murder.
The New York Times coverage of the prosecutor’s surprise announcement Friday morning noted that the state’s attorney, Marilyn Mosby, “described repeated mistreatment of Mr. Gray. She said that time and again police mistreated Mr. Gray, arresting him with no grounds, violating police procedure by putting him in cuffs and leg cuffs in the van without seat belting him and then repeatedly failing to get him medical attention.”
