New evidence regarding the case of what led to Freddie Gray’s death has come to light.
While many have suggested that Gray’s death was due to police negligence, the medical examiner didn’t find any proof backing that narrative.
ABC News 7 reported on how Gray wasn’t injured during his arrest and the way he sustained his fatal injury:
An investigation into the death of Baltimore resident Freddie Gray has found no evidence that his fatal injuries were caused during the videotaped arrest and interaction with police officers, according to multiple law enforcement sources.
The sources spoke to ABC7 News after being briefed on the findings of a police report tuned over to prosecutors on Thursday as well as preliminary findings made by the medical examiner’s office.
Sources said the medical examiner found Gray’s catastrophic injury was caused when he slammed into the back of the police transport van, apparently breaking his neck; a head injury he sustained matches a bolt in the back of the van.
The Baltimore Police handed their investigation over to prosecutors on Thursday.
If the prosecutors find solid enough evidence or justification to charge any of the officers, they could bring the case to a grand jury and push for an indictment.
Combine that with the statement from another prisoner in the van who said that Gray was trying to injure himself and the case is solved.
Except it’s not. It won’t matter what the prosecutor will find, or what a grand jury might decide, should it go there, because the citizens of Baltimore and half the US have already decided the cops are guilty. It is Ferguson and Michael Brown all over again, complete with imported rioters.
After Al Sharpton gets done smacking around Fox news reporters, he’ll be busy strutting down the streets to
stir up more racist garbage calm the folks down. It will be interesting to see how he blames whitey for this, since everyone from the mayor on down is black. Maybe this time he’ll just attack police in general – that seems to be where this trend is going.
Baltimore police said they will wrap up their investigation Friday and turn the results over to the Baltimore state’s attorney’s office, which will decide whether to seek an indictment. Six police officers, including a lieutenant and a sergeant, have been suspended.
What should have affected only a handful of people has instead affected the entire country, but it didn’t have to be this way.
If she could make such a profound difference with such a small move, why can’t they see it today?
