Officers indicted in death of Freddie Gray

As I believe I predicted, the politician who is currently serving as the State's Attorney of Baltimore empaneled a grand jury to indict the six officers.

Officers indicted in death of Freddie Gray | Fox News

Next, I believe, will be a preliminary hearing, unless the defendants waive their rights to such a proceeding.

Stay tuned.

I wonder if any of this info will be talked about by CNN

Seems to be. They sure know how to pick their heroes, don't they?

I get the nagging feeling that the mayors and police chiefs of major US cities fear watching their municipalities burn more than just a few glitches in due process. You always need a good patsy if you want to escape from a crime.

I wonder which officer(s) are going to be thrown under the bus to make it look all legit...

Southerngunner, do you have a link for that information? Not that I doubt it -- it sounds likely to me. I'd like to research it a little deeper, though.

There were a couple of mentions of him having surgery shortly before his arrest, but they were quickly squelched by the racist news media. I'm wondering why Fox News isn't all over this ...

The driver of the paddy wagon is toast, IMO.

Because "wild negro shootings" are no longer timely or even interesting. I know when I hear the evening teaser I always respond to my wife there's been another "I can't breathe" shooting.

This specific example, at least to my little circle, is pretty much a done deal. It's another case of a black run government and black prosecutors seeking headlines for a black death. The only interesting thing for me to watch is that the guy charged with the worst crime is black, also. Will they eat their own young? Stay tuned.

I think it was Kanye West who stated, "Black is the new black." I'll fix that for him, "Black is the new boring." When my wife--a liberal school teacher--packs 24/7, then you know the system is falling apart.

Yes, I'd like the link(s) as I have heard most of this previously. It looked to me like Freddie was having a hard time standing/walking when they raised him and took him to the wagon. If documented, I hope they bring up the previous surgery and the orders to stay home for a week and a half to heal. That should be the basis for the cops lawyers along with the illegal(felony) activity he was pursuing.

If this case proceeds to trial, EVERYTHING will come out. Prosecutors will try to keep his juvenile records sealed, but the defense might get them unsealed. It will depend on the judge. His medical history will almost certainly be revealed, including his physician's instructions to him. The surgeons will be called to testify. Cops who had previous dealings with him can be called to testify. The Medical Examiner will testify. Everything will become known about the knife he was carrying.

If that rap sheet that was posted is accurate, he was a drug dealer -- pure and simple. He was probably selling Crack Cocaine to neighborhood kids. The world is a better place ...

Richard, No Sir I don't have a direct link for the info I reluctantly checked snopes because of their biased reporting and I found these replies It appears parts of the story is correct but there is no proof so far about pre existing injuries to his spine . I apologize for not verifying before I made the post.
