The truth about Freddie or as known on the street “Pepper”
>A different, largely unreported view of this Baltimore mess . . .
> Here are the facts on the late Freddie Gray of Baltimore:
> Freddie Gray had a pre-existing spinal and neck injury and had severe
> nerve damage and scar tissue from an accident that Allstate Insurance
> was paying him for, in a structured settlement. This monthly payment
> and drug money were his means of support. Freddie had had several
> unsuccessful spinal fusion surgeries over the past 4 1/2 years. His
> most recent spinal/cervical operation was a week and a half before he
> was arrested on April 12. He was on doctor's orders to remain home and
> in bed to speed recovery from that major operation. Instead, Freddie
> was out manufacturing and distributing drugs on the streets of
> Baltimore, and strenuously resisting arrest.
> Freddie had a long criminal history (rap sheet): many pages long for
> manufacturing and distributing drugs and controlled substances,
> including heroin, cocaine, crack cocaine and marijuana. He had been
> convicted of numerous other felonies including assault, firearms
> violations, breaking and entering, armed robbery, receiving stolen
> property, and the list goes on and on from his 18th birthday. In
> Baltimore County, juvenile records are forever sealed except by
> judicial order. (www.mdjudiciarycaseresearch
) Freddie, known on the
> streets as "Pepper", was 25 years old, 5'8" and weighed 145 lbs. when
> last arrested. He had been incarcerated at least 12 times, the longest
> stretch being 2 years in prison in Maryland.
> Freddie had recently tried to convert his structured settlement from
> Allstate into a lump sum payment from Peachtree Funding, of Atlanta.
> Friends say he was confused by the paperwork and legal terminology.
> Following his arrest, Freddie was placed into the paddy wagon by the
> police officers who had arrested him ---- black officers, all of them.
> He could have easily slipped on the floor or bench, or twisted his
> neck or shoulders to reopen his recently fused and weakened spine.
> Enroute to the County jail, the paddy wagon stopped once so that
> officers could put leg restraints on Freddie to calm him down and
> restrict his movement.
> Freddie was a dangerous career felon, well-known to the BPD officers,
> with a damaged and healing spine and neck, and was supposed to be home
> healing a week and a half after surgery. He should not have been
> running around on the streets of Baltimore committing drug felonies
> and resisting arrest.
> Now, why are so many residents of Baltimore destroying their own city

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