ANOTHER ACQUITTAL IN BALTIMORE’S FREDDIE GRAY CASE: From the Washington Examiner’s summary:

“Baltimore Police Lt. Brian Rice was acquitted of all his charges stemming from the April 2015 arrest and death of Freddie Gray. On Monday, Circuit Judge Barry Williams acquitted Rice of all three charges he faced: involuntary manslaughter, misconduct in office and reckless endangerment.”

Here’s the Baltimore Sun’s in-depth report.

Four trials, one hung jury, three acquittals. Why were felony charges levied against the police? I think when violence erupted after Gray’s arrest and death, leaders in “…Baltimore were confused, lacked decisiveness and feared their own people. They also feared the accusation of racism and fascism from radical activists.”
