Charges Dropped Against All Baltimore Officers in Freddie Gray Case

Disgraced State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby has utterly failed in her malicious prosecution of the six Baltimore Officers who were charged in connection with the death of Freddie Gray. All charges are now being dismissed against all of the officers who had been charged, because it’s clear that the prosecution has no evidence that any of the officers committed a criminal act.

Three officers had already been acquitted in bench trials overseen by Judge Barry Williams; one officer’s case resulted in a hung jury and was scheduled to be retried.

Marilyn Mosby should never have charged these heroes. Oddly enough, one of the claims that Mosby had tried to push was that officers didn’t have probable cause to arrest Gray; Mosby then had the officers arrested without probable cause that they had committed any crime.

Nationally renowned forensic criminologist, and Blue Lives Matter consultant, Ron Martinelli, Ph.D.’s explains the Freddie Gray case in his book “The Truth Behind the Black Lives Matter Movement and the War on Police“:

On April 12, 2015, officers working in a high-crime, drug sales area of Baltimore observed Freddie Gray, 25, involved in the possible hand-to-hand sales of drugs. As police approached, Gray fled on foot and was pursued by the officers who captured him. When the officers searched Gray, they found him in possession of a spring-assisted knife, which they believed to be illegal. Gray was arrested, handcuffed, and placed into the rear of a transportation van but was not secured in a seat belt.

During transportation to the Western District police station, Gray became agitated and subsequently suffered a serious medical emergency. He was comatose and hospitalized for a serious spinal cord injury and later died on April 19th.

After only a 24-hour investigation by state investigators, six Baltimore officers involved in Freddie Gray’s arrest and transportation were charged with several crimes, including second-degree murder in connection with Gray’s death.

A leaked medical examiner’s report of Freddie Gray’s autopsy and toxicology reports showed that Gray suffered a devastating spinal cord injury after his head slammed into a wall in the back of the police van. The Medical Examiner who authored the report found no evidence that Gray’s spinal injury was caused by any use of police force during his arrest. The forensic medical evidence indicates that Gray broke his neck and that the wound to his head matched an extended metal bolt in the back of the van. The autopsy found no other evidence of trauma that would be consistent with force-related injuries on Gray’s body. No police were riding in the back of the van with Gray during his transportation.

Well-known forensic pathologist Dr. Cyril Wecht has opined that Gray’s manner of death was consistent with a “rough ride” in the police transportation van. However, my colleague, the eminent forensic pathologist Dr. Vincent DiMaio, who has worked scores of high-profile death cases, has suggested that Gray’s manner of death should actually be more accurately classified as “accidental or undetermined.” As a Certified Medical Investigator myself, I tend to agree with Dr. DiMaio’s opinion at this point.

Another prisoner in the van, identified as Donta Allen, initially told Baltimore investigators and a Washington Post reporter that Gray had been agitated, screaming, and banging around in the van during transportation. Allen told police and the media that he thought Gray was “intentionally trying to hurt himself.” He later recanted this statement. A search warrant application describes Gray during transportation as “irate” and that he “continued to be combative in the police wagon.”

Freddie Gray’s toxicology report showed that he was under the influence of significant levels of cannabinoids and opium at the time he was hospitalized. This finding would be forensically consistent with the possibility of Gray swallowing the drugs he was attempting to sell in order to destroy evidence. The presence of drugs in Gray’s system would also support his past criminal history as a drug dealer. In the past eight years, Gray had been arrested on no less than 14 occasions for felony possession of controlled substances and possession with intent to distribute. Again, Freddie Gray was only 25 at the time of his death.

The narrative presented by activists, including members of the BLM movement, is that the Baltimore officers involved in this incident murdered Freddie Gray. There are no forensic evidence or witness statements to date that support this assertion. The autopsy report detailing Gray’s traumatic injuries and drug influence—and prisoner Allen’s initial statements to police and the media—are far more favorable to the defendant officers than to the prosecution’s theory of criminality. Therefore, the BLM movement’s assertion that Baltimore police “murdered” Freddie Gray is unsubstantiated at this time. No officers have been convicted of any alleged criminal acts, and the trials for the six officers are still in progress after a mistrial in one case.

This isn’t the end of the Freddie Gray story though. The affected officers have filed lawsuits for their wrongful arrests, and Mosby is facing possible disbarment.

Marilyn Mosby charged these heroes in an attempt to appease Black Lives Matter rioters in Baltimore, and now that she failed, let’s hope that we don’t see a return to violence and destruction.

    I hope the cops sue the shit out of her and she loses her house.

    • Aaron Carter

      she thought that they were guilty which they are , our laws suck and that’s the only reason they got dismissed was because of politics. These cops are cowards killing people of sensless reasons then justifying it in the name of justice. Nah bruh !!!!

      • sy212

        you’re an idiot.

    • Asbestosfiber

      Because after all, they are the victims right? It’s not like their actions lead to someone’s death or anything

      • sy212

        Actually they were all acquitted. That means there wasn’t any evidence to prove wrongdoing. Am I going too fast for you? I can draw a picture if that helps.

        • Asbestosfiber

          No, you are wrong on all your points. What that means, is that the DA failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused had violated the laws in question.Not that there “was no evidence of wrong doing” If you are going and try to make someone look stupid you should have a passing knowledge of the subject. But seeing your profile pic, you would prefer a schoolyard atmosphere

          • sy212

            What did I just say? There wasn’t enough evidence. What an asshat. Now it’s time to sue the racist prosecutor and disbar her.

          • Asbestosfiber

            You said there wasn’t ANY evidence. To prove WRONGDOING. That was not proven. See a basic textbook about the legal system. Or read the constitution. Just to be clear
            None <some <reasonable doubt. Also see OJ Simpson case.

          • sy212

            Are they acquitted? Then there was no evidence, it was clear that this was a black person being biased against white officers. She is the face of the BLM. Lose your job, lose your house. You are a black racist.

          • Asbestosfiber

            Since you can’t or don’t want to understand the difference between none and some I give up

          • sy212

            Please do, you lose, they got acquitted. Now she gets sued and loses her license to practice law.

          • FourOne6Side

            ITS OK BRUV DAY AFTER DAY THE POLICE GET SMOKED SO KEEP THINKING UR SAFE IN SAFE SUBURBIA

  • Cool

    lol….Now “FIRE” this “RACIST” prosecutor!

    • Aaron Carter

      shut your racist ass up
      fire your dumb racist ass

  • Great_circle

    So a healthy person goes into police custody and comes out with a broken neck. If somone is taken into custody, you have a professional obligation to make sure that person is ok, can’t be hurt, or hurt someone else.

    • Richard Gray

      I do not understand why the officer(s) who put Mr. Gray into the van unsecured cannot be convicted on involuntary manslaughter. Maybe someone can explain that to me.

      • Amy Warren Arahill

        It said that there was not evidence, forensic or otherwise that would support criminal charges. The recanted statement of the other passenger should clue people in that the guy hurt himself.

        • Richard Steggall

          It should clue some people in the guy hurt himself but some people are clueless

          • Aaron Carter

            how the fuk does someone hurt themselves being handcuffed and kill themselves, you sound fukng retard ctfu with your heartless attitude. you are disgusting as a human being .

          • Richard Steggall

            you were dropped on your head to many times try pulling your head out of your azz and come up for air dumfuk

  • Shawn Kennedy

    The police unions need to make a list and ban any protection details for mosby and public figures who are anti cop.

  • Syreeda Portis

    The Police union needs to be honest about the boys in blue and their thug practices. There is no way this young man should have died in police custody. However, the community knows who you are and they will no longer keep your secrets.

  • Troy Parramore

    You people sound like a bunch of dolts. Get the richards out your mouth. Cops are supposed to serve and protect not just some but all. Let me guess when the man was shot in the back while handcuffed what do you people say about that? How about when the child was shot holding a bb gun in an open carry state? How about the black man being shot while on his back with his hands in the air? You people will rationalize your buts off to justify these actions and then want people to take a moment of silence in honor of those officers who die. They knew the job was dangerous when they took it And none were drafted. Hey all police are bad but if the good can not get rid of the bad then they all look like the racist bullies that also have a badge. So what do the people who have seen first hand what bad cops look like. They the good cops wear a uniform that looks just like the ones the bad ones wear. And remember it is recorded.

  • Kemberlie Mitanown

    I hope you all dont have kids that get arrested and die in a rough fucking ride. It is the responsibility of arresting officers and transporting officers to ensure the safety of those in their custody. If this story were true which i dont believe it is they are at least guilty of neglect. I would like to remind people anytime government of any type is allowed powers with no repercussions the darker communities are targeted first but the poor and ignorant is always second and im sure most of you and your children will fall in the latter 2 categories. Ill sit and watch.
