Thank you Marilyn Mosby!!!!

Charges Filed Against Officers Involved In Freddie Gray Death

All six officers previously suspended for the spinal chord injury death of Freddie Gray are now facing criminal charges.

Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby says the State Medical Examiner has ruled Gray’s death a murder.

The Washington Post reports:

State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby said Friday she has probable cause to file criminal charges in the much publicized death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray who died while in police custody.

Six officers, including a lieutenant and a sergeant, have been suspended after the incident.

On Thursday, Baltimore’s police officials said they turned over their initial report to prosecutors — a day earlier than expected.

At a morning news conference, Mosby said the medical examiner had ruled Gray’s death a homicide.

The Gray case is an ongoing investigation and a challenging one. It puts Mosby in the spotlight. She is 35 years old, making her one of the youngest people to hold such a high level position and has been on the job for less than four months.

She is also the wife of Baltimore City Council member Nick Mosby.

Mosby said Gray requested an inhaler during the van ride and that he began to flail and was held “against his will.” She said officers failed to establish probable cause for his arrest in the first place.

Officers “illegally arrested Mr. Gray,” she said. Police say his legs were shackled and he wasn’t wearing a seat belt, which authorities say was a violation of policy.

She also expressed her sympathies to the Gray family and said she had meet with them, assuring them would seek justice in the case.

This is amazing news. Although only one officer is facing murder charges, the fact that all SIX of them got charged is remarkable.
