They also wouldn't be considering dropping them if that evidence was not complete and now that it is, it does not show evidence of wrongdoing….
The only job of "investigation" is collecting evidence for trial, they don't decide anything. The evidence is then passed to the prosecutors office and guess what, they filed charges.
If that is publicly announced and now being considered for reversal, its because of pressure within the system to drop the matter. That is the best indicator from where I am sitting that there was "wrongdoing", i.e., Homicide.

Actually defense attorneys can file motions before hand for dismissal of evidence or charges.
Okay one: Calling human beings "animals" is never a proper way to address things. Call them criminals, thugs, miscreants, but not animals.

Hopefully they are dropped.
The rioting animals wanted justice.
Justice in this case would be to drop the biased charges against these six policemen and women who were just trying to do a difficult job.
Freddy Gray caused his own death by the choices he made in life.

One: Call them what you wish, but if you want your argument to be taken seriously, opening your remarks by calling people animals immediately makes me want to dismiss your claims as bigotry.
Two: I have said in this thread, and in others, that the murder/manslaughter charges will be difficult to prove. However, charges of misconduct could stick, and I expect they will in the case of at least a few of the officers, probably not all of them. Look at the case through an objective lens.
Three: So because Grey had a criminal history, it absolves the police of any wrongdoing if a suspect is killed in their custody? What a twisted world view. I guess silly things like "rights" and "due process" only apply to those you want it to apply to.
