And they count on apathy due to racism to achieve it. Bad news for poor white folks though, they're next. Poverty is the new black.

At the beginning only three were charged with false imprisonment. I don't feel like going back and watching it again, but I know I heard in this press conference illegal arrest at least twice.


Maybe you heard that they removed the false imprisonment charges.


The revised charges add reckless endangerment counts to all of the officers' cases, and remove false imprisonment charges that Mosby had announced after Gray's death was ruled a homicide.

Were those charges (false imprisonment) removed because the knife proved to be illegal?

So is the grand jury part of this witch hunt that everyone is saying is going on?

We already have one comment that his is a biased decision...

Seems to me that regular citizens saw the evidence that we are not aware of and thought the same thing as the prosecutor.

Is this a ham sandwich indictment?

Or is there any real evidence?

It's just good that it's going to trial so that Americans can see that their police forces are NOT above the law. It also sends a message that police brutality will not be swept under the rug. Nothing but good can come from this.

Those charges were adjusted to illegal arrest. I'm tired of repeating myself didn't any of you people actually watch the press conference? It will take you guys 2 minutes and 30 seconds to end 90% of of the ridiculous missinformation on this thread.

I don't know, the article didn't say. But, from the research that I did on the "knife problem", Baltimore's knife laws seem to be really vague. They seems to be written so that just about any knife could be illegal, especially if concealed. But, Gray's knife was clipped to his pocket. I think it was just too questionable a charge to pursue.

Do you have anything to show that it doesn't have any evidence?

Would you be saying the same thing if they came back not charging the officers?

..................ridiculous missinformation on this thread.


I'm just quoting from the Huffington Post article.


The revised charges add reckless endangerment counts to all of the officers' cases, and remove false imprisonment charges that Mosby had announced after Gray's death was ruled a homicide. Below are the charges, followed by their maximum sentences:

Officer Caesar R. Goodson, Jr.
Second degree depraved heart murder (30 yrs.)
Manslaughter (involuntary) (10 yrs.)
Assault/second degree (10 yrs.)
Manslaughter by vehicle (gross negligence) (10 yrs.)
Manslaughter by vehicle (criminal negligence) (3 yrs.)
Misconduct in office
Reckless endangerment (5 yrs.)

Officer William G. Porter
Manslaughter (involuntary) (10 yrs.)
Assault/second degree (10 yrs.
Misconduct in office
Reckless endangerment (5 yrs.)

Lt. Brian W. Rice
Manslaughter (involuntary) (10 yrs.)
Assault/second degree (10 yrs.)
Misconduct in office
Misconduct in office
Reckless endangerment (5 yrs.)

Officer Edward M. Nero
Assault/second degree (10 yrs.)
Misconduct in office
Misconduct in office
Reckless endangerment (5 yrs.)

Officer Garrett E. Miller
Assault/second degree (10 yrs.)
Misconduct in office
Misconduct in office
Reckless endangerment (5 yrs.)

Sgt. Alicia D. White
Manslaughter (involuntary) (10 yrs.)
Assault/second degree (10 yrs.)
Misconduct in office
Reckless endangerment (5 yrs.)


And NBC News


When Mosby announced the charges on May 1, she said Gray had been wrongly arrested, because the knife found on him was not illegal. At least one of the officers has since argued that the knife was illegal.

The dropped false imprisonment charges could reflect new evidence in that regard.

I understand, that has been one of my main points from the beginning of the Freddy gray case. At the May 1st Press conference all the news organizations miss quoted and misrepresented what she said. Now in the May 21st Press conference all the news sites have done it again.


For some reason they want the entire country focusing on the knife when in reality they have no idea what her strategy is for the misconduct charges?


Sorry if I appeared to blow a gasket, it's just a little aggravating when you repeat something. And instead of people checking the information from the horses mouth they continually go to a horses ass. ( the MSM)

Don't be so sure on this. If these cops are found not guilty there are going to be a lot of upset people. We may even see riots worse than what has already happened.

Maybe the illegal arrest charges are coupled with the misconduct charges?

Well to be fair, those that made the first comment are usually not the ones making the second one.

Those making the second one usually have the attitude of "Don't break the law and you have nothing to worry about".

It sounds that way when she reads her statement at the press conference.

I posted it above it's 2 minutes and 30 seconds long. I would suggest everyone listen to her words then compare it to how badly the MSM has represented what she said.


I would also suggest that everyone goes back to the May 1 press conference. Every news organization left the most prominent fact of her statements out. She said and I paraphrase, after his arrest at the first stop he was re-cuffed shackled and put headfirst into the police van. She also states that in between that stop in the next unscheduled stop is when Freddy gray received his injuries.

It's nice to progress in this issue. Hopefully justice will be served, sending a message to all corrupt cops out there that this type of behavior won't be tolerated.

i bet they are sitting around thinking they have a chance of not being found guilty. but as cops they should realize that they will be found guilty and the Judge will have very little room during sentencing.

when exactly do people who fill out job applications to work for the Police decide the law no longer applies to them?

Illegal Arrest is the misconduct charge. It should be written in type like this... Misconduct of Office: Illegal Arrest.

Good...we actually have access to due process, now, and at the very least, his family deserves to know what happened.
