Jurors deliberated more than 16 hours over three days but still could not reach a verdict in the trial of the first officer to face prosecution in Freddie Gray’s death, forcing an already-weary Baltimore to continue waiting for any resolution in a case that has strained this city for months.

On Wednesday afternoon, Judge Barry G. Williams declared a mistrial.

Well, I can't say I am surprised about this. Both sides will probably be at each other again very shortly.

Obvious government failure.

???? I thought the case was a "lock" ????

Where's that State's Attorney.

Can't wait for the official excuses for failure.

Hopefully things stay peaceful. I doubt it will, but one can hope!

Like I said in the other thread, for the sake of Christmas, "pants up, don't loot"

But it was a 'slam dunk'!!!!

Mistrial!

I don't know if that says our justice system really does work.

Or people just want to keep doing it until they get the preferred outcome.

I feel sorry for everyone involved.

Going through ALL that again.

Yes because shooting large groups of people in a civil society is how we always handle our problems. Not to say looting is ok or rioting but nor is mass shooting :/

Meh

How is this going to effect the other 5 officers? I was watching some of the news channels last night. Some lawyers were stating how they felt how the DA may have went a little far with the charges.
Watching now and seeing the crowds are getting a little bigger.

How is this a failure? From what I have read, and seen on various videos, they usually never seatbelt people in those vehicles. Whatever happened with that other suspect in the van with him who was not hurt, claiming that gray was smashing himself around the inside of the van? In your opinion, where was there a failure?

It's a failure by the prosecution to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. So now they'll have to re-try and present their entire case all over again in the hopes that maybe this time they can convince 12 people the defendant is culpable for what they say he is.

It seems regular protesting so far.

Hopefully the protesters will keep it relatively peaceful as requested by the Gray family lawyer.

Slightly off topic, but I could not help but notice a strange bit of synchronicity with two posters starting the same thread at almost the same time, both having variations of Excalibur as their user names.

This was outcome was a foregone conclusion.

Show trial is a show trial the "see we tried" song/dance that TPTB always put on.

King George did it centuries ago when his occupying army was killing people. We have a new occupying army--they're call the police, but the same things are happening.

In case anyone has forgotten:

"For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:"

More things change, the more they stay the same.

I would agree that it was a show trial, but disagree on the reasons.

It was a show put on by a city prosecutor wanting to make a name for herself. Not one who was giving lip service to prosecuting police. I think she'd happily see all of them crucified so long as she got credit for it.
