Mosby announced a series of charges now facing the six police officers involved in putting Gray in custody and transporting him in the police wagon on the morning of April 12. The charges vary for each individual, but include...

I swear to god the ways in which money corrupts everything within our society angers me to no end. For those who don't know what a "Pay to Stay" jail cell is, they are "upgraded" cells for those who need to serve jail time but are willing to pay for their dignity. " For roughly $75 to $127 a day, these convicts — who are known in the self-pay parlance as “clients” — get a small cell behind a regular door, distance of some amplitude from violent offenders and, in some cases, the right to bring an iPod or computer on which to compose a novel, or perhaps a song.

The news just came in. The skulls are elongated, and more than a little strange. 300 were found and they date to 3000 years...

First of all, I'm skeptical about these claims myself when others make them, as it can't be proven to be anything significant. But thought I'd share it here anyway...

Greetings ATS, I have seen overwhelmingly not only here on ATS but on other formats as well the opinion that Freddie Gray was just a thug, career criminal and that his actions brought about his death. I can say without doubt that I sympathize with those sentiments because Freddie Gray was not a person I would associate with under any circumstances,...
