Freddie Gray was a heroin dealer.

Neighbors had faith in Freddie, many were looters.

Good one, but to be honest we have innocent civilians being killed out of unjustified fear OF the public by Police all the time now.
They are in "Fear for their lives" 24/7 it seems. No Knock Raids, Property Forfeiture scams, constant unlawful search.
According to the most recent FBI reports, from 2005 to 2012, a white police officer killed a Black person nearly twice a week. That’s about the same number of Black people lynched on a weekly basis during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Young Black males between the ages of 15 and 19 were killed by police officers at a rate of 21 times greater than their white counterparts.
Of the country’s 17,000 police departments, only 750 agencies report fatalities to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Uniform Crime Reporting Program — a measly 4 percent.
Black officers account for a little more than 10 percent of all fatal police shootings. Of those they kill, though, 78 percent were Black.
According to a report, 71 percent had no weapon at all at the time they were killed or police claimed the suspect had a gun but it couldn’t be proven.
Police officers, security guards or self-appointed vigilantes extrajudicially killed at least 313 African-Americans in 2012, according to a recent study. This means a Black person was killed by a security officer every 28 hours.
