BALTIMORE: Police Investigation Doesn’t Support Charges Against Officers

Baltimore – 

An investigation by the Baltimore Police Department into the death of Freddie Gray paints a much different picture than that proposes by State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby.

The findings from a police investigation into the death of Freddie Gray do not support a multitude of charges filed against Officers, including many of the most serious charges.

Taking swift action, defense attorneys have already filed motions in court regarding difference between the state attorney and police investigations.

Many of the charges brought against the officers seemingly revolve around the idea that the officers were not justified in arresting Gray. A key finding in Mosby’s case, that a knife found on Gray was legal, has already been challenged by lawyers representing two officers. The police investigation found the knife to be illegal under Baltimore city code.

The seemingly over-zealous charge of Second Degree Murder was also challenged by the police investigation. Officials familiar with the investigation offered that the evidence could hardly justify murder charges, for which prosecutors must prove the officer had an obvious intent to kill.

Homicide investigators who had been briefed by the medical examiner’s office believed that the autopsy report will find the cause of death to fall short of homicide.

Mosby’s narrative offered that the medical examiner concluded Gray’s death had been a homicide, resulting from a fatal injury suffered while Gray was being transported to the police precinct.

An important question remains, what fueled Mosby’s decision to file such over zealous charges in the first place? Money? Power? An attempt to get on the political fast track?

    All I can say from what the media is showing and from what each of the three sides in this crap is saying(Most taken with a grain of salt) is that there will be hell in the US if the Federal government tries to take over policing the cities that have control as for those cities that are having riots. I think they should be policed by the military under marshal law. If the Government tries to take control of cities that are not having riots then it would mean civil war again. This is because that will show that the government has been seized by individuals that is communistic and not for the free people.
