Officers Charged In Death Of Freddie Grey

6 Baltimore officers have been charged in the death of Freddie Grey!

The officers invloved & their charges range from Officer Caeser Goodson charged with 2nd degree depraved-heart murder, Officer William Porter, Lt. Brian Rice & Sgt. Alicia White were all charged with murder to involuntary manslaughter, officers Garrett Miller & Edward Nero were both charged with misconduct in office, false imprisonment and assault.

“To the people of Baltimore and the demonstrators across America: I heard your call for no justice, no peace. Your peace is sincerely needed as I work to deliver justice on behalf of this young man,” State Attorney Marilyn Mosby said Friday.

The coroner ruled Freddie Gery’s death a homicide.  He died April 19 of a severe and critical neck injury he suffered from being handcuffed, shackled by his feet and unsecured inside a police van during his arrest a week earlier.

Gray was “illegally arrested,” Mosby said. She said police had failed to establish probable cause for his arrest, and the knife he had when arrested was legal and was not a switchblade.
