BREAKING: Baltimore Drops All Remaining Charges Against Police Officers in Freddie Gray Case
July 27, 2016Human Rights
Freddie Gray died in April 2015 of spinal injuries after he was arrested and transported in a police van. Gray’s family and attorney say his voice box was crushed and his spine was "80 percent severed at his neck." Three police officers have already been acquitted off all charges related to his arrest and death.
A judge declared a mistrial in a fourth trial, after jurors were unable to reach a verdict on any of the charges. But that doesn’t mean no one has faced legal repercussions following Freddie Gray’s death. Baltimore activist Kwame Rose was recently convicted for failing to obey an order from law enforcement while protesting the December mistrial of Officer William Porter.
