BREAKING: Baltimore Prosecutor Charges Police in the Death of Freddie Gray

Just this hour, the states attorney’s office in Baltimore announced that the six police officers involved in Freddie Gray’s arrest on April 12 will be charged in his death.

The states attorney, Marilyn J. Mosby, said that she “heard the call for no justice no peace” from the rioters and is bringing criminal charges against the cops.

According to the states attorney the cops had no probable cause to arrest Mr. Gray in the first place and performed “an illegal arrest.”

She also charged that the police failed to follow Baltimore police regulations by securing the prisoner by a seatbelt in the transport van.

Mosby further charged that even though Gray had told police he needed medical attention during the trip to the station, the police took the van to another arrest situation instead of immediately taking Gray to a hospital.

In a news conference, the state’s attorney, Marilyn J. Mosby, described repeated mistreatment of Mr. Gray. She said that time and again police mistreated Mr. Gray, arresting him with no grounds, violating police procedure by putting him in cuffs and leg cuffs in the van without seat belting him and then repeatedly failing to get him medical attention. She said that when he was removed from the wagon, “Mr. Gray was no longer breathing at all.”

The death, Ms. Mosby said, is believed to be the result of a fatal injury to Mr. Gray while he was riding in the van without a seat belt. As she announced the charges, there was cheering from people in the crowd.

All six officers were charged, one with second-degree murder.

“We have probable cause to file criminal charges,” Ms. Mosby said. As Ms. Mosby spoke outside the War Memorial here, dozens of police officers dressed in riot gear stood nearby.
