Baltimore Officers Will Face No Federal Charges in Death of Freddie Gray
By REBECCA R. RUIZ SEPT. 12, 2017

WASHINGTON — Six Baltimore police officers will face no federal charges in the death of Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old black man who died of a severe spinal cord injury while in custody, the Justice Department announced on Tuesday. …

Six officers were charged by the Baltimore state’s attorney with crimes related to Mr. Gray’s death, including manslaughter and murder. All were cleared in those cases as well.

How many incremental people have been murdered in Baltimore due to the Obama Administration / BLM / Soros etc. promotion of this case in March 2015?

Baltimore

Compared to the mean in 2007-2014, it looks like Baltimore is now up around 300 incremental dead bodies since the Freddie Gray Fiasco began about 30 months ago.

Heckuva job, Obama.

    Mediocre is not the word. A closer approximation would be evil.
  2. OT: So I did a text search on the e-book of “What Happened” by Hillary Clinton. In summary, I think it’s revealing that the strings “islam”, “refugee”, “illegal immigra”, and “jihad” get a total of 0 results. On the other hand “wikileaks” gets 35 results, and “Russia” gets 267 results. It’s almost as if “what happened” was Donald Trump actually addressed the concerns of the American electorate. For instance, which do you think voters are more concerned about: Russia or Islam.

    There are also some pretty entertaining quotes:

    Gallup compiled a word cloud depicting everything Americans read, saw, or heard about me during several months of the campaign. It was dominated by a single giant word: email. Much smaller, but also visible were the words lie and scandal. Interestingly, in Trump’s word cloud, immigration and Mexico stand out much more than jobs or trade. More on that shortly. [pg. 761 of e-book]

    In June 2017, the Voter Study Group, a consortium of academic researchers, published a major new survey that tracked the same eight thousand voters from 2012 to 2016. “What stands out most,” concluded George Washington University professor John Sides, are “attitudes about immigration, feelings toward black people, and feelings toward Muslims.” Data from the gold standard American National Election Studies also showed that resentment toward these groups was a better predictor of Trump support than economic concerns. And as I previously mentioned, exit polls found that Trump’s victory depended on voters whose top concerns were immigration and terrorism, despite his lack of any national security experience and my long record. That’s a polite way of saying many of these voters were worried about people of color—especially blacks, Mexicans, and Muslims—threatening their way of life. They believed that the political, economic, and cultural elites cared more about these “others” than about them. …

    When I said, “You could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” I was talking about well-documented reality. For example, the General Social Survey conducted by the University of Chicago found that in 2016, 55 percent of white Republicans believed that blacks are generally poorer than whites “because most just don’t have the motivation or willpower to pull themselves up out of poverty.” In the same survey, 42 percent of white Republicans described blacks as lazier than whites and 26 percent said they were less intelligent. In all cases, the number of white Democrats who said the same thing was much lower (although still way too high). [pg. 789 of e-book]

    Wow. Just Wow.

  3. Maybe, but getting a “severe spinal cord injury” while in custody should frankly be impossible unless the deceased had a previous condition. The court couldn’t prove guilt, but this sounds like there was some determined “slapping around” going on:

    Mr. Gray was arrested in April 2015 and charged with illegal possession of a switchblade after running from officers. Following his arrest, he rode in a police van — shackled but unsecured by a seatbelt, as required by police department regulations — and was found unresponsive. He died the following week.

    This is something that happens in North Korea.

    It’s not over either:

    The six officers involved in Mr. Gray’s death still work for the Baltimore Police Department, Nicole Monroe, a spokeswoman, said on Tuesday. Five of them face internal administrative investigations while one, William G. Porter, has been cleared.

    , @Art Deco
    There is commercial security cam video footage of just about every leg of Freddie Gray's trip to the police station. Ofc. Goodson's driving was normal and the other passenger emerged uninjured. There was no 'rough ride'. Gray's arrest and placement in the paddy wagon was also recorded. He was obstreperous with the arresting officers and had to be repositioned in the van more than once during stops on on the trip. Ofc. Goodson eventually laid him on the floor of the van, cuffed his ankles, and told him to stay put. Anyone's single best guess is that he attempted to stand up and toppled over backward into a protrusion, perhaps the door latch.

    What I Did After Police Killed My Son - POLITICO Magazine
    http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2014/08/what-i-did-after-police-killed-my-son-110038

    After police in Kenosha, Wis., shot my 21-year-old son to death outside his house ten years ago — and then immediately cleared themselves of all wrongdoing — an African-American man approached me and said: “If they can shoot a white boy like a dog, imagine what we’ve been going through.”

    I could imagine it all too easily, just as the rest of the country has been seeing it all too clearly in the terrible images coming from Ferguson, Mo., in the aftermath of the killing of Michael Brown. On Friday, after a week of angry protests, the police in Ferguson finally identified the officer implicated in Brown's shooting, although the circumstances still remain unclear.

    I have known the name of the policeman who killed my son, Michael, for ten years. And he is still working on the force in Kenosha.

    Yes, there is good reason to think that many of these unjustifiable homicides by police across the country are racially motivated. But there is a lot more than that going on here. Our country is simply not paying enough attention to the terrible lack of accountability of police departments and the way it affects all of us—regardless of race or ethnicity. Because if a blond-haired, blue-eyed boy — that was my son, Michael — can be shot in the head under a street light with his hands cuffed behind his back, in front of five eyewitnesses (including his mother and sister), and his father was a retired Air Force lieutenant colonel who flew in three wars for his country — that’s me — and I still couldn’t get anything done about it, then Joe the plumber and Javier the roofer aren’t going to be able to do anything about it either......

    The three officers you made the arrest had absolutely nothing to do with what happened in the police van. They were charged solely because they were white.

    Here is a story about a man running over some protesters yesterday with an SUV, as protesters took it upon themselves to block traffic in the middle of a riot, and were encountered by a motorist intent on using the street for its stated purpose:

    http://www.rawstory.com/2017/09/watch-st-louis-driver-runs-over-anti-police-brutality-protesters-with-suv/amp/

    Strangely enough, this is not being treated as one of the defining terror attacks of our time, or even really being discussed much at all.

    I can't help but wonder if the media isn't avoiding these types of stories, because they might make people sympathetic to motorists who find themselves in such a situation. Running over people who are blocking traffic suddenly became the worst thing ever a month or so ago, and they don't want to lose that narrative just yet.

    I feel like they should discuss it, though, as a public service to their readership, much of which is apparently unaware that playing in traffic is a really bad idea.

  11. I am not surprised. When half the defendants were African Americans & the other were not, I knew that the entire situation was sketchy. Also, Gray had had a history of behavior. He was also, aware that he could use the system. The fact that the black officers never buckled him down in the back of the van lost the case. All the cops and EMTS of Baltimore seemed to know FG.

    Also, Gray had had spinal surgery….before this arrest.

  12. For the radical left, the extra dead black bodies are acceptable losses in the war to mobilize large groups of thugs/protesters on demand to try to take control of the politics of the Democratic party, and hopefully the country eventually.

    The six officers involved in Mr. Gray’s death still work for the Baltimore Police Department, Nicole Monroe, a spokeswoman, said on Tuesday. Five of them face internal administrative investigations while one, William G. Porter, has been cleared.
     

    Unless, of course, the injury was self-inflicted in an attempt to win the ghetto lottery.

    Nice. $2.5 million for 500 bicycles.

  31. Police should be removed from all ghettos. Let nature take its course.

    They should also be reduced substantially in all other communities. They mainly serve as tax collectors for the state. Furthermore, most cops are dumb and lazy and a lot of them are corrupt.

    We are grossly over-policed in this once great nation.

    I did not come to my conclusions lightly. I used to be pretty pro-police. After working as a criminal defense attorney for a number of years, I have seen reality up close and personal and it is quite sobering.

    ex-President Barry is the definition of mediocrity as race hustler

    Mediocre is not the word. A closer approximation would be evil.

    What happened to the officers involved with the "I can't breathe" guy case?

    Forget it, Jake, it’s Newyorktown.

    Maybe, but getting a "severe spinal cord injury" while in custody should frankly be impossible unless the deceased had a previous condition. The court couldn't prove guilt, but this sounds like there was some determined "slapping around" going on:

    Mr. Gray was arrested in April 2015 and charged with illegal possession of a switchblade after running from officers. Following his arrest, he rode in a police van — shackled but unsecured by a seatbelt, as required by police department regulations — and was found unresponsive. He died the following week.

    Steve's friends over at the 2Kevins, Grace and Steel did an interview a while back with a longtime Baltimore resident, MMA fighter/Trainer, writer and blogger, Jame LaFond Lafond says that he is certain that State's Attorney Marian Mosby herself was a one time gang member herself. He makes a pretty strong case.

    Thanks for that link – really interesting! Very wide ranging, but this was awesome. I’ll buy a book or two and maybe more. Thank you!

    OT

    Not bored identity's President (wink,wink!) has a question for Jose Luis Martin, aka Chito , who is the Chair of the Human Rights Commission of the Philippines :

    https://twitter.com/thedailybeast/status/909089718146609152


    bored identity believes that Chito totally represents interests of ordinary Philipinos; not only because he supports something called MILF, but his interview with Esquire is more than six pages long .

    Reprllent Duarte should have rephrased his question to more subtle:

    "Hey Chito, you're well-traveled lad...what's your favorite pizza joint?"

    Beautiful!
