Freddie Gray died in police custody April 19 2015 after being arrested in a drug sweep. When the news broke mass rioting ensued. The Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake told the police to stand down. Significant damage was sustained by the city as a result.
Now, a year later, what we've already known is being etched in stone. The riots were unjustified, it was all for nothing. The police officers did nothing malicious to Freddie Gray to contribute to his death. #blacklivesmatter and other groups were looking to politicize this incident, there was nothing to politicize. It was a tragedy that could have been avoided had Freddie Gray not resorted to a life of crime. Responsibility for your actions is the solution here, not discriminating against our police forces.[mks_button size=”medium” title=”H/T Joe for America” style=”squared” url=”http://joeforamerica.com/2016/07/breaking-4th-freddie-gray-cop-not-guilty-prosecution-zero-4-video/” target=”_blank” bg_color=”#151835″ txt_color=”#FFFFFF” icon=”icon-calculator” icon_type=”sl”]
