Baltimore police may have killed unarmed Black man after severing his spine

freddie gray

Another unarmed Black man may have died due to negligence by police. According to the BaltImore Sun, Freddie Gray, 25, was apprehended by Baltimore police officers in the early morning hours of April 12.

A cellphone video captured Gray screaming as he’s being dragged to a police van by three White police officers. Nearly 30 minutes after his arrest, Gray was rushed to a nearby hospital. When he arrived at the hospital, doctors discovered that his spine was 80 percent severed near his neck where three bones were broken. Gray soon went into a coma after arriving at the hospital. On April 19, Gray died from his injuries.

Several protests have taken place in Baltimore with the message of justice for Gray and his family. The city’s mayor, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, and the police commissioner held a joint press conference asking for calm in the streets of Baltimore. However, the police officers who arrested Gray have yet to be charged with a crime. They are currently on administrative leave while the case is being investigated.

    Stop the presses! Time to focus on this story! A BLACK MAN HAS BEEN KILLED!!!! Really, how long are White people going to allow the small minorities of America to get all the protection and focus? Every single time a White does something to a minority(especially black) it becomes major news. It wouldn’t be so bad if the media wasn’t openly silencing and ignoring black on White hate crimes which are starting to happen daily, literally every day a blacks kill or attack Whites in large groups, just like they are raping 35,000 White woman compared to White men raping ZERO black females a year, TEN at the most. Even if blacks were not targeting Whites it’s time for people to stand up and demand THE MAJORITY of this country receive representation! White people have problems to, considering we a legally and openly discriminated against in every area of life, bank loans, college admission, job applications, private schools ect ect White people are treated like second class citizens to the point we get fired, suspended and expelled for SAYING the wrong things, wake up people your ancestors have bled, sweat and died for hundreds of thousands of years to get the this stage in society, we are being erased, stand up and demand your rights back!

      Yes, but what you fail to understand is that blacks have been living with white privilege for hundreds of years. Oh an by the way your statistics on white men raping black women WRONG the difference is white men usually kill the black women after raping them. White people like you don’t like it at all when you are discriminated against….Live with it now you know what blacks and people of color has had to live with everyday of our lives. Don’t look or feel good when you as a white person has to deal with it. DOES IT. Well I say to you BUCK UP WHITE BOY. this has been happening to blacks for a long time. In the age of camera and social media it is brought out more now. IT IS ABOUT TIME.

      FOOL! These black people are being killed by sworn police officers. It’s not just a white killing a black. It’s police officers that the system does not allow one to defend himself from. The cops have the authority to kill and then lie to cover it up. So you can not compare a criminal who has not been sworn to uphold the law to a cop that has sworn to do so as well as get paid by the citizens.
      Let me stop at that. You’re just a troll!

    WELL ANOTHER SINCELESS MURDER? .. im glad baltimore isnt as ignorant as dallas tx, they are the only one who have piles of case of black men killed never resolved cause they claim investigators walked off the job … one issue is lack of state and goverment to do anything . these two cops will more than likely not be indicted , I FIGURED IT OUT . . THE GOVERMENT DONT WANT TO GET INVOLVED CAUSE THAT WOULD BE SCAREING A POTENTIAL white MILITARY PEOPLE FROM APPLYING, THEY ALREADY GOT EMOTIONAL ISSUES PTSD . from afghanistan not to many black men suffer this illness and i wonder why? . with that issue they COULD NOT HOLD UP UNDER THIS TYPE OF SCRUTINY . . so they will not apply for this job DONT FOR GET THIS IS STILL A JOB .. WITH APPLICATIONS AND TRAINING . . WHO WANTS TO GO THROUGH ALL THE HATE CRIME SHIT RIGHT NOW AGAINST POLICE .. . kkk skin heads shy away from prosecution possibilities ,

    THEY THINK .. if they just ignore us , and let these crimes go unpunished the potential candidates will say yipppy a job you can kill a N…GR and walk .. but thats not quite the case cell phones is gonna send a whole lot of them to prison . and lets see how powerful that badge is now .. not as powerful as the eyewitness on camera .. and i think they will try to band us from using cell phone cameras or ask apple , ibm to stop manufacturing the ones with video . bet?
    IT HORRIBLE .. AND UNBELIEVEABLE THE THOUGHT PROCESS THAT GOES INTO BAD COP COVER UP …
    that man would have killed mr scott and walked if that man had not had that camera and you see how easily he lied right?
    these two cops beat this boy and killed him while hand cuffed a young man that age didnt suffer a heart attack , they know black men are scared right now so they continue like blood hounds to murder . .
    when they start locking they asses up we will see , if they SERVE AND PROTECT INSTEAD OF CHOKING , SHOOTING , AND BEATING A BLACK UNARMED ASSAILANT .. .. . HALF OF THEM CANT FIGHT PHYSICAL TRAINING IS NOT TAUGHT THEM AS MUCH AS GUN USE AND MACE .. . .. cameras need to be on all uniformed police clothing period .. ……………. and someone needs to start doing time instead of RUNNING DOWN TO http://WWW.GOFUNDME.. to retired with a check k … WE NEXT WILL PROTEST http://www.gofundme.com
    the major source behind these crimes
