In what seems to have been a lightning fast process, Marilyn Mosby the state’s attorney in Baltimore, has announced that the death of Freddie Gray has been ruled a homicide. As a result, the cops involved in his arrest and death now face serious charges.

“To the people of Baltimore and the demonstrators across America, I heard your call for ‘no justice, no peace,’ your peace is sincerely needed as I work to deliver justice on behalf of this young man,” Mosby said.


Mosby announced the charges filed against six officers, including the driver of the police van used to transport Gray to the police station.  The officers and charges are as follows:

– Officer Caeser B. Goodson Jr. was charged with second-degree depraved heart murder, involuntary manslaughter, second-degree assault, two counts of manslaughter by vehicle and misconduct in office.


–Officer William G. Porter was charged with involuntary manslaughter, second-degree assault and misconduct in office.

– Lt. Brian W. Rice was charged with involuntary manslaughter, two counts of second-degree assault, two counts of misconduct in office and false imprisonment.

– Officer Edward M. Nero was charged with two counts of second-degree assault, two counts of misconduct in office and false imprisonment.

– Officer Garret Miller was charged with two counts of second-degree assault, two counts of misconduct in office and false imprisonment.

– Sgt. Alicia White was charged with involuntary manslaughter, second-degree assault and misconduct in office.

Warrants for the officers’ arrests have been issued. For once the public will finally get to see cops take the “perp walk.”
