Freddie Grey..more questions, few answers

So forgive me kind readers…I’m still searching for answers to this case & these events.

Let me review what I have learned so far. The police arrested for Freddie Grey for reasons they haven’t disclosed. Freddie ran from police prior to that. In some peoples minds this shows guilt or suspicion. However, the reality is, it can also show fear. Eith so little information to go on, it would be impossible to draw an informed conclusion. If Baltimore PD is known for being corrupt (*not saying they are*) and Freddie was being pursued for no valid reason (*not saying this is the case*) it’d be reasonable to think he would run. I’m not saying this is the case or that that’s a good idea, but it would be understandable & explain why if he was not being arrested for any wrongdoing. Unfortunately Baltimore PD is not forthcoming with details. In any case where there is an ongoing investigation its procedure not to give away sensitive information but to not give any information when someone has died, when there’s rioting (which clearly shows a population that is angry & distrustful of police, in my opinion) Unfortunately the lack of real information feeds the distrust and discord and fuels speculation. I’m disheartened I cannot find information on this case, There’s rioting, looting, endless news coverage…and few facts. I implore Baltimore PD to be forthcoming & transparent as quickly as they can. Godspeed Baltimore.

Freddie Gray

I admit, I have failed on keeping up with the news. I don’t get the newspaper and don’t have cable (I find the internet suffices pretty well so long as I find good sources for it). I don’t know much about Freddie Gray but the internet exploded this week with his name. What I have read horrifies me. HORRIFIES me. I’m still trying to gather facts for a complete picture but I have many questions. The police are public servants who do a lot of good & keep communities safe./ I appreciate their presence. That said, not all cops are good cops and even good cops make mistakes. I Want to know what happened to #FreddieGray. I want to know what he was arrested for, why he was needing to be physically restrained, what happened that he got a SPINAL injury. He seemed fine upon entering the police vehicle per witnesses but was unresponsive upon arrival at the police station. WHAT HAPPENED TO FREDDIE GRAY? It would seem if he was in the vehivkle and handcuffed NOTHING should have happened to him. Its possible nothing did but maybe something stress related (a seizure, concussion, who knows). I dont have answers. But I want them. I appeal to Baltimore PD to be open and transparent. If they are in the right, then let the people know. They deserve it.
