EDITORIAL: Indictments in the Freddie Gray case forever change the relationship between Baltimore police and citizens.
baltimoresun.comState's Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby delivered a stinging indictment of the six officers involved in the events leading to Freddie Gray 's death, revealing new allegations about his arrest and ride in the back of a police van that depict utterly inhumane treatment of the young man. Based on her account, the officers had no probable cause to chase him, handcuff him, search him or restrain him. They placed him in a dangerous position, unsecured and face down on the floor of the van with his hands and feet bound, and they displayed utter indifference to his calls for help and no sense of urgency to determine whether or how badly he had been injured, much less to render assistance. We would be shocked if an officer treated an animal that way these six are accused of treating Freddie Gray.
