His autopsy revealed a single trauma to his neck.”

Yeah well, you’re a little behind the curve. Their own prosecutor (the attorneys usually on the cops’ side) found enough evidence to arraign the officers on criminal misconduct and murder charges. Your cry-baby apologetics for these pigs is revealing.

Demcrates everywhere, with no hope of change in the voting habits of the residents. Consequenly, ignorance will prevail. So sad.

“whoa…whoa.whooaaaaaa….holy cow that’s worse than here.”

that’s the Baltimore the rest of the USA knows.

The idea that if one flees from, fights, assaults and injures or kills the police officer trying to conduct a lawful arrest THEN you win is what has led you to this point. The idea that arresting some one for a crime and then not letting them to just walk away is racist has led you to this point. Not these old war stories related to you by some journalist who IGNORES the real reason for your problems, but an acceptance of crime and predatory activity by members of your community led to this. If I was living in any community I would want my police NO MATTER their color to arrest the drug dealing scum and gang thugs that prevent my children from being able to live a relatively normal life, to be able to play in front of their house NO MATTER WHAT COLOR the police were. The laws are simple to obey and understand no matter what color one is, no math, chemistry or calculus to answer before you decide if you WANT to break the law or not. Society has to decide who to align them self with criminals who prey on them, their children and their neighbors because of their skin color or the police who are not attacking doctors, lawyers, engineers or any person obeying the law but are fighting many times for their lives to lawfully arrest CRIMINALS who are preying on the same ignorant clowns protesting the police and looting your neighborhoods. Its the difference between living in a civilized society and living in an anarchy ridden jungle where only those willing to commit the worst acts of humanity survive against the rest of us who want to live a good responsible and civilized life.

Only whites are required to be “culturally sensitive”.

Bad players on both sides.

Few of us have been born and raised in such conditions and therefore cannot truly understand how such circumstances effect a person’s outlook and behavior. Yet comments here and elsewhere reveal an ugly racism, focused on denigrating Black people in general and the City of Baltimore in particular. These commentators, safe in anonymity, represent the worst part of American society.

Thankfully they’re not in the majority. And today’s a good day, that flag representing slavery and treason is coming down in SC.

However, for me, the article is empty. Baltimore’s troubles did not start with Mr. Grey’s arrest and death. Does anyone remember there was another person in the paddy wagon during this rough ride? Did he get injured? I also heard there was GPS data on the paddy wagon. Don’t you think GPS data may give you an idea of how rough a ride Mr. Grey endured? The author has created a narrative of police guilt before most facts are know and reported. You would think this journalist would know these basic facts. This journalist seems to think that the crime and violence in Baltimore is all in response to Police actions with Mr. Grey. I would wager a bet and say that the spike in violence is a direct result of the police not trying to stop crime and simple responding to the report of a crime. IN other words, the Mayor and Commissioner told the Police to back off. They have and the criminals now run the street. Go figure.
