I am not anti-police. Not at all. But there is a line and police officers must be disciplined enough not to cross that line with suspects and criminals.
A newly released video of the Freddie Gray arrest seems to cast doubt on the idea that Gray hurt himself in the back of the police van. The video shows Gray lying limp and screaming, apparently unable to move while officers throw him into the back of the van.
Freddie Gray had to undergo a double surgery on three broken vertebrae and an injured voice box on Tuesday, after he was released by the police. He died today after days of remaining in a coma.
The 27-year old was arrested last week for an undisclosed violation. The police said that he was restrained on the ground by an officer during the arrest, but appeared to be fine when he was taken to the district station. However, a cell phone video shows that the arresting officers used force that some may seen as “brutal.”
