She wanted to be a role model.

“As Baltimore police officers, we are not at odds with the community,” said Lt. Kenneth Butler, Vanguard Justice Society. “Let me repeat that: we are not at odds with the community.”

We’re also learning more about those charged. Sergeant Alicia White was recently promoted; her close friend said she wanted to be a role model. Officer Edward Nero, whose father said he was an EMT and proud of his job watching over some of Baltimore’s toughest streets.

“No officers injured Mr. Gray, caused harm to Mr. Gray and they are truly saddened by his death,” said FOP lawyer Mike Davey.

Now the case will head to a grand jury and likely a trial; it’s unclear whether that will be in Baltimore.

Gray’s family says they simply want justice.

    I hope they are all sentenced to jail time, long sentences. All are complicit in the murder, all were involved in the illegal arrest with their acceptance of the arrest and all the lies they put into their official reports. Innocent people do not lie.

      The mere fact that they didn’t get the man medical attention, when he complained of having difficulty breathing, should be enough to put them away for a long time. They were completely indifferent to a prisoner’s medical needs. Absolute negligence and malicious indifference.

        well garner complained he couldn’t breathe and it was caught on tape him dying while being choked to death. they too were indifferent to his well being. i don’t expect justice in this country when police are involved in the murder of a citizen anymore.

          I don’t expect it, either. But, I still demand it.

    Only in America can a mostly Black city, run by a Black mayor, with Black cops, be accused of systemic racism…against Black people.
