Who then killed 25-year-old Freddie Gray, if no one could be held responsible?
The evidence of injustice in U.S. popped out again Thursday, June 23, in Freddie Gray’s case as Circuit Judge Barry Williams announced verdict for Caesar Goodson Jr., one of the suspects, who was charged with involuntary manslaughter, manslaughter by vehicles (gross negligence and criminal negligence), second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and misconduct in office.
Just after Goodson’s not guilty announcement, Baltimore Police Union called on State Attorney Marilyn Mosby to drop all charges against five remaining officers, none of which has been convicted yet.
The union simply sent a message that Mosby is wasting her time because, if Goodson, who faced the most serious charges, was set free, how much longer will it take judges to let the others with lesser charges go scot-free also.
Attorney Mosby, losing Goodson’s case, is however blamed, by some critics, for being ineffective. But despite Mosby being pressured by state officials, she determines to protect black people and fight for the right course. Now, when all killer cops of this country heaved a sigh of relief, her noble task became more difficult and more urgent.
This gives a clear view of how dead our justice system has become. Who then could be responsible for the death of a young African-American, beaten and brutalized by cops?
