Trial begins for the third Baltimore officer facing the most serious charges in the death of Freddie Gray.
There already have been two trials of the officers involved into the death of a black Baltimore youth Freddie Gray, but there has been no “guilty” verdict yet.
Officer William Porter is waiting for the second trial after the first jury turned unable to come to an agreement upon his responsibility, Edward Nero walks free.
The problem is that Freddie Gray is dead and officially noone has yet been held accountable for what happened to him.
Caesar Goodson Jr. is the only suspect in the case charged besides assault, reckless endangerment and misconduct in office with second-degree depraved-heart murder and manslaughter. In other words, he is the one to blame, from the point of view of the state.
The choice of the responsible one is quite logical, Goodson was at the wheel of the police van that day and it was his duty to guarantee that the arrestee was properly secured and to drive the van with regard to Gray’s condition.
Goodson bothered to do none of the above; as a result many people in the city also blame him first of all. He chose to have a bench trial, possibly hoping for the same verdict judge Barry Williams gave to his colleague Edward Nero, but there were protesters in front of the court building, who insisted that the bench trial “deprived the citizens of Baltimore” the possibility to decide Goodson’s fate.
Caesar Goodson Jr. must be convicted, he also deserves to be jailed for the whole period of 30 years, which is maximum time recommended for his crimes. We also hope to see all the officers involved in Gray’s death sitting next to him on a cell couch.
