Every time I hear a reporter talk about Freddie Gray’s death I am struck by his crime. He made eye contact with the police and ran from them. So they arrested him and something happened on the way to the precinct, and now the police are mum. No one knows anything, but the police want to tell us about Gray’s background. Gray had an arrest record, but did the police know about his record when they started their pursuit? When did we require that the victim have a perfect record? Is your victimhood denied by virtue of a previous bad act? It will be interesting to see what happens with this case, but with 6 policeman involved will anyone break the blue line, and tell us what actually happened or will the city simply settle another case of excessive force.
Freddie Gray looked at the police, and ran from them and now he is dead…why?
