Freddie Gray and the Irony of Rejoicing for Justice

I must admit that I was happy to hear Marilyn Mosby announce that charges would be filed against the officers who arrested Freddie Gray. I was surprised that the charges came today, but I still believe in the system. It was surprising to see the jubilation within Gray’s community. One of the community pastors said this is a community that does not know what victory looks like. Justice should not be a cause for jubilation it should actually be an expectation, but sadly in some neighborhoods justice is as rare as spotting a unicorn. Justice is what we seek and over the next few months the Freddie Gray case will give us the opportunity to see exactly what justice looks like.
