Baltimore Calm Overnight After Freddie Gray Mistrial

December 17, 2015  | 

The streets of Baltimore were calm overnight after the Wednesday announcement of a mistrial in the trial of police officer William Porter.

Porter was charged in connection with the April death of Freddie Gray from injuries he sustained while in police custody., facing four charges: second-degree assault, involuntary manslaughter, reckless endangerment and misconduct in office. He pleaded not guilty to all the charges, as have the other five officers charged in connection with the death.

It's unclear whether the state will pursue a retrial of Porter, ABC News reports.

Gray died in April from a severe spinal injury while in custody after being arrested when he fled from the police.

For those able to recall your college Literature course depicting a Farce, all of the ingredients required for a Farce were present at this Trial. Even the Denizen Baltimore Rioters figured it out and became silent. Law School professors now have a gold mine of "How to NOT handle legal proceedings" starting with the blatant error of the state delivering a large sum of settlement money to the Gray family BEFORE ADJUDICATION.

percy is back again trolling. Go back to your mom's basement with your boyfriend leonard. No one likes you.

GET OFF THE SITE ms. percy, and I won't direct my opinions against your idiodic comments. Plain and simple truth percy; you are not liked, nobody wants you or your boyfriend leonard on this site. So go away, and take that urn with you!
