On April 12, Freddie Gray, healthy and whole, was arrested by the Baltimore Police.
According to his family and attorney Billy Murphy, when Freddie arrived at the hospital he had three broken vertebrae, his spinal cord was severed 80 percent, his voice box damaged, and his brain was swollen.
The police thus far have refused to give any reasonable explanation of how Gray went from healthy to dead in their custody.
A bystander took this video as the police bundled Freddie Gray into the van.
I’m not a doctor (well I am actually – just not the medical sort), but I would hazard a guess that Freddie’s spine was already severed at that stage.
