Baltimore PD Tries To Float Utter Bullshit – Update X 2A

no legsThis is the greatest heap of bullshit that I have heard in a while. Courtesy of the Washington Post:

A prisoner sharing a police transport van with Freddie Gray told investigators that he could hear Gray “banging against the walls” of the vehicle and believed that he “was intentionally trying to injure himself,” according to a police document obtained by The Washington Post.

The prisoner, who is currently in jail, was separated from Gray by a metal partition and could not see him. His statement is contained in an application for a search warrant, which is sealed by the court. The Post was given the document under the condition that the prisoner not be named because the person who provided it feared for the inmate’s safety.

The document, written by a Baltimore police investigator, offers the first glimpse of what might have happened inside the van. It is not clear whether any additional evidence backs up the prisoner’s version, which is just one piece of a much larger probe.

Do they seriously expect people to believe that Freddie Gray crushed his own voice box, severed his spine and broke three vertebrae, all while he was handcuffed and his legs shackled in the back of the paddy wagon?

no legs6Freddie Gray was already in serious medical trouble before he was placed in that van.

UPDATE:

Lead investigative reporter for WBAL-TV, Jayne Miller, refutes a police document reported on in the Washington Post that Freddie Gray intentionally tried to injure himself while in police custody.

UPDATE2:

Courtesy of The Guardian:

A previously undisclosed stop made by the police van carrying Freddie Gray after his arrest in Baltimore has been discovered by investigators, police said, as they announced they had completed a criminal inquiry into his death.

Details of what happened during the stop may shed new light on how Gray sustained fatal injuries in police custody. It was the second of four made by the vehicle on its journey to the western district police headquarters.

Gray was taken from the police station to hospital with a broken neck. He died on April 19, prompting a wave of protests over police brutality.

“The second stop has been revealed to us in the course of our investigation and was previously unknown to us,” Baltimore deputy police commissioner Kevin Davis said at a press conference. Davis said the stop was filmed by a private CCTV camera.

News of the discovery was disclosed as police said they ha completed their inquiry a day before a self-imposed deadline and passed their file to Marilyn Mosby, the state’s attorney for Baltimore. Mosby will now decide whether or not to bring criminal prosecutions.

So the police lied about the number of stops!! Initially they said there were three stops…

    10 Years Before Freddie Gray, Baltimore Police ‘Accidentally’ Snapped a Perp’s Spine

    And yes, he died – because he took a leak in public.

    In the earlier spinal injury death, 42-year-old Dondi Johnson was arrested for public urination and loaded into a police van similar to the one that would later be used to transport Gray.

    “Mr. Johnson got into the back of the van without assistance,” court papers say. “He obeyed the officers’ commands and did not threaten any of the officers or act violently.”….

    When she [the driver] arrived at the District and opened the back door of the van, Mr. Johnson was lying on the floor of the van and could not move,” court papers say.

    No criminal charges were filed.

        One of the many, many things that really gets to me was something you alluded to when you spoke of seeing that devastating rugby injury – people don’t seem to understand the enormous force it takes to break a neck. To suggest someone voluntarily did it to themselves is not only utter bullshit, it’s utter idiocy.

      BALTIMORE, Md. (WUSA9) — Baltimore Police have paid out million in settlements to victims who claim they were critically injured after officers left them unsecured in transport vans which were allegedly intentionally driven roughly.

      The practice is known as giving a “cowboy ride” or a “rough ride”, according to attorney Philip Federico. “When it does happen, its most definitely intentional,” Federico said.

      Federico has represented critically injured victims in two such cases where juries awarded up to $39 million in damages.

    A complete takedown of the lies spread by the Baltimore PD and Washington Post on Freddie Gray from Daily Kos.
    http://tinyurl.com/mz4e4rl

    It includes this beauty: “One conservative reporter is claiming that Gray severed his spine jumping from a three-story window eluding police and then running full force into a wall. Except even the Baltimore police have claimed they simply spotted him on the street.”

    “The police lied about the number of stops.”

    The cops are proven liars.GPS and cameras in all the vans will fix that shit real quick.
    If I was investigating these six cops,I’d subpoena their cell phone records during the time frame in question.Triangulation off cell phone towers would show precise location(s) and times.I’ll wager their texts during that time frame would be enlightening……

    What city police force will it be next month? Most of these street cops look like young military trained guys who probably are all suffering from PTSD and paranoia. Kill! Kill! Kill!

    Apparently, they have now arrested Kevin Moore. He is the guy who took the video.
