I guess it's not a crime for the police to cause grave injury to an unarmed suspect?
I guess that if you're an airhead like that old fart Rush Limbaugh, the family of the victims killed by law enforcement are enjoying that huge payday. Matter of fact, where's Al Sharpton so he can shake down more!
Seeing that these trials are done by only a judge and not a room of fellow citizens, I guess if I commit a criminal act that is considered non-violent and I get roughed up by the police and eventually be left either severely hurt or killed, it's my own fault for my death.
The second officer involved in the April 2015 death of Freddie Gray was found not guilty.
Edward Nero was one of the six officers indicted by the Baltimore prosecutor in the death of Freddie Gray. The incident was caught on tape showing the officers picking up a screaming Freddie being hauled into an awaiting police van. On his way to city lockup, Freddie was injured by either the van or the encounter. The injuries left him in a coma with a severed spine. He would die of his injuries.
When Freddie was buried, it set off a riot in the city. It drove the conservative and racial agitators into blaming the mayor, the prosecutor Marilyn Mosby, #BlackLivesMatter, and President Barack Obama for the unrest in Baltimore.
Nero was charged with misdemeanor charges of second-degree assault and two counts of misconduct in office for his role in the arrest.
Nero was also charged with reckless endangerment for shackling Freddie and placing him the van without properly checking.
This is the second event in which an officer walks in the murder of an unarmed suspect. William Porter the first to be charged was a hung jury.
The attorney for Nero said that his client was innocent of all charges.
"The judge who tried the case obviously went along with the idea that a defendant is persumed to be innocent unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt", attorney Barry Slotnick to the Huffington Post.
"What we have here is clearly as a case in which there was a conclusion that the judge drew with regards to the intentions of Officer Nero and as a result the verdict came in as not guilty, I think that the present verdict will affect the remaining trials in that the other defendants will be acquitted, as well in deference to the judge's decision."
Maryland's Governor Larry Hogan and Baltimore mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake along with Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) stress to the public to not react to violence and destruction upon the verdict.
The city police along with state authorities were ordered to watch the judge known to the public as Barry Williams and Nero after the verdict.

He's got a book deal probably in the works and he can go home to his family saying that Freddie Gray shouldn't have ran. He would have probably had a night in the lockup instead of a six foot hole.
Conservatives are rejoicing that this officer got away with murder. They believe no matter how much evidence to the contrary, police officers are there to serve the communities. They think that Blacks and their attitude towards police creates the problems we're facing. They don't care about the systematic pull-overs, unlawful detainments, unlawful searches and threats opposed to Black, Hispanic, or practicing Muslims.
For them, it's just another defeat for liberalism. No amount of money could bring back Freddie Gray.
