Cops Involved with Freddie Gray Death Facing Charges

BALTIMORE _ Following the previous coverage by news companies across the country on the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore, Maryland, six police officers were charged with murder in the latest news from down south.

Since what has been a ruling of an illegal arrest of Freddie Gray on April 12, 2015 Baltmore has been in a state of unrest where protesters have looted, vandalized, and destroyed many areas throughout the city.

Numerous videos of Gray’s arrest surfaced in wake of his arrest and death a week after being taken in by police who neglected to provide medical attention for Gray.
