Trump Admin Won’t Charge Baltimore Officers over Freddie Gray’s Death

HeadlineSep 13, 2017

Back in the United States, the Department of Justice announced Tuesday it will not bring federal charges against six Baltimore police officers over their roles in killing Freddie Gray, an African-American man from Baltimore who died after sustaining massive spinal injuries as he was transported in the back of a police van in April 2015. Six Baltimore police officers faced charges from the State’s Attorney’s Office related to the death, but prosecutors dropped all remaining charges in July 2016 after failing to win convictions for any of the first four officers to go on trial.
