This morning [July 27] the Baltimore Sun reports that the prosecutors have dropped all charges against Garrett Miller, William Porter, and Sgt. Alicia White, the three remaining Baltimore police officers involved in the death of Freddie Gray.
What does this mean? It means that the prosecution will not secure any convictions for a death that was ruled a homicide. Judge Barry G. Williams was expected to preside over the three remaining cases but due to his previous acquittals of Edward Nero, Caesar Goodson, and Lt. Brian Rice the likelihood of more acquittals were unfortunately very high.
The decision was entered this morning before Miller’s trial was scheduled to begin. Chief Deputy State’s Attorney Michael Schatzow called for the charges to be dropped. Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby held a press conference in West Baltimore, steps from where Freddie Gray was arrested, “defending her decision to bring charges against the officers” saying “the decision to drop them was agonizing”
The outrage of this decision is blatant across America and to hold no one accountable for the murder of Freddie Gray is far from justice. This story is ongoing and can be read here and Mosby’s press conference below
