Officer Nero found not guilty on all charges. Billy Murphy, civil rights activist and attorney for Gray's family, told local media immediately after the 20 minute verdict was read he thought the judge had done a good job, and that Baltimoreans had no reason to be angry. Mayor Rawlings-Blake issued a statement that Officer Nero is still facing an internal (administrative) investigation on the charges, and called for any demonstrations about the verdict to be peaceful. Before the verdict was read, media far outnumbered the half dozen or so "protestors" waiting outside the court house. Now that local media has announced the verdict and is focusing on the fear of violence, a few other protestors have gathered and expressed their opinion the verdicts were unfair.
