    In addition to the DOJ declining to bring charges, 5 of the 6 officers still have a lawsuit for malicious prosecution and defamation proceeding against Marilyn Mosby. In May, discovery was temporarily halted to allow MM to file an appeal. She filed that appeal in June, and the plaintiffs responded to that in July 2017.

    The 4th circuit hears cases from Sept to May, so there should be some activity on this appeal soon.

    The cases of the dozens of business owners against Mayor Stephanie Rawlings Blake and the city of Baltimore are still proceeding, as well. this from June:

    *By the way, do the math on 380 businesses x $5000 each settlement from the city. That's a paltry $1.9 M. And that's *if* all 380 filed their paperwork and agreed to waive any claims against the Mayor and the city. Seriously? The city thinks this was somehow fair??

    But yet, the city had no problem at all paying out $6.4 million to the distant relatives of Freddie Gray-- with no lawsuit filed, and all 6 of the officers aquitted/ not guilty/ charges dropped.

    I hope the officers get $6.4 million EACH in their lawsuit. That would be "fair", IMO.

    Out of all of the "murders by cop" that have been perpetrated and exposed over the years, I've always found this one particularly egregious. Spines do not spontaneously combust. These cops should not only have lost their badges, but they should all be behind bars. The thought that they could possibly gain financially from this is once again, sickening. What a disgrace and dishonor to the badge. The blue wall of silence needs to be dismantled in this, and every case. I know exactly why this case went down the way it did, and it's appalling, but not at all surprising. This family is never going to get the justice and peace they deserve. This case will not be forgotten, nor will Freddy.

    Yes let's not forget Freddy. The common criminal and drug dealer. The officers were simply doing their jobs in an area where its nearly impossible to police due to the number of criminals and con men. It's widely known that Freddy had a history of trying to collect a check by throwing himself around the inside of the patrol wagon as is the custom by some in Baltimore. To show you how insidious the con is in Baltimore it used to be common practice, upon seeing a minor bus wreck, to try and force your way onto the bus by the rear exit. The con was that once transit supervisors got there they would take the names of everyone on the bus and in a few weeks a check would be on the way.

    Not one of these officers committed a crime and juries said so. Your agenda is obvious and not appreciated.

    My agenda is that dirty cops face consequences for their murderous actions and that cops are held to a higher level of conduct than the common criminals that they face. Neither of those things are currently being addressed in LE. I don't really care if you appreciate my agenda.

    How are they dirty cops? They were all given a trial, by a prosecutor who HATED them and wanted desperately to see them fried like bacon. And the judge was African American.

    And none of them were found to be 'dirty.' So maybe you are mistaken?

    Right. And those things = a death sentence by cops who can't - or refuse to - control themselves. That's "justice" - for some but def not for all.

    So now Goodson was acquitted by a black judge and cleared of 21 administrative charges by a hearing board of his peers. Nothing yet has disproven the defense's contention that Gray, who had collected from the city before, threw himself around the passenger compartment of the wagon to intentionally injure himself again.

    I think we all know how this is going to end. These "officers" murdered this man and all got away with it. I'd like to think they will live lives of regret and shame, but then again I will never understand how anyone could participate in the murder and the cover up and live with themselves, period. We have an impenetrable blue wall in this country, and people wonder why so many have no faith in the integrity of LE. Only the police themselves can solve the problem that they themselves created.

    Freddie Gray case: Administrative trial begins for Baltimore Police Lt. Brian Rice
    As he was during Goodson’s administrative trial, Curtis was subjected to a withering cross-examination Monday during Rice’s trial.

    He repeatedly acknowledged not interviewing key witnesses who would have had firsthand knowledge of issues relevant to the charges against Rice, and of not turning over exculpatory evidence from the criminal trials to the charging committee.
