Prosecution has FAILED to make their case against the previous three officers, so the three remaining cases have been dismissed. Should the nation prepare for more #BLM protests? This news is shocking, but certainly the Baltimore police are ready to put this case past them.
Prosecutors are dropping charges against the three remaining Baltimore police officers facing trial in connection with Freddie Gray’s death.
Gray, then 25, died after sustaining a neck injury while in police custody in April 2015. Three of the six officers charged in the case had already been acquitted.
A pretrial hearing for Officer Garrett Miller had been set for Wednesday. Trials for Officers Alicia White and William Porter had been scheduled for the fall.
Baltimore Chief Deputy State’s Attorney Michael Schatzow made the request to drop charges against them in court Wednesday.
Three officers were acquitted in the case: Edward Nero, a bike officer involved in the initial police encounter with Gray; Caesar Goodson, who drove the van that transported Gray; and Lt. Brian Rice, the highest-ranking officer charged in connection with Gray’s death.
