Charges Dropped Against Remaining Officers In Freddie Gray Death
Baltimore's police commissioner says the decision by prosecutors to drop the remaining charges against three Baltimore officers in the death of Freddie Gray is a thoughtful move that will help the city move forward.
In announcing the decision, prosecutor Marilyn Mosby accused police of conducting a biased investigation into Gray's death, one that failed to produce a single conviction.
Activists say they are angry and disappointed. Sharon Black is an organizer for the Peoples Power Assembly, which has been holding rallies and protests in the city. She said she thinks the anger will build and build in the community again because police aren't being held accountable.
Gray's death added fuel to the growing Black Lives Matter movement, set off massive protests in the city and led to the worst riots the city had seen in decades.
