BlackLivesMatter loses again.....as usual.

All officers exonerated.

Now they should sue BlackLivesMatter for harassment.

Trouble is the BLM jackasses have no money anyway.

I wish I would've been in the courtroom to hear the evidence. I thought for sure someone was guilty of something.

Prosecutors drop all charges against Baltimore police officer...

BALTIMORE - Prosecutors have dropped the remaining charges against Baltimore police officers in the death of Freddie Gray, bringing an end to the case without a conviction.

Gray was a black man who was critically injured in the back of a police van in April 2015.

Prosecutors' decision Wednesday comes after a judge had already acquitted three of the six officers charged in the case, including the van driver and another officer who was the highest-ranking of the group.

A fourth officer had his case heard by a jury, who deadlocked and the judge declared a mistrial.

Bravo for the courts doing their jobs!

BLM Protested about it, they did not harass anyone. What does that have to do with anything? that is a fairly ignorant statement all around.

This case was a prime example of what can happen when people base decisions on emotion and not fact.

This is what happens when cases are distorted by the Media. Same thing happened with Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown.

Gray was a small-time career criminal who ran from police and was caught with an illegal knife and resisted arrest and got hurt badly enough that he died.

That's it.......should have been the end of the story.

Except for sleazy politicians and BlackLivesMatter.

Officers are due major financial restitution for the harassing political prosecution.........well, that would be justice, but we won't get justice.

And we won't loot and burn over it.

Prosecution was not done by BLM but by local authorities - complain to them.

Cost was borne by the state, who brought the charges.

There was no harassment, but proceedings by the state based upon what they believed to be credible evidence.

Educate yourself before posting.

imo, what you would have witnesses is a rush to judgement and a poorly prepared DA case.

It was a bench trial, which means that a jury was foregone and the cases were heard by a judge only.

You know what that means? The trial was decided by a Judge who is part of the problem.

As the cell phone videos that have come out frequently show, evidence is often irrelevant when it comes to police behavior. Whether it's shooting 107 bullets into a car that's been mis-identified to putting a person in a chokehold and contributing to their death against explicit department policy, Police are not held to the same standards as civilians.

The shocking thing is conservatives are fine with government overreach as long as it's the police while simultaneously whining about the FBI taking back bird sanctuaries from armed rebels.

Someone was. She should lose her license and her job over this one.

You need a new dictionary. The Baltimore riots were harassment of the city of Baltimore in an attempt to force a case be brought against the officers. It worked. The idiot DA brought charges against the officers against all reason and tried to bury evidence that would later exonerate the officers.

The results today show that at least the courts didn't buckle under the pressure.

Wrong.

Bench trials are used when the case obviously has no merit but a jury might be swayed by Media propaganda and misinformed public opinion (and riots in the street).

Bench trials were the obvious choice in this situation.

:roll: oh yes, I'm sure that the black judge who has previously investigated and prosecuted past police misconduct for the U.S. Justice Department is really a part of the problem. :roll: If I could I'd give your statement 100 :roll: emoji's.
