[FONT=&quot]By Donna Owens[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]BALTIMORE (Reuters) - Baltimore police officer Caesar Goodson Jr was found not guilty on Thursday of second-degree depraved heart murder in the death of black detainee Freddie Gray, the most serious criminal charge he faced.[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Judge Barry Williams handed down the verdict in Baltimore City Circuit Court. Goodson, 46, was the driver of a police transport van in which Gray broke his neck in April 2015. His death triggered rioting and protests in the majority black city.[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]The judge has not yet ruled on the less serious counts Goodson faced, including three counts of manslaughter, reckless endangerment, second-degree assault and misconduct in office.[/FONT]

The President was wrong again. How many times does he get to attack white people before they see him as the racist he is?

Re: Baltimore cop not guilty of most serious charge in death of Freddie Gray

Freddie Gray case: Officer Caesar Goodson Jr. not guilty on all charges - Baltimore Sun

Officer Caesar Goodson Jr., 46, had faced the most serious charges of any of the six officers indicted in Gray's arrest and death last April, including second-degree depraved heart murder. Goodson was also acquitted of three counts of manslaughter, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and misconduct in office.

Knew it was coming.. not guilty on all charges.

Mosby should drop the charges on the other 4. A case brought with no evidence, but just for the prosecutor's own biases and to appease the mob.

This is straight from Obama's press sec. It all has to do with Obama. He even formed task forces...what part of this case wasn't about Obama?

Yep another case where he put his foot in his mouth.
“This has been going on for a long time,” the President said. “This is not new, and we shouldn’t pretend that it’s new.

Well I take that back.He was speaking the truth for once.
Legal arrests HAVE been going along for a long time.

This is probably the worst president that we have had in ages.
most corrupt we have had in a while.

That whole case was nothing more than a pander to the BLM movement and they couldn't present any evidence
that those cops did anything. all of them were let go of.

I have found that the liberals have selective hearing and knowledge when it comes to Obama or any liberal.
they are full of excuses and everything else.

of course some of these people were the same ones saying that if you didn't vote for Obama you were a racist as well.

THis DA was grandstanding to bring charges in the first place, then did crap work from what I hear. Dumping the rest of the cases is just a start, the DA's office is in as much need of reform as the police department was/is.

The Baltimore DA isn't any more intelligent than the typical street Ratchets that you see tearing up the IHOP and Denny's restaurants on youtube.

When we combine not too bright with politically motivated at the DA's office this is the resultant crapolla.

These cases both cost the citizens a lot of money and demoralizes them.

This idiot should resign.

This was the right ruling based on what I know. But isn't Goodson black?

He's part of the white power system, He's Uncle Tom Goodson workin' for Massa White Society. real black people don't become judges.....

is exactly how this will be spun, and in case you think this is satire (well it kind of is) I actually heard a speech on NPR one night by an African American woman claiming this very thing, that President Obama and Mayor Rawlings-Blake were just overseers appointed by a white power system.

the OPs statements were silly, but not entirely without merit. if there is an extreme that sees the entire system as totally white controlled then it is completely valid for another to see the continuing trials as an attack on whites.

Race has been the central part of this issue from day one, so that people see it from racially charged lenses is to be expected.

Nope
Nice to see your links though???

Obama on Freddie Gray case: "Vital that the truth comes out" - CBS News
Shortly after Baltimore's top prosecutor announced that Freddie Gray's death has been ruled a homicide, President Obama on Friday said that "it is absolutely vital that the truth comes out on what happened to Mr. Freddie Gray."

Speaking from the White House during an event to mark World Press Freedom Day, the president noted that he does not comment on ongoing legal processes. However, he said, "I can tell you that justice needs to be served, [and] all the evidence needs to be presented."

Obama: 'No excuse' for violence in Baltimore - CNNPolitics.com
Washington (CNN)President Barack Obama on Tuesday condemned the "criminals and thugs who tore up" the city of Baltimore on Monday night, after rioting and looting paralyzed the city and overwhelmed local officials.
The sustained outbreak of violence followed the funeral for Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old man who died after he was arrested more than two weeks ago. Cars were set on fire, stores were destroyed, and six officers were seriously injured. It was the first time Obama has commented on the turmoil in Baltimore that has followed Gray's death.

Re: Baltimore cop not guilty of most serious charge in death of Freddie Gray


“This has been going on for a long time,” the President said. “This is not new, and we shouldn’t pretend that it’s new. The good news is that perhaps there’s some newfound awareness, because of social media and video cameras and so forth, that there are problems and challenges when it comes to how policing and our laws are applied in certain communities and we have to pay attention to it.”

What isn't new? What did Obama mean wasn't 'new'?
