Prosecutors dropped charges against the remaining three of the six Baltimore police officers charged in Freddie Gray’s death. The 25-year-old’s spine was severed and he fell into a coma while in police custody, leading to his death three days later.
The outcome of the case has sparked national outrage, creating speculation about Baltimore’s State’s Attorney, Marilyn Mosby’s handling of the case. Frustrated citizens speculate a “rushed” job to get a conviction for all six officers.
The decision to drop the charges comes after a year-long court battle for prosecutors to prove that the officers involved disregarded Gray’s safety by not fastening his seatbelt while he was in the back of the police van, transporting him to the jail. The prosecutors also argued that the officers failed to give Gray medical attention.
On Wednesday, July 27th, Marilyn Mosby held a press conference.
