Baltimore Police Union: Cops Not To Blame In Freddie Gray’s Death
Baltimore's police union says the officers charged in Freddie Gray's death aren't to blame.
Baltimore City Fraternity of Police President Gene Ryan issued a statement today calling for an independent prosecutor in the case.
State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby announced today that Gray's death had been ruled a homicide. Six officers are facing charges, with one being charged with second-degree murder.
Ryan questioned Mosby's objectivity in the ruling and claimed each officer "diligently balanced their obligations" to protect both Gray and the public.
Gray died after suffering a severe spinal injury while in police custody, sparking citywide protests and riots this week in Baltimore. (Metro Networks Inc.)
