92. I understand the value of discussion.

Yes, it can be fruitful.

Here's the facts as presented this morning by USA Today: 'The riots stem from the death of Gray. He was arrested on April 12 in Baltimore and suffered a life-threatening spinal cord injury while in police custody. Police stopped Gray after he fled "unprovoked upon noticing police presence," Officer Garrett Miller wrote in a police report. Miller said police arrested Gray after they found a knife clipped to his pants pocket. William Murphy, lawyer for the Gray family, says police had no right to pursue and detain Gray. He died in a Baltimore hospital on April 19. Police continue to investigate how Gray sustained the injuries, including the events that transpired during a 45-minute ride that he spent in a police transport van. Police have acknowledged there were issues with Gray's arrest and that officers did not keep Gray seat-belted into the van. Six officers have been suspended with pay while investigators search for answers.'

I feel that from the moment they first pursued and detained Freddie Gray to the moment he died, the police officers displayed a depraved indifference to life. They had no right to pursue and detain him in the first instance. It depends on the state laws of Maryland how it would be considered. Whether depraved & reckless indifference to human life or death during commission of a felony, any way you look at it the police are responsible for Freddie Gray's death. More facts will be placed into evidence. Starting with the facts presented in the above paragraph, I believe all six officers should be charged with homicide.
