    She looks like a hooker and he like her pimp. I understand the officer's interest. But their reaction to being filmed is obviously inacceptable.

    Hmmm. As was probable, there is now an investigation of the investigation/charges in the Freddie Gray case stating that some charges are legally overblown and the knife he was carrying is actually illegal.

    Baltimore probe into black man's death fails to support charges: CNN - Yahoo News

    The Baltimore police investigation into the death of a black man from injuries sustained in police custody fails to support some charges filed by the city prosecutor, CNN reported on Thursday.

    Citing officials briefed on the separate probes by prosecutor Marilyn Mosby and police into the death of Freddie Gray, the television news network said the lack of support for charges from the police findings could allow lawyers representing the officers to undercut the prosecution.

    This isn't a new investigation. This is the police department bitching to the media that they came up with different results from the prosecutor and the sheriff's dpt. It's just hearsay with no actual supporting evidence. This is shitty journalism just parroting remarks from someone within the BPD.

    Yeah, it was CNN and Reuters.

    The bitching won't really stop until the case goes to court and all the evidence can be laid out. It's awkward to have a discussion in the media about it because it's a case that hasn't been tried yet.

    eyewitness testimonies are so reliable, especially when given by people who are emotionally invested in a particular outcome. the other day in baltimore, this woman actually witnessed a police officer shoot a kid "in the back right in front of her face," except he had no bullet wounds, and she didn't see the weapon he was carrying. clearly, a case of police brutality...because racism. and emotion. and cops are pigs.

    The fox news corespondent thought he saw the same thing. He saw a guy running. He heard a bang, He saw the guy go down.

    Anyone could have made that mistake and the fact that it was Fox goes to show that since clearly he wouldn't have an anti-police bias.

    uhh...the fox news correspondent was reporting on what eyewitnesses were telling him. he did say that he heard a single gun shot, but not that he saw a cop shoot someone. that was the woman making those claims very passionately. this is why it's important to not jump to conclusions until all the evidence has been gathered and thoroughly investigated. pandering to people's emotions for political purposes is not the correct course of action. just like in ferguson, the masses will believe whatever narrative supports their deep-seated biases and ignore any evidence to the contrary. it's amazing that commentators are still going on about how mike brown was a victim who was shot in the back while surrendering with his hands in the air. just out of curiosity, @Beorn, what are your thoughts regarding that? do you believe that eric holder and the department of justice skewed the facts in their investigation in order to spare darren wilson from being indicted, or was ferguson and the media premature in determining his guilt long before an investigation even took place?

    That's leland vitter. ANother fox correspondent, Mike Tobin, said it happened right in front of him.


    just like in ferguson, the masses will believe whatever narrative supports their deep-seated biases and ignore any evidence to the contrary. it's amazing that commentators are still going on about how mike brown was a victim who was shot in the back while surrendering with his hands in the air. just out of curiosity, @Beorn, what are your thoughts regarding that? do you believe that eric holder and the department of justice skewed the facts in their investigation in order to spare darren wilson from being indicted, or was ferguson and the media premature in determining his guilt long before an investigation even took place?
    I don't know what happened. I do know that the investigation was handled poorly. I do know that investigators who arrived on the scene possibly allowed their own biases to show when they showed up and said "pretty obvious what happened here." What the PD and prosecutor's office did with the grand jury, the handling of protests, the handling of the media, and the handling of the investigation was absolutely absurd and not in the interest of peace and justice.

    Eric Holder was looking for charges for federal crimes which would require a much higher standard of intent they would need to meet. From the get-go I knew there would be no federal charges. If the Prosecutor treated Wilson like they treat any other citizen (even taking into account his right to self-defense) he would have been charged and this would have gone to trial. Prosecutors don't look for outs. They look for any way they can to nail someone. That's their job.

    Out of interest why do you think things exploded in Ferguson? Do you blame the media or people jumping to conclusions or what?

    Video shows white officer kicking black man in face



    Key points to remember:

    1. It took 2 years of the ACLU filing FOIA requests to get the video.
    2. The original grand jury, 2 years ago, didn't charge the officer, but thankfully he was charged on Monday.

    Things get really weird after 16 mins. Did you watch the whole video?

    Irrespective of what happened in this incident it's kinda obvious that USA has a bit of an issue with police misconduct.

    Urghhhhhh...

    Let me correct what I said above, USA has a big issue. And it's sad that the law is trying to protect these bad apples.
