Six Baltimore Officers Charged In Freddie Gray’s Death
Martin Luther King, Jr. once said that the moral arm of the universe is long but bends toward justice. The long arm has finally bent toward Baltimore, even if took nearly a week of the city burning to the ground for it to bend there.
The six officers involved in Freddie Gray’s death have been charged with a series of offenses that range from second-degree murder to manslaughter. Of course, this is only the start, but it’s a good start nonetheless, considering how most other officers are slapped on the wrist with either desk duty or administrative leave.
Only time will tell whether the armed thugs will receive the justice they deserve. In a just world, these pigs would be convicted for their crimes and sent to the slaughterhouse. Considering similar incidents such as Ferguson, their charges will more likely be “dropped”, and the city will devolve into rioting once again. Let’s hope this time around, the judge and jury actually make the right choice.
