Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby gave an update in the Freddie Gray case this morning stating that “We have probable cause to file criminal charges.” Six police officers have been charged in the death and it has been ruled a homicide.
According to the Huffington Post Mosby also stated that, “no crime had been committed by Mr. Gray.” Gray was arrested for possessing a switchblade, but Mosby said Friday the knife in Gray’s possession was not a switchblade and was lawful.

2. We all want Justice. And our city will get the answers we are looking for. My deepest sympathy goes out to the GRAY Family. To see my city in a State of Emergency is just shocking. We need to protect our city, not destroy it. What happens when we get the answers that we want, and the media attention is not there anymore? We go back to being the same ol Baltimore City again. If not yourself, then Think about the youth. How this will impact them. Let’s build our city up not tear it down. Although, we want justice, let’s look at the real issues at hand. For example, When was the last school built in Baltimore? That’s just one example. I know my community is fed up. I’m all about fighting for what we believe in. The anger, the resentment, the neglect that our community feels right now, will not change over night. Continue, fighting for what you believe in. But remember, it takes no time to destroy something. But, it can take forever to build it back up. Peace7. #Thisonehitshome #BeMore #LetsNotFallForTheTrap “Please Understand What State Of Emergency Mean”(Destroy and Conquer)#StayMe7oSource: 2 of 17
