    What a big surprise. Compress a dudes spinal cord and then kill him while he's in handcuffs. If he's non-white, who gives a ****.

    I'm angry over my community's poor conditions so I'll burn and destroy my community to demonstrate my anger.

    Then I'll vote for Hillary.

    Lets see if Owebama and his shill AG can for once refrain from pouring fuel on the fire.

    Probably a given that they will seek federal charges, that process will drag on for years and hopefully the present political climate which favors criminals over LE will be radically changed by then.

    All the cops did was cuff him, stick in the back of an empty police van then deliberately sped around bashing him to death. I mean what's the big deal, right?

    This is the level of trust we've come to expect from those who are supposed to protect us, especially AFTER the suspect is taken into custody. Black, white, red or blue makes no difference, they senselessly murdered him.

    In all fairness, he didn't have anything to do with, nor was he part of the party that drove with Gray. He was accused of negligence in failing to buckle Gray in, and arresting without probable cause.

    In looking at the case, I can see why he would be acquitted, as for the most he was on the outer. For the case with the other officers, that is going to be the important one.

    As far as this thread goes, I'm actually finding it interesting how many people in this thread are going off the cuff without looking into the facts around this case. Perhaps people should read more into the case before posting.

    The judge was black. Does that make him racists against his own people?

    No, but assuming that the victim's skin tone makes him one of the judge's "own people" is racist. o_O

    Police, state's attorneys, judges - they are all a part of the system. This is a system that favors the supremacy of White skin over all others.

    Yes, even though her husband's policies put one in four black males between 20 and 29 years of age in prison for selling an ounce of pot.

    Or maybe the evidence showed that this particular officer deserved to be acquitted...

    Other way around; the prosecution couldn't prove its case. In this one, It can be seen. However, the negligence one had to be hard to judge, because failing to buckle Gray in was the catalyst to his injuries.

    I don't think there is any dispute that Nero failed to buckle Gray in. That is clear negligence which resulted in a death. The death would make it criminal negligence if any civilian had custody of that person. Hopefully the family can find some semblance of justice in civil court.

    I agree - I propose to calculate his potential legal earnings over a lifetime, multiply that by 1,000 and reward them that.

    Should come out to about $3.50 after lawyer fees & taxes.

    And if the evidence isn't there to prove the prosecution's case then the evidence says that the officer should be acquitted. It would be the same way in any other case where the prosecution can't prove their case.

    But the cop is white. He should be charged no matter what the evidence says
