Freddie Gray: Death ruled Homicide, Officers Charged, What’s Next?

Freddie Gray

As the nation continues to be consumed in uprising over the death of Freddie Grey, word has come that the investigation has reached a pivotal point with Gray’s death being ruled a homicide and 6 police officers being charged  according to CNN.

Those charges include one officer, the driver of the police van, being charged with multiple counts, including second-degree depraved-heart murder. Other officers were also charged with several counts, including manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter, and second-degree assault.

So what’s next? In terms of public response we know this is not even a dent in the surface, but it is a step in the right direction. Legally, Baltimore City State’s Attorney, Marilyn Mosby, who ironically comes from a long lineage of police in her own family, will now prosecute the officers.
