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.
