The Baltimore police department completed its investigation into the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray and handed over its findings to the state’s attorney. However, said finding won’t be shared with the public anytime soon. 

Gray’s suspicious death due to a spinal injury sparked protests that eventually devolved into looting and rioting in Baltimore shortly after his funeral on Monday, April 27.

Reports the New York Times:

The announcement opens a new phase in a case that has riveted the city, sparking demonstrations and unrest, as the focus shifts to the new, relatively untested state’s attorney for Baltimore, Marilyn J. Mosby. Her office will fold the police findings into its own investigation.

But officials continued to warn that completion of the police inquiry would not translate into new revelations for the public about what happened on April 12 to Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old man who died. The Police Department has stated that it will not disclose what it has found, and Ms. Mosby’s office has said that it does not expect to make any significant release of information until it has assembled a more complete picture of the incident.

What conspiracy theorists, and anyone with common sense, are noting is the suspect leak of a report that included a statement from a prisoner who was in a police van with Gray. Said prisoner that Gray was intentionally “trying to injure himself” while in police custody.

The sheer audacity of authorities—because, who else would have “leaked” this info?—trying to get the public to believe a man almost severed his own spine would be comical if it wasn’t so blatantly duplicitous and maddening.

Gray was unconscious in the police when it arrived at the station on April 12 and died from his injuries a week later.

Can we truly believe anything the cops are saying when it comes to this investigation when it’s a safe bet they will do any and everything to cover up any sort of wrongdoing?
