The death of Freddie Gray has been ruled a homicide. According to the state attorney of Baltimore, Marilyn J. Mosby, there, was “probably cause” to prosecute cops for Gray’s death, which was the result of a spinal chord injury, for charges including manslaughter, assault and second degree murder.

Reports the New York Times:

In a news conference, the state’s attorney, Marilyn J. Mosby, described repeated mistreatment of Mr. Gray. She said that time and again police mistreated Mr. Gray, arresting him with no grounds, violating police procedure by putting him in cuffs and leg cuffs in the van without seat belting him and then repeatedly failing to get him medical attention. She said that when he was removed from the wagon, “Mr. Gray was no longer breathing at all.”

The death, Ms. Mosby said, is believed to be the result of a fatal injury to Mr. Gray while he was riding in the van without a seat belt. As she announced the charges, there was cheering from people in the crowd.

All six officers were charged, one with second-degree murder.

Before the right wingers chime in, Mosby comes from a family of cops.

The question now is; will justice be served?
