A new CNN report says that the Baltimore police investigation into the arrest and death of Freddie Gray doesn’t square up with the charges filed by State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby against the six cops involved. Last Friday, Mosby declared Gray’s death a homicide and announced charges for the six officers ranging from assault to involuntary manslaughter, and second-degree murder.
But as police sources told CNN, the Baltimore police investigation only went as far as manslaughter, not second-degree murder.
Beyond that, as opposed to claims that Gray’s knife was legal in Baltimore and therefore his arrest was illegal, the police report said Gray’s knife was, in fact, illegal.
And on top of that, CNN’s also reporting some details about one of Mosby’s top investigators, Avon Mackel, an ex-cop who was demoted back in 2009 and had a SWAT team come to his house over a drunken incident; the intimation being that he might hold a grudge of some sort.
