Freddie GrayThe African-American community and all who have been following the the dreadful story of Freddie Gray‘s death are currently rejoicing, as his death has been ruled a homicide.

You will recall that Gray, a 25-year-old African American man, died in police custody, as he suffered a severe spinal cord injury, his voice box was crushed, and his neck snapped. He eventually went into a coma, and died days later.

Washington Post reports that Baltimore state’s attorney Marilyn Mosby, announced the ruling on Friday.

The six police officers involved in Gray’s arrest and subsequent death have multiple charges leveled against them including second-degree murder, manslaughter and misconduct. CNN reports that if found guilty, each of the officers could face more than 10 years in prison.

    Prisons in America have a larger population of African-American men, White police officers could be going to prison for killing an African-American male. Hmmm, lets see how this plays out. *sips tea*

    My heart broken again on the way this over zealous American police arrest blacks! Why will over 3 police arrest a single black boy? Even when the boy did not resist? tied hand and feet ,unbelyed in a rough driven van,where his poor head hit iron uncontrollably?

    Isn’t it too dangerous to be a black man in US? I just hate US for this. British police have alot to teach them.

    My husband once asked a NYPD police officer on train station direction, he was full of suspicion as my husband pulled back and said sorry thanks.

    Black people are criminals and white people are not;!! I have resolved never to greet these killers called American police. Pass and I pass. Mtcheew
