Baltimore To Pay Freddie Gray’s Family $6.4 Million In Wrongful Death Settlement

The family of slain teenager Freddie Gray have agreed to a $6.4 million wrongful death settlement
with the City of Baltimore nearly five months after Gray died of severe
spinal injuries he sustained while riding in the back of a police
vehicle.

It’s sad when it’s the taxpayers footing the bill instead of the officers involved (in particular) or what has become a hyper – militarized police force (in general) which has been allowed to run rampant and with impunity.

Even sadder that no amount of reparation will ever bring Freddie Gray back to his loved ones anymore than it will add or subtract years to the man wrongfully convicted who has x years of an unjust sentence imposed on him against his will by an unjust system;

-Protect and serve my ass.

Protect who?

Protect what?

Shit is busted, broken and bankrupt I say; how’s that for broken windows?

It’s time we all did something about it. Who gives a fuck what color you are or aren’t. Shit has got to stop. Period end of point. Enough is enough
