BREAKING : Mistrial in Freddie Gray Case

15 posts in this topic

The latest on the trial of a Baltimore police officer who is charged with manslaughter in the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who was injured in the back of a police transport van (all times local).

1:25 p.m.

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is questioning why Freddie Gray demonstrators are not protesting the rising murder rate in the city.

Hogan spoke on WBAL's C4 show on Tuesday as jurors began their second day of deliberations in the trial of Officer William Porter, the first of six officers being tried in connection with Gray's death.

While Hogan says people have the right to express their frustrations and protest in a peaceful manner, the Republican governor is asking: "Where are the people protesting the 330 people murdered?"

The governor says state and city officials are prepared for protests if there is a verdict in the Gray case. Hogan says he spoke with Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake on Monday night about coordinating a response.

I wonder what's going to happen with this verdict. If he's acquitted there will be riots. If he's not acquitted there will still be riots.

After Deadlock, Baltimore Jurors to Resume Deliberations in Freddie Gray's Death Wednesday

Jurors deliberated until 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in the trial of a Baltimore police officer charged in the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray, after earlier saying they were deadlocked.

The jury had said about two hours earlier that they were deadlocked in the case against Officer William Porter.

At that time, Judge Barry Williams sent them back to continue deliberations, telling them it was their duty to come to a unanimous verdict on the four charges. He urged jurors to consult with each other, also telling them they shouldn't hesitate to reexamine their own views and discuss them.
