The recent death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore from injuries sustained while in police custody can not be ignored. According to Marilyn Mosby, Baltimore City State’s Attorney, police “failed to establish probable cause for Mr. Gray’s arrest, as no crime had been committed [by Gray].” She went on to describe even the arrest itself as illegal.

While police did check on Gray, who was not buckled into a seat in a police wagon, they did not respond to his requests for medical help. He was eventually discovered to be in cardiac arrest and died a week later of spinal injuries.
