Another acquittal, and this was the guy they thought they actually could nail for murder. Problem is they have NEVER had a motive for these law enforcers to kill a convicted drug dealer. It is and always has been the administrations’ total lack of support for those who are intrusted to protect law abiding citizens and more about political opportunity. Good for the judge.
Now quit wasting taxpayers money and drop the rest of the charges against the other officers. You can’t prove anything because it didn’t happen the way you want the world to think.
From CBS Baltimore:
Officer Caesar Goodson, who was driving the police van inside which Freddie Gray incurred his fatal neck injury, has been found not guilty of second-degree “depraved heart” murder by Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Barry Williams.
Goodson, 46, has also been found not guilty on charges of manslaughter, assault, misconduct in office and reckless endangerment.
After the verdict was read, protesters began chanting “Murderer!” over and over again outside the courthouse.
Inside the courtroom, with high security present, “People were quiet … There were a few people shaking their heads, some people who were emotionless,” WJZ’s Mike Hellgren reports.
“The judge said that the evidence simply was not there, that there was no way that Officer Goodson would have known that Freddie Gray was injured until that final stop at the Western district, and that’s when a medic was called. He chided the state for using the term ‘rough ride,’ he said that it’s a highly-charged term, they failed to define it.”
Hellgren says “the prosecution’s theory of the case did not fit the facts that they had presented to the judge and he was clearly troubled by this, and I find it hard to believe that he would convict any of the officers in any of the four remaining trials to come.”
