Prisoner in van said Freddie Gray was ‘trying to injure himself,’ document says

BALTIMORE — A prisoner sharing a police transport van with Freddie Gray told investigators that he could hear Gray “banging against the walls” of the vehicle and believed that he “was intentionally trying to injure himself,” according to a police document obtained by The Washington Post.

The prisoner, who is currently in jail, was separated from Gray by a metal partition and could not see him. His statement is contained in an application for a search warrant, which is sealed by the court. The Post was given the document under the condition that the prisoner not be named because the person who provided it feared for the inmate’s safety.

    At this point, I don’t feel I can trust anything either side says. Baltimore should go the way of Detroit.

      Why was the piece of human garbage even out of prison? We obviously don’t even have a justice system anymore, I notice it is all pretty well aligned with the with the oblowme’s terms.

      What a tragedy ! This is so sad! No doubt he was about to turn his life around. No doubt he had a promising future ahead as an up and coming rapper. If not for WHITE racism! he probably would have been a brain surgeon (sarcasm OFF)

      He dindu nuffing!

      People take drugs. He supplied them. Cops, Judges, Lawyers, Jailers, Politicians get rich off playing the game…pretend their hands are clean, and that they’re DOING something. Cops beating on citizens’ heads is because they have no imagination to try something different…Heaven FORBID someone walking around with a chemical smile on their face…nope, can’t have that.

    Since when did facts mean anything to Obama and Hillary, they have their race-wars projects to add to the war on women and gay rights issues for the 2016 election .
    Obama used these idiots in 2012 to riot and cause mayhem to win the black votes and blame this mess on the rep.’s .
    But the rent-a-mob thugs didn’t stop after the election and are fatherless thugs raised in the Liberalism of welfare to be wards of the State and career victims that have the right to riot and loot stores.

    Gee, why is it that they riot from no jobs and yet never Loot a store that has Work Clothes to get the good jobs in labour . Obama should be just as outraged over the near 900 murders in Det and Chi combined to mostly Blacks and almost all by hand guns. But no ……. he’s obsessed with 15,000,000 illegals he wants to give amnesty to and gays having Pizza after their wedding and Black thugs like Michael brown that beat-up an Immigrant store clerk and caused his own death later on .
