Remember how Obama and Holder tried to suppress the tape of Michael Brown’s violent robbery before his shooting? Here’s another problematic little revelation that just had to be covered up.
The police detectives who investigated the death of Freddie Gray were told that he had a history of participating in “crash-for-cash” schemes — injuring himself in law enforcement settings to collect settlements — but were advised by a state prosecutor not to pursue the information, according to defense attorneys for the six officers charged in Gray’s arrest and death.
The defense attorneys said in a court motion Thursday that Assistant State’s Attorney Janice Bledsoe told police investigators working the case in its early stages not to “do the defense attorneys’ jobs for them” by pursuing information they had about such schemes and evidence that Gray “intentionally injured himself at the Baltimore City Detention Center.”
Shouldn’t their job have involved determining what actually happened?
Why bother investigating reports that the poor victim had a history of deliberately injuring himself around law enforcement for profit? Let’s just pretend that the evil cops deliberately wanted to hurt him, because some of them being black, they were just that racist.
This is a ridiculous level of corruption all constructed to cover up the abuses of a Democratic administration that decided to sign off on race riots (Space to Destroy) in order to back Obama’s destructive agenda for America.
Perversely though the failure to investigate this made it inevitable that it would find its way to the defense lawyers, they are representing cops after all, where it would be used to show bad faith.
Gray, 25, died after sustaining a severe spinal cord injury in the back of a police transport van. His death in April sparked widespread protests against police brutality. On the day of his funeral, rioters clashed with police, looted businesses and burned buildings.
Questions about his injury remain. Some say he could have injured himself. Others say police might have subjected him to a “rough ride” in the back of the van. Neither theory has been proved.
Suddenly there’s an important piece of the puzzle explaining why Gray might have wanted to hurt himself.
The defense attorneys argued that her alleged statement “would seem to indicate some level of knowledge that exculpatory evidence exists which could benefit the officers charged in Mr. Gray’s death and that the prosecutor did not want this information uncovered by investigators.”
This is what justice under Obama looks like. Freeing drug dealers and locking up cops.
