Reporter Doubts Report Freddie Gray Injured Himself.
Hello dear reader(s)!
Anyone who knows me knows that I am not a fan of the mainstream media. So when I started to hear reports that a prisoner (according to the Baltimore PD) states that Freddie Gray was trying to injure himself, I was immediately skeptical. We all know that many times, inmates are offered deals in exchange for stories about issues, and I thought this was likely one of them. There is just no way I believe that a man who was handcuffed and in leg irons could injure himself in a van enough to crush his larynx and sever 80% of his spinal cord. I frankly think it is physically impossible.
Sure enough. the link to the story above likely confirms my suspicions. It seems the Baltimore PD is trying whatever they can to try to shift the blame from their department. Earlier reports state that Freddie Gray was already unresponsive by the time this prisoner was loaded into the van. It also goes on to say that the prisoner would have been separated by a partition and so would not have been able to see Freddie Gray during the ride. Finally, police admit that Mr. Gray was not in a seat belt during the ride, explaining the possible sounds against the walls of the van if corners were taken or turns made with a rolling unconscious body on the floor.
This is one of the worst attempts at a cover-up I have been subjected to, and is being spread by mainstream media television news outlets as the gospel truth. The only investigative journalism left in this country is in the print media (sometimes) and the internet.
The most disturbing part of the article? That the report the Baltimore Police will make investigating their own officers, will not be released to the public. It will go to the state police, under the governor. The same governor who was quick to declare martial law and falsely imprison an entire city after dark based on the actions of a few.
This police department, city, and state are trampling the rights of Americans. They are violating the Constitution and punishing people without due process. They illegally detained people for days without charge, and a Habeas Corpus petition had to be filed by the Baltimore Public Defender in order to secure their release 179 so far without charge, held for days.
This is your country America. This is your world, humanity. Imagine if some people in your city rioted and you were subjected to house arrest at night for something you weren’t even involved in. You can’t go to your late night job. You’re not going to earn your living because there is a curfew. The already drained economy of the city is being hurt further by business that would usually be open late at night that can’t open. No nightclubs. No convenience stores. No all night diners. The low-wage workers who hold those jobs now can’t go to work, can’t earn a living, and are only going to sink deeper into the systematic poverty already plaguing the city, and the nation.
Right now it is in Baltimore. But how long until it is your city? Not long, if you listen to the narrative being trotted out by CNN and Fox News.
Conservatives in Texas are worried about a military training operation in their state, because they fear an invasion of Texas by the US military. Meanwhile they are just fine with letting an entire US city suffer under the rule of martial law and house arrest without any due process.
All it takes is someone to declare a state of emergency for whatever protections you still believed you had to be stomped upon openly.
Turn off CNN. Turn off Fox News. Seek the truth and spread it. Read the linked article that simply states the inconsistencies and facts and how it conflicts with the narrative that Mr. Gray somehow injured himself so severely. Read about how he was denied proper medical treatment.
Then challenge the lies you hear. Spread the truth. Change the narrative. Demand change.
If you don’t stand up for others when their rights are being trampled, who will stand up for you when it’s your rights they trample?
Police in the UK have killed 52 people in the past 115 years.
Police in the US have killed 369 people in the past 115 days.
If you chalk it up to the differences in gun laws then how do you explain how so many killed by police were unarmed?
For those of you willing to paint an entire city with a broad brush due to some property destruction, I ask you this:
Why wasn’t martial law declared and a curfew put in place after the Giants fans rioted?
Why wasn’t martial law declared and a curfew put in place after Joe Paterno was fired and there were riots?
Why wasn’t martial law declared and a curfew put in place after Kentucky lost and their fans rioted?
Why wasn’t martial law declared and a curfew put in place after the riots at a pumpkin festival?
Why wasn’t martial law declared and a curfew put in place after the nation’s largest financial institutions fraudulently pushed and approved sub-prime mortgages, resulting in the largest loss of property in the nation’s history?
Where was your outrage over those “thugs” then?
The world is watching. What are you prepared to do?
