Baltimore police van driver Caesar Goodson not guilty on all 21 administrative charges in Freddie Gr

Source: Baltimore Sun

Baltimore Police Officer Caesar Goodson Jr. was found not guilty Tuesday of all 21 administrative charges against him in the 2015 arrest and death of Freddie Gray.

The verdict absolves Goodson once and for all in the high-profile case, and allows him to continue his career in the city police force.

Goodson, 48, the driver of the police van in which Gray was found with severe and ultimately fatal spinal cord injuries in April 2015, had faced possible termination if any of the charges against him was sustained. He was charged with neglecting his duty by failing to ensure Gray’s safety, including by not securing a handcuffed and shackled Gray in a seat belt and not calling a medic for Gray after he requested one. He was also charged with making false statements to investigators.

The decision clearing him of all charges was unanimous among the three law enforcement officials who presided over the six-day administrative trial, and follows his acquittal on all criminal charges, including second-degree depraved-heart murder, at a separate trial last year.

4. And LOEs are here in Philly are wringing their hands over today's D.A. race here

where if all goes well, we will have a Civil Rights lawyer and Public Defender as a D.A. who vows to bring about some changes. Of course our previous D.A. just got frog-marched to jail 2 weeks ago.

6. "unanimous among the three law enforcement officials"3? WTF- how corrupt the 'police' have become.

No wonder so many people HATE/FEAR the police today, afraid to even call the police in so many areas of America.

10. Well lucky for him he avoided possibly losing his job.

That would have been such a tragedy. He's free to give more people the rough ride.

Huzzah.
