Right-wing gala honors officers charged in Freddie Gray’s death with standing ovation | Mic – Borelli, who is black, seemed to gloss over the fact that the Baltimore Police Department officers — Caesar Goodson Jr., Garrett Miller, Edward Nero, William Porter, Brian Rice and Alicia White — had been accused of negligence for leaving Gray handcuffed and unbuckled in a police van, where the autopsy report showed he likely sustained fatal neck and spine injuries on April 12, 2015. A medical examiner later ruled his death a homicide. More than a year later, after three bench trial acquittals and a mistrial by jury, the Baltimore state’s attorney dropped the case altogether in July. Marilyn Mosby, the state’s prosecutor, accused police officers of interfering with her office’s investigation.
