Last week, the Baltimore Police Department, faced more public scrutiny after it was alleged that its media office fabricated threats of gang violence were made against its police officers. These supposed threats just so happened to surface and were released on April 27, the same day that Freddie Gray was laid to rest. The death of Mr. Gray, at the hands of six arresting officers, has become a contentious issue. It has even been proposed that a rough ride caused Freddie Gray’s severed spine.
Earlier today (July 3), it was reported that a picture of an inflammatory sign was taken on Tuesday, and that sign seemingly mocks the death of Freddie Gray. The Central District Police Station on Baltimore Street, was the area around which the photos which were taken. According to WBAL-TV, the back of a police van was left open and a sign read, “Enjoy your ride, cuz we sure will!”
How will the Baltimore Police Department respond to this latest development in the death of Freddie Gray?
