A third trial for a Baltimore police officer for their role in the death of Freddie Gray still hasn’t returned a conviction, with Officer Caesar Goodson being acquitted of all charges on Thursday.
Prosecutors had charged that Goodson, who drove the van in which Gray suffered his fatal spinal cord injury, purposefully gave Gray a “rough ride,” ultimately leading to his death.
He faced the most serious charges of the six officers indicted in Gray’s death—second-degree depraved-heart murder—as well as charges of three counts of manslaughter, assault, reckless endangerment, and misconduct in office.
As Common Dreams previously reported,
Not putting a seatbelt on Gray “is not what a reasonable officer would do,” prosecutor Janice Bledsoe said in closing arguments. She added that “repeatedly failing to get medical care” goes to the “depraved heart” murder charge.
