The Freddie Gray story looks like the latest incident in a long line of race hoaxes:
“An investigation has concluded Freddie Gray broke his neck after falling head-first into the back of the police van as it was moving, it was reported today.
Medical and law enforcement sources briefed on the police investigation told ABC News Gray’s ‘catastrophic’ head injuries were consistent with hitting a bolt ‘in the back door of the van’.
They claimed there was ‘no evidence’ Gray sustained a fatal spine injury during his arrest, which was caught on camera on a street side on April 12.
According to ABC’s sources, Gray was standing in the van, bent over with his hand cuffed behind his back and his head pointing towards the back door.
It is believed he fell into the door, breaking his neck.” …
It sounds like he was acting crazy in the back of the police van and accidentally killed himself:
“BALTIMORE — A prisoner sharing a police transport van with Freddie Gray told investigators that he could hear Gray “banging against the walls” of the vehicle and believed that he “was intentionally trying to injure himself,” according to a police document obtained by The Washington Post.
The prisoner, who is currently in jail, was separated from Gray by a metal partition and could not see him. His statement is contained in an application for a search warrant, which is sealed by the court. The Post was given the document under the condition that the prisoner not be named because the person who provided it feared for the inmate’s safety. …”
