Freddie Gray alive and well, Freddie Gray under arrest, Freddie Gray in coma
On April 12, Freddie Gray, healthy and whole, was arrested by the Baltimore Police.
According to his family and attorney Billy Murphy, when Freddie arrived at the hospital he had three broken vertebrae, his spinal cord was severed 80 percent, his voice box damaged, and his brain was swollen.
He died a week later.
The police thus far have refused to give any reasonable explanation of how Gray went from healthy to dead in their custody.
New incident reports that were just released state that Gray "was arrested without force or incident" and that he "suffered a medical emergency" in the back of the police van after his arrest.
Here's the thing: spines don't sever themselves.
The video below, taken by a bystander as Gray was arrested, appears to show him with a severe leg injury. While this is speculative, it appears that legs may not have even been functioning because of a spinal injury at this moment.
Whatever the case, the police report is grossly inaccurate. Either Gray suffered those catastrophic injuries during his arrest or he suffered them in the van.
We need answers.
