Bombshell: Report Indicates Freddie Gray’s Injuries May Not Have Been What They Seemed

A bombshell report released by the Washington Post last night indicates that a fellow prisoner riding along in the same police van as Freddie Gray believed that he “was intentionally trying to injure himself.”

Gray, the excuse many violent protesters in the city of Baltimore have used to justify their actions, was found unconscious in the police van upon arrival at the station with a spinal cord injury. That injury would result in his death a week later.

Naturally, race agitators used his death as a stepping stone to claim police brutality, a claim that is shrouded in doubt based on the new report.

Watch as Fox News’ Megyn Kelly broke the story on her show last night…

Via the Washington Post:

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.

The document, written by a Baltimore police investigator, offers the first glimpse of what might have happened inside the van. It is not clear whether any additional evidence backs up the prisoner’s version, which is just one piece of a much larger probe.

It’s a stunning addition to the story of Freddie Gray’s arrest for those interested in actually learning the facts surrounding the case.

As Geraldo Rivera pointed out during coverage later on Fox News, this isn’t going to make a difference for those Baltimore protesters who are insisting the police officers be arrested for murder.

The attorney for the Gray family has already dismissed the report saying “We disagree with any implication that Freddie Gray severed his own spinal cord.”

The takeaway from this story is that rather than rioting, looting, and destroying personal property in the name of “justice,” people need to learn to let true justice run its course in every similar case. It should have been a lesson learned after Trayvon Martin, it should have been learned after Michael Brown, and again in the case of Freddie Gray.

Baltimore just might have been burning the last several days over a notorious drug dealer who injured himself.

Truth matters.

What do you think of the new bombshell report from the Washington Post? Does it add context to the case or have you already made up your mind about what happened?
