2nd Freddie Gray Cop Cleared


Recommended Posts

No surprise. 


Back in May it was decided in the City of Baltimore that the officers involved in the Freddie Gray incident were going to be facing disciplinary trial boards, despite having been cleared of wrongdoing in the courts. That process began playing out last month and the second officer to face the music was the supervisor in charge at the scene, Lt. Brian Rice. Much as with the result of efforts at previous trials in a court of law, Rice walked out with no finding against him and returned to his job. (Baltimore Sun)


When the verdict of “not guilty” came, Baltimore Police Lt. Brian Rice shook hands with his attorney, hugged his parents and drove a mile to police headquarters to get his job back.


The lieutenant was reinstated Friday, shortly after his acquittal on administrative charges that he had neglected police procedures during the arrest of Freddie Gray. The verdict absolves Rice once and for all.


“He simply wants to go home, hug his kids, kiss his wife, have a good holiday and really, honestly, try to get on with his life,” said his attorney, Michael Davey.


The ruling by a three-member panel of police officers comes more than two years after Gray was severely injured in the back of a police van. Rice supervised Gray’s arrest and was cleared last year of criminal charges including manslaughter.
