Rep. Jeffries Hails Baltimore Cop Charges As ‘Step’ In Right Direction


Rep. Jeffries

U.S. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries Released the following statement today:

“The gruesome death of Freddie Gray should shock the conscience of people throughout the country.  His severely severed spine signifies the cruel and unusual punishment he suffered in police custody while shackled and detained.  Such brutality should not happen in America.  The events of the last few months have caused the crisis of police violence to burst into public view like a malignant tumor we can no longer ignore.  In order to heal, the community needs justice to prevail.  The charges levied against six Baltimore City police officers in the death of Freddie Gray represent an important first step in that direction.”
