Leaked Freddie Gray autopsy report shows why Mosby wanted it to stay secret!

The Baltimore Sun threw new fuel onto the Freddie Gray case Wednesday when it published a leaked autopsy report that showed the how the Baltimore man most likely died in the back of a police van in April, sparking riots and national headlines and yet more accusations of police violence against blacks.

It sounds like a long way from second-degree murder.

The report showed Gray was placed in the van on his belly, shackled at the wrist and ankles, the Sun reported. However, he was not otherwise restrained and at some point likely managed to stand in the van, the autopsy reported. According to the autopsy, that placed him “at risk for an unsupported fall during acceleration or deceleration of the van.”

The Sun reported that the medical examiner’s office ruled the death a homicide rather than an accident because police failed to belt Gray into place for the van. The report likened the injury to one suffered by a person diving into shallow water and hitting his head on the bottom.

It was “not an unforeseen event that a vulnerable individual was injured during operation of the vehicle, and that without prompt medical attention, the injury would prove fatal,” the autopsy stated.

(Good luck to the prosecutor trying to thunder to the jury that they should find a police officer guilty of murder because “it was not an unforeseen event … that the injury would prove fatal.”)

Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, who in early June sought a court order to keep the autopsy results from the public, criticized the leak.

Defense attorneys had not yet received a copy of the report from Mosby’s office, according to the Sun.

Supporters of the charged officers — who have said from the beginning that Mosby is using the case for political gain — called the report ammunition for their side.

As John Adams said in one of the most famous defense statements ever recorded: Facts are stubborn things.

And if the Obama years have proved anything, they’ve proven that.
