    Freddie Gray's family settles with city for $6.4M

    http://news.yahoo.com/freddie-grays-...145735914.html

    The parents of Freddie Gray reached a tentative $6.4 million settlement with the city of Baltimore, nearly five months after their 25-year-old son was critically injured in police custody, sparking days of protests and rioting.
    Thats the equivalent of hitting a $10K 8-teamer.

    I bet they are broke within a year though.

    He was the only one that was actually a victim out of all the protests this year in
    America.
    Freddie Gray was a victim, Michael Brown was not.

    Good for them ...could be a be a nice building block for future generations I'd imagine a family could live off the interest alone so going broke let alone in a year is unlikely maybe I'll reach out 100k of that invested in say a cannabis op would show them a decent return I'd say but they probably won't want to hear that 40k a run is chump change to them now right ...they hit the lottery under sad circumstances.

    He hurt himself. He tried doing it before. Guy in the back said he was trying to hurt himself as well. All those cops will be found not guilty.

    I haven't looked into this case but are you saying he killed himself?

    Once the attorneys and the tax man are done...the remaining $$ will be blown on house cars and drugs...they'll be broke or dead from a robbery within 3 years.

    Now they can use that money to clean up the mess the people made or pay those people some money for being involved in a "protest".

    The other man that was in the vehicle said he could hear Freddie thrashing around in the back of vehicle that would point towards him doing it on his own accord and not from the movement of the vehicle.

    Autopsy of Freddie Gray shows 'high-energy' impact

    Slammed in the van;

    Freddie Gray suffered a single "high-energy injury" — like those seen in shallow-water diving incidents — most likely caused when the police van in which he was riding suddenly decelerated, according to a copy of the autopsy report obtained by The Baltimore Sun.




    The state medical examiner's office concluded that Gray's death could not be ruled an accident, and was instead a homicide, because officers failed to follow safety procedures "through acts of omission."

    Though Gray was loaded into the van on his belly, the medical examiner surmised that he may have gotten to his feet and was thrown into the wall during an abrupt change in direction. He was not belted in, but his wrists and ankles were shackled, making him "at risk for an unsupported fall during acceleration or deceleration of the van."

    Anyone who thinks this scumbag was a victim is an idiot.

    He was a multiple time convicted felon, with arrests ranging from drug dealing to assault. He was arrested that day for dealing heroin.

    Here's a free tip....don't be a scumbag criminal, and you won't die in police custody!!

    More and more of these people will be having children after seeing this, thinking "hey I can make it out the ghetto without working 2 different ways now, pop out 10 children and stats show that 1 of them will be a pro athlete or pop out 10 children and 4 will get shot and maybe we can get lucky and 1 will be by a cop"

    Just promoting more children that you can't afford. Great idea tossing them millions, they already got to riot and steal shit without any problems, now they get millions, the family has received enough freebies.

    Eric Garner got $5.9 million dollars because he was taken down and said he couldnt breathe and died.

    You don't hear about the white guy that went into the police station saying his wife was trying to kill him, and he was taken and down while saying he couldnt breathe and he died. How much did this white guy family get you ask? $0
