    No, that does not say the Officer's have any such responsibility.
    Again, it takes a dumb brutality to legitimately believe witholding medical care for a person in your custody does not constitute cruel and unusual punishment, or that allowing a person in custody to die without offering aid doesn't violate a person's right to due process.

    Do you believe cops can let prisoners die if they think they deserve it?

    I have to conclude you are either being stubborn for an argumentative purpose, or are legitimately damaged as a person. Neither explanation, however, excuses such a bad argument

    Holy ****!
    Your whole brutally dumb positions are based on assumptions.
    For all you know they thought he was faking injury. Which is what many criminals do. Or do you not know that?
    Besides that, the lack of a seatbelt may not have contributed to his injury at all. So stop assuming, when it is an absurd thing to do.

    As for withholding? Bs! Transferring him to a place he would receive aid is not withholding and is just another absurd assumption on your part.
    Prove they knew he needed immediate aid. You are just making absurd arguments. The Mayor saying it was wrong, has no relevance or authority.

    Uh oh. The report coming out is saying that a witness inside the van is claiming that Gray was intentionally trying to hurt himself

    Yeah, won't matter to the police detractors. They'll simply say it's a cover up.

    So Gray hurt himself and Brown's hands weren't up, but screw that. Carry on with the BS narratives anyway, right libbies?

    *UPDATED* – Did Freddie Gray Have Spinal Surgery (From Prior Car Accident) A Week Before His Arrest?… | The Last Refuge

    Read this article, it explains the car accident case by stating it was not actually a car accident that he filled suit for, but for possible lead paint poisoning which occurred for several years due to lead based paint. This occurred while he was a developing teen. If you look at the effects of lead poisoning, one of the possible effects of long term exposure is that it effects bone development and in some cases can lead to Osteoporosis. If he had weakened bones due to lead exposure, it is more then possible that the struggle during his arrest may have caused the fatal injury, which then was made worse by moving his neck all over the place. If he had to be taserd when he was arrested, then he was resisting. The video only shows the arrest, and not what occurred prior, but based on the witnesses, he was taserd. If you look at his arrest record, he also does have an arrest for assault, so he was not only a drug dealer, but a potentially violent drug dealer. Which leads me to believe there is evidence that he resisted arrest, and based on a previous medical condition, was fatally injured during his arrest.

    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    Not at all. It should protect the police...otherwise it's easy to just use the excuse that there was favoritism or corruption.

    If you truly want your innocence verified, then it's certainly more credible from independent sources.

    I do understand however, not trusting that even such independent sources may not be impartial or have an agenda.
