    The medical examiner ruled it was homicide.

    Also, there are charges of negligent homicide, abuse of authority, etc.

    It was an unlawful arrest, they claim, and their negligence concerning his safety when riding in the police van resulted in his death. They didn't put him in a seat belt, and he apparently fell in the van and broke his neck.

    The charges seem appropriate.
    This one is just idiotic, the moron stood up in the back of the van and fell and broke his own neck and it's the police's responsibility for this mans own stupidity? Give me a break.

    Murder 2 does.

    And if they've decided on trying to pin involuntary manslaughter then they was no " Police brutality " in the sense that they literally beat him to death.

    Do you think this was an isolated incident?

    I was initially shock upon this announcement, since it so rare for the police to be held criminally accountable.
    You don't get out much, I take it. Many police have been charged and convicted for crimes committed while on duty.

    Most of the time when a cop shoots someone it's justified. And it's hard to prove that it's not justified unless there's a video of it or something like that. But it's simply not the case that cops always skate.

    No. Another cop was charged with murder just recently. About 9 cops a year are convicted of murder or manslaughter. That's out of about 388 suspects a year shot and killed (most of whom were white, by the way). link

    No, but neither was it a common one.
    “In America we have a two-party system,” a Republican congressional staffer told a visiting group of Russian legislators. “There is the stupid party. And there is the evil party. I am proud to be a member of the stupid party. Periodically, the two parties get together and do something that is both stupid and evil. This is called: bipartisanship."

    Inb4 at least one of these officers get convicted and some people claim, "They were just convicted to appease the black citizens."

    And anyone who would say something like that is ignorant beyond words. Your ears, not your mouth, are your best tools for understanding a situation like this.

    Yeah, the rule was the prisoner has to be buckled in. Baltimore had a similar case with a guy who did the same thing in a police van. He sued and won a bunch of money from the city. The cops knew better, and because they were (allegedly) negligent the prisoner died. Ipso facto, negligent homicide, although I'm not sure where the prosecutor is getting 2nd degree murder. To charge murder the prosecutor is saying that the police intended to kill Gray. I don't think they'll be able to prove that. The police were indifferent, maybe, but intending to kill? Don't think so.
