    6 Officers Indicted In Freddie Gray’s Death

    Never heard of "depraved-heart" murder before.

    6 Officers Indicted In Freddie Gray’s Death « CBS Baltimore

    City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby said a grand jury has indicted all six officers in the the Freddie Gray’s death. Six officers were charged on May 1, following the death of Freddie Gray–Mosby calling the arrest illegal. She also announced that reckless endangerment was added to the charges against the officers and the charges of false imprisonment was removed. Mosby announced the charges, which range from second-degree misdemeanor assault to “depraved-heart” murder, in a lengthy news conference one day after receiving an investigative report from police. The May 1 announcement came after more than a week of protests that on two occasions gave way to rioting, prompting Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake to implement a curfew and Republican Gov. Larry Hogan to declare a state of emergency for the city.

    I have.

    My understanding of the term is that it applies to causing the death of another, not necessarily out of specific intent to cause death, but out of extreme disregard for human life and for the likelihood that one's actions may result in death. It applies to an action that one takes, knowing and not caring that it has a very high likelihood of causing death—if such an action then actually results in a death, that death is a depraved-heart murder.

    Yes, I agree with that definition. I'm also glad to see these officers so charged.

    OK so now there doesn't need to be any more protests. The perpetrators have been caught and charged.

    Pretty much. They're screwed for life no matter how much time they get (and they'll most likely get locked up for a damn long time )

    More than anything, we can hope it sends a message where it needs to.

    I dunno if you are patrolling the comments on news feeds about this the average american is pissed off at the prosecution and thinks Gray was a scumbag that deserved it, and they feel sympathy for the cops. Americans have gone pretty mild blooded and retarded.

    They dont realize that once we condone this sort systemic behavoir to the worst of society then those with the authority might find excuses and stories to use it on the best.
