Freddie Gray case | State vs Officer Caesar Goodson | Day 7

caesar goodson-trial 17Tensions between police and prosecutors erupted in a downtown courtroom Thursday, with a top prosecutor accusing a lead detective of trying to sabotage the state’s case against six Baltimore officers in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray.

Chief Deputy State’s Attorney Michael Schatzow also suggested that top police officials tried to persuade the doctor who performed Gray’s autopsy to rule his death an accident rather than a homicide.

Detective Dawnyell Taylor, lead detective in the police investigation of Gray’s death, denied the claims and in turn suggested that Deputy State’s Attorney Janice Bledsoe lacked integrity and was dismissive of evidence in the case.

The clashes came during an explosive sixth day of testimony in the second-degree murder trial of Officer Caesar Goodson Jr., the driver of the van in which Gray suffered fatal spinal injuries last year.

The day began with Circuit Judge Barry G. Williams denying a defense motion to dismiss the charges following the conclusion of the prosecution’s case Wednesday, but only after expressing “concern” about the merits of the murder charge. The day ended with testimony from Donta Allen, the second arrestee placed in the van with Gray, who sparred with defense attorneys over what he’d heard during that trip.

      Why can’t these cops buy themselves a decent suit? Looks like what he might have worn to his senior prom given how it fits him.
