Baltimore state's attorney drops all remaining charges against police in the death of Freddie GrayUS prosecutors on Wednesday dropped all remaining charges against police in the death of Freddie Gray, an African American whose fatal injury in custody provoked riots in Baltimore, ending the high-profile case without any convictions. The lead prosecutor defended efforts to convict six officers on charges ranging from second degree murder to reckless endangerment, but said "reluctance and obvious bias" from individual police officers had undermined the case, making it probable that the three remaining trials would end in acquittal. The decision from Baltimore's state prosecutor now makes it unlikely that anyone will be punished for what was one of the most inflammatory deaths of unarmed black men blamed on police, fueling a nationwide protest movement.
