Explosive new video shows Freddie Gray ‘shackled’ on the ground outside police van up to 30 minutes BEFORE officers called ambulance for his fatal severed spine injury
‘A new video shows Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old black man who suffered a fatal spinal injury during his arrest in Baltimore, collapsed in a heap outside a police van when officers stopped to restrain him.
Police said that they needed to stop and shackle ankles of the young man, who was arrested while screaming in pain, because he was being ‘irate’ in the back of the van.
However, the new video – shot by a witness – shows Gray hunched over on his knees and not visibly agitated during a stop that occurred in the more than 40 minutes between his arrest and officers’ call to an ambulance.
He was then taken to the hospital, where he died of a severed spine seven days later.’
