Baltimore Police Report Shows Obama Jumped Gun Again On Racism Charge

Racial Politics: President Obama has a tendency to wade into local crime cases, second-guessing police decisions and making wild accusations of racism, without knowing all the facts. Baltimore is his latest faux pas.
Obama strongly suggested that Baltimore police were to blame for the death of a young black man who died while in custody.
Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old convicted drug dealer who'd been arrested 18 times previously, resisted another arrest April 12. He was so violent, he required additional restraints and a paddy wagon to take him to jail.
"Our laws were not applied evenly in the case of Mr. Gray," Obama intoned, "and accountability needs to exist."

transported in
He presumed that Gray had had "his spine snapped" while struggling with cops. But once again, it looks like the president spoke prematurely.
A police report leaked to the Washington Post shows that Gray likely caused his own injuries by banging his head against the wall of the police transport van in a tirade over his bust.
The report quotes another prisoner in the van who observed, "(He) was intentionally trying to injure himself."
A local ABC News affiliate, meanwhile, reports that the medical examiner found that Gray's fatal injury was caused when he slammed into the back of the van, apparently breaking his neck.
"A head injury he sustained matches a bolt in the back of the van," the report said.
In other words, Gray wasn't paralyzed during the confrontation with police. The president jumped to the wrong conclusion, along with civil-rights agitators.

So now that the internal investigation revealed your "story" was complete baloney, are you going to retract, or issue a statement saying you were wrong?

What baloney is that?

That the present assumed things BEFORE the facts were in ... LIKE IN FERGUSON?

That police broke his spine carrying him into the van?

That 'WE'VE' ONLY heard ONE SIDE OF THE STORY. The cops have yet to present their side.

ha ha ha ha ... NO BALONEY!
