washington - The US Department of Justice will not prosecute police officers in Baltimore for the death of Freddie Gray in April 2015, a black man arrested shortly before. The death of 25-year-old Gray caused a wave of protest and violence in Baltimore and other cities aimed at police officers.
A government inquiry into the death of Gray has not provided sufficient evidence for charges, so the Justice said. 'The Ministry of Justice will continue to investigate allegations of excessive violence by law enforcement and will continue to make sure that all allegations of violation of civil rights have been explicitly investigated,' it states in a statement.
Public prosecutors in Baltimore brought six agents to court, but none of them were convicted.
