An investigation has concluded Freddie Gray broke his neck after falling head-first into the back of the police van as it was moving, it was reported today. The news comes hours after Baltimore Police admitted the van transporting Gray made a previously unreported stop (pictured, left). The mysterious detail was picked up by a privately-owned security camera, and will be integral to the police investigation into Gray's death. Medical and law enforcement sources briefed on the police investigation told ABC News Gray's 'catastrophic' head injuries were consistent with hitting a bolt 'in the back door of the van'. They claimed there was 'no evidence' Gray sustained a fatal spine injury during his arrest, which was caught on camera on a street side on April 12. The report that Gray fell inside the van corroborates claims he was given a 'rough ride' by the van driver, who is the only officer yet to deliver a statement to the investigators. According to the sources, Gray was standing in the van, bent over with his hand cuffed behind his back and his head pointing towards the back door. It is believed he fell into the door, breaking his neck. Police Commissioner Anthony Batts (bottom right) refused to elaborate on the new information.

the far left doesn’t care, as far as they are concerned, the Bush’s are still behind this.
It was a WHITE BOLT!!
In other words, he did NOT have the benefit of riding in a CDC van with a competent driver like HUSSEIN OBAMA did in Kenya back in 2006.
FLASHBACK: KENYA 2006 - Welcome Home Senator Obama
Looks bad for the police, the paddy wagon nickle ride is famous, it started with Boston and NYPD but I thought it was eliminated years ago because of these issues.
Both Blacks and Whites have been brutally abused in the back of patty wagons for over 100 years. I don’t think this is racial, but the rioters certainly think so.
now if mike tyson was in that same van, would they blame him? worlds most dangerous man? or whitey?
“We’re all built up with progress
But sometimes I must confess
We can deal with rockets and dreams
But reality, what does it mean
Ain’t nothing said
Cause Freddie’s dead!
Id like to hear Revrunt Sharpton “sing” this just once...
Tythun a Black Man after awl!!!
now if Mike had biten Freddie’s EAR Off..that would be another thing!!
that would of been interesting if the dude walked out of the van with a missing ear. you see, whitey wont dare bite an ear off a black man, even if u offered to pay him!
I think we might want to offer THIS as a script.idea.. to S.N.L.
It may well be famous, but I would need to see proof that such a tactic was employed in this case specifically if someone asked me to hold the driver accountable in a criminal case.
What does the GPS data indicate?
Did anyone on city streets witness the van moving erratically?
Did any business security cams or other cams record any such incident?
Has the van driver been interviewed? has he given a statement? Has he submitted to a lie detector test?
Was the driver white or black?
If the Freddie Gray van driver turns out to be black...Baltimore gonna be like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HE6EP3Z0PSU

Freddie dragged his feet across the ground heading to the van. I say he is an addict/dealer. He’s been in jail many times. Maybe he was under the influence of drugs when put into the van.
Maybe he thinks that if he gets hurt, he will go to the hospital, instead of jail
If the “rough ride” killed him, it looks like manslaughter. I don’t think the police should mete out punishments. That is for courts, judges and juries.
I think this version is more likely the truth. If anyone’s to be blamed its the driver or the design interior
People need to emphasize that this happened in a Rat-Run town, no conservatives to blame for this one.
Was the driver white or black?
or was it a space alien? maybe james carville?
“Kamikaze from the cargo floor
Swan dive to the seat.
He couldn’t handle the lockup no more,
He craved that sweet release.....”
And the answer is?
It argues that Gray fell and hit his head on an exposed bolt in the police van.
It looks like the failure of the police to strap him down is what they are mostly likely guilty of.
But of course, had they strapped him down, it would have been racist and abusive as well.
