Baltimore police arrests serve justice
Letter to the editor

Editor, I, along with many other Americans, breathed a sigh of relief at the news that the six officers involved in the Freddie Gray case in Baltimore will face multiple charges. The death has been ruled a homicide. This is a great day for the cause of justice in our country.
I believe that the president was correct in suggesting that as a nation, we need to do some serious soul-searching. This case begs the question of why so many on the right (Sean Hannity, et al) were so willing to take the word of a felon that Mr. Gray’s multiple wounds were self-inflicted. The evidence seems to also suggest that there was no probable cause for Mr. Gray’s arrest — he had committed no crime!
Having a black president does not prove that we are living in a post-racial era as some would prefer to believe. We have a lot of work to do in the area of race relations in our country.
