Freddie Gray Had a Long Rap Sheet

Scott Greer, Daily Caller, April 28, 2015

Freddie Gray, the deceased man at the center of the unrest in Baltimore, had numerous run-ins with the law prior to his fatal detainment in April–with offenses ranging from felony drug possession to assault.

The 25-year-old’s criminal history starts in July 2007 with an arrest for “possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute” and “unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance.” A month later, he was charged with three separate counts of drug possession, a count of violating probation, and making a “false statement to a peace officer.” posted Gray’s complete rap sheet on Monday and it includes over several charges–primarily for offenses relating to drug distribution.

March 20, 2015: Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance
March 13, 2015: Malicious destruction of property, second-degree assault
January 20, 2015: Fourth-degree burglary, trespassing
January 14, 2015: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute
December 31, 2014: Possession of narcotics with intent to distribute
December 14, 2014: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance
August 31, 2014: Illegal gambling, trespassing
January 25, 2014: Possession of marijuana
September 28, 2013: Distribution of narcotics, unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance, second-degree assault, second-degree escape
April 13, 2012: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute, unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance, violation of probation
July 16, 2008: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession with intent to distribute
March 28, 2008: Unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance
March 14, 2008: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to manufacture and distribute
February 11, 2008: Unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession of a controlled dangerous substance
August 29, 2007: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute, violation of probation
August 28, 2007: Possession of marijuana
August 23, 2007: False statement to a peace officer, unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance
July 16, 2007: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute, unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance (2 counts)

The Washington Post reported on Friday that Gray had a lengthy criminal history and even had a two-year stint in prison. According to The Post, his charges were primarily for selling heroin and marijuana. However, only a few of the counts he was charged with resulted in convictions.

Before he died, Gray had two pending drug charges against him–one of which was a felony count for dealing heroin. {snip}

  • Blacks and their white/”white” allies like to complain about how blacks get long prison sentences for piddly crimes. This one’s arrest sheet was so long, presuming that he actually committed the crimes that he was arrested for each time, that he should already have been in prison doing hard time.

    In reality, judicial circuits in Bell Curve City are notoriously lenient.

    • phorning

      It is part of the push for drug legalization/decriminalization. The liberal point of view is that if most of these incidents were no longer crimes, Freddie Gray would have become a good citizen. Considering he never held a job, I don’t know how they make these arguments with a straight face. The City of Baltimore is worse off because Freddie Gray lived there.

      • a1781054

        I’m not particularly concerned about drug crimes, but things like violence and trespassing are not something I gloss over. It appears to me this latest “victim of oppression” was no angel.

      • Screamin_Ruffed_Grouse

        If these incidents were no longer crimes, intelligent legitimate entrepreneurs would move in and blacks like Gray would be pushed out.

        • Earl P. Holt III

          I kind of like them where they are, now: Consolidated and in clearly recognizable “Indian Territory,” which can be circumnavigated…

      • ghettovalley

        You can tell a lot about the black community by the dirtbags they choose to idolize. If some white guy with a huge criminal record for peddling meth and snatching purses got shot while trying to attack a cop, white people certainly wouldn’t take to the streets, loot the local CVS, and burn down a hardware store. It’s ridiculous that even after hundreds of years they still aren’t any more civilized than when they left the dark continent in chains. Perhaps they should be returned.

        • InAFreeCountry

          When White folks get shot by the police, we usually figure they were asking for it.

        • Earl P. Holt III

          We’d volunteer to “pull the switch”…

        • JohnEngelman

          Laughing out loud.

        • ElComadreja

          No “perhaps” about it.

      • Uncle_Dan

        ” he never held a job” — he was a drug peddler.

      • Reverend Bacon

        Whenever I hear “decriminalize” drugs, I think
        “decriminalize thugs.” Until drugs are LEGAL (as opposed to “decriminalized”), like alcohol and
        cigarettes, you’ll have the gangs controlling them. I should be able to run to
        Walgreen’s, buy a gallon of milk, a pint of ice cream, a dime bag of heroin and
        some PCP. When that happens, the gangs won’t get rich off drugs; and until it
        does, they will still shoot each other over turf. All those non-violent
        offenders you’ve been told about all these years don’t really exist. They are
        violent offenders who have been jailed for non-violent crimes, generally as
        part of a plea bargain to avoid charging a violent felony. When you can buy
        drugs at the Walgreen’s, there won’t be much need for such coddling of these
        thugs, because the prisons won’t be as full. Not because of what you say, but
        because some would-be thugs won’t see the profit in thugging, and will find
        gainful legal employment.

        Freddie Gray’s profession was clearly dealing drugs. That’s how he made most of his money. Al Capone made lots of money dealing in booze during prohibition. A non-violent crime, say some. We all know he was a violent man. And this guy’s rap sheet proves he was violent, too: there was an assault and a destruction of property. I’d bet that he, like anyone who plies the drug trade, had done his share of violence to protect his turf.

        • InAFreeCountry

          There will be plenty of profit in thugging, just not in dealing drugs. Robbing and stealing could increase.

          • ElComadreja

            Pimping is always a good option.

        • ghettovalley

          I agree with your views on drug legalization. I could care less if Shatavius Jenkins decides to smoke crack in an alley until he’s dead. And full legalization would drive down the prices of all drugs, lowering the amount of property crime associated with their use. It would free up the police to deal with real crimes, rape, murder, ect. The proceeds of drug dealing would then be tax dollars, and could be used to fix our horrible roads or buy textbooks for school children or any other number of users rather than putting gold toilets and sinks into the palatial mansions of South American cartel bosses. If heroin and crack became legal today, would any of you go out and try it? Me either. The only people that would die off are people that we’d be better off without anyway.

          • carriewhite64

            There is too much money in the Drug War game for this to happen.

          • ElComadreja

            The proverbial vested interest in maintaining the status quo.

          • ElComadreja

            I’m with you.

      • carriewhite64

        Yes, because if Gray had no connection to the drug trade he would be a model citizen.

      • ElComadreja

        I don’t care about his drug crimes. His assault charges are the red flags. A future rape/murder was prevented. Who knows? One may have already occurred.

    • propagandaoftruth

      The city is run by blacks. The police force is half black, run by a black. Over half the city council is black, the fire chief black.

      So what in the name of all that’s holy do White people have to do with this idiocy?

      “Black lives matter!” They are like a race of spoiled, suicidal, adolescents expecting some adult will pay them attention and then pay their bills. Riot and rot, blacks.

      • Samuel Hathaway

        The bill will never be settled up, never. Continued rioting and pillaging is the blacks guarantee that the gravy train of bleeding the taxpayers dry will never end.

        Got my small does of FOX for the evening, courtesy of Reconquistador Geraldo. He says this wound in Baltimore may never heal. Which means the white taxpayers are to forever pour gobs of taxpayer $$$ into rebuilding Baltimore, job-training programs, child care centers, government run clinics, and everything else that forever requires Baltimore blacks to be taken care of.

        • propagandaoftruth

          What part of the concentration camp known as the USSA do you hail from, brother? I’ve always enjoyed your commentary.

          • Samuel Hathaway

            From, Atlanta, originally, but I try not to admit to that anymore. Now, I just say I live in North Georgia, about half-way between the Alabama and South Carolina state lines.

          • propagandaoftruth

            When my pops got a job with the corps of engineers he got to putter around Lake Altoona in a fancy speed boat. In Cumming in those days (60’s) blacks were not allowed in the county and my southern belle momster was mildly surprised when some neighbors expressed concern that some of the movers had been black, lol.
            Jr Samples was living there, before Hee Haw discovered him, and according to mom, he was exactly like he was in the show.
            At one point the sheriff was blown up in his squad car by the main bootlegger and the attic of my parent’s house was infested with possums. There was a 2 AM train that ran nearby, which may have had something to do with my birth to a 50 year old father and a 43 year old mom.
            That said, I was not even two when we moved back to SC.
            Or was it Lake Lanier?

          • Samuel Hathaway

            Yes, Lake Lanier is mostly in Hall County, where Gainesville is. Junior Samples of Hee Haw fame is from Buford, GA in Gwinnett County (which is my county) about 23 miles south of Gainesville down I-985, while Cumming is in Forsyth County about another 20 miles to the NW of Buford and on the other side of Lake Lanier from Gainesville.

            A 50 year old dad and a 43 year old mom? They delayed your arrival, but they sure got to stork to bring AR a good one!

        • Uncle_Dan

          In other words, involuntary servitude.

          • Samuel Hathaway

            Tax slavery, as they say.

      • model1911

        “……expecting some adult will pay them attention and then pay their bills…..” Sadly, their expectations are being met.

    • Earl P. Holt III

      He’d be 104 years-old…!

    • Who Me?

      Jails and prisons are already overcrowded. They can only put away the worst ones, so naturally a lot of them keep slipping through the cracks, Also the judge only sees what the prosecutor thinks he can prove, so a lot of the charges are never brought to his attention.

    • ElComadreja

      If you were white with a rap sheet like that you’d be doing long hard time.

  • MekongDelta69

    Name me one of these black thugs in the last fifty years who didn’t have a previous rap sheet.

    • Jason Lewis


    • Peters

      By definition a first time offender, conducting a thuggish act, does not have a previous rap sheet.

      • Greek

        I don’t think he means to count children.

      • ElComadreja

        They come out of the womb with criminal inclinations.

    • Sorry, I’m drawing a blank.

      I find it is harder than landing on the moon.

  • JohnEngelman

    Yes, but he was turning his life around. He had not assaulted anyone for over a month.

  • Whitetrashgang

    Its can a black person not attack someone or not run from the police just this once?Instead of human Cops why not Tigers or Lions like in the good old days.This is why Trayvon etc are such animals, because this is what they went up against every day.

    • AFlaVet

      Nah..Hoses and dogs….they all need baths.

  • Voice of Reason

    A 2015 Superfly, that Freddie.

  • GeneticsareDestiny

    -August 29, 2007: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute, violation of probation
    -August 28, 2007: Possession of marijuana

    Notice that he got arrested and charged with another crime a single day after his previous arrest. He couldn’t even stay out of trouble for one day.

    I wonder how he managed to not get arrested at all during 2009-2011, though. I doubt he stopped committing crimes. Did he just get really lucky and manage to avoid the cops for a few years?

    • He did do a short stint in prison, two years; that might have been it.

      • GeneticsareDestiny

        Ah yes, that’s probably it.

      • carriewhite64

        Or he may have moved in with a baby momma who supported him on her benefits for a couple of years.

    • John Smith

      I wonder what his juvie record is like?

    • Yancy Derringer

      He did two years in prison.

  • superlloyd

    Blacks never learn or reform their nefarious ways. These abilities are beyond them for many genetically influenced reasons. Moreover, they are actively encouraged to remain the same, stupid class of criminal lowlifes by their cultural marxist handlers.

    • ElComadreja

      To be fair it doesn’t take a lot of encouragement.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Looking at his arrest record, I assume Freddie Gray is black?

    • AFlaVet

      Yup..and an undocumented pharmacist too. Maybe since the CVS they burned down will be replaced by more Freddies?

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        NO Toilet paper No Peace!!

        • Samuel Hathaway

          Lot’s of, ur, uh, cleaning up to do.

          • John Smith

            Watermelon can give you the runs.

            So can fried chicken, the grease.

          • NoMosqueHere

            That should last him about a week.

            Food stamps don’t cover paper products.

          Throw in some wheelbarrows of Heineken and large screen TVs and maybe we’ll get some then.

    Freddie Gray Had a Long Rap Sheet
    I can’t wait to see his kindergarten graduation picture.

      From the “rise up” ceremony!

    • junkbondtrader41

      Amazed that hasn’t been the photo the media has run in every story, aren’t you?

    • Speedy Steve

      Kindergarten mug shot.

  • 18 arrests . . . how many arrests does it take to stay locked up forever?
    I don’t know – but I imagine no one in Japan is arrested 18 times and is allowed to repeatedly break the law.

    Really disgusting.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      I imagine no on WHITE is arrested 18 times and allowed to repeatedly break the law.

    • dukem1


      • Dave West

        Well St. I Can’t Breath had about 30 prior arrests.

  • Clearly, he is the victim of white oppression. After all, one cannot have such a long arrest record and not be oppressed. Well, there are exceptions, such as white people.

    I don’t see a double standard anywhere.

  • Puggg

    Lots and lots of arrests but so little prison time. To me it adds up to informant.

  • dd121

    He din do nuffin.

  • junkbondtrader41

    “Blaming the victim! !”

  • John Smith

    He would’ve cured cancer and perfected cold fusion if only he had lived….

    • Michigan Patriot

      You beat me to this observation about Freddie; Newman ! His anti-cancer drug would be produced by his new drug company and they will hire White unemployed people ; by affirmative action if needed.

  • Michigan Patriot

    With this non-violent ” rap ” sheet; his criminal record is not so bad. He should have been honored by the NAACP & Baltimore black city officials as a ” role model ” for other black youths. With black self-inflicted societal failures running amok for a long, long time; Freddie Gray by contrast , looks like a ” saint ” !

  • De Doc

    Shocker! A young Black male has previous and lengthy criminal history.

    • InAFreeCountry

      A shocker indeed.

  • InAFreeCountry

    There is a big gap between mid-2008 to April, 2012. I wonder if he was incarcerated or out of town?

  • InAFreeCountry

    So I now hear that we are no longer supposed to call black miscreants “thugs”, a perfectly race-neutral word that comes from India. Baltimore’s Mayor Rawlings-Wilson has even backpedaled on using the term.
    Since we cannot call a spade a spade, I propose we go to the other black suit in the deck, the club. The club is an instrument of violence, and some folks here also have theories as to who wields the club. “Those clubs on the street be playin’ the knockout game” has a ring to it.

    • Steve_in_Vermont

      Gray was not a drug dealer. The correct term is “entrepreneur”.

  • MathMan

    How many blacks in the US, or anywhere else for that matter, would stand up to close scrutiny and be declared upright, honest citizens?

  • Earl P. Holt III

    I don’t know: It looks to me like he COULD have been elected to Congress…

  • Steve_in_Vermont

    The unemployment rate is 50% in Grays neighborhood. Take away the drug dealing and it would be close to 100%.

  • ElComadreja

    What they may have done in conjunction with them certainly does. Doing a little dope = no big deal. Killing someone to get the money to do a little dope = big deal.
