Prisoner in Van Said Freddie Gray Was ‘Trying to Injure Himself,’ Document Says

Peter Hermann, Washington Post, April 29, 2015

A prisoner sharing a police transport van with Freddie Gray told investigators that he could hear Gray “banging against the walls” of the vehicle and believed that he “was intentionally trying to injure himself,” according to a police document obtained by The Washington Post.

The prisoner, who is currently in jail, was separated from Gray by a metal partition and could not see him. His statement is contained in an application for a search warrant, which is sealed by the court. The Post was given the document under the condition that the prisoner not be named because the person who provided it feared for the inmate’s safety.

The document, written by a Baltimore police investigator, offers the first glimpse of what might have happened inside the van. It is not clear whether any additional evidence backs up the prisoner’s version, which is just one piece of a much larger probe.

Gray was found unconscious in the wagon when it arrived at a police station on April 12. The 25-year-old had suffered a spinal injury and died a week later, touching off waves of protests across Baltimore, capped by a riot Monday in which hundreds of angry residents torched buildings, looted stores and pelted police officers with rocks.

The affidavit is part of a search warrant seeking the seizure of the uniform worn by one of the officers involved in Gray’s arrest or transport. It does not say how many officers were in the van, whether any reported that they heard banging or whether they would have been able to help Gray if he was seeking to injure himself. Police have mentioned only two prisoners in the van.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts has admitted flaws in the way officers handled Gray after they chased him through a West Baltimore housing project and arrested him. They said they later found a switchblade clipped to the inside of his pants. Batts has said officers repeatedly ignored Gray’s pleas for medical help and failed to secure him with a safety belt or harness in the back of the transport van.

Video shot by several bystanders has fueled the rage in West Baltimore. It shows two officers on top of Gray, putting their knees in his back, then dragging his seemingly limp body to the van as he cries out.

Batts has said Gray stood on one leg and climbed into the van on his own.

The van driver stopped three times while transporting Gray to a booking center, the first to put him in leg irons. Batts said the officer driving the van described Gray as “irate.” The search warrant application says Gray “continued to be combative in the police wagon.”

The driver made a second stop, five minutes later, and asked an officer to help check on Gray. At that stop, police have said the van driver found Gray on the floor of the van and put him back on the seat, still without restraints. Police said Gray asked for medical help at that point.

The third stop was to put the other prisoner–a 38-year-old man accused of violating a protective order–into the van. The van was then driven six blocks to the Western District station. Gray was taken from there to a hospital, where he died April 19.

The search warrant application says that detectives at the time did not know where the officer’s uniform was located and that they wanted his department-issued long-sleeve shirts, pants and black boots or shoes. The document says investigators think that Gray’s DNA might be found on the officer’s clothes.

      You underestimate them, my friend. Give them time to come up with yet another lie.

  • Truthseeker

    Blacks fail, Blacks blame Whites, and a once-great American city burns. The European race is so marvelous and yet, Third World peoples are our eternal Achilles’ heel. Whenever we finally get separation from them, we should have strict rules against racial diversity in our new country. Those of us who lived through this must take care to pass on to future generations the horrors that come from mixing with these people.

    • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

      We should send any future descendants that crave diversity to Africa. Enjoy all the diversity you want, just not in our country, on our dollar, and not polluting our gene pool when you’re “racially enriched” and have keeyids.

      • Epiminondas

        But don’t let them change their minds and come back. Once they go over, they stay over.

        • newscomments70

          That was a similar situation with Western traitors who defected to the communist side. Almost all of them begged to come back, and most were allowed back (with a few exceptions). Once they leave the Garden of Eden, they should be shut out forever.

          • a1781054

            The Western defectors were allowed back in?

          • newscomments70

            Most were, including Lee Harvey Oswald.

            He was a patsy, by his own admission. (careful, censors, I didn’t use the “J” word in describing his sudden “accident” that fateful November weekend. Am I back in the clear now?)

          • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

            Haven’t you ever noticed that the majority of traitors have a specific look? I can usually spot a ‘shark a mile away. But I posted on another thread that we need to make a database. Pictures, names, etc. Make sure we know our enemies. They are proud of it, put themselves out there and so we wouldn’t be doing anything illegal, just ensuring that we don’t accidentally end up with them among us when the time comes.

          • cherrie greenbaum123

            A few of the traitors were pulled from a swamp in Mississippi back in the summer of ’64. Clearly they have an agenda so strong that it doesn’t deter them from upsetting the status quo, for whatever high, moralistic ideals they espouse. Since we now know that such a violent death doesn’t preclude them from their anarchistic path, we must assume that whatever their mission is, it is given the complete blessing of a power neither your nor I can even hope to contemplate nor imagine. Gnome sane?

          • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

            I think so…and that’s pretty scary.

        • cherrie greenbaum123

          One of my DWL friends tells me her relatives were sent to this country back in the day as prisoners because they were horse thieves in the old country. She’s blonde and blue eyed, around 60 now. Why can’t we send the “undesirables” back to the muddahland now, with a stipend, no less?

You can provide compensation for past wrongs. I’m willing to do that. We started in ’65 with AA, Medicaid, Welfare, Section 8, EBT, et. al. I’m willing to throw in another 50 grand per man, woman, and chile for a one way ticket back to Africa and a revocation of U.S. citizenship. The mark of a true man is admitting he’s wrong, and we couldn’t have been more wrong in expecting a Third World race to succeed in a First World country. Gnome sane?

      • Tarczan

        It doesn’t have to be as bad as it is though. Help blacks keep the family together by not promoting welfare. Make them stand on their own, and don’t import more third world types to compete with them. And please stop telling them that YT and racism are responsible for their own problems, not themselves and their own failings.

        • cherrie greenbaum123

          All true, my friend. We can’t turn the clock back now, can we? What was a politically expedient idea back in’64 (curse LBJ!) has turned in to a monumental failure. When I was a DWL, I actually believed in AA, with the justification that “we can’t all of a sudden declare, hey, it’s 1965, and ya’ll are equal to YT!” I still have problems with that, but human nature being what it is, negroes took that to mean permanent maintenance from YT in perpetuity. No matter what you, I, or anyone else on this thread or in power say or believe, that’s just not gonna happen. Unfortunately, the majority of our negroes just don’t want to believe that.

        And Gray had plenty of chances to suicide by police van before. Why now, then? Do you really think he feared the justice system? He’d walked multiple times before. You believe what you want to believe, not what the verifiable facts point to.

    This was reported on another site (can’t remember which one) and the usual suspects said “Who believes a prisoner? They lie!” Yet, all of the fine, upstanding citizens in Ferguson were believed when they gave their eyewitness accounts of St. Michael Brown’s death. Funny how it’s always acceptable when it fits their narrative. Facts DON’T matter to these people and never will. It really seems futile to keep pulling out facts when it gets us nowhere.

    • thegodsofeden

      It doesn’t help pulling out facts, when they won’t pull out their heads.

    A potential problem with this story is the anonymous prisoner never saw Freddie Gray, he only heard him.

  • ElComadreja

    Maybe they can do us a favor and burn down the rest of Baltimore when no charges are brought.

    • LS Wight

      Of course!

  • Lexonaut

    For purposes of discussion let’s say that the rioters are right, that Freddie Gray was murdered by vicious white police who could resist the temptation to kill an innocent black man.

    Who could then reasonably argue with an America in which all white police officers have been pulled out of minority communities? There would be no possibility of these kinds of situations. The white occupying army could not be blamed because it wouldn’t be there.

    Let’s give them what they want — white-free zones policed by, and governed by, minorities only (and I don’t mean Asians or Jews). Baltimore came close to this ideal but still had white cops on the street, and a token white police chief. It wasn’t enough to head off this kind of nonsense.

    Would this be segregation? No, because I’m not talking about forced separation of the races. Under my proposal all people would live wherever they wanted that they could afford.

    • Who could then say that black police officers should not hold arrest powers over whites, Amerinds or Orientals? This is a two-way street.

      • Lexonaut

        I don’t see why it has to be a two way street. However, apparently you do so tell us why.

        I would in fact allow blacks to police whites, Indians and Orientals. It happens now, nobody seems upset, and there were no riots in Salt Lake City when, shortly after the Mike Brown killing in Ferguson, a black cop shot and killed an unarmed white teenager who was charging him.

        The event got no news coverage to speak of, and there were no riots. Why not? Because the officer was simply doing his job when he killed in self defense. The good people of SLC knew this and had no problem with the situation.

        • Charles Martel

          That Salt Lake City was not self defense but another chimpout.

        • mikey7777

          yea WHITE PEOPLE knew this

          • Lexonaut

            Many AmRen readers knew about the SLC killing but most whites did not and do not. Or are you addressing some other issue?

        • It civilized races are not allowed to police blacks, it naturally follows that they should not be allowed to police us. Or live on our continents.

          • Lexonaut

            If anything is to be done it is going to have to be with the approval of the libs. No matter how right you are in the abstract, I don’t see how to get that done here.

            Russia has always made wise use of autonomous regions but it doesn’t follow that we can make them happen too. My proposal is to set up autonomous cities, I suppose, but I don’t see how to get beyond that.

          • Baltimore is already an autonomous city, separate from the surrounding county. In a bad mood, I might propose killing all the libtards, but then where would we stop? Needless to say, I do not have all the answers.
            .

          • Lexonaut

            I didn’t express myself clearly enough …

            Criminal laws against murder, looting, arson, armed robbery, etc etc etc exist at the state level, not the local level. Counties and/or cities have enforcement powers only because they were delegated by the state.

            In effect I’m saying, when it comes to Baltimore, forget the usual interpretation of, and enforcement of, state law. Let them have their own way of interpreting and enforcing.

            It would be the same kind of concept as the Navajo Nation per our discussion of the other day. They’re officially subject to state criminal law, but in practice they have their own ways of doing things. It was in that sense that I meant autonomous cities.

          • Deacon Blue

            I prefer to swap out the word “continent” with “planet!” 😛

        • Tarczan

          My experiences with darkie officers have not been good.

          • Lexonaut

            But you have the darkie officers already, yes? By pleading guilty to all the ridiculous charges of institutional racism, etc, it becomes just barely possible to either a) sell the idea to libs, or b) wake more people up as they listen to the libs try to wriggle out of the idea.

          • Who Me?

            Couple of problems here. First the people in charge are hell-bent on injecting blacks into EVERY neighborhood in America, thus making policing these areas by race problematic. Second blacks WILL follow and commit crimes in White areas unless forcibly restrained from entering, again, getting blacks arrested by White police = rioting, this time in OUR areas….

        • InAFreeCountry

          Do you believe that an all-black police department would be above corruption? Above harassing White people just because they can?

          • Lexonaut

            Of course an all-black police department would be horribly corrupt. What of it? It wouldn’t affect you or me, would it? And if some of them would harass white people just because they can, again, what difference would it make if you never go into their town or city?

            My proposal isn’t intended to solve any problem other than to eliminate the riots without having to impose a police state. If it makes more problems for blacks, well, that’s tough noogies — too darn bad.

    • LS Wight

      Let’s hear more of your proposal because diversity is a white western failure. It’s communist model of hypocrisy only results in destruction.

      • Lexonaut

        I don’t know that I have a lot more to say than I’ve already said in other comments posted to the thread we’re in now. Still, I will riff on this …

        Jared Taylor is absolutely right — that separation of the races is the only answer. The question I’ve been struggling with is how to get there from here.

        Assuming it works my proposal would do little more than stop the riots. However, that’s worth a lot to me. There were riots last night in NYC and Denver over something that happened in Baltimore — and I live in a Denver suburb not far from downtown.

        It would simply be a first step. However, if the proposal were discussed openly, the anti-white left would have to tell everyone why my proposal is a bad idea — why it’s important to continue to have white police killing innocent black men when they claim that ghetto residents have every right to riot when this kind of thing happens, whether real or imaginary.

        Further more, if the proposal were adopted and it worked but riots continued outside the inner cities, even the most hardened liberals would have to ask themselves what gives blacks the right to riot in the suburbs when nothing at all has happened.

        These kinds of discussions inevitably would turn to the government’s own crime-by-race statistics, and that would be a major victory in the attempt to return this nation to a common sense discussion of the race problem.

        • Screamin_Ruffed_Grouse

          Your thinking is sound, unfortunately it relies on the premise that the people you are trying to convince are also of sound thinking, or even have any good intentions. They don’t.

          The leftists of whom you speak are not swayed at all by the truth, because they have no interest in it. Rational solutions mean nothing to them, both because the gripes they put forth aren’t really what animates them, and because they are not rational people. And they pander to a population which are largely unintelligent, and seek emotional gratification above all else. Truth and reason don’t always jive with this.

          As for how will they answer, that’s easy. Black LEOs for black areas? That’s racist, because you’re forcing all the black cops to work the dangerous high crime areas while the white cops guard the Krispy Kreme in Mayberry. They still riot? That’s because racist whites still deny them edumuhkayshun and good jobs.

          I mean, we’re all just waxing philosophical here, so none of it really matters. But while your thinking is sound, your idea would be doomed before it ever hit the ground.

          • Lexonaut

            Nah. Borders are bidirectional, guards on both sides can be bypassed, and police on the other side can be bribed. We can be in Mexico in six hours without meeting anyone if we abandon a car, and we can enter Canada in 12 hours without meeting anyone, while hanging onto a car.

            Once out of the US it’s just a hop, skip and jump either to in-country consulates or to the countries themselves. What if there’s no gasoline, you ask? Well, somebody always has gasoline, it’s just a question of price. What if the cars don’t work? Well, for a price a long haul taxi service can be arranged. What if US currency is no good? Well, there are alternatives.

            Of course if we’ve been arrested in the USA for some reason, all bets are off.

      • Lexonaut

        For me the question on the floor at the moment is, Is there a way to make the threat of riots go away without imposing a police state?

        Which do you prefer? … a) Riots plus demands for gibs, or b) demands for gibs without riots?

  • There was a rumor going around that Freddie Gray had a structured settlement from a previous neck/spinal injury, and some were linking that to this news. Turns out the rumor was only half true:

    I love when facts come out and it is always alleged or possible ,or we don’t really know but when all the monkeys spread lies and rumours they start flinging poo.Doesn’t matter, too little too late.What, all of a sudden the monkeys will be rounded up and told to rebuild all they destroyed and apologize. NOT.

    Heh. Freddie Gray: Crimestopper

  • DelmarJackson

    I admit, I am jumping to conclusions here, but I have a simple narrative that would explain everything.

    I just read a report that ALLEGES Mr Gray went under the knife for spinal surgery a week prior to his arrest and was supposed to be in bed. I also read he was attempting to get a structured settlement in a lawsuit for his injury.

    My theory is Mr Gray was arrested and while in the van began trying to hurt his neck so he could claim police abuse and continue his occupation of acquiring income from lawsuits in court. He unfortunately hurt himself too much. Sort of a bogus slip and fall racket that went too far. It would explain why a witness seems to be claiming Gray was trying to hurt himself, and would explain why his neck injuries are so severe, and would explain why the Rev al Sharpton has not shown up and no Washington DOJ swooping in and why the riots have not gone too far and have had small crowds.

    BREAKING: Freddie Gray Allegedly Had Spine Surgery Just One Week Before Arrest

    • Jaggers

      That speculation seems totally plausible to me.

    • John Smith

      Some folks are just plain stupid, like the guy who tried to use a power sander as a sex toy. Who couldn’t figure that wouldn’t end well, same as slamming your injured neck into sheet metal?

  • Chasmania

    So another example of senseless black rioting and violence.

    They should have called this the ” GibsMeDat ! ” riot..

    And wtf is going on inside their head that they think stealing anything not nailed down is somehow ‘soothing’ their outraged psyche ?

    Sharp-Tonnage and Hi-Jackson will be sooooo disappointed…

      It will not matter a fig, Mekong. Facts do not alter the black brain’s inability to process data that suits their purpose, i.e. a reason to loot, burn and riot.

  • Rob

    I recently saw a black get into trouble with the cops. One cop was white and the other a Muslim. The white cop stayed behind the Muslim while the Muslim cop gave the negro a warning. The Negro was trying to act cool with the Muslim cop by saying that he should be a little chill and also cool. He was also trying to touch the Muslim cop. I guess the white cop did not get involved because of the whole racist thing. So you see negroes are the ones that make the situation worse by trying to act cool and make a noise of things. The stupid white libs that are protesting out in the streets should have seen what I saw and then they would have shut their mouths.

      “The stupid white libs that are protesting out in the streets should have seen what I saw and then they would have shut their mouths.” I disagree. Most white liberals are not capable of critical thinking. You can show them anything you want, but they cannot comprehend anything realistic. They have a one track mind of hatred and extremism. Our facts and figures are considered lies. And their victim groups are believed to be violent becuase they are opressed.

    What is the 0-3? The msm trying to create a story that puts on display the essential evilness of whites toward blacks. Next time they may want to wait until the basic facts are resolved.

    Police department across the nation should invest in some sort of seatbelt that couldn’t be used to strangle someone or hurt another passenger in the police transport vans.

    There should be a humane way to transport arrested persons so that they can’t tumble around in a the transport van.

    I think Freddie Gray was trying to injure himself, like those gangs that jump in front of cars to purposely get hit so they can engage in insurance fraud. He was already the recipient of a judgment for being injured previously.

  • Jason Lewis

    Sounds like the officer needs a verbal counselling for not seat-belting him in and be placed back in service. End of investigation. Nothing to see here folks.

  • A Freespeechzone

    Why can’t negroes understand that when they cop attitude and defy lawful commands from LE that they put themselves at risk of being injured or killed?

    This is a fairly simple axiom–but, they NEVER seem to learn; but, then again, comments and actions by Obama/Holder and the media embolden bad negro behavior…..

    If LE is wrong, there is an opportunity to file a complaint and press for redress.

  • Ronald Roman

    I bet he was on PCP.

    • Cato

      This was just what I was telling my family, a few minutes ago, after reviewing the facts.

      I had a friend, back in the 1970s, who was killed by police. He was high on PCP, and the police could not subdue him. So they killed him. From my perspective (and it might not be common on AmRen) there are two problems: 1) Black misbehavior; 2) Police misbehavior. The latter seems much easier to fix: I personally like the police body camera proposal. As for the former… it’s getting worse each year, and the powers that be seem intent on making it hard to fix.

      • Tarczan

        A good solution would be review boards run by the states for incidents like this.

        • HE2

          Such review boards would probably be top heavy with civil servant negroes, unfortunately.

      • BlueSonicStreak

        I can’t say I disagree with body cams. There ARE corrupt cops, and body cams would catch them. On the other hand, Wilson probably could have been cleared much faster if there was a cam video of Brown bearing down on him.

    • HE2

      I think so, too, Ronald. I have seen so many negro patients admitted in dire straits and in need of life saving major surgery, but PCP driven animal strength violence made them basically untreatable. Certain drugs a care team would administer to sedate such a patient have been known to interact lethally with PCP.

    “Freddie Gray in Good Hands of Allstate Insurance– Records Indicate Spinal Injury was Pre-Existing Condition: Part Of Insurance Settlement to Freddie Gray

    “The Media has deliberately left out much of the career criminal history of Freddie Gray in their reporting and have failed to discuss his very relevant medical history, one which may have included multiple surgeries for spinal injuries incurred in a car crash. A public records search provides evidence that Gray had received an insurance settlement and had engaged with Peachtree Funding to obtain a lump sum payment.

    The media has been remiss in reporting this information, preferring to portray the career criminal as the victim of police misconduct. Other sources indicate that Gray may have had surgery as recently as ten days prior to the incident in which he was involved in a forty-five minute flee to evade the authorities. He could have easily re-injured himself in his reckless attempt to avoid capture.

    Regardless of the amount of time that has passed since his most recent spinal surgery, it was clearly not an action by the officers involved that severed his spine. It was his own actions in combination with his earlier accident that led to his re-injury and ultimately to his death.”
