His death was a homicide
The tragic and senseless killing of Freddie Gray by Baltimore police officers has been in the media spotlight for over a year now. The young adult’s death was ruled to be a homicide by a medical examiner last year, but, unfortunately, all three officers involved in his death were acquitted of the charges against them. That means that there is now technically no one responsible for his murder, despite it being labeled as one. Like a majority of the nation, the hip hop community was devastated and outraged to learn of the news, and gave their own reaction.
