As mayhem and destruction consumed the city of Baltimore, Maryland following the still unexplained death of black criminal Freddie Gray, unconfirmed reports are emerging that Gray’s “life-ending injuries to his spine may have possibly been the result of spinal and neck surgery that he allegedly received a week before he was arrested, not from excessively rough treatment or abuse from police,” according to news website “The Fourth Estate.”
Although not confirmed, it has been reported that Gray had a history of spine and neck problems stemming from an automobile accident in 2007.
The Fourth Estate and other online sources cite Howard County court records relating to an agreement reached between Allstate, a large insurance firm, and Gray and his sister, Fredericka, in which the Gray siblings would receive a large structured settlement stemming from an automobile accident in which they apparently were involved. According to court documents posted online, the Grays converted the settlement into a single $18,000 payment each would receive, utilizing the services of Peachtree Settlement Funding.
Calls and emails to the Baltimore Police Department from this reporter regarding these allegations were not responded to as of this writing. Additionally, William “Billy” Murphy, founder and senior partner at Murphy, Falcon & Murphy, the law firm in Baltimore representing Gray’s family, has not responded to AMERICAN FREE PRESS’s request for clarification regarding Gray’s alleged spinal and neck problems prior to his death, as well as his settlement with Allstate and Peachtree.
In an attempt to clarify the situation, The Baltimore Sun published a report late Wednesday afternoon arguing that the court case the Grays were involved in “had nothing to do with a car accident or a spine injury.” Rather, the Sun contends, the court documents cited by the Fourth Estate and other online sources “are connected to a lawsuit alleging that Gray and his sister were injured by exposure to lead paint.”
However, in the documents, Gray indicated that “work injury, medical malpractice and auto accident” best categorized his claim.
“When asked to explain,” the Sun reported, “he wrote something that is unreadable.”
“We have no information or evidence at this point to indicate that there is a prior pre-existing spinal injury,” Jason Downs, an attorney working for Murphy’s law firm, told the Sun. “It’s a rumor.”
According to the Sun, the Grays’ case was dismissed on April 2, when neither Gray nor his sister appeared in court.
The recent troubles began on the morning of Sunday, April 12. Gray was arrested after fleeing pursuing officers, who allegedly discovered a switchblade in his possession. Prior to his most recent interaction with law enforcement, Gray had been arrested 22 times in Maryland, largely for crimes relating to the possession and distribution of drugs. Gray died one week later.
Following his death, protesters took to the streets in Baltimore and across America. In Baltimore, violence, looting and mayhem followed, as the protests quickly escalated.
In the days following Gray’s death, local officials in Baltimore, a city with a 65% black population, appeared to be incapable of keeping order and responsibly dealing with the ongoing looting, violence and destruction masquerading as “peaceful protests.” Numerous businesses were ransacked, private property was damaged or destroyed, police officers and vehicles were attacked and private citizens were assaulted and robbed. The Baltimore Orioles postponed games scheduled earlier this week, and were forced to play their game on April 29 in an empty stadium due to the chaos engulfing the city.
Bizarrely, on April 25, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, a black woman, stated that official city policy was primarily concerned with ensuring “that the protesters were able to exercise their right to free speech.” She would go on to explain that protesters were given “space to destroy,” which apparently is considered “freedom of speech” in America today—at least for rioting, rampaging blacks instigated and encouraged by the controlled mass media and mainstream political establishment.
Furthermore, a senior police commander in Baltimore has alleged that Mayor Rawlings-Blake specifically told her police force to “let them loot, it’s only property,” Fox News reported.
“The mayor of Baltimore is part of a growing group of political people in black cities who look at rioters not as predators or felons, but as ‘victims of racism,’ who were forced to throw bricks at cops, or set fire to stores, or loot local restaurants,” best-selling author Colin Flaherty recently told AFP.
According to the political and media establishment in America, “the real predators are white people and their racism,” added Flaherty. “This is the greatest lie of our generation. And that is why I wrote Don’t Make the Black Kids Angry—to demonstrate that white people are the real victims of racial violence, and black people the real perpetrators.”
After receiving criticism for his department’s slow and timid response to the rioting and looting, Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts argued that due to the age of many of the thugs rampaging throughout the city, the police simply could not respond forcefully and decisively.
“They’re old enough to know better, they’re old enough to know not to do those things, they’re old enough to be accountable, but they’re still kids, unfortunately,” Batts inexcusably told reporters.
As protests continue in Baltimore and as others erupt across America, new information and testimony is challenging the media-promoted narrative that Gray died as a result of improper treatment by Baltimore police officers following his arrest.
A relative of one of the police officers involved in Gray’s arrest recently told CNN that the officer believes Gray was injured prior to being placed in a police van. Also, a prisoner in the van with Gray alleged that Gray was “banging against the walls” of the van in an attempt to deliberately injure himself, The Washington Post has reported. He now claims he was misquoted.
The Baltimore Police Department released the findings of their investigation to the state’s attorney for Baltimore on May 1, resulting in murder and manslaughter charges being filed against the six officers involved in Gray’s arrest, three of whom are black.

LOL! But I DO wonder what the “elite” will think, feel and believe once they realize the world doesn’t care about them HAHAHAHA! Bunch of inbred crybabies and freaks.
Right now, Cleveland is about to face its rioting nightmare. But, there are a group of former NFL/gang members trying to keep the calm. THEY ARE THE ONES SAYING THAT THE TROUBLE THAT IS BREWING IS COMING FROM OUTSIDE SOURCES….i.e., Jewish funded sources like Black Lives Matter, New Black Panthers, Antifa and many other colored looking but Jew-directed groups. Time to go after the money source and shut this sh*t down already. Since when does the National Guard stand down and NOT SHOOT THIEVING RIOTERS?
Lynch mob? Talk about flipping the script. An indictment is not a lynching, a mindless mass act of savagery that befell countless innocent, postbellum African-Americans.
Conversely, what may have befallen Freddie Gray could have in fact been an extra-judicial execution.
I worry that the so-called right is just as rabid and slanted as the left, and that both sides want to use us as pawns in their sinister power games. Sheesh. The snares are many and the wolves are gathering and becoming more cunning. We must remain “wise as serpents and innocent as doves.”
Well…this is why the situation never actually improves. Hanging the cops to satisfy the lynch mob in Baltimore isn’t going to solve the problem because it’s becoming clear the cops did nothing wrong.
By becoming one of the lynch mob, Mosby is perverting the system and her mouth is writing checks her ass may not be able to cash. Once these cops are released, Baltimore (and many another urban areas) is going to EXPLODE.
It’s also telling me that if divide and conquer is the name of the Illuminati/globalist game—then we’ve all been played, like pawns on a stage hypnotist’s chess board.
Also, if my church is preaching division and dehumanization, then my religion has failed not only me, but humanity and God, as well.
Because if I truly see that supremacy is the road to salvation, then maybe I have been blinded and misguided—by the ‘father of lies’ and not the Heavenly Father.
Common sense, it seems, is not so common.
LOL. Nice try though.
Sure, we treated them like animals and to the best of our abilities tried to make them believe they were, but let’s face it—they are black. We felt and feel that if the white man is God’s preference and proxy, then at the other end of the humanoid continuum stands the blacks.
How we turned what we thought were incorrigible, survival-oriented, civilization-challenged savages into subservient, self-loathing, pathetic pack animals is beyond me. Hell, maybe we shouldn’t have freed them in the first place—if even for their own damn good.
We promised them death and dismemberment if they got caught trying to read, let alone succeed. And believe me, we delivered. And now because of their dysfunction, they wind up getting used for target practice. Something just isn’t right.
Honestly, I don’t hate them. Maybe I just hate to see them so messed up. Maybe all these years and centuries of multi-generational, trauma-based mind control are inescapable.
I’ve been to Baltimore and have seen blacks and whites, living in harmony and against all odds, living in a system that wants to destroy them/us both. Hell, it’s sewn all kinds of dysfunction and evilness into us and then profited off our conflicts and misery. Still is.
Maybe this problem is a lot deeper than we think it is. If living in conflict over all this time hasn’t produced positive results, then maybe actually living in harmony will. Life is way too short and this mess has been going on way too long.
Praying for wisdom and peace; working for a deeper understanding and results.
