In the case of  Freddie Gray, justice fails to be served.

Though the family has received a financial settlement, no one in the Baltimore City Police department has be faced any indictments.

The latest person in the case to get off scot-free is Caesar Goodson, Jr, the officer who was driving the van in which Freddie sustained some severe spine and neck injuries due to the way Goodman drove the van.

Goodman would have faced up to 30 years in prison if charged for his involvement in the murder of Gray,  with the serious charge of second-degree depraved-heart murder. Judge Barry Williams found him to not be at fault, and cleared him of all charges.

Williams is the same Judge who has cleared the charges of all of the other officers involved in the murder, and will be presiding over the hearings of the three more officers left who still have yet to see their day in court.
