FREDDY GRAY TRIAL #1: AUDIO ADDED TO ARREST VIDEO AND LEAVES JURORS SHAKEN

The beating and arrest of Freddy Gray appears to have taken place before William Porter, currently on trial for his death, was involved.

But the arrest videos, one of which was taken by a friend of Gray's, was shown in court a few days ago. 






Feeling Rebloggy



"The first cellphone footage shown in court was a video taken by bystander Kevin Moore. That video has been shown on a loop on the news, with footage of Gray as his legs go limp and bike-patrol officers hold him on either side. This video, however, includes audio that the public hasn't heard. In it, a police officer has Gray on the ground, handcuffed; and while it's not shown on the video, Gray is allegedly hit with a stun gun repeatedly. It's difficult to distinguish who's speaking as a voice yells, "Why are they tasing him like that? Wondering why he can't use his legs? Don't worry, we recording this s--t."

As the audio played, some jurors were visibly shaken. Gray's mother, Gloria Darden, wiped her eyes quietly throughout Ross' testimony but began sobbing loudly by the end of the second grainy cellphone video, which wasn't as clear for viewing but had audio that captured the emotion of the moment. Ross can be heard on the video saying, "Hey, can we get a supervisor here, please!"
