A look at the 6 officers charged

The Washington Post has the lowdown on the six Baltimore police officers charged in the death of Freddy Gray. As Paul Mirengoff inferred from the silence at the time of the charges, it’s a “diverse” group:

The six officers accused in the death of Freddie Gray face a litany of charges that include second-degree depraved-heart murder, involuntary manslaughter, false imprisonment and misconduct in office.

The officers — three white, three African American — represent a broad spectrum of experience on Baltimore’s police force. Three of them joined the force three years ago. The driver, who faces the most serious charges, is African American and has been on the force since 1999.

The Post has brief profiles of each of the officers as well as a thumbnail account of the nature of their participation in the events that allegedly led to Freddy Gray’s death. The Post also provides the composite photograph below.
