Baltimore Activists Respond to Officer Edward Nero Not Guilty Verdict

 

Today, like many other ruthless,  lawfully-protected officers in America, Officer Nero was acquitted of all charges in the death of an unarmed black man. In 2016, in a supposedly "post-racial" country, black bodies are still not valued. 

Baltimore United for Charge, a Baltimore-based coalition of grassroots activists penned a scathing letter urging the public to continue to fight for systemic change. 

The not guilty verdict handed down in the case of Officer Edward Nero today comes as no surprise to those of us who have long recognized that securing justice – especially in the courts of the United States – is more marathon than sprint.

That notwithstanding, the moral deficiencies of the justice system are on full display when those accused of vandalizing stores are charged and convicted before any officer is held accountable in the loss of a human life.

We will remain vigilant throughout the legal proceedings for all of the officers involved in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray.
