Cops in Freddie Gray Case Face Internal Discipline

Five officers involved in the case of Freddie Gray’s death are facing internal discipline related to the man’s fatal 2015 arrest, and three of them could be fired by the Baltimore Police Department. Officer Caesar Goodson one of the officers who could be fired—he was driving the van where an autopsy later determined Gray suffered fatal injuries. Two other officers, Lt. Brian Rice and Sgt. Alicia White, also could lose their jobs over their involvement in Gray’s death. The cops who arrested Gray face five days suspension without pay. Another officer, William Porter, was criminally charged with manslaughter but does not face any internal discipline. The five internally charged officers can either accept the recommended punishments or contest the charges before a disciplinary panel, which would be a public hearing.
