U.S. Anti-Black Racism Update

Welp. One of Freddie Gray's murderers was acquitted. If you can't remember which case this is, because there are SO FUCKING MANY, Freddie Gray was the one who had his spine severed after being driven around in a police van on the scenic route in a way that was violent enough to severe his fucking spine. How anyone could actually believe that a person could severe their own spine by being "uncooperative" while shackled in a van is, of course, entirely beyond me.

But whatever, probably no one really thinks that. They got away with murder because they're cops. The end.

But that's not all!

Now these shit cops are suing the city prosecutor for defamation and invasion of privacy for doing her fucking job. Apparently, you can't even try to prosecute killer cops because they'll sue you for it. Fuck off.

Luckily, it sounds like it's very unlikely for such a lawsuit to hold up in court. Finally, the courts working against the police for once!

These cops, though:

Through Mosby's statements, they claim their "character and reputation ... were harmed, their standing and reputation in the Baltimore City Police Department and the community at large — locally, nationally, and internationally — were impaired, [and] they continue to suffer mental pain and anguish, and humiliation." 
The officers note that they were placed on administrative leave without pay by the police department, and "have suffered, and continue to suffer, monetary damages in the form of lost income, lost raises in salary, and lost promotions."

Waaaahhhhhh we murdered an unconvicted kid in a van and now everybody hates us waaaahhhhhhhhhhhh.

The cop tears.
