'This Did Not Begin with Freddie Gray': Baltimore Calls for Long-Term Solutions

2015-05-01T02:30:45-07:00

"Democracy Now!" airs weekdays at 9 a.m. PT on KCET.

Protests continue in Baltimore over the death of Freddie Gray as more evidence emerges that the 25-year-old died from injuries inside a police transport van.

On Thursday, police revealed that the van made a previously undisclosed stop with Gray inside. The new stop was discovered from security camera footage, not from speaking to the officers involved. The investigation also reportedly concluded that Gray's spinal injuries had to have happened inside the van, not when he was initially detained and dragged on the ground. The medical examiner reportedly found that Gray's injury was caused by his slamming into a bolt in the back of the van. It remains unclear how this happened.

Meanwhile, a key witness in the case has rejected police claims that blamed Gray for his own injuries. Baltimore police investigators have given prosecutors the initial findings from their probe, paving the way for potential indictments.

"Democracy Now!" is joined by Cornell William Brooks, president and CEO of the NAACP.
