Mosby also announced that in fact, the weapon police found on Gray was not illegal after all. He was in possession of a knife that was not only legal under Maryland law, but its blade was tucked in a safe position and was inside his pocket.
Freddie Gray, it turns out, was legally bearing arms, as the Second Amendment of the Constitution guarantees.
His arrest, and his death, appear to be a violation of a number of his civil rights, and those rights include his Second Amendment rights to carry a weapon.
|There is a slight complication to this interpretation. Given Mr. Gray's long police record is possible he could be a "prohibited person". And, as we have seen recently, MD doesn't pay all that much attention to any of our constitutional amendments or precepts.
Given the "political circus" atmosphere of Mr. Gray's case following his apprehension I suspect "Truth" - and soon Justice are the real victims. Gray, a known dealer, was detained after being observed to be engaged in a possible street deal on Sunday morning in Baltimore's "drug mall". Beyond that, we know little.
