BALTIMORE---The first of six Baltimore police offi-
cers charged in the death of a 25-year-old black
man who suffered a spinal injury went on trial yes-
terday, seven months after the city erupted in riots
over the case.
Freddie Gray died a week after suffering the critical
injury when he was handcuffed and shackled in a
police transport van. In his opening statement, a
prosecutor Michael Schatzow said Officer William
Porter could have saved Gray s life simply by pushing
a button on his uniform to call for a medic.
Gray s April 19 death triggered protests and rioting
in Baltimore. It became a rallying cry in the Black
Lives Matter protest movement, which emerged
nationwide in response to several police
killings of African-Americans over the past
Porter wasn t involved in Gray s initial
arrest in April, but he was present at five
of six stops that the van made during a 45-
minute ride after Gray was taken into cus-
tody, prosecutors said. At one point, Porter
asked Gray if he needed a medic, and the
young black man replied that he could not
breathe and could not move from the floor
of the van, where he had been placed head-
first, in plastic handcuffs and leg shackles.
Instead of calling a medic, prosecutors
say Porter picked Gray up from the floor
and placed him in an upright position on
the bench, and did not secure him in a seat-
belt, as required by Baltimore Police Depart-
Gray arrived at a police station unrespon-
sive, was taken to a hospital and died a week
Porter, who is also black, faces charges
of involuntary manslaughter, second-degree
assault, misconduct in office and reckless
endangerment. The charges carry maximum
prison terms totaling about 25 years.
His attorneys were to present their open-
ing statement later yesterday.
Two other officers charged in the case
are black and the three others are white.
They will be tried separately beginning
in January. (AP)
