Obama: People Of Baltimore Want The Truth On Freddie Gray

At the White House today, President Obama commented on the situation in Baltimore after the Maryland State attorney charged six Baltimore police officers in the death of Freddie Gray.

Although he was careful not to comment on the specifics of the case, Obama issued a clarion call for the truth.

“It is absolutely vital that the truth comes out on what happened to Freddie Gray,” he said, calling for “justice to be served.”

Obama made his comments after a meeting with persecuted journalists to mark World Press Freedom Day.

One police officer was charged with second-degree murder, while the others were charged on counts of manslaughter, involuntary manslaughter, office misconduct, assault, negligence and false imprisonment.

Referring to the police officers, Obama reminded reporters that they are “entitled to due process and rule of law.”

He added that the Justice Department would remain in communication with Baltimore officials to assist them with the investigation.

“What I think the people of Baltimore want more than anything else is the truth,” he concluded. “That’s what people around the country expect.”
