The Case for Police Abolition

"At. The time of this recording one thousand seventeen people in the US have been shot and killed by police this past year, and as the numbers continue to grow. It's got meany questioning why we're even need cops in the first place, but the question of polishing the police also makes a lot of people nervous so today we're going straight to the source in talking to an actual abolitionist. Bill Fina Y'all on. It's an important conversation that you don't want to miss. This is the nod. We've heard it all before. Give Cops Body Cams hold them accountable, cautious need diversity and bias training. We need community policing black police. We need Brown police, but as the years roll by an efforts at reform are showing no signs of stopping the brutal violence against black people in this country, a different call gaining traction is the call to abolish the prison industrial complex, which is made up of prisons, policing and surveillance all forms contrary to what a lot of. Of people believe this isn't a new school. Of Thought, it's been around since the eighties, and it's been embraced by people all over the world. Much of what we know about it. Today has been studied practice and built upon three black women. We have to mention Angela Davis Ruth Wilson, Gilmore and Mariam Kaba Today. We're joined by bill. Fina Y'all want a Baltimore based restorative justice practitioner. Who writes about abolition and how to practice it in our community? It'll pheno. Thank, you so much for being here today. It's awesome. Have you thank you? Thank you for having me so abolition. Is Abolition essentially what we talk about admission we're saying is that a world cannot just without the physical presence of police in prisons, but a world where we all have, our needs met in a way that we do not have to commit the crimes that laid us in prison, and with policing right, and so abolition forces us to complete your frame how we think about the concept of prisons and lease, and to be honest about the history of it prisons. Prisons were created as an alternative to slavery. It says so and the thirteen th amendment, and so when we look if that that violence and genocide history of policing prisons, abolition says it's not possible for us to have world rabies dynamics exist so I'm sure we've all seen a lot of the back and forth in the media, and even just an online conversations about what's reformist versus what is abolitionist. What sorts of things are absolutely out of the question or Believed that we can have rover prisons and policing exist. We just have to make it better. And abolitionist believed that is not possible behalf to completely get rid of it and create new systems and structures. How did you come to fruition? Personally had become part of your life identified. The woman is came to woman is during college was definitely my sophomore. Year of college and I thought begins to stand what it means to exist as A. A black woman in this world I understood this system is structured. That are against US I think a lot of people don't understand that the reform to slavery with prisons. The reform to slave catchers was police, and so when you have stopped with that truth as a woman as as a former refugee as an immigrant to this country will hold, I, experience, it was not possible for me to say I love blackness and not become an abolitionist. Something else. That's near and dear to your heart, and also the work that you do is the story of Keith Davis Junior talked to us a little bit about Keith and his story so keep Davis Junior. Is a twenty eight year old black man for Baltimore, who was shot at? Times by the Baltimore Police Department in June of Twenty fifteen. He's being accused and they're saying that it gun was founded in Keith was connected to a murder. In March he was sentenced to fifty years, and after five years in five rows, Amish. It's been an ongoing case that five years WWLTV's dedicated to. Always bring her into the space. Kelly Davis has four beautiful children and Khloe Amari and Jaden and his case is so connected to what was happening in Baltimore after Twenty fifteen after the murder of Freddie Gray talk to me a bit about how keeps life and story relates specifically to your Abolition Work Keith case is connected to abolition one, if forces us to see kids humanity beyond what he did as a child chief, interaction with the criminal justice system started very early, and what we know is that it was a result of all of the conditions that came with Keith birth his stories parents. Parents his poverty, and so forth, and so as a result of that chief found himself funneled into a system. That once you've been in there. It's easier to keep coming back. If Selah commits a crime, we have to ask ourselves if the necessities of somebody is not being met, and instead were thrown them in a cage cage is actually more violent and transformed into a even more violent person with Keith case what we've seen has been a blatant disregard for any kind of laws, any kind of good faith and what we saw for the past five years is lies and lies and lies and confirms. That meet cannot possibly rehabilitate a system that has no

"The prosecutor in jones v state who essentially told the jury that only iphones us white phone chargers so that is actually really interesting because he offering testimony and suggesting that these particular that's interesting <hes> all but he he he honestly i think that <hes> one of he's obsessed with two we spent a lot of time talking about it because the way that he does it he almost because he's saying things things that are not true and i don't have to be true like so many things that are not true about the reality of of what those genes are how why they are totally regular allergic teams in the context of two thousand fifteen park heights how those shoes makes them so unique and he said but these were gray new balance <hes> he knew that seem like oh. That would be that yeah. Those shoes actually did my best version of the equivalent pre talking about fairly certain we know what species were okay there <hes> nike agree to phone posits or do they penny hardaway's and they're a the most possibly the most popular nike sort of sneaker style so much so that i i had an i have an entire folder of pictures of people within kevin junkers circle of friends and acquaintances who have those exact exact same food in a variety of different colors these shoes those are basically the two thousand fifteen version in part of the grain new balance genes or not designer first of all the there was new testimony to whether whether or not those were designer versus quote unquote regular. I don't know where he buys. She's trump so offended by it on so many levels but with interesting interesting is an argument that these particular this particular characteristic is intentional distress press <hes> is to me. It sounds like expert testimony arguing even that that these are designer genes it seems like something sort of beyond the evidence that the jury heard and the idea that some characteristic of the genes is intentional versus. Is you know accidental or comes through normal wear and tear. I think would bear on how unique they are right so it i mean in some ways it would seem like unintentional distressing on genes that mashes would be more suggestive of uniqueness right then benintendi. Maybe we can go to the same store and buy right here jeans and they're going to have you know <hes> cares phrase in the same spots but unintentional national would seem more unique but either way it seems like the argument he's making certain march attention on certain marks are unintentional and he's actually holding it up and pointing to the different one. This one is intentional versus this general. He's he's bad for taking yeah thin air. That's that's troubling when this is relevant to identification and this video is the only evidence. It's that sort of directly with link the defendant to the victim in real time. It seems like a critical piece. The attorneys on both sides have a lot more freedom with how they used their words during closing arguments and in general objections are not customary. Some jurors even think it's rude at the same time. Attorneys must object if opposing counsel says something that needs to be preserved for pellet review as you might expect there were a lot of objections from both sides during closing arguments at keith's trial and none of them were sustained by judge cox deborah levy keith keith's defense attorney objected over a dozen times by my count more than twice as many times as prosecutor sidell but then again her closing argument wasn't a parade of lies is and misrepresentations at several points cox refused levi's request to approach the bench to state her specific objection into the record he overruled usually stating stating this is argument not evidence which allowed sidell to continue introducing many more facts not in evidence unreasonable inferences and misrepresentations -tations than have been discussed in this episode especially frustrating to.

"The prosecutor edited several photos and at least one video during its closing argument and presented those edited photographs to the jury through a powerpoint and the state did not show the photographs to anyone in advance and to this day has refused to admit the powerpoint into the record for pellet review stating rather absurdly that the powerpoint presented to the jury was work product. The photos in the states powerpoint were highly edited some photos appear with graphics some have circles highlights and portions taken out and superimposed on other photos. Some have green and red graphics placed on top of them. Some are cut out from one picture and superimposed on others argument that the photos were already in evidence which this court accepted has been flatly rejected and other other jurisdictions in walker. The state argued that the edited photos were already in evidence. The court said that the quote problem is that the state altered the photo so the underlying photo may have been evidence but the fact that the prosecutor altered the photo to emphasize the prosecutors opinion was improper quote to be sure altering evidence on powerpoint slides constitute misconduct and further in state b walker. The court explained just as defense counsel argued in this case quote quote. The use of the altered photograph was the equivalent of introducing uneducated evidence here. The prosecutor altered numerous photos and then in an act back to shield appellate review refused to enter those photos into evidence. This conduct is agreed in and of itself and violates mister davis's right to a fair trial trial and to effective assistance council it further interferes with the special duties a prosecutors under rule three point eight and the duty of candor. The use of visual usual age should be closely monitored because the human mind is particularly persuaded by rapid visual images <music>. This particular issue seems like it could go a couple of different ways depending on whether judge cox forces the state to put the powerpoint on the record while the jury didn't have access to the powerpoint during deliberations it was projected on a massive video screen in the courtroom for much of the state's closing and referred to over over and over again. The significance of this demonstration cannot be understated especially when combined with the state's other props keith's jeans and nike sneakers inside els commentary struck and sack and i as particularly egregious and misleading. You're zach reading some sidell argument. What's important about these. Is there designer designer jeans if they were just regular jeans. I'm not sure they'd have any significance. Everybody has jeans right but these are designer jeans and they have some intentional damage <hes> to them like right about here here here probably here. Maybe even this one but they have some unintentional damage to so i had that i was like first. Thing i said to myself was was. How do you know these things right. You're not an expert in garments. You're not a taylor fabric guy not a clothing buyer. What are you talking about number one number two again. These things didn't come up in trial like there was no expert who testified to the nature nature of the gene so i'd say just look similar right yeah they've got to sort of faded wash <hes> and they have some like some distressing like some homework and so when i'm reading what he's saying and you know again. I don't know if this is gonna be something. That's going to a judge. Hopefully it is because what you're doing doing is you're essentially using the james to put keys at the same so when you're saying they're designer. You provided zero testimonial evidence anything anything to suggest that you don't even know what brand they are. Gonna tell you something they are aeropostal. They are rand soul like tween <music> in malls like and they are faded jeans like they're not they all like euler geez in nineteen forty four so clearly if they're not designer jeans number one number two. How do you know what constitutes intentional with an unintentional my conversation with erica. I like insiders commentary about the unique characteristics of the jeans and shoes to the.

"That's the problem <hes> because that stat statement and micro housing argument has nothing to do with the murder of jones. It's is completely separate from it and the case law. I was looking into said essentially you can't have just flagrant statements against against the character of the defendant or defense counsels but it has to be material to the story of the crime. You're trying to tell and has to be based on hard evidence. It appears to me like it is a violation because it doesn't have anything to do with the crime. It doesn't add anything or subtract subtract anything to whether or not keith was at pimlico and put those bullets kevin jones it doesn't it doesn't add anything subtract anything into. It's purely there to paint a certain way. You know i'm not saying this is a a thing that sex more than men but there were several women on that jury he's he's was with women and i'm sure on some level like i said i would represent surprised one of them so if one of them if triggered trauma for one of them right. There's no way that a seasoned prosecutor patrick sidell doesn't know that that's what he's feeling on that tirade not hoping to sway one one woman on that jury in fact it was an all male jury i he he would unit bought it up <music>. The important time is now the importance of feeling professional polish and prepare when accounts right now for small.

"The issue is the content as far as the sheeting aspects that doesn't come up in the course of the trial title at all right. Let's come up past trials but it didn't come up in this one and all that matters right now for this motion is this one it was not talked about at all so in the course of the closing argument he goes on a tirade about she's talking to this woman talking to that woman and how essentially implying how could he dismiss the love being presented to him by kelly who is smiling in this context. How could he disrespect her. Love and of course at the same time jury is looking and seeing her in the courtroom most of the days and i'm sure there's an emotional reaction the action there and right he spends a paragraph or two and transcript talking about this so on the one hand it's nowhere near the material to the commission of a crime has nothing to do with it really just it constitutes impeachment of character so all you're doing is tarnishing orange shing the defendant in a way that has nothing to do with the murder. This is the first time the juries hearing this and this is one thing that i was really thinking about. <hes> you know like what talk about my mother for five minutes <laughter> the worst thing you can do in the world is cheat it on your partner murder might as bad to her cheating on your partner. I promise you until agree. It's the worst thing you can do. She has no tolerance for that and i promise you it she was on that jury and obviously it wasn't my mother. She was a random person on this jury and she she heard at the very end of the trial that oh wait his wife's been here the whole time and he was cheating on her in the beginning of this dog <music> so fuck him they would be an entire change of of judgment in some capacity within her enough to a potentially if she was on the fence <hes> that might be enough just the fact that he did those things even though even has nothing to do with the with the crime. It'd be enough enough emotionally to push toward a conviction. I don't know for a fact that there's anybody on that jury that that the same way but i would be zero percent surprised if at least and all it takes is one person needed unanimous so one person hurt that and flip guilty..

"This is going to be state exhibit eighty five. You heard the judge say it's admitted into evidence all the printed photos that we have for you. You're going to get it on a disk. She can actually look at them zoom newman on them. The reason that's important is when you look at these photos. You can zoom in on this pocket. What do you see the pocket for. Some reason has been unbuckled. You'll get his rear pocket zoom in on it. His rear pocket has been unbuckled but then when you look at the bag. The bag is still at shut. You should ask yourself if the bag is latched shut and the pockets are all unbuttoned an open house that happened because we have video of him walking looking down the street and you can see that the victim has nothing in his hands. There's his right hand right there and there's nothing in his hands. There's no cell phone in his hands bliss tax. There's no grill. There's no box. It's just him in the bag. So where do these items come from. We know the girl wasn't in his mouth because a blue is to frontier off. There's no damage to the grill so if they're not in the bag and they're not his hands. Were they there in his pockets. You've got a mass man balling somebody to an isolated area where makes physical contact as a face to face confrontation belongings are scattered across the parking lot and his pockets are taken out and and what's the thing that's missing from this crime scene no wallet no cash no credit cards. Kevin jones is going to go an entire shift five to one without eating lunch this day apparently every single one of you have just connected the dots about what this case is and what this case is really about <music> about what the defendant was doing in that parking lot. It's permissible for him to comment on with absent absent like if it is it is in fact the case that there is no money recovered from him like that's something you can talk about and then we're talking about sort of permissible inference. Could he argue that it is not that it's not believable that he wouldn't have had money on him because he would have had to have gotten lunch that day or every man who goes to work at a little money in his pocket or something like i mean so yeah. I don't necessarily think so either either what about the fact that kevin jones in terms of distance between his job and where he lived. It's three blocks right so then that is something that the defense could argue in closing and in contrast to what the state's saying but the state but that i think is the permissible argument to say. The absence of money is suggestive of robbery because he wouldn't have gone all day without money like i think that's argument. I think that might be it's very close to the edges of what is sort of his argument for sure. He wasn't indicted robbery if they thought he committed a robbery. Why didn't they indict him on a robbery right. I mean i think i think that it's on the line. I think that it's an interesting issue. I think at a minimum he attempted to state tends to sort of stay within the parameters formidable argument by laying it out the way that he did. It's like there was no money recovered from his person. You know one thing that's interesting. Though wasn't that rebuttal so it's both both the bulk of the robbery motive sidled delivers during his regular closing arguments. That's the stuff you heard earlier but he saves some pretty inflammatory tori remarks for the very very end his rebuttal. Here's that part and remember. The defense does not get respond..

"Not surprisingly jurors place a great deal of trust in the accuracy and reliability of dna evidence evidence wack versus state two thousand thirteen thus when prosecutor misleads the jury particularly regarding d._n._a. Reversal is required a while. I would love for you to be able to hear patrick sidell deliver his closing using arguments herself. We can no longer obtain audio of criminal court proceedings after we broke the maryland rule against broadcasting such audio on this very podcast. I don't expect it will last but for the time being i have to read the transcript allowed to you just a couple of notes throughout this this portion of his closing argument sidell holds up photos of the crime scene points out kevin jones's body and the various objects surrounding him. He also holds up keith's jeans and his sneakers. Here's the relevant portion of the testimony related to the d._n._a. Evidence or lack thereof in this particular trial <music> the dna whereas dna whereas the d._n._a. Where's the blood. You got these in digital format. You can literally zoom in to a._b._c._d. The n._f. Can get down. You can zoom in sixty times on these photographs. Not one of those objects has blood on it there within a couple of feet of the body the box dozen inhabit his grill dozen habit. The phones don't have it. The bliss dex doesn't have it. The bag doesn't have any blood on it. So why would you think that the shooter got new blood on him. That makes zero sense sense and what we learn is that the blood is literally contained to the body. He had over liter of blood in his chest cavity a leader of blood. It's all internal. It's all internal. There's going to be blood splatter everywhere. This isn't an episode of dexter okay. This is real life. There's no d._n._a. Tests because there is no d._n._a. Right out of the scene and the problem you wanna go and touch the defendant stuff. He blood all over a stuff. The defendant bled all over stuff so even if we try to go look at this. How are we going to distinguish between his blood and the victim's blood which one of these spots we say oh. This spot is kevin. Jones's spot that we can say it's not his spot. That's the problem is the defendant's bleeding on his own stuff. That's why we can't do d._n._a. Same thing with the pants their cupboard first of all they're covered in grease if we're looking at them but they're covered in blood. Which one of the spots should we pick when we know it's the defendant's blood from being shot. That's why d._n._a. Doesn't affect this case and you remember what mistake said when it comes to d._n._a. Then in case like this fingerprints reprints are even better than d._n._a. Fingerprints are the only piece of evidence that is one hundred percent unique even in d._n._a. You can't distinguish between a twin fingerprints can so that's twi ms banks and i focused on the fingerprints 'cause that was the more reliable piece of evidence prosecutor patrick sidell would perhaps prefer to pretend that the idea of there being d._n._a. Evidence in this case is so absurd that the state never even bothered to test for it but my living room wall begs to differ there were enough. Deanna requests and reports entered into evidence at the previous trials to cover all all the holes. I made in the drywall in my living room trying to be handy the d._n._a. Testing span from january two thousand sixteen until late last year on january fourteenth two thousand sixteen detective mark vini requested for kevin jones's blood to be compared to several d._n._a..

"Of the motion researching case law that would support overturning returning the verdict based on some of the issues that were glaringly clear in the states closing arguments. Here's erica so in a motion for new trial. He's he's still going to be the defendant but he's been party. Yeah i mean he's not going to be the appellant until he's in the court of special appeals okay so he remains the defendant in the motion for new trial but he's moving party so the burden of production and the burden of persuasion is on the defendant so right it shifts and <hes> this is where we were applying abuse of discretion standard so basically he has to demonstrate that the courts particular ruling on on whatever issue so for example if the defense objected to an argument <hes> the state's argument in closing <hes> in court tonight it then and they're making that argument again and the motion for new trial that adecco ruling was sort of so oh beyond the pale so out of the ordinary that the air was such that it could have changed the outcome of the trial but like step one the a court ruling was completely erroneous and then step to that that error praise a possibility that the result would have been different so it granted a motion for new trial he would hear it. If the case went up to the court especial appeal and was reversed it will get remanded back to the same judge to hear it again. You heard right then it could potentially go back in the hopper and goes to someone else but generally speaking <music> would go back to the same judge typically <music>.

Hearings on neutral motions are usually really held on the same day as sentencing that means unless judge cox orders a hearing on an earlier date he will hear arguments and rule on the motion on november fourteenth the they keep scheduled to be sentenced. Judge cox should expect a packed house. A reasonable doubt is a doubt founded upon reason proof beyond a reasonable doubt requires are such proof that would convince you of the truth of fact to the extent that you would be willing to act upon such belief without reservation in an important matter in your own <unk> business or personal affairs if you are not satisfied of the defendant's guilt to that extent for each and every element of the crime charged then reasonable doubt exists and and the defendant must be found not guilty of that crime belief. It's a profound feeling but it can be terrifying when the stakes are high and completely out of your control. I wasn't raised religious so i don't have any sort of spiritual basis for this concept and things like the the law of attraction and miracles can be manifested. Frankly i wouldn't trust me not to screw those things up. I had the same sense of paranoia during the trial trial.

Six months after Commissioner Batts was fired and five months after the fit unit was disbanded by new Commissioner. Kevin davis. I have a hunch that Seth Stauton is in going to like this. I'm not sure how familiar you are with Maryland, wall enforcement officers. Biltrite surely, but not I don't to be an expert. But I know, for example, the tonight delays lawyer provision, one of the longest, right?

But you get the information in diligent, you don't just sit for seven months. Just think of an excuse for. Oh, yeah. And one more thing six weeks before Eskin, Philip UIs, Santiago and Lopez were finally compelled to give statements Baltimore states, attorney Marilyn most be sent each officer letter of declaration, assuring them that no criminal charges would be filed. She never asked them to say word. The charges filed on June thirteenth two thousand fifteen involved. A long list of serious crimes and three. Yes. Three victims.

"Lena skins, Catherine chill to we're just to the officers who ended up at bigger auto repair on Eleanor that Sunday morning. The northwest district station was just a block and a half away. And the officer in charge sergeant afraid o-. Santiago was getting ready to fire up the grill and preparation for early Father's Day celebration. He had planned for his squad. When dispatch issued the signal thirteen Santiago was already in the parking lot. So he sprinted over to his department issued Chevy Tahoe hopped inside and hit the gas officer Israel. Lopez was working two man unit that morning doing a warrant initiative with officer Thomas Kirby junior when the commotion on the radio cut their attention and change their plans. They were. Still on park heights avenue when the first gunshots rang out it's not clear what time they arrived at the garage Ellinora. But the shooting definitely wasn't over because Lopez still had three bullets to fire himself with any point in time. To learn how many officers shot your shot at you. Four officers discharged their weapons into bigger auto repair that morning. Leinna skins, Catherine Philip Oooo sergeant Alfredo, Santiago and Israel. Lopez three of their bullets struck. Keith Davis junior the first hit in his right bicep, a second bullet grazed the right side of his back and the third and last bullet pierced through Kice right cheek and down into the side of his neck where it would remain for too long years. Distinguishing criminal investigation. From an administrative investigation is important for several reasons for starters, the stakes are different and administrative investigation could at its most severe result in suspension or termination, while a criminal investigation could result in serious charges. Second determining whether a crime was committed requires detectives to.

"Yeah. And so a meal you mentioned the non say case in the dog pursuit of Justice by Robbie a- Hersely peaking your interests. This case the Keith Davis junior case has primarily been investigated and presented by women. We have the two of you. We have LS berry writing a piece for the intercept. We have in the Ronnie long case be covered on the podcast his wife, Ashley fighting for Justice over the years. And I'm not the first person to say this been a lot written about how criminal Justice reform is a feminist issue. And that women are taking the lead in criminal Justice reform is for both of you. What do you think the criminal Justice reform is a feminist issue? And why you think it is women who are really leading the charge in many of these issues. I mean, when I can say that I think that I mean, I don't have personal experience with this myself. But I think when you look at the actual search statistics about who is incarcerated it is not should not come as a surprise that. When a large volume of black men are sent to prison. That they are leaving wives and girlfriends and children at home, and those wives and children women and their partners are left to carry the burden. So it's a feminist issue in that sense it affects, you know, their lives in in huge ways. You know, I think the people think of a criminal Justice entered of crime in policing all this stuff is sort of like a man's world. So I definitely have felt personally as a as a woman trying to do this work a little bit on not taking seriously. Let's put it that way. So for me, that's my sort of personal experience with it. But just sort of observing I have seen somebody like Kelly to me is I don't know how Kelly does what she does every day. I can barely do. I haven't done laundry like three weeks. So I don't have chil- child. Let alone for let alone sort of stuff that she's carrying. So I'm utterly. I have so much admiration for her. She's been a tremendous advocate for Keith. And just a phenomenal person. Everybody who I talked about this case, they wanna talk about Kelly like as subjects in herself because she has been the leader of this fight. Everybody sort of backed keep the news on TV who supports key is also there for Kelly because she's a phenomenal person. She's a born organizer. This may not be what she thought was ever going to be doing. But my God, she's good at it. So I've just sorry that it had to happen because of something so tragic and unnecessary in Kelly foaling, the with the media calling you in natural organizer, you have your group Baltimore block. And what can you tell us about boats more block, Baltimore, blah is in aggressive organization that was around a while even before Freddie on the kind of always the homeless. They kinda always had like books for the kids in. They just. Kinda were a group of everyday people in ethic that that you know, million all of the things that I have responsible Baltimore black that everyday people with husbands girlfriends in children, you know, they kinda just throw themselves in wherever they're needed. So when Friday with Tyrone west into one Jones, they Hannah advocated for her with Greg Byrne thing, they are very instrumental and Mela MOS b actually being elected. They kinda got behind her in the election against burn seeing end in kinda, you know, was with her, and they support it to wander Jones than when Freddie gray came in the uprising they were you know, right there on the front line..

"Bigger had some morning at least although the garage was closed. It wasn't empty son Bernard Berkeley and son's fiance's Martina Washington. They were inside cleaning and they'd left the large bay door wide open when Keith Davis came running in. They went running out and within those first few seconds. The first shots rang out who actually fired them. It's a matter of debate. What is certain is this Keith Davis junior was shot three times on the right side of his body. The first bullet hit him and his right bicep. And at some point though, he doesn't recall when he sustained degrees wound to the middle right side of his back. The most serious one was the bullet that pierced his right cheek. The trajectory was at a downward angle and came up the right side of his neck leaving fragments behind. Kelly Belushi was on the phone with Keith at the moment that shot mate impact. Also that you heard right before the phone dropped from dropped. And you're on the phone with you hurt specially loud right before the big pump. And I believe through sheds. Yeah. Because when Keith explains it he says he's stepped up to him and tried to shoot his face off. And actually a medical expert that we talked to he liked pitcher. And he was saying that the trajectory of if consistent with Keith e off guard because their story we shot for jury and it hit. So he was saying that the trajectory of the bullet is is not consistent with them saying that keep was staying pointing gonna that's the case in the the and went up hitting died. The booze consistent with Keith maybe tar like this and turning away in the trajectory of the bullet went in around. And that's how it came. They're saying they didn't know they're saying that once he was like, okay. I give up I surrender. I'm gonna come out. And he crawled out is when they were like, oh he shot in the face. The refrigerator had blood. It's going down. There's no blood row. There's this kind of there's no blood on the top of the fridge. There's no blood dripping down on the top of the fridge. It is in the center of the frigerator. Would it looks like to me that they shot him? And maybe he hits went down. Medics were called at nine fifty nine. But when they arrived at ten six officers on scene wouldn't allow them to drive the ambulance onto Ellinora park in front of the garage. They apparently were already very concerned about the crime scene. There wasn't lady. She was Caribbean is dead tour. She said that it sound like a war zone like bay. And she said that they were just up there doing whatever. And she does not know what he did to let them know alive. But they have been just stagnant for a while. And then all of a sudden England's in quantum out here. And she knew he was alive because of the way they reacted like people ran down and everything like that. It would not let the paramedic bring the truck to the garage thing. They made him we'll the gurney because they said they did not want to disrupt the crime scene. How the hell did you have crime scene crime scene technician didn't get there? Two hours later. They put out cones and markers and everything. Why would you do that? So and that's been testified to that's the type of thing. It's testified in court, and you're like, nobody. After the ambulance departed for Sinai hospital homicide, major Stanley Branford and the media relations unit were notified of the incident. The two civilian witnesses Martina Washington Bernard Berkeley, they had already been ushered down the street away from the garage at ten thirty. They were transported down to headquarters to give statements. At that point the only people on scene patrol officers. The majority of them assigned to northwestern district located block and a half away on rice your town road. And in a matter of hours, many of them would be identified as either witnesses or involved in the shooting. Keith Davis junior. But they wouldn't be alone for long at ten forty. A m the force investigation team was notified of police involved shooting on the fifty two hundred block of Eleanor avenue and soon detective Michael Boyd was on his way..

"Why did you run into the garage? The door was open, and it was running around with a gun. And what if anything did you hear anything at all when you read into that garage? When around and take a row. At a time. No. Bye. Say needed the answers, really? Upon hearing the shots being fired. You see anything unusual at that time when? When. Did you go behind a refrigerator? I'm not sure if it was a fit radio what was but it was a lot of stuff in a road. Did you go behind whatever that stuff was? And why did you do that? I was in my face. Too much at that Shama fees. I'm my own pockets. Drake. I think I must have been in and out. Under remember, like cutting pool of what if anything were you feeling at that time. I don't think we should separate a conversation about Freddie, gray from a conversation about keep Davis junior. I wish personally that the Keith Davis junior case received as much national media attention as what happened with Freddie, gray. Because in some ways, it says even more about the system in Baltimore the relationship between the state attorney's office in the police department. In June, two thousand fifteen Baltimore was still reeling. Not just from Freddie, Gray's death. But the community uprising followed for two weeks. Baltimore's powers that be lost control the city to community outraged by the death of one of their own the governor sent in the national guard a week long citywide curfew took effect and more than five hundred people were arrested on your palm pill who you heard a few moments ago reported on the uprising RT America. And she remembers the unrelenting since of urgency on the streets during that time things had really reached its culmination in the streets. People were so upset they the people both for made it clear they weren't going to rest, and they weren't going to let the city rest until someone took charge and demonstrated..
