The Baltimore police officer who initiated the arrest of Freddie Gray, Jr. has had his own share of problems. In 2012, the now 41-year-old officer, Brian Rice, was suspended after a mental health breakdown and his son’s mother and her husband filing a restraining order against him. Though the request for protection was later denied, his son’s mother’s husband details a pattern of intimidation and harassment.

The Guardian U.K.. reports: 

The Baltimore police lieutenant charged with the manslaughter of Freddie Gray allegedly threatened to kill himself and the husband of his ex-girlfriend, during incidents that led to him being disciplined and twice having his guns confiscated.

Brian Rice, who pursued and arrested Gray after the 25-year-old “caught his eye” on 12 April, was reportedly given an administrative suspension after being hospitalised for a mental health evaluation when he warned he was preparing to shoot himself in April 2012.

    Why are they just ignoring the mental state of these police officers and allowing them to run wild in the streets? He should have been dismissed from the force back in 2012. A law suite should be filed against the entire city of Baltimore specifically the Police department due to negligence in keeping criminals on payroll and allowing them to patrol the streets.

  2. Since Rice started the pursuit of Freddie Gray as a result costing him his life, this police officer should be charged with “First Degree Murder. Furthermore, he should not have been on the force in regards to his past and present behavior.
