$6.4M Freddie Gray Death Settlement In Baltimore Gets Praise, Criticism


Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake’s decision to pay Freddie Gray’s family a $6.4 million civil settlement drew praise and criticism, with some Baltimore leaders saying the move will help heal the city and others calling it premature, reports the Baltimore Sun. Former Mayor Kurt Schmoke said the settlement was a “very positive development for the city.” “The mayor and her staff are trying to do all they can to heal the wounds in the community, and this is a step in the right direction,” said Schmoke, president of the University of Baltimore. “This settlement will give some people in the community at least some sense of justice.”
