It is especially ironic that in a country where unarmed black men are often killed before thay can even be booked, an attorney, speaking on behalf of 6 policemen, charged with the killing of another black man in Baltimore, complained about lack of due process because his clients were even charged for the crime. Charges were levied after the State's Attorney had received both the autopsy and the police report as well as having received her own staff's report. The 6 will now have to face a legal system which provides layers of safeguards for the rights of defendants. No wonder the attorney should feel incensed that any police officer should be treated in such a manner.
