Freddy Gray appeared to be in great pain and unable to walk just after being arrested causing people to claim his legs and neck were broken and he couldn’t walk.
Freddie Gray was arrested without incident. Given that he had run once already and no doubt started to give cops a problem once the illegal knife was discovered and started to be arrested they put him in a position Mosby described as a “leg lace”. The suspect is placed in the prone position, legs crossed, bent upwards.
Freddie was in that position for about 2 minutes.
No doubt there was some circulation cut off causing his legs to fall asleep. No doubt there was some pain but certainly nothing to get all up in arms about, nothing a couple of minutes of chillin’ wouldn’t fix.
Freddie was able to lift himself up, stand on the bumper of the van and enter it. His head and neck have a lot of mobility up and down, left and right throughout the video.
