Once again we've seen another faux riot based on the death of Freddie Gray who died while in Baltimore Police custody. Yet interesting facts about Gray have surfaced that tell us that it's always better to wait before getting riled up.
From the Washington Post.
BALTIMORE — A prisoner sharing a police transport van with Freddie Gray told investigators that he could hear Gray “banging against the walls” of the vehicle and believed that he “was intentionally trying to injure himself,” according to a police document obtained by The Washington Post. The prisoner, who is currently in jail, was separated from Gray by a metal partition and could not see him. His statement is contained in an application for a search warrant, which is sealed by the court. The Post was given the document under the condition that the prisoner not be named because the person who provided it feared for the inmate’s safety. The document, written by a Baltimore police investigator, offers the first glimpse of …
NEW YORK — Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took a feminist tone on Thursday. She told attendees at the sixth annual Women in The World Summit that “deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed” for the sake of giving women access to “reproductive health care and safe childbirth.” “Far too many women are denied access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth, and laws don’t count for much if they’re not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice — not just on paper,” Clinton said.

Yesterday on Andrea Mitchell's MSNBC show she spoke with Chris Chilla on Hillary's Money trail problem with the expected cover.
ANDREA MITCHELL: Hillary Clinton wrapping up a week that started in New Hampshire and ended at Tina Brown's Women in the World. But ended also fending off attacks from the Benghazi Select Committee and that new book, Clinton Cash.
Joining me now to sort it all out for our Daily Fix, Chris Cillizza, MSNBC contributor, founder of Washington Post's Fix blog, and New York Times political reporter Jeremy Peters, right here.
Well, Chris Cillizza, it's been the week that was and Hillary Clinton had a tough time with the Cash book. But truth be told, having gone through it last night once we got the book yesterday, there are a lot of holes. There is the question of, how do you connect the policy that she was pursuing as a secretary of state with the allegation that money was being contributed to the charity or speeches were being booked for Bill C…
One has to wonder why Hillary is running yet again when it would appear everything - age, scandals, Bill Clinton as first man, are against her.
Face it, the democrats thought they had found their messiah in Barack Obama only to have him to be a version of deceased mayor Marion Berry - without the crack (although a case could be made for that).
Obama has been a complete disaster for Democrats, his approval ratings still reasonable, but nevertheless the "thrill is gone" from the leg of Chris Matthews. So why Hillary, why now?
Well most of it is simply Clinton audacity and pride. After all she's still smarting from being chumped by Obama in 2008. I mean she was a shew in for the nomination until Obama came in from left field and stole the show.
Yeah she got a consolation prize in getting the SOS job, but look at the disaster that was. Democrats seem to be punting at this point, much like they did with John Kerry in 2004. What I mean is they would seem to allow the GOP…
