Tonight’s question, greetings, and banter here. (More)
Today the Baltimore Sun debunked a rumor that Freddie Gray had a preexisting spinal injury, but the Washington Post published an anonymously-sourced report that Gray was “trying to injure himself” inside the police van. A WBAL reporter said the Post story did not fit descriptions of the autopsy given by police, but right-wing sites leaped on the Post story as proof Gray killed himself. Meanwhile, David Graham asked if police reactions sparked Monday’s rioting, and solidarity protests spread across the U.S. Will the Post story spark more right-wing conspiracy theories?
