Story | May 5, 2015 | 1:42 PMOn April 12, Freddie Gray was severely injured in an encounter with the police, suffering a severed spine and damaged voice box. He died a week later. He was not the first detainee to experience severe spinal injuries while in police custody. Since 2004, at least two others have suffered severe spinal injuries while detained by Baltimore police officers. And he is not the first Baltimore resident to be mistreated by the police—the city has paid out over $6 million in police-related cases since 2011, and between 2010 and 2014 more than 100 people have died in police custody.
