Before a plagarism scandal broke out, the Republican National Convention reacted to the news of the latest verdict in the Baltimore police trials for Freddie Gray’s death.
The first night of the Cleveland convention to nominate Donald Trump was branded as addressing law and order, otherwise known as, “Make America Safe Again.” It came on the day that Lt. Brian Rice was acquitted on charges he faced in connection with Gray’s 2015 death. According to the New York Daily News, Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. brought the Baltimore news further into the national spotlight.
“There is some good news out of Baltimore, Maryland, as Lt. Brian Rice was acquitted on all charges,” he said, drawing applause from the Quicken Loans Arena crowd. He also brought up Marilyn Mosby, calling her an “activist state’s attorney.”
He further criticized Black Lives Matter, saying that protests in Baltimore and Ferguson amounted to “anarchy.”
