Rep. Elijah Cummings, who has represented most Baltimore City and Howard County in congress for the past 20 years, “urges Baltimore residents to respect the outcome of the trial [of Officer Edward Nero] regardless of the verdict,” according to the Baltimore Sun.

The trial is the second for a Baltimore police officer charged in connection with the death of Freddie Gray. The officer faces charges of second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and misconduct in office.

Nero opted for a bench trial, which means Judge Barry Williams will decide the verdict, which will be delivered Monday.

Cummings made a similar plea before the outcome of the trial of Officer William Porter, who allegedly failed to buckle Gray in the police van. (The jury failed to reach any unanimous verdicts, and the case ended in a mistrial.)

  1. He is so far to the right anymore, saying this and backing Hillary. I supposed he’s going to be saying Freddie Grey was a scary super predator and everyone would be afraid of him if they saw him. Shame.

  2. Yeah he ALREADY knows what the judge is going to do. He knows the mayor will let the city burn to the ground again. That’s why they will not read the verdict today, because Baltimore is on a world wide stage with the Preakness Saturday. He isn’t fooling anyone, the track would be burned to the ground Saturday if the verdict came in on Friday.

  3. What the hell has he done that is noticeable in the neighborhoods he represents. I can’t tell.
