After three of the Baltimore police officers who were cleared in connection with Freddie Gray’s death made headlines for appearing at a conservative group’s gala in DC, the head of the department said he was “disappointed” in the move.
Lt. Brian Rice, and Officers Edward Nero and Garrett Miller appeared at the gala of the Media Research Center, which says it aims to expose liberal bias. They were honored at the event and given a standing ovation.
According to WBAL-TV, Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said he is reviewing the policy that allows officers to engage in such appearances off-duty.
Davis said it is a “problem” when a police officer “appears for or with a group that society looks at as a fringe group, and the group is divisive and doesn’t speak to the values of Baltimore.”
