Cop Cleared In Freddie Gray Case Gets $127,000

The Daily Caller reports:
In Baltimore, Maryland, the highest officer acquitted in the Freddie Gray case is slated to receive approximately $127,000 in back pay.

The city’s Board of Estimates is set to give Lt. Brian S. Rice $126,916, reports the Baltimore Sun. Rice was exonerated of manslaughter and misconduct, among other charges in the Freddie Gray case. According to the board schedule, the sum “represents the amount of salary that Mr. Rice would have earned for the period of May 1, 2015 through July 18, 2016.”

He deserves a lot more.
