Mistrial in Freddie Gay killing case.

According to the NYT:
"The [criminal]  trial of the first Baltimore police officer in the death of Freddie Gray ended in a hung jury on Wednesday, an unexpected twist that complicates the cases against five other officers facing charges in a fatal police encounter that prompted violent unrest here last spring."  Look for a retrial or plea bargain next.  Prosecutors may offer a deal to this officer in return for his testimony against others.  Although there was violent unrest last Spring when the incident was revealed, there was no unrest this time.
