Gershon, Willoughby, Getz & Smith, LLC Weighs in on the Recent Baltimore Riots


Baltimore, MD -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/02/2015 -- According to reports, the funeral of Freddie Gray sparked riots within the Baltimore community because he died as a victim of excessive force while in police custody. After police arrested Freddie Gray, he suffered from possible spinal cord injuries and passed away in a hospital. As residents of the Baltimore area, the law firm of Gershon, Willoughby, Getz & Smith, LLC were aware of the personal outrage and greed that swept the community as theft and violence spread across the city. When weighing in on the issue, the lawyers felt that the unfair police profiling that led to Gray's death could relate to the deprivation of quality healthcare to minorities and low-income families.
