Caesar Goodson

"Goodson is the only officer among the six charged to refuse... to provide a statement to police. All of the officers have pleaded not guilty."
Goodson has opted for a bench (judge) trial. Cops do well when they choose a judge rather than jury.
Goodson has much to fear in this case. His attorney should deflect some liability and responsibility to the people involved in the vehicle modifications which caused Freddie Grays' death.
Goodson used the illegal modifications to inflict injury. A common practice of some police offcers.
The fleet manager for the Baltimore Police Department bears considerable responsibility for ordering, installing and using sub-standard, non-complying, illegal vehicle modifications.
Will such modifications continue?
I have notified the Maryland Department of Public Safety and the State Police Fleet Manager about these risks and been mostly ignored AFAIK.
