The police will claim Freddie Gray broke 80% of his own spine just, because, you know, he was mad about being arrested. And, also, tell us it’s just a minor fluke that none of the cops could explain anything afterwards and came about with sudden amnesia. No one will buy it. Not really. But the sad thing? Some people will try to. Some people will nod along mindlessly and say “Yes, the police story is true!” Even though, secretly, deep down, they know it’s complete bullshit. How sad. You’re hideous phonies. You don’t even have the refuge of delusion anymore. I’d write a play about you inept morons but, frankly, it would be boring and tedious and shit.
