*UPDATE* – The Curious Case Of Freddie Gray’s Transport Van Companion – Baltimore Prosecutor, Marilyn Mosby, Manipulating The Media…

On April 29th the Washington Post ran an explosive article highlighting information from a passenger who was inside the transport vehicle at the same time Freddie Gray was driven toward central booking.  According to the Washington Post source: Freddie Gray was intentionally “trying to injure himself“.

On April 30th local Baltimore media outlet WBAL-TV introduced Donta Allen, a person they claimed was the passenger in the transport vehicle.

Baltimore Prisoner from van 2

However, THEY ARE NOT THE SAME PERSON.

Our research indicates the office of Baltimore State Attorney, Marilyn Mosby, used or allowed one of her deputy State Attorneys, Janice Bledsoe (who was in charge of the investigation as assigned by Marilyn Mosby), to willfully and intentionally place a false story using Bledsoe’s lover, WBAL-TV reporter Jayne Miller, and thereby create a fictitious story to imply Donta Allen as the passenger outlined in the Washington Post story.

Yes, you read that correctly.

The full story:  The Washington Post does not specifically name the passenger who heard Freddie Gray attempting to injure himself.  However, they do provide details as to the identity – details we can independently confirm (emphasis mine).

A prisoner sharing a police transport van with Freddie Gray told investigators that he could hear Gray “banging against the walls” of the vehicle and believed that he “was intentionally trying to injure himself,” according to a police document obtained by The Washington Post.

The prisoner, who is currently in jail, was separated from Gray by a metal partition and could not see him. His statement is contained in an application for a search warrant, which is sealed by the court. The Post was given the document under the condition that the prisoner not be named because the person who provided it feared for the inmate’s safety.

The document, written by a Baltimore police investigator, offers the first glimpse of what might have happened inside the van. It is not clear whether any additional evidence backs up the prisoner’s version, which is just one piece of a much larger probe.

[…]   Capt. Eric Kowalczyk, chief spokesman for the Baltimore Police Department, declined to comment on the affidavit, citing the ongoing investigation. The person who provided the document did so on condition of anonymity.

[…]  The third stop was to put the other prisoner — a 38-year-old man accused of violating a protective order — into the van. The van was then driven six blocks to the Western District station. Gray was taken from there to a hospital, where he died April 19.

[…]  The prisoner, who is in jail, could not be reached for comment. No one answered the phone at his house, and an attorney was not listed in court records.  (link)

We can confirm a 38-year-old Black Male was picked up and transported in the same 04/12/15 timeframe as Freddie Gray for “Violate Exparte/Prot Order || Violation Of A Protective Order” – Listed in BPD arrest records.

This aligns with the Washington Post article outline as reported last Wednesday (04/29).

The following day, April 30th, WBAL-TV reporter Jayne Miller presented an initially exclusive interview with the man she claimed was this passenger.

However, the man she presented, and named as Donta Allen: • Was not in jail. • Was 22-years-old. • Was not picked up for violating a protective order; and nothing about his description aligned with the prior report.

BALTIMOREThe other man who was loaded into the police transport van carrying Freddie Gray spoke out Thursday for the first time.

West Baltimore resident Donta Allen, 22, was the second man loaded into the police van near the end of the run on April 12.

He raised controversy with what he told police because he told them something he really he had to speculate on because he wouldn’t have known for sure.

“On the morning of April 12, I went into a store right here at Penn/North Avenue to get a cigarette,” Allen said.

Allen was picked up by city police at the corner of Pennsylvania and North avenues on a suspicion of stealing. The city’s camera system recorded the van that arrived and picked up Allen. It was the same van that was carrying Gray.  (link)

Immediately national media reports began conflating the two “passengers” and claiming the Washington Post passenger was ‘walking back his statements’.

Like many people we were initially confused; and despite the age difference we thought Donta Allen was the Washington Post passenger quoted in the police affidavit. We were wrong.

Thanks to some additional research, digging and luckily with some anonymous Baltimore police talking on camera last night, we were able to connect the dots.

Donta Allen was not the passenger in the transport van as outlined by the Washington Post.  Actually, Donta Allen was never in the van WITH Freddie Gray at all.

Despite Donta claiming on CNN with Don Lemon that he arrived in the Baltimore Booking Station “while overhearing police talking about Freddie Gray not breathing”, there’s absolutely no indication he was ever there on 4/12/15.  Nor is there an arrest record, or a booking record, for him on that date.

UPDATE 5/2/15 @2:25pm :  CNN’s Don Lemon was initially confused and needed to reach out to the Baltimore prosecutor to confirm the identity (CNN TRANSCRIPT):

DON LEMON: I spoke to him [Donta] yesterday. What people didn’t realize, I was out here talking to him yesterday [Thursday 4/30]. No one knew who he was. The records at the police station show that he’s still in jail.

BROOKE BALDWIN: He was still in jail. But he’s not.

LEMON: And he’s not. And that was the issue of getting it on yesterday. Because we had it yesterday, we had it first, but we want to be — I’d rather be accurate than first. And so, today, when we spoke with the prosecutor, they said, indeed, it is him. You’ll hear his story tonight.

BALDWIN: OK, Don Lemon, great coverage. Thank you so much my friend.

LEMON: Thank you, Brooke.”  (link)

As you can see, a confused Don Lemon reaches out to “the prosecutor” (likely Marilyn Mosby or perhaps Janice Bledsoe) and the Baltimore prosecutor confirms Donta Allen as the witness passenger in the transport van.  Which leads to this confusing video:

Despite the brutal contradictions between what is factually known, and the claims by Donta in the video above, there is actually a way to reconcile them. Donta never saw Freddie Gray, Donta is projecting himself, via a belief into the story, based entirely on the flawed assumptions delivered by the pundits doing the questioning.

SO WHO IS HE?  Original reports in the Baltimore media when the Freddie Gray story first broke, mentioned that two people were in the alley when approached by officers.  Two people took off running in opposite directions.  One person, Freddie Gray, was immediately caught.  The other, was caught later in the day and released without incident.

All indications are that Donta Allen was this second person who fled, was caught/questioned, and then released.   There is no evidence of Donta Allen ever being in custody on 04/12/15.

So how did this story come to the media, and why would the originator of Donta Allen to the public, WBAL-TV reporter Jayne Miller, sell it?

It is not coincidental Donta Allen appeared the day following the explosive Washington Post story.

Indeed by all accounts if the Washington Post story was accurate it seriously undermined the case against the Baltimore officers.  Especially given the medical examiner stating that Freddie Gray’s injuries occurred INSIDE the transport vehicle during transit and not when he was stopped by police.

This is where State Attorney Marilyn Mosby’s main Deputy Attorney and lead investigator, Janice Bledsoe, comes in to play:

RE: MARILYN MOSBY […]  Among other charges involving campaign contributions and Mosby’s marriage to City Council member Nick Mosby, the FOP said in a letter, “These conflicts … include the lead prosecutor’s connections with members of the local media. Based on several nationally televised interviews, these reporters are likely to be witnesses in any potential litigation regarding this incident.”

[…]  Janice Bledsoe is the deputy state’s attorney who led the Freddie Gray investigation.

Jayne Miller, investigative reporter for WBAL-TV, confirmed to a Sun reporter Friday that she is in a relationship with Bledsoe. (link)

It appears almost certain that Donta Allen was established then leaked to reporter Jane Miller by her girlfriend Deputy SA Janice Bledsoe in an effort to deflect attention from the concerns of the Washington Post story.

If you watch Donta’s various interviews you can see how he’s making it up as he goes along.  In addition, according to the officers now speaking out, both Donta Allen and Freddie Gray were known LEO informants (snitches) as a consequence of their past drug encounters and arrests.

That is why despite Donta saying he was arrested (04/12 during the transport to central booking) there is no record for his arrival or arrest.  He is playing a role and selling a story that benefits his community and those who would pressure him, ergo himself.

Whether reporter Jayne Miller knew she was presenting a fraud (duped), or was a willing partner to the efforts of her girlfriend Janice Bledsoe (co-conspirators) are unknown variables.  How else would Ms. Miller find Donta Allen were it not for her partner Ms. Bledsoe.

Marilyn Mosby 2However, someone needs to expose this fraud ASAP.  Donta Allen was not in the paddy wagon with Freddie Gray – and his media story is false.

The actual witness to Freddie Gray’s activity while en-route to the booking facility is the 38-year-old Black Male arrested on 4/12/15 for charges of violating a protective order – and accurately outlined in the original Washington Post article.

Meanwhile if Head Baltimore Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby knew what her foot soldier Asst. Deputy Attorney Janice Bledsoe was doing, well, she should be immediately recused, reprimanded and perhaps even fired or disbarred.

    The reason why this is being done, why This “Donta” character is being used has to do with the overall strategy of the prosecutor. She’s not trying to convince a jury, she’s trying to incite a mob (nationally and locally) to intimidate a potential jury into fear based (although wrongful) convictions. She knows these officers haven’t done anything wrong here. This is her only play. The mob doesn’t need truth. They don’t need facts, they just need red meat. And this “Donta” character was pushed out in front of the cameras to serve up the first course.

      BD – Most agencies have a protocol that if a prisoner is suspected to have ingested drugs, the officers are to call EMS and transport the prisoner to the hospital immediately. Swallowing heroin in any sizeable dose can be fatal. As far as the officer on Hannity and The Kelley File, I suspect the officer is the same person.

      Based on my experience, I believe the officer is young, excitable and tends to exaggerate. According to him, nine out of ten drug suspects chew their stash and then chase it with some bottled water. Really??? The ER would be packed with prisoners that OD’ed from swallowing their stash and their arresting officers.

      I hate to say it, I would take much of what the young officer says with a big grain of salt. He is trying to help his friends. I get it. I’ve seen this kind of behavior many times over the years. It rarely helps. In this case it is especially sad as he is being used by Fox News. SMH

      The people who should be out there presenting the officers’ side of the case are their attorneys. Who I wish they would get out there and start talking to the press. If they would take the forefront like they should, then maybe this young kid would not feel the necessity to be out there destroying his career. It is so, so sad. SMH

    Regarding the officers who detained and loaded Gray – one part of their defense could/should be”: “how would they possibly know the driver would NOT immediately and directly go the short distance to the WS cop shop”. Based on this reasonable assumption and long historical practice of not strapping in – they followed precedent. Now whether the ‘new’ requirement to strap transportee’s in was indeed fully communicated including required briefings etc. remains to be seen.

    Lt. Rice maybe able to refer to the Sgt.’s welfare checking as seemingly appropriate and his lack of proximity to Gray in his defense.

      The biggest crime should be not following procedure which would be a minor disciplinary action within the PD. This is nonsense.

      However if it is law, then the driver is responsible for moving the van and would be driver’s duty to ensure all passengers were safely strapped in before moving with an insecure load. (As with truckers)

    An observation on the heroin purported to be in Gray’s system. It seems that he preliminary finding would be from a urine analysis and it would have been from a urine collection bag in the hospital as Gray was in the hospital and catheterized for 7 days before he died. Heroin is detected as morphine in a urine test so Gray would have possibly received morphine during his surgery and as a drip for the entire 7 days. So a finding of heroin in a preliminary toxicology report would not necessarily be good or bad for the defense.

          well, a catheter has a series of clamps that stops/starts the flow of urine (in stages if you will) as the tubing continues down the tubing and into the bag. (This may be too much, but, when you first insert the catheter, there is just a length of tubing with a clamp on it. When you are sure of proper placement, the immediate tubing with it’s clamp immediately fills with urine. Then you add additional tubing with the bag) So, urine can be removed from the bladder almost immediately from just the tube. (before it ever gets to the bag)

        Now I can’t remember if an ambulance met the police van, or if he was taken directly to the station. If an ambulance, they will need to confirm that he wasn’t given a painkiller en route. If they did, it would come up as an opiate. Although I doubt it, because if he was unresponsive, a further depressant would be contraindicated.

          AND for all those concerned about morphine. An unconscious patient does not automatically get pain meds. In fact there is never a “morphine drip” (this is the 21st century) There is no administration of morphine unless the patient is awake and requesting it. Morphine has the ability to kill you from slowing respiration, so unless the patient is responsive enough to ask for it (or in the case of frequent doses, a push-button pump device dispenses it “in room”, but only in small doses, that the patient must be alert enough to hit the button.)

I was hallucinating from whatever it was so I could have it wrong.

The prisoner, who is in jail, could not be reached for comment.” http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/crime/prisoner-in-van-said-freddie-gray-was-banging-against-the-walls-during-ride/2015/04/29/56d7da10-eec6-11e4-8666-a1d756d0218e_story.html?tid=sm_tw1

        This link shows a 38 year old person was arrested April 12.

        The very next day after the Washington Post article of April 29, on April 30, a 22 year old man appeared, said his name was Donta Allen and that he was the one the Washington Post was talking about…even though the Washington Post had clearly said the person was “38,” and then he told us he did not say what the Washington Post printed.

        However, there is “another” Donta (Maurice) Allen who is the same age as the man listed in the Washington Post article, and he is still in prison. So is this 38 year old Donta Allen (in prison) the “same person” the Washington Post said had to remain nameless? It could be…if…he had been released from prison on his murder charge early, and then re-arrested on April 12. This is why I wish we could find out if he had been released at some point before April 12…we’d know for sure that he is the true “Donta Allen” that was picked up and rode in the van with Freddie Gray…the guy who said he could hear Gray “banging against the walls” of the vehicle and believed that he “was intentionally trying to injure himself.”

          Actually, the other Donta is 37. Plus, based on the facility he’s in – a maximum security prison- I doubt he was out any time recently. He’d probably still be in jail. BIg coincidence, though. It is very curious.

    The 22 year old Donta Allen said it took “20” minutes to get to the police station…instead of “4 or 5” minutes…

    In the video interview with Jayne Miller/WBAL-TV, there was a huge discrepancy in the amount of time getting to the police station after Donta was placed in the van. I didn’t pick up on that until I read the transcript of the video here:
    http://www.nbcnews.com/id/57315130/ns/msnbc-all_in_with_chris_hayes/t/all-chris-hayes-thursday-april-th/
    Show: ALL IN with CHRIS HAYES
    Date: April 30, 2015
    Guest: Jayne Miller, Jason Downs, Bobby Scott

    Start with Jayne “cutting Donta off in mid-sentence”:
    (ALLEN is talking) I knew Freddie Gray was in the van when I got to the police station and then they going to try —
    MILLER: No. OK. Let me — I just want to keep this focused on the
    four minutes. You were in the van four or five minutes with Mr. Gray.
    ALLEN: I was in the van approximately up to 20 minutes — 15, 20
    minutes at the most.

    Does anyone else find that interesting, or am I missing something here?

    There’s a problem. The 38 year old man was arrested at 1:40 pm and Gray’s predicament took place in the morning around 9AM.
