I haven't followed this case much but I would think that you should have some responsibility for the people you are transporting. I am surprised the driver didn't get anything give that his injuries occurred during transport.

So, cops cuff restrain a person, then he dies while in vain with a broken neck? Your just stupid or what?

Also my mother had her back broken by police, it's a fact,

The policy to secure suspects in the back of the van was put in place a week before Freddie Grey and was put in place specifically because of how many injuries were being caused by police transportation in the city. Grey was shackled hand and foot, but not belted in. So he had no way of bracing his fall. He hit the interior wall with enough force to near severe his spine, fracture three vertebrae and leave the imprint of the rivets on the wall in his skull.

Sooo, yeah.

This isn't even the first guy that the Baltimore police neck snapped in transport either.

Ah, then especially so the driver should have responsibility over the well-being of the people being transported. After the first incident the drivers should have started getting into trouble for any injuries sustained during transport.

Lets actually make this more generic, anytime you are in custody the police should be responsible for your well-being/health. Any injuries sustained should be investigated and officers held accountable.

Burden of proof in the US legal system is on the prosecution to prove a crime was committed. From what I read the prosecution really dropped the ball on their end with a bit of circumstantial evidence that was easily explained by Gray being combative.

By the way, the police officer on trial was black too.
