Point taken and I agree completely, but you should have stated "also the criminal element"!

He ran from the police. That amounts to probable cause for apprehension. Under Maryland law, the knife was not illegal. That being the case, Gray would have been released. The only issue worthy of investigation is negligence rising to criminal negligence by the police. Not securing Gray upon transport, and not providing emergency care upon request may rise to criminal negligence. But even that is yet to be explained by the police. As we saw in Ferguson, the rush to judgment proved wrong.

She parsed her words regarding the knife.

First, she never has described the knife in any detail, merely saying it was not in violation of Maryland law. Maybe, maybe not.

Second, as a prosecutor, she should know that Baltimore has its own statute regarding knives, and it is different than that of Maryland. She seemed blithely ignorant of that in her press conference.
