More than one black man in Baltimore has run from cops over the years. In April 2015, it was Freddie Gray, whose death in police custody touched off demonstrations and riots.

Back in 2007 it was Jay Cook, who died after a foot chase by Baltimore cops.  When his parents asked why, they faced a wall of lies and bureaucracy and evasion that reached all the way to the courts.
