BALTIMORE —Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis criticized Wednesday a decision by three officers who had been charged in the Freddie Gray case to make an appearance at a gala last week.
Lt. Brian Rice, and Officers Edward Nero and Garrett Miller, were honored by the conservative media group Media Research Center. Davis said he doesn't condone their appearance.
"I look at this as an opportunity to take a look at our policy to make sure it is stringent enough that will preclude police officers from engaging in that type of off-duty activity," Davis said. "I was certainly disappointed by their appearance there, and any time a person in public safety appears for or with a group that society looks at as a fringe group, and the group is divisive and doesn't speak to the values of Baltimore, I think that's a problem."
