Five of the six officers involved in the Freddie Gray case  face internal discipline. Now the police union is responding. 

Baltimore's Fraternal Order of Police released a statement saying, "The only losers in the decision to continue persecuting these five officers are the citizens of Baltimore City."

The statement also says that the potential disciplinary action will make officers "hesitant to exercise judgment when interacting with the public." 

An independent investigation by Montgomery County Police could lead to the termination of three of the officers and the suspension of two others.
