(CNN) -- In an open letter to Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby, the city police union's president said that "none of the officers involved are responsible for the death of (Freddie) Gray." "To the contrary, at all times, each of the officers diligently balanced their obligations to protect Mr. Gray and discharge their duties to protect the public," wrote Baltimore City Fraternal Order of Police President Gene Ryan. Ryan asked in the letter, which came out just before Mosby announced that six officers face charges in Gray's death, that a special independent prosecutor be appointed to look into the case.
