On Tuesday's edition of "The Sean Hannity Show," Hannity took it upon himself to ensure that a death like Freddie Gray's doesn't happen again.

"I don't know why the kid ran. What is the mindset of someone, they see a cop and they gotta run? Maybe his record had something to do with it," Hannity said. " What happened between the time he ran and the time he got in that truck and the time he got some medical care, we don't know what happened yet. It's suspicious to me. But I'm not rushing to judgment."
