BALTIMORE, MD - The streets of Baltimore may have calmed down, but things aren't even close to being over.

One of the six officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray is now arguing that the knife found on Gray was illegal even though State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby said it wasn't.

Because of all this, attorneys are asking Mosby to show them the knife that led to officer Edward Nero being charged with second degree assault, misconduct in office, and false imprisonment.

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has asked the Department of Justice to investigate the "patterns and practices" of the city's police department.

"I'm asking the Department of Justice to investigate if our police department has engaged in a pattern or practice of stops, searches or arrests that violate the Fourth Amendment," said Blake.

Blake also announced that the police department will have body cameras before the year's end.

"This will be the largest department in the country that would have a full body camera program, but we are working very hard to make sure that we fast track it, but at the same time make sure that we get it right. "
