RALEIGH, N.C. (CBSMiami/AP) — Former Gov. Jeb Bush said he trusts the legal process that resulted in charges against six Baltimore officers in the death of Freddie Gray.

Bush, a likely presidential candidate, was asked how a president can address rising anger toward police. Bush told reporters that a president can lead a conversation on how to fight the pockets of poverty that can result in dissatisfaction and anger.

Commenting on the Freddie Gray case in Baltimore, Bush said: “The process works” and “people are innocent until proven guilty.”

Bush met Friday morning with dozens of supporters at the North Carolina Republican Party headquarters in Raleigh as he edges closer to a decision on whether he’ll seek the GOP presidential nomination. He says he’ll decide soon.
