3 CHICS STANDS WITH BALTIMORE STATE’S ATTORNEY MARILYN MOSBY. Don’t think for one minute that there isn’t a coordinated effort to SMEAR SA Mosby, because it is. And it began the moment she took to that podium May 1, 2015.
Ametia brought to my attention this ‘opinion’ piece in the Baltimore Sun.
Police charges in Freddie Gray case are incompetent at best
by Page Croyder
Updated May 5, 2015
Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby’s “quick” and “decisive” action in charging six Baltimore police officers a mere two weeks after the death of Freddie Gray reflects either incompetence or an unethical recklessness.
Alan Dershowitz, the noted defense attorney, sharply criticized her for using her charging power as “crowd control.” John Banzahf, a George Washington University law professor, predicted the eventual dismissal of most if not all the charges. The breadth of the charges, Ms. Mosby’s overreaching, is all-too-obvious.
Any prosecutor interested in the truth and in justice would have used all the tools at her disposal to find them. Ms. Mosby ignored them. She has one of the most experienced homicide prosecutors in the state of Maryland as chief of her homicide unit, but did not ask him to investigate. She had the police report all of one day before filing charges, her mind already made up. And she failed to make use of the grand jury to gather, probe and test the evidence before a group of average citizens.
Rush to judgment?
Freddie Gray was a healthy young man the 10 minutes BEFORE he encountered the Baltimore Police Department.
AFTER his encounter with them:
EIGHTY PERCENT OF HIS SPINE WAS SEVERED
and he DIED.
Rush to judgment?
Ms. Mosby’s ‘problem’, it seems to me, with this writer, is that she brought HER OWN INVESTIGATIVE TEAM.
She wasn’t dependent upon the Baltimore Police Department to feed her the usual bull of how the superhuman strength of a Black man had snapped HIS OWN SPINE.
Ms. Mosby’s team actually went into their investigation, trying to find the FACTS behind Freddie Gray’s MURDER.
And, that’s what it was.
He was MURDERED.
He was MURDERED in police custody…
AND, THEY STILL,…
By the time of the charges, HADN’T TOLD PEOPLE WHY THE HELL THEY PUT THEIR HANDS ON FREDDIE GRAY IN THE FIRST PLACE.
I kept on harping on it, and kept on asking WHAT WERE THE CHARGES?
I’m so glad Ms. Mosby didn’t forget that, and mentioned it in her press conference.
If you pray, pray for the continued safety of Ms. Mosby, her husband and children.
I honestly wish that the Attorney General would assign Ms. Mosby Federal Marshall protection.
The Fraternal Order of Police has already threatened Ms. Mosby’s husband. Who knows what they will do.
Those who seek the truth and try to do right are always under attack, especially by the Police in this country.
HOW DARE YOU try and hold them accountable for MURDERING A MAN IN CUSTODY THAT YOU HAD NO REASON TO ARREST IN THE FIRST DAMN PLACE!
They will be after Ms. Mosby, and we have to show our support for her doing WHAT’S RIGHT.
We have to show our support for her giving voice to those who just want people to be HELD ACCOUNTABLE.
And for those who claim and Elective Politics is ‘Respectability politics’…
Who think that their votes don’t matter?
Marilyn Mosby was ELECTED to her position.
Same as that rat Bob McCullough in Missouri.
The difference in how they do their jobs couldn’t be more obvious, can it?
