    Just wanted to also say, that another reason why they dislike Ms. Mosby is look at the timing of this case. In and out. She went in, presented the evidence, got the indictment.

    We were constantly told by the apologists for McCullough and that incompetent in the Eric Garner case, that we just didn’t ‘understand’ how the wheels of Justice were supposed to work. That them hemming and hawing and drawing it out for forever and a day – well, that wasn’t them trying to NOT get an indictment, and how dare we question their ‘ integrity’.

    Then comes along Ms. Mosby.

    Bringing charges – DONE.
    Going before Grand Jury – DONE
    Getting an indictment – DONE

    All, within, pretty much, a blink of an eye.

    Which only points out what was obvious to all of us out here: that McCullough and the incompetent in Long Island DID NOT WANT TO GET INDICTMENTS IN THE FIRST PLACE.

  4. FIERCE! That’s why they’re mad.

    Marilyn Mosby Chica!

  5. rikyrah says:

    it’s unbelievable that we should be happy about an indictment. this isn’t even a conviction.

    Go, Ms. Mosby!

    • Ametia says:

      You know it’s true. And the motions are yet to come for the slimey 6!


    • eliihass says:

      You’re right Rikyrah, and it’s pretty pathetic. But for right now, we’ll take what we’ve got with this incredible young woman finally turning around a system that would never even had indicted them to begin with.

    Injustice only occurs when you continue to stay blind. Let’s take the blinders off of lady justice and force her to see.

    • Ametia says:

      So much for Lady Justice being blind. Here, she’s not only got her eyes wide open, they’re shooting lasers out like Superman. I never really understood how being blindfolded meant you were being impartial, and anyway, a bit of research suggests that this idea of Justice wearing a blindfold only dates back to the 15th century. Before that, she had her eyes wide open.

  7. I love her—>State Attorney Marilyn Mosby!

    • eliihass says:

      It’s not so much that she ‘wants’ indictments as much as that she knows for a fact that crimes were committed by these officers, and that indictments are in order.

  8. Ametia says:

    See, if Bob McColloch had seriously wanted to indict Darren Wilson, he could have gotten it.

    He didn’t want to, and Michael Brown Jr.’s death still goes without JUSTICE!

    • sunshine616 says:

      So when a jury chooses to not indict because a prosecutor chose not to fight, we’re supposed to accept and move on. When there is an indictment because the prosecutor did their job, now it’s a damn problem. Justice system sux, jury biased, prosecutor biased, cops are saints. Gtfoh!!!

    • eliihass says:

      Bob McCollouch’s process of non-indictment is what happens when the law is viewed through the biases and myopic lenses of a racist prosecutor, who is unwilling to explore or consider other perspectives and especially not any that take into consideration the overarching circumstances or the humanity of the dead victim he was supposed to be acting on behalf of.

      This is was precisely what one Miss Michelle Robinson argued against as a young law student when she asked how exactly these slippery laws designed and taught the way they were by out of touch ‘elite’ lawyers like Alan Dershowitz, would ever protect or work in favor of people who had no money and nobody to advocate for them – like those living in her South Side Chicago community..and Ferguson and Baltimore.

    Why the fuck does the reporter ask if she’s going to recuse herself? GTFOH

  11. GRAND JURY INDICTMENT of 6 Baltimore Police officers in the death of #FreddieGray is a teachable moment for Bob McCulloch. This is how it’s done!

    For your perusal

    Grand Jury

    A panel of citizens that is convened by a court to decide whether it is appropriate for the government to indict (proceed with a prosecution against) someone suspected of a crime

  13. Oh, the white tears on @CNN about the indicted officers. Now @MarilynMosbyEsq is edgy? GTFOH @CNN

    The Economist explains

    How a grand jury works
    America is one of the few countries to use grand juries. The Fifth Amendment requires that the federal legal system uses grand juries for all capital and “infamous” crimes. Grand juries are meant to weed out ill-conceived prosecutions and are particularly useful in cases of terrorism, public corruption and organised crime. Most Americans know little about the process, as the proceedings are not open to the public or to the media. Such secrecy is meant to ensure that investigations are free from outside influences and that witnesses are more forthcoming. State rules are different: only around half of the states use grand juries. And practices can vary widely. The size of a grand jury, for example, differs from place to place: in Missouri, it was made up of 12 people. In New York some 23 people sat on the jury.

    In an ordinary trial there are two attorneys (one for each side), a presiding judge and a jury of 12 people who must convict beyond a reasonable doubt. Grand juries have an easier job. All they decide is if there is enough evidence to bring a case to trial—they do not determine whether or not someone is guilty or innocent. Unlike in ordinary trials no judge oversees a grand jury. Instead the presiding officer is the prosecuting attorney, who also instructs the jury on the law. This means that the prosecuting lawyer has a lot of sway. In 1985 Sol Wachtler, a former chief judge in New York, told the New York Daily News that “district attorneys now have so much influence on grand juries that ‘by and large’ they could get them to indict a ham sandwich.”

    Nearly three decades on it is still rare for a grand jury not to return an indictment. According to one calculation, federal attorneys brought 162,000 cases before federal grand juries in 2010. Only 11 did not result in an indictment.
