Baltimore State Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby today dropped all charges against the three remaining Baltimore police officers charged in the death of punk Freddie Gray.
The question now, will Baltimore residents burn down the rest of the city?
Mosby jumped the gun and empaneled a grand jury before the investigation into the death of Freddie Gray was complete. Legal commentators across the spectrum said she should have waited and that the charges were a cheap political ploy by a prosecutor who had never tried a criminal case. She was a real estate attorney before she was elected in an act of extreme affirmative action by Baltimore’s voters.
Mosby held a press conference on the street and remains defiant.
Several of the officers have already filed lawsuits against the City and against Mosby personally and a very liberal professor at nearby Georgetown Law School has filed a brief seeking her disbarment.
This will likely end poorly for Mosby. But then, she is a Democrat in Baltimore so she could end up being a U.S. Senator.
