This is the lost post. I have summarized the main points, as only about 20% could be recovered. I am sorry.
I will be amazed if the commission does anything momentous or sufficient to discourage grandstanding prosecutors like Mosby in the future, even though such prosecurors are willing to ruin lives for political gain.
This is a direct result of relentless race-baiting from the news media, the mobs of activists, and politicians encouraging dangerous racial distrust as a means of keeping power.
Nero’s trial may be over, but the Freddie Gray/Ferguson/Martin-Zimmerman Ethics Train Wrecks keeps rolling, rolling along.
I don’t know why Mosby and the mayor just don’t hand the seven accused police officers over to the mob now and get it all over with in one bloodbath. It will save time and money.
State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby announced today that the six Baltimore police officers involved in the arrest and subsequent death of Freddie Gray have been charged with criminal charges second-degree murder, manslaughter, second-degree assault, vehicular manslaughter , and misconduct in office. I have no comment on that: I haven’t seen the evidence. I will assume the charges are justified base on what evidence there is.
Nonetheless, Mosby’s announcement and related statements from the steps of Baltimore’s War Memorial Building were unethical.
The only way this terrible trend will cease is if a credible, trusted, courageous national African-American leader states what I just did in clear and compelling terms, and stops it.
Baltimore should start with firing Mosby, if she doesn’t have the integrity and decency to resign. Then it should investigate to see how she reached her indefensible decision to prosecute the officers while the embers of burning buildings from the Freddie Gray riots were still glowing.
This is a much needed ruling. I hope it catches on.
Do you think that the ordinary people will just hurry home in the evenings and cower in their homes while crime takes over?
