Baltimore States Attorney Marilyn Mosby traveled to St. Louis, Missouri, Tuesday and joined other black, female prosecutors to speak out against a political and law enforcement establishment that she says has attacked her, undermined her work for reform, and sought to push her from office.
Mosby pledged solidarity with St. Louis top prosecutor Kim Gardner who filed a federal lawsuit alleging political attacks by her own city leaders and police union.
The vitriol, the personal and the professional attacks, particularly against black, female prosecutors is unprecedented, Mosby told the crowd. The individuals making decisions about whos going to be charged, what theyre going to be charged with, what sentence recommendations theyre going to make 95% of those prosecutors in this country are white; 79% are white men. And as women of color, we represent 1% of all elected prosecutors in this country. Our very existence challenges the status quo.
In her op-ed and appearance Tuesday, Mosby said she has faced opposition to her efforts to bring criminal justice reform to Baltimore. She wrote in the op-ed that the Maryland States Attorneys Association opposed legislation she backed to to erase old convictions in cases brought by the corrupt Gun Trace Task Force. In St. Louis, she said Gov. Larry Hogan has undermined her by including money in his budget for the attorney general to hire more staff and prosecute crimes in the city.
My governor has even gone as far as to provide my prosecutorial discretion to the attorney general, which I believe is an outrageous and undemocratic power grab, she told the crowd.
Mosby has come under fire from the police union ever since she charged six officers in the 2015 death of Freddie Gray. None were convicted.

She is an absolute disgrace.
I will never forget her kissing the a$$ of the black mob that day, giving a "Dis is our moment!" speech.
Just progressive, black female prosecutors, Ms. Mosby. And your records speak for themselves.
Low-hanging fruit skank.
Try being competent rather than petulant.
It’s about incompetence.
Not about black. Not about female. Not about backlash
Playing the race\woman-card eh? Meh...
She and the rest those incompetent crooks didn't get incompetence or the crookedness by being black. And she hasn't even seen a backlash yet.
Way out of proportion to the immense amount of corruption by women of color in authoritative positions.
How is her hair-do not cultural appropriation [a prosecutable hate-crime for SJWs] ?
When in doubt, manufacture a fake racial scandal
We could care less about race.
We care a lot about quality.
Lady, you and quality are on opposite sides of the universe.
STFU, and shove your race crap up your you know what.
Black, Gay, Trans, etc. etc. has become the get out of responsibility for incompetence card for all that use them.
More like she is just cuffing incompetent. With so many deserving and highly motivated youth, and particularly females, of color out there, Affirmative Action ends up selecting the least motivated and whiniest bunch of losers for their programs for “advancement” of the “underprivileged”.
Baltimore has a mindset that has to be shaken loose before it can rejoin civilized society.
“I’m bein suries ya’ll, dis is ****ed up what you be doin!
Is she one of Soros’ “Restorative Justice” plants?
Right! She looks like Julia Roberts.
(Yes, that's actually it.)
She’s as dumb as the one in ChiCongo...
Another Affirmative Action government hire heard from.
