    The long and winding saga of Freddie Gray has mostly drawn to a close, but that doesn’t mean that the topic has dried up in Social Justice Warrior circles. At the home of all things liberal – Vox – there is a fresh round of outrage regarding the officers involved in the incident. This one sub-header seems to capture the mood perfectly: “It’s even clearer now than after Freddie Gray’s death: The Baltimore Police Department is a disaster” So what is it that has everyone up in arms this time? As the Baltimore Sun reports, the officers who were found...
  • US to release report criticizing Baltimore police force

    Baltimore police officers routinely discriminate against blacks, repeatedly use excessive force and are not adequately held accountable for misconduct, according to a harshly critical Justice Department report being presented Wednesday. The report, the culmination of a yearlong investigation into one of the country’s largest police forces, also found that officers make large numbers of stops — mostly in poor, black neighborhoods — with dubious justification and unlawfully arrest citizens for speech deemed disrespectful. Physical force is used unnecessarily, including against the mentally disabled, and black pedestrians and drivers are disproportionately searched during stops, the report says. The Justice Department released...
  • Court Must Dismiss Police Lawsuits Against Marilyn Mosby (says Michael Brown lawyer)

    Lawsuits filed by Baltimore police officers against Baltimore State Attorney Marilyn Mosby must be dismissed, according to the law. The United States Supreme Court ruled that prosecutors acting within the scope of their duties in pursuing criminal prosecution are immune from civil suits.The role of a prosecutor in a criminal case is to seek justice and represent the People of a given jurisdiction against a person charged with committing a criminal offense. This is exactly what Marilyn Mosby did when the officers involved in Freddie Gray’s death, which the medical examiner ruled a homicide, were indicted by a grand jury....
  • Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby Just Accused Police of Another Crime Without Any Evidence

    On Wednesday, Mosby was back in front of the cameras where she made extraordinary shocking allegations against the Baltimore Police Department, again. A defiant Mosby refused to take any accountability for her rush to judgment in charging the six police officers just over one year ago. Instead, she chose to blame the Baltimore police investigators for her inability to sustain a single criminal charge against the accused officers. Mosby accused investigators of intentionally trying to harm the state’s ability to bring charges, even going so far as to claim investigators committed a felony by manufacturing evidence in the case. Yes,...

    I thought it unnecessary to add to Paul’s analysis below of the dismissal of the remaining charges in the Freddie Gray case in Baltimore, but then I watched Baltimore DA Marilyn Mosby’s press conference announcing the decision. You have to see it, not to believe it. She attacks the police. She attacks the judge. She says her case against the officers is solid, but is dismissing it anyway because the (black) judge is biased. And more. Then she closes by saying she won’t take any questions because of the civil litigation she faces for bringing the case. I can’t believe...

    Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby is going from prosecutor to civil defendant in connection with the case of the death of Freddie Gray. On Wednesday, Mosby announced that charges against three officers still facing trial were being dropped. Mosby gave only a statement, but had to leave without taking questions because five of the officers in the case have filed lawsuits against her. Officers Garrett Miller, Edward Nero and William Porter as well as Sgt. Alicia White and Lt. Brian Rice are suing Mosby and Maj. Samuel Cogen of the Baltimore Sheriff's Office. Cogen was the law enforcement officer who...

    Marilyn Mosby’s cases against six Baltimore police officers in the death of Freddie Gray has been by all accounts an utter failure, but the state’s attorney was nevertheless defiant on Wednesday when she announced her office is dropping charges against the three officers who still faced trial. The 36-year-old Mosby, who became a media darling last year when she announced charges against the officers for the arrest and death of Gray, complained during a press conference that the deck was stacked against her and her team of prosecutors. “While to this day we stand by the decisions, the legal theories,...

    Freddie Gray case: Charges against three remaining officers dropped Prosecutors dropped all remaining charges against three Baltimore police officers accused in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray in a downtown courtroom on Wednesday morning, concluding one of the most high-profile criminal cases in Baltimore history. The startling move was an apparent acknowledgement of the unlikelihood of a conviction following the acquittals of three other officers on similar and more serious charges by Circuit Judge Barry G. Williams, who was expected to preside over the remaining trials as well. It also means the office of Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn J....

    In this June 9, 2016 file photo, Arthur B. Johnson Jr., of Baltimore, demonstrates alone outside Baltimore's Courthouse East on the first day of the trial of Officer Caesar Goodson, one of six Baltimore city police officers charged in connection to the death of Freddie Gray, in Baltimore. More than a year after Freddie Gray's death, the same streets that exploded in fury and flame are calm. Despite back-to-back acquittals for officers charged in Gray's death, the physical protest movement that helped topple the careers of both the police commissioner and the mayor has dissipated, leaving activists exploring other...

Williams once again handed the Freddie Gray lynch mob a decisive defeat, shredding the prosecution’s case against Lt. Brian Rice, the highest ranking police officer targeted by the mob. Judge Williams stated firmly that, the court “cannot be swayed by sympathy, prejudice or public opinion.” Instead he insisted that it had to follow the law. Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby, who became a national figure by heading the Freddie Gray lynch mob, did not even bother to show up....

    Baltimore police lieutenant cleared in Freddie Gray death By David K. Li July 18, 2016 | 10:42am Baltimore police lieutenant cleared in Freddie Gray death A Baltimore judge on Monday cleared the highest-ranking cop tied to Freddie Gray’s death. Lt. Brian Rice was found not guilty of involuntary manslaughter and reckless endangerment in a bench trial before Baltimore Circuit Court Judge Barry Williams. Prosecutors had blamed Rice for Gray’s death because he did not put a seat belt on the prisoner when Gray was loaded into the back of a police van. Gray, 25, died from spinal cord injuries he...

    Prosecutors in Baltimore have failed for the fourth time to secure a conviction in the Freddie Gray case, with Circuit Judge Barry Williams acquitting Lt. Brian Rice of all charges related to Gray's arrest and death. Williams cleared Rice, 42, of involuntary manslaughter, reckless endangerment and misconduct in office in a downtown Baltimore courtroom on Monday morning. The judge had dismissed a second-degree assault charge at the trial's midpoint, and prosecutors dropped a second misconduct charge at the start. Rice selected a bench trial rather than a jury trial, putting his legal fate in Williams' hands. He was was fourth...

    An activist law professor with a penchant for weighing in on high-profile legal cases has called for Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby to be disbarred over her prosecution of six city police officers in the Freddie Gray case. John F. Banzhaf III, a public interest law professor at the George Washington University Law School in Washington, said he intended to mail a full complaint against Mosby to the Maryland Attorney Grievance Commission on Wednesday. In the written complaint, obtained by The Baltimore Sun, Banzhaf calls Mosby a "runaway prosecutor" who has violated ethics rules governing the conduct of attorneys in...

    Detective Dawnyell Taylor said in a daily log of case notes on the investigation that a prosecutor handed her a four-page, typed narrative at the courthouse just before she appeared before the grand jury. "As I read over the narrative it had several things that I found to be inconsistent with our investigation," Taylor wrote, adding: "I thought the statements in the narrative were misquoted."
