Baltimore's Marilyn Mosby and Stephanie Rawlings-Blake have blood on their ... - American Thinker (blog)

"...Instead of working to keep violent criminals off the streets, Mosby and Blake gave rival gangs carte blanche to wreak havoc in inner-city black neighborhoods. Baltimore has been on life support for decades, and this pair just pulled the plug.After Mosby charged six police officers in the death of a 26-year-old drug dealer named Freddie Gray on May 1, arrests have dropped by over half in Baltimore, and homicides have seen a major spike.What does she care, or Rawlings-Blake? When reporters asked Blake about the 36 killings and 91 non-fatal shootings in Baltimore so far this month, along with law enforcement officers' reluctance to end up like the Baltimore 6, she blamed the strained relationship between Commissioner Anthony Batts and the rank-and-file!..." see full article

Mosby has a second chance to get the Freddie Gray charges right - Baltimore Sun
"...Still, it is not too late to stop an injustice. The next step in this case is the grand jury investigation. Ms. Mosby has characterized early defense motions as "desperate efforts to hijack the grand jury process." Such rhetoric is disconcerting; challenging the evidentiary basis for charges is not "hijacking" the process it is part of the process. And the grand jury should be far more deliberate and measured than Ms. Mosby's original decision to announce sweeping charges based on faulty evidence. The tragic irony of those early charges is that they reveal how little is known about what actually caused Mr. Gray's fatal injuries. For instance, the charges of murder and manslaughter require the officers to have created a grave risk to Mr. Gray's life through their conduct, and then consciously disregarded that risk. Yet, the statement of probable cause lacks facts to support such charges.As former federal prosecutors in Baltimore who routinely used the grand jury to investigate criminal conduct, we call on Ms. Mosby to conduct a full and fair grand jury investigation, not simply a one-day presentation in which the results are pre-determined. We call on her to put justice before politics and go where the evidence takes her, not where her constituents want her to go. Another rush to judgment serves neither the ends of justice nor the long-term interests of our community. While every death is a tragedy, not every death is a crime...." see full article

Baltimore state's attorney can handle Freddie Gray case scrutiny - Baltimore Sun
"...Marilyn Mosby can handle her critics. She's a professional overseeing a high profile Baltimore case, and she is being held to the same standard to which all prosecutors are held. Some of those scrutinizing her have a fundamental misunderstanding of her role as a prosecutor, however, which is a disservice to her and the justice system...." see full article

My Analysis of Marilyn Mosby's Case -
"...Maybe she wanted to include a murder charge in it because she's no different than the crowd. And I think that's really the case. I don't think she's any different than that crowd standing looking at her, this protest bunch demanding justice, no justice, no peace. I think she's one of those people that's ended up as a prosecutor. ..." see full article

Marilyn Mosby, the Hero of Baltimore -
"...She also revealed that, at 35, she has a personal stake in the plight of the young people in Baltimore who were the most outspoken protestors after Gray's death. Her use of "our" instead of "your" at the end of this statement suggests that in some ways, she considers herself to be one of them..." see full article

Are Marilyn & Nick Mosby The New Clintons? - American Spectator (blog)
"...Given this status, it is not unreasonable to conclude that Marilyn Mosby is in simpatico with Nick Mosby when it comes to rationalizing violent behavior. Is it possible that these beliefs rather than the evidence is driving these charges? ..." see full article

Marilyn Mosby: hypocrite, grandstander, ideologue - Power Line (blog)
"...Given the speed with which Mosby brought charges against the Baltimore six case, the strong likelihood that she has overcharged, her grandstanding to the mob, and her marriage to a West Baltimore politician whose interests lie with throwing the book at the six officers, I think we have to start questioning her motives. As Mosby would put it, racial dynamics may well be at play...." see full article

How State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby became the hero of Baltimore - Vox

"...Mosby is sympathetic to the concerns both of law enforcement officers and of people especially African-Americans who are worried about police misconduct. Or at least she makes a convincing case that she can see both sides of the debate over racialized policing and the police-involved deaths of unarmed African-Americans...." see full article

Marilyn Mosby just bought herself some trouble over Freddie Gray
"...But even if we are to accept that the state's investigation has revealed sufficient evidence for such charges, the handling of this case by Mosby thus far is only handing ammunition to the defense. I was particularly struck by the tone and wording of Mosby's speech, which veered far from any pretext of the rule of law and well into social justice territory regarding law enforcement officials who have yet to have their day in court...." see full article

Why Marilyn Mosby's Comments on Freddie Gray Matter
"...Demographics are important here. Mosby is young, black, and female; the other prosecutors are middle-aged, white, and male. And while Mosby's response to the case has been as aggressive and empathetic as you'd expect a state's attorney to be, other attorneys' responses were measured to the point of being lackadaisical...." see full article
