Baltimore state's attorney Mosby seeks to hide Freddie Gray autopsy - American Thinker (blog)

"...Marilyn Mosby, the state's attorney prosecuting six Baltimore police officers, had no concerns over speaking out on her evidence on a national stage, but now she wants to deny the public access to the autopsy performed on the late Freddie Gray. What is she hiding, and why?She is doing an excellent impersonation of a young and inexperienced prosecutor in way over her head, as she also seeks more time to respond to defendants' motions, keeping them in limbo and without means of support, while her office, with over 200 attorneys available, claims that it is unable to respond in the normal amount of time allowed for such motions...." see full article

Baltimore Needs A Prosecutor Like Bob McCulloch, Not Marilyn Mosby - Daily Caller
"...Mosby's forcefully delivered announcement of the indictment that promised justice for the apparent injustice last month won her a fanbase and appeased the angry crowds in Baltimore. But while her rockstar status may be cemented, the evidence that she is coming to this case with a predetermined bias is mounting and the calls for her recusal are increasing.Just last week, it was discovered that Mosby had favorited tweets that called the six officers she charged for the death of Gray thugs and praised her work for infuriating a certain kind of white person. Knowing how bad this looked, Mosby resorted to the new dog ate my homework excuse that her Twitter account was hacked when these favorites occurred...." see full article

Marilyn Mosby Becomes A Circus Ringmaster Amid Skyrocketing Baltimore ... - Daily Caller
"...She and her husband received the UniverSoul Circus Community Service Award for their commitment to the well-being of the Baltimore community. The circus insisted it invited the Mosbys before the Freddie Gray case.In the midst of her receiving awards and rubbing elbows with celebrities, two more overnight homicides occurred in Baltimore. May is now tied for the third-deadliest month in four decades in the city.Some Baltimore critics have suggested the numerous anti-police statements by the Baltimore mayor, state attorney and city leaders have led to police officers not proactively fighting crime out of concern that they will face legal jeopardy for pursuing suspects...." see full article

Marilyn Mosby's response to conflict of interest charges is unbefitting her office - Hot Air
"...A pinball machine reference? Absurd? Laughable? Is this a response to a court document from one of the highest law enforcement officers in the state or a lost copy of Miley Cyrus responding to a bad review on Buzzfeed? When the defense presents an objection, no matter how controversial the case, one would expect that they would receive an official response which addresses the points raised and does so in a professional manner. This sounds more like a temper tantrum from a toddler who has been asked to put away one of her toys.The charges against the officers are looking harder and harder to defend to begin with, fueling speculation that the young State's Attorney was reaching well past her grasp on this one for whatever reason. In fact, one of the chief points she raised in justifying the charges was that the initial detention of Freddie Gray was illegal in the first place since his knife was legal. That claim has been roundly challenged by the cops, but a demand to produce the knife had gone unanswered the last time we heard from her department...." see full article

Mosby's 'conflicts' - Baltimore Sun
"...Ms. Mosby's conduct has not been flawless. She is now pursuing a gag order in the case, which is not only unnecessary but inimical to the public interest. Her rationale is that the defense attorneys are seeking to try the case in public and taint the possible jury pool which is more or less what she skated up to in her unusually impassioned reading of the statement of probable cause in the case during a nationally televised news conference. And she has shown an unseemly willingness to bask in the spotlight the case affords, for example accepting an invitation on stage with the musician Prince during his post-riot concert here and sitting down for an interview with Vogue magazine. Ms. Mosby didn't make any remarks at the Prince concert, and she didn't discuss the pending case with Vogue, but those sorts of things detract from the seriousness of her purpose.That said, calls for her recusal don't add up.Defense attorneys for the six officers contend that Ms. Mosby brings major conflicts of interest to the prosecution. They cite the fact that her husband, Nick Mosby, is a city councilman representing the district where Gray lived and was arrested; that she has personal and professional ties to William "Billy" Murphy, the Gray family's lawyer; and that one of her top deputies has a personal relationship with a potential witness in the case, television reporter Jayne Miller...." see full article

Baltimore States Atty Marilyn Mosby May Face Criminal Charges For Her Sloppy Work
"... Mosby has undermined the cause of justice rather than promoted it with her haste. She has created an expectation of guilt and conviction. But her own charging documents do not even support the most sensational charge of second degree murder, and they raise multiple points of doubt about other charges. If no convictions occur, many will blame the system as unfair or unjust, when it may have been Mosby's own lack of competence and/or ambition in bringing charges so quickly. However much her performance raises her to star status, she will have dealt a blow to the justice system...." see full article

Does Baltimore's Marilyn Mosby deserve the Mike Nifong Award for most contemptible prosecutor?
"...Her case against the two arresting officers rests upon an "illegal" arrest. She says the knife that Freddie Gray was carrying was legal. But according to the Baltimore Sun, the police task force examined it and said the officers were indeed correct, the knife was spring-assisted and therefore prohibited. If so, it was Mosby who made the 'illegal' arrest, and could be charged under her own theory of 'false imprisonment.' And sued to boot, since she forfeited her immunity from civil action by doing the charging herself...." see full article

A Prosecution That Threatens a City

"...An incompetent prosecutor or worse, a politically driven prosecutor who also happens to be incompetent can do worse things than blow an important case. The more one scrutinizes the case against six Baltimore police officers said to be implicated in the death of Freddie Gray, the more one worries that the prosecution will cost lives. ..." see full article
