All remaining charges dropped in Freddie Gray case [video]

Baltimore prosecutor Marilyn Mosby is having a bad day, to top off her bad year. After suffering through three non-convictions, her office has dropped all remaining charges associated with the death of Freddie Gray. She is 0 for 6. That’s gotta hurt. And she held so much promise. She coulda been a contender.

Marilyn Mosby had an explosive situation fall into her lap, and instead of approaching it in a principled objective way, she let her bias and thirst for power take over. She’s young, and immaturity probably had something to do with it, but it appears she’s also steeped in an ideology that automatically holds that cops are abusive (she says she’s not anti-police, she’s anti-police brutality). Certainly anytime a person loses his life in questionable circumstances when in police custody, we should take a long hard look at what happened to guard against police state brutality. Here, facts pointing to abuse were very slim, and Mosby didn’t even wait for a full investigation before she pranced out to get her name in the news. Some charges like negligence may have been appropriate, but she overcharged and ended up destroying any shred of credibility for the rest of her case.
