A lawsuit against a Baltimore police officer who was famously recorded on a YouTube video yelling at young skateboarders at the Inner Harbor for calling him "dude" has been thrown out by a city judge.Do you think there's any relation between the fallout from that youtube clip, less aggressive policing in the Inner Harbor, and the recent spate of shootings there?
Circuit Judge Evelyn Cannon granted a defense motion for summary judgment to dismiss the case.... after Cannon determined that it was filed outside the 180-day time frame to bring legal action, reversing an earlier decision by a different judge.
