"We have a state's attorney who used an opportunity of crisis to quell the riots."Score this one for the FOP. The Sun reports:
“The unrest had nothing to do with my decision to charge,” says Mosby. “I just followed where the facts led.”
By charging six police officers in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray, State's Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby restored order to Baltimore "before the entire city became an armed camp or was burned to the ground," her office argues in a new court filing.Thanks, Mosby. Glad you solved that riot problem. And so nice to see you in all the magazines. I don't think I need to point out how wrong of a justification that is to take into account while deciding whether or not to criminally charge people with crimes.
