They need an Independent Federal Investigator/Prosecutor in Baltimore
Because if they don’t convict somebody the city will burn and the way the city is handling this, a law school drop out will be able to get these charges dismissed and these cops off, which if they are innocent is fine, but this has railroad job written all over it. Six killers, all cops? The black leadership of the city is compounding their problems not solving them with this move.
They are already off on two left feet and it is very early.
Why do I say such negative things on a day when thugs the city over are celebrating?
Look carefully at the objections the Police union lawyer is raising, objections city leaders are ignoring and will therefore form the basis for over turning whatever verdict thy eventually get. Mr. Ryan is the police lawyer and Ms. Mosby is the prosecutor for Baltimore city.
From the NYT — Mr. Ryan argued that Ms. Mosby had conflicts of interest, including the fact that she has been supported politically by William H. Murphy Jr., the lawyer for Mr. Gray’s family. He also noted that her husband is a city councilman, and said his “political future will be directly impacted, for better or worse, by the outcome of your investigation.”
Those are the conflicts they started with. If she keeps this case, these guys eventually walk. I don’t know if that’s secretly what the city leadership wants, but if it is, they’re doing this just right.
