Baltimore Mayor And DA Desperately Searching For A Freddie Gray Fall-Guy
Fall guy: a colloquial
phrase that refers to a person to whom blame is deliberately and falsely
This journal item is long but,
the nefarious charges by Baltimore
against six of their Police Officers, who were performing their duties in a
very high crime area and hostile environment, deserves some review.
Freddie Gray: Prosecutor criticized after officer
BALTIMORE (AP) — After two
trials and no convictions, Baltimore's
top prosecutor is facing criticism that she moved too quickly to file charges
against six officers in the death of Freddie Gray without first ensuring there
was enough evidence to bring them to bear.
Even the judge overseeing
the cases — in his verdict Monday acquitting the latest officer to stand trial
in the death of the African-American man — said the state failed to prove its
case on any of the charges.
found not guilty on all charges in Freddie Gray case
A judge in Baltimore Monday found a Police Officer not
guilty on all charges against him in connection with the death of Freddie Gray
in police custody, months after another officer's trial ended in a hung jury.
Charges included: second-degree assault,
misconduct in office and reckless endangerment.
Baltimore cop argues
Freddie Gray had illegal knife
One of six Baltimore Police Officers
charged in last month's death of Freddie Gray argues in a court filing that the
knife found in the suspect's pocket after his arrest was illegal, contrary to
what the city's top prosecutor has stated.
Attorneys want Maryland State's
Attorney Marilyn Mosby to show them the knife that resulted in Officer Edward Nero being charged Friday with
second-degree assault, misconduct in office and false imprisonment.
It’s been a year since this
incident and the Baltimore DA has still
not shown the defense or the public the infamous knife.
The police offices charge that
the knife was illegal and similar to:
Gray’s defense and supports
say the knife was legal and was a Swiss Army Knife:
If it were a Swiss-Army knife, would we
not have seen it by now?
Baltimore DA Marilyn Mosby: Show Us The Knife
Baltimore’s Freddie Gray: Swiss Army Knife or Switch-blade?
The Baltimore City malfeasance
against their own Police Officers has been exacerbated by the City Council and Mayor awarding the family of Freddie Gray $6.4
MILLION tax-payer money.
Baltimore city board unanimously approves $6.4M settlement in
death of Freddie Gray
BALTIMORE – A city board Wednesday approved a $6.4
million settlement with the family of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who
died a week after he was critically injured while in police custody.
Rawlings-Blake and other members of the Board of Estimates voted unanimously to
approve the settlement Wednesday morning.
The settlement appears to be among the largest such payments in police
death cases in recent years. It was
reached before Gray's parents and his estate filed a lawsuit, although they
had filed claims with the city and its police department
Clearly this reparations
money was given illegally and the Mayor and the Council members should be sued
by the taxpayers and forced to make personal restitution.
Since the Freddie Gray
incident occurred, the Baltimore Police have been restrained from exercising their
duties and there has been a resultant surge in crime. The sad result is that it is primarily people
of color who suffer the most.
Judge Jeanine: Shame on you, Marilyn Mosby
Baltimore: The Inmates
Running The Asylum
Bernie has been a thorn
under Queen Hillary’s saddle for the past year.
Bernie is bummed because the
DNC rules favor Hillary.
Bernie is now focusing his
displeasure toward the DNC Chairperson Deborah Wasserman Schultz, who is also a
Florida Congressperson and is in a primary fight.
Sanders backs Debra Wasserman
Schultz's primary opponent
In a stinging rebuke to
Democratic leaders hoping to unite the Party, Sen. Bernie Sanders said Saturday
he wants Democratic National Committee chair Deborah Wasserman Schultz to lose
to her primary opponent in Florida.
A loss could effectively end her chairmanship of the DNC.
Asked by CNN whether he
prefers Deborah Wasserman Schultz or her primary opponent, Tim Canova, Sanders
left no doubt about his desire to see the DNC chair defeated.
"Well, clearly, I favor
her opponent," Sanders told CNN. "His views are much closer to mine than as
to Wasserman Shultz's."
Sanders says he's supporting
DNC chairwoman's opponent in Florida
The DNC Leadership and all
the Democrats running for office in November are very disturbed that Bernie is burning
Hillary and taking a big bite out of “Big Deborah”.
