[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby has come under fire for a variety of reasons for her handling of the Freddie Gray case, more specifically for the charges that she brought against the six arresting officers in the case. Many, including famed liberal Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, believe Mosby overreached in her charges. The most severe charge being second degree murder with a depraved heart against 45-year old Officer Caesar Goodson, one of the three black officers charged in Gray’s death.
[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]The attorney for Freddy Gray was a top donor to Mosby’s campaign and her husband, Nick Mosby, is a council member in the district where riots were held following Gray’s funeral. When Mosby announced the charges, she was neither professional nor impartial. She came across as angry and appeared to have already made a decision as to the guilt of the officers and took a stand with the rioters based upon what she said during her press conference.
With the numerous controversies and seeming conflict of interest for Mosby in the case, attorneys for the officers are attempting to get Mosby to recuse herself from the case. Though Mosby denies that there is any conflict of interest for her in the case, her latest antic gives more fuel to this fire and will bring about even more questions regarding whether it is appropriate for her to participate in the case.
The music artist Prince recorded an anti-gun rights song called Baltimore that he played during a concert held in Baltimore on Mother’s Day. The song, though upbeat, is a call to ‘end police brutality. In attendance at that concert, courtesy of tickets from her husband, was Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby. Not only did Mosby attend the concert, she was invited by Prince to join him on stage before he sang his song Baltimore, which calls for the confiscation of all guns.

Mosby did not have to say a word in that moment. Though she is supposedly an avid Prince fan, given the circumstances surrounding the Freddy Gray case, she certainly did not have to attend. But, she did, then she stood on the stage, waving to the crowd, as Prince attacked police and called for the confiscation of all guns.
This is more than just about optics. This is about a State’s Attorney who, by her actions and words, is sending the message to the community and all of the Baltimore Police Department that the officers that she overcharged are guilty until proven innocent. With each of these actions, Mosby is simply continuing to light the fuse on a ticking time bomb of unrest in Baltimore just waiting to take place once again.
