Prime example of police and judicial corruption. Not sure what there is to be giddy about.


"I miss America"
Seriously? It was a public trial. There is nothing corrupt or hidden about it. The judges rulings (an African American) are entirely consistent with evidentiary rules and the facts of the case. These people were charged with MURDER. There never was a murder case, not even close, period. Accusing the judge of being corrupt when everything is public is quite a stretch.

Now let the Lawsuits begin!!!.
No need. The city settled with the family just a few days after the incident. They conceded guilt before the investigation had even started.

I don't think you can make a statement such as that without having personally examined all the evidence presented to the legal system in the case. An emotional response based upon hearsay and media coverage lacks credibility.

If you have indeed examined the evidence personally to arrive at your conclusion then I apologize in advance.

The dumb Mayor of Baltimore and the Prosecutor Mosby should each pay back the city 6.4 million and the city of Baltimore should demand the money be returned since it was doled out under false pretenses and assumptions.

I sincerely hope the 6 police offices charged will file civil suits against the city, the mayor and Mosby. Their lives will never be the same. Time for real justice, theirs.

Clinton and the DNC have no respect for law enforcement. The mayor spoke at the convention but made no mention of the police. Clinton panders to the criminals mothers but makes no mention of the police who serve and protect her from the socialist Sanders protestors outside, her own kind. Self centered and unfit to lead she is.

The choices may not be great but anything is better than crooked Hillary and her gang of thieves and misfits.

The only corruption in mind is that it went to trial period. We ask these men and women to go out and do a job and then destroy their lives when they do the job. Now I am all for ROE and protecting citizens against bad people (including bad cops) but I think they should be given the benefit of the doubt when dealing with these criminals. I have yet to see any of these cases yield innocent victims being preyed upon by cops. My guess is they have their hands full with criminals.......

There IS corruption, and collusion, and graft, and everything else that this government gets accused of doing. It's not a conspiracy. It's all out in the open and nobody seems to care when the people who break the law are the powerful, political elite, or they can use it to their advantage. A Donald Trump couldn't exist as a viable candidate if the political environment weren't already toxic, Washington wasn't already being run like a criminal syndicate (both sides), and our system of government already entirely polluted by the venial and avaricious designs of the "professional politicians" who inhabit it and perpetuate it while becoming multi-millionaires on our backs.

At the lowest level of the Executive Branch, the police, I really don't see it. Of course there is going be corruption. Every police department is made up of humans. The systemic and conspiratorial corruption that's alleged simply requires the complicity of too many, basically good people to have a scintilla of truth. Ocaam's razor and all.

Do I believe her that the police didn't enthusiastically cooperate fully in prosecuting six of their own? Absolutely. I don't think any person in any profession would help a government official railroad coworkers and the whole operation for political reasons. To expect otherwise is cretinous. How could they give her the cooperation she seems to have expected when the idiot tried to convict the officers in the media before the investigation had even begun? How could they when she staked out their guilt before even seeing the evidence and deciding if there was enough to prosecute? The only miscarriage of justice and corruption I see in this is a prosecutor who thought she had a political opening to advance her career and lunged at it before assessing what the situation actually was. The only misconduct I can see here is of a prosecutorial nature. If you don't have a case you cannot just take it to the media and try to convict the accused publically. That's why there is a court. But, that is exactly what she tried to do. The courts were not having it, and if they ever do we are in worse trouble than the terrible and fragile position we find the Republic in today.

Freddie Gray died in police custody. Now no one is going to answer for that, be held responsible for that, or even have the procedure changed because this idiot tried to say that the police intentionally, with malice aforethought, murdered him. If you want to put your finger on the injustice you need to start with an incompetent prosecutor who overcharged and jumped into the spotlight for her own selfish reasons.

Maybe this should've been your op, OP, rather than poppin' bottles in celebration.

This will get nowhere near the press that the original decision to prosecute did.

Anyone who doesn't believe that Mosby had an ideological bias in pursuing a case before almost any facts were in is either intentionally ignorant or doesn't know anything about the case.

This I can agree with. You're still admitting LEO IS guilty, there IS corruption. Just that it was prosecuted wrong and now they will forever walk free.

as others said, a lot different than pouring champagne for everyone.

Mosby should have used her press conference to apologize for her stunning incompetence and announce her resignation. Instead, she cravenly tried to blame the police for her failures.

On day one, she publicly announced she was bringing murder charges against all six officers. Now, a competent prosecutor would ge the facts and develop a theory of criminal culpability that fits the fact pattern. That, in turn, would determine what charges were filed.

Instead, the prosecution floundered around desperately trying to formulate a theory that sustained murder charges against the officers, and failed utterly.

Because the prosecution was so inept, we will never really know what happened to Mr. Gray. Ms.Mosby's attempt to blame this on anyone else is just pathetic.

The black community is a big loser in all this. Overzealous prosecution of LE can only discourage the proactive policing that is necessary in some neighborhoods. The only winners in this fiasco are the relatives of Freddie Gray who walked off with $6.4 million less lawyer fees. And the six officers have had their reputations and careers ruined. But wait, according to the mayor there will be an administrative review which is not likely to come out in the officers' favor.
