Well...this just came in...I wonder how much flak will be throw up on this verdict ??? I just hope none and we can all agree that justice has spoken. But, I doubt it.


What do you all think??? Are the rest going to be found not guilty??? I think so



Most Senior Police Officer In Freddie Gray Case Is Found Not Guilty Of Manslaughter

Baltimore judge has found Lt. Brian Rice, one of six Baltimore police officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray last year, not guilty of involuntary manslaughter. That's the most serious charge Rice had faced; he was also cleared of lesser charges.

Another failure for Marilyn Mosby.

A bit over zealous I think.

From everything I have seen and read, this was a fair verdict. The judge, who is black himself, has a reputation for being blunt and fair. I think justice was done, but some people don't want justice...they want revenge with violence. Facts and fairness won't matter to them.

Doesn't this make her 0-2 when it comes to the officers who faced the most serious charges?

Maybe she can save face by getting a misconduct conviction.

Probably not.

I always thought that to become a lawyer, you had to know the law. I hope the police that filed a lawsuit against her win and her career is forever over. HA! right....

Two of the officers charged after Freddie Gray died in police custody in April of 2015 have already been acquitted; another officer who was the first to go on trial saw a mistrial declared in December, after the jury couldn't reach a verdict.


there you go

I know that, I was referring to the specific charges for specific officers. She's 0-2 with officers that had a manslaughter charge. The officer with the depraved heart murder charge is the one that had a hung jury.

Point being she's not winning her home run cases, though I suppose she may manage to pull something out of her hat with the depraved heart case. I'll be surprised, though.

This is what happens when you go with public opinion instead of actual evidence and facts. Plus, her charges against the officers were way to heavy to even get any kind of justice if misconduct did occur. She just went with the crowd and her own bias and now her career is probably over.

Marilyn Mosby failed miserably

Part of me believes she just charged them to get the savages to stop rioting knowing there was no way she could win.

I'm not totally convinced of that. She went a little too far afterwards, right down to improperly withholding evidence from the defense that was exculpatory.

She probably could have gotten some of the officers kicked off the police force but instead she went with the big boy charges to get them in prison.

She deserves to be sued based on the officers being found not guilt on all charges

Probably not, but trying to give benefit of the doubt.

Every case these BLM idiots hang their hats on turns out to be a dud once all the facts come to light.

I think anytime a police officer or other public servants are being tried for a crime, the hearing and trial should automatically be televised live for the public to see. These officers and politicians are paid with taxpayers dollars and are supposed to serve and uphold the constitutional rights of the people they serve. The public has every right to view these proceedings so they can be sure that justice was served.

Our justice system is closely aligned with the police and they can be very lenient when handing down punishment for political criminals. The public should always be in the position of watchdog when public servants abuse our trust.

Mosby is where she is for political reasons, not because of her skills as a lawyer. Withholding evidence is a crime and she should be prosecuted for dereliction of duty and obstruction of justice. She is a pox on the city and should leave before she is booted out.

So, the medical examiner has ruled that Gray's death was a homicide, but so far none of the officers involved have been found guilty.

What's wrong with this picture?

You think? Lol. This bitch needs to be fired and sued by every single one of these officers. She abused her authority to appease a lynch mob. At least the judge in these cases are smarter than her.

from Law.com:



homicide

n. the killing of a human being due to the act or omission of another. Included among homicides are murder and manslaughter, but not all homicides are a crime, particularly when there is a lack of criminal intent. Non-criminal homicides include killing in self-defense, a misadventure like a hunting accident or automobile wreck without a violation of law like reckless driving, or legal (government) execution. Suicide is a homicide, but in most cases there is no one to prosecute if the suicide is successful. Assisting or attempting suicide can be a crime.




At least the judges can tell the difference. Mosby needs to be disbarred and sued by every single one of these officers. She only recommended charges to appease a lynch mob.
