State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby’s public announcement of charges for six officers in the Freddie Gray case was required to stem the tide of unrest “before the entire city became an armed camp or was burned to the ground,” according to Mosby’s office.
To be fair, the self congratulations came in a court filing responding to the claim of the officers’ attorneys that Mosby’s public announcement was so detrimental to jury selection that the whole case should be thrown out, the Baltimore Sun reports.
And if you think her appearance on stage at Prince’s “Rally 4 Peace” was unbecoming of a state’s attorney, her office has an answer for that, too. Mosby’s deputy Michael Schatzow said her presence there wasn’t an endorsement of anything, “except perhaps her enthusiasm for Prince, by sitting on stage for the entire concert.”
