“To the people of Baltimore and the demonstrators across America, I heard your call for ‘no justice, no peace,’” Marilyn Mosby said Friday. “Your peace is sincerely needed as I work to deliver justice on behalf of this young man, those that are angry or hurt or have their own experience of injustice.”
Obviously this has nothing to do with justice, but is merely throwing chum to the sharks to distract them so they will not burn any more of the city. This is like paying ransom to terrorists. It only encourages more of the same.
Charges were filed 12 days after Gray died. The internal police department investigation was completed Thursday. The autopsy came in Friday morning. Mosby announced charges within hours. Thorough investigation?
Justice delayed may be justice denied, but a rush to judgment is equally wrong.
Like the cop in Ferguson who resigned, though he was exonerated, the cops in Baltimore will forever be under a cloud no matter what happens in the courts.
Half of the people arrested for rioting were released by police with no charges being filed.
