More Baltimore Misconduct
This is what passes for "due process" in a wholly owned and operated Democrat city:
- The defense attorneys for the six Baltimore police officers charged in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray have text message evidence they say shows a prosecutor in the office of state’s attorney Marilyn Mosby “judge-shopping” for a warrant for the cops’ cell phones.
The Baltimore Sun reports that in a motion filed Wednesday, the cops’ attorneys said they have phone logs and text messages from April 27 showing that assistant state’s attorney Albert Peisinger reached out to Baltimore circuit court judge Timothy Doory to sign off on a search warrant for the officers’ department-issued phones. That was after a search warrant had already been denied by a different judge.
- Well, well, well… just as we all suspected… Marilyn Mosby’s office was withholding evidence. And to top that off, Freddie Gray had previously tried to injure himself during an arrest. No wonder the defense is filing misconduct charges. Mosby must have a leak or three in her merry band of racists as well. Trial by ambush, indeed. Mosby not only tried to sway those charging the officers to beef up the charges, she had a private meeting with the pathologist before the autopsy. In their filing last week, the defense attorneys said prosecutors have withheld “multiple witness statements from individuals who stated that Mr. Gray was banging and shaking the van at various points” after his arrest on April 12th, as well as “police reports, court records, and witness statements indicating that on prior occasions, Mr. Gray had fled from police and attempted to discard drugs.”
At this rate, Vinny Gambini could be the defense attorney and walk away with an outright acquittal....and an Oscar nomination.
