Baltimore Non-Verdict

  • A Baltimore jury is deadlocked over the verdict in the first trial of a police officer charged in the death of Freddie Gray

    Closing arguments finished in the case Monday afternoon and the jury told the judge today that they were deadlocked and unable to reach a decision. Judge Barry Williams ordered the jury to return to chambers to try and reach a unanimous decision.

    "Compromise if you can do so without violence to your own moral judgement," Williams said.
"Compromise"? On Reasonable Doubt? That certainly sounds like an improper recommendations from the bench, prejudicial to the defense, irreversible error and grounds for an appeal.

Legally, there is so much wrong with that trial. Just like everything else influenced and associated with Obama.

"Compromise (My ASS!) if you can do so without violence to your own moral judgment," Williams said."

Anyone on that jury knows that if they vote according to the facts and acquit the media will broadcast their names and address all over the place. The "peaceful protestors" will non-violently burn down their homes and maybe their entire neighborhoods. This will be done for sport, for kicks, for lack of anything better to do. Their juror's lives, jobs and futures will be destroyed by Not Guilty Verdict.

It's Baltimore. Any notion of common sense was negated years ago.

Fetal fetal fetal and when they bitch at me for activity i will become even more blatantly fetal ! I have less than 4 years on and would love to be out there running and gunning, i can't deny its fun, however in this climate im gonna bide my time on that and study my ass off for the dicks test. I would sooner have Det. before my name than get the chance to be in jeans these days.

A judgement based on the facts is not what is wanted. A big multi-million dollar Empowerment Center has already been built for the city's hero and bares his name.
They're not looking for justice for their drug dealing hero, revenge for the tribal member is what is wanted.

I sure hope that there's a few on that jury that won't "COMPROMISE" their beliefs to that FRIGGIN Judge....

OT....talk about a lot of paperwork,,

The bulletin, issued Dec. 11, requires on-duty officers who intentionally point a firearm at someone to justify their action to their supervisors in either the incident report, a supplemental report or in a statement.

Spike Lee could have filmed the equivalent of "Chiraq" in Baltimore, but probably did not because "The Charm City" has a smaller population, has already been the subject of a series ("The Wire") and, most importantly, its municipal government is dominated by African-Americans, so there is no white political establishment to blame for all of the societal ills there.

There never was a case, the prosecutor and the mayor were pandering to the riotous mob.

The reason for this trial is so he can't take the 5th during the other trials. You've been tried once,so no excuse not to testify.

As bad as Anita Alvarez is, imagine having Marilyn Moseby as the county prosecutor here.

Seriously, Toni Preckwinkle's preferred candidate is already linked to the Michigan Avenue demonstrators who are interfering with shoppers and blocking traffic. Do we really need Kim Foxx as the top prosecutor?

"Compromise if you can do so without violence to your own moral judgement," Williams said."

If judge Barry Williams had been academically qualified to become a lawyer/judge he would have used the phrase "without violating" or "without compromising" instead of "without violence to." If you look closely, you can tell by how they speak and write - you don't need to see their SAT, LSAT, or IQ scores.

Study and take the promotion to Detective if you have the chance. This was the best job on the CPD for the 29+ years that I was in the Division. I understand that things have changed over the years since, but it will be a different life than what you now have in Patrol.

Good luck.

The Officer Porter trial in Baltimore was surprising in the lack of media coverage. Other than a piece on the news about jury selection, there was nothing said about it until the case went to the jury about a week or so after the case started.

Why the lack of media coverage? Could it be that the media has looked at the case and, as many legal experts have said, it is a probable loser case? Nothing to see here so move on to Cicago where the "16 shots" mantra is all people know about the McDonald case?

Could thing that the first case is against a black officer because if it results in an acquittal there will be less unrest than if a white officer was acquitted. Cold weather also helps.

This appears to be a Black police officer.

Lots of talk is that Black Baltimore juries just hate White police officers and "a hung jury" will mean a Black jury that wants to hang White police officers.

On rare occasions, more honest "liberal" media do a decent job of reporting on race related crime, legal procedures.

The Atlantic Magazine did a good job of explaining why the hung jury in the first prosecution/persecution of the Baltimore police in the Freddy Gray death.

http://www.theatlantic.com/national/archive/2015/12/freddie-gray-william-porter-mistrial/420858/

The Atlantic Mag writer argues that the Black (lowest class, BlackLivesMatter) Baltimore population districts, hates the police as an institution. The first police defendant was a Black cop, defense had him testify for himself (rare move) and the Black policeman was being prosecuted by White district attorneys. The Defense presented the Black cop defendant as a regular Black guy just trying to do his job who didn't hate the deceased Freddy Gray and actually was decent towards Freddy Gray when he didn't have drugs on him. So the BlackLivesMatter mobs want to attack, lynch racist White policeman or attack the Police Department as an institution - they're not really in to convicting individual (Black) cops.

I'll try to answer that.

The first case involved a Black police officer defendant. The Lugenpresse ("Lying Press") wants a White Racists vs BlackLivesMatter martyr, when the facts don't support this they bury the story or in the case of Trayvon Martin lie say that the accused George Zimmerman was a "White Hispanic".
