What do we agree on ? You think a prosecutor's indictment is proof of guilt; I don't"

It is proof that enough evidence was presented to their satisfaction to warrant a trial.

In the interim, at least one of the cops will, no doubt, talk for the sake of reduced charges for themselves. Just like all perps arrested en masse.

Your problem is that nothing supports your opinion in real life. The charges for illegal arrest where not dropped, even after the Grand Jury looked at the evidence. Everything stuck. Where are all those folks that where claiming the Grand Jury would kick out all these charges? Preparing Crow fritters? Face it, no one is going to "Walk" on this one, unless its for an hour a day in the main yard.

I don't care about a grand jury decision. Getting indictments is like a sports team winning a game against an opponent that isn't allowed to play defense. Or like in the Eric Garner case, a prosecutor who maybe doesn't want to play offense.

As for Mosby bringing charges, what the heck was she supposed to do to stop the riots and further her political career.

Mosby did her job, which was to bring charges the evidence warranted bringing, and the grand jury did the same. The resulting charges were very much the same as the original, further validating both decisions.

Blinded by hate colors the world.... completely
As usual your arguments lack for substance. I'm talking about Americans in their own country, where Freedom and Justice For All is supposed to prevail. Where there is a Constitution and a Bill of Rights, where there is the notion of innocent until proven guilty, due process, probable cause, etc.

You're trying to justify your actions by comparing them to wartime actions on the other side of the world! The Viet Cong had more integrity than police in the United States! They were fighting for their country. You're just waging war on Americans. Police should be labelled Domestic Terrorist!

Ok, if I tell you only what I believe and you end up agreeing with me, that validates both of us ? The cops might be guilty of a host of crimes, but Mosby saying so and a GJ deciding there's probable cause for a trial based on what she told them doesn't validate either of them.

Your joking, right? You actually think a Grand Jury listens to the story a Prosecutor tells, and decides to indict or not to indict? That's comical.

The Grand Jury listens to the Prosecutions case, and all of its witnesses and looks at all the evidence the Prosecution has, then decides. They aren't just going on Mosby's story.

I bet the defendants care about the Grand Jury decision.....


Mosby did her job. That's what she was hired to do. Prosecute criminals. That's all the people wanted. She stood up to the Police Department, and the Police Union to right a wrong, and the Death of an innocent man to not go unpunished. I hope she keeps up the good work and roots out crime where ever it may be hiding, even if its hiding under the cover of color. A Badge is not a license to kill innocent people, mistake, blunder, not caring, or on purpose.

The prosecutor decides which witnesses to present to the GJ, which reports, what questions to ask.

We'll know after the trials whether she prosecuted criminals or simply decided that was the best way to stop the riots and help her, hubby's, and the mayor's political careers. If the cops are convicted of a few lesser charges, not the murder 2 or manslaughter, she'll have some unhappy friends nipping at her heels.

I bet the cops [ham sandwiches] and their lawyers had no doubt what the GJ would do.
