jazzarama, In many cop as defendant cases, grand juries return no indictments at all. Here they fully agree with Mosby.

imo, and as was argued vehemently in the Brown and Garner cases, prosecutors aren't overly eager to indict cops. I happen to believe that is one of the reasons so few cops are indicted and why independent investigations and prosecutors are worthwhile ideas in cops cases.

In this case, Mosby desperately wanted charges and indictments. Maybe they're guilty of every charge against them. The mere fact that Mosby got a GJ to go her way just doesn't affect my opinion one way or another.

In this case, all Mosby did was present her case. There is no "Mosby got a GJ to go her way" to it. The Grand Jury is independent of Mosby or her wishes. If it makes you feel better, you can think the GJ and Mosby are all related and its a Grand Conspiracy to make Black people happy. Who cares. The fact is that its the Justice System, working as it should be, by the same Laws we all are subject to. You can't change that.

There are plenty of others out there that feel Freddy's death was no big deal and/or he deserved it because he was probably a bad guy. Your not alone, and those opinions don't change mine either. If something like this happens to these same people or some one in their family, you can bet they will be the first to yell "Murder" and want a Lynch Mob.

Political prisoners........ Sounds right.

Just like, we're supposed to ignore the fact that 3 of the 6 officers involved were in fact black, that way the media can peddle their usual " that's racist " narrative.

Clarke for POTUS!

You've seen right through me Gray deserved to die and his death is no big deal One less happy-go-lucky drug dealing criminal in the community and society True, if a member of my family entered a cop van alive and exited dead, I'd have a rope in both hands ready to Lynch the cops

You're right, the old saying about prosecutors being able to indict a ham sandwich is pure bs.
