Black district attorney, black mayor, black judge, black cops, black corpse, black rioters, black Attorney General, black President … white people to blame.

They should take the amount of cash they threw at Freddie Gray's family, and give each officer who had to endure political crucifixion the same amount, and Ms. Mosby should be fired, she is more of an activist and works off her emotions too much to be impartial when it comes to the law.

I actually had and still have some sympathy for Gray. Criminal or not, due process is just that.

But the way Mosby swooned in front of those cameras while she appeased the rioters and began her kangaroo court made me sick.

There is a good lesson for everyone to learn here regardless of where you stand on the topic.

If the pols will throw their own union cops under the bus in order to further their career or get heat off of themselves....

Imagine how they occasionally treat the poor and disenfranchised whenever there is a call to get "tough on crime"?
Police patrols, tougher sentencing, random stops....

There have been events in the past where after incidents like this....various attention grabbers have been sued and forced to make civil settlements over things they said in the media.

Duke Lacrosse players, the guys accused in the Tawana Brawley case, the Olympic bombing security officer Jewel....all collected just to name some.

(There have also been a ton of settlements for people abused by police, railroaded etc.)

The term is "Paddy" wagon and it is a derogatory term used to describe the vehicle used to transport drunken Irishmen. They need to update the term to describe the thugs it transports now.

My Irish ancestors had good reason to drink. Many became slaves in the new world and they were all treated as less than human.

Are you seeking reparations? How about rioting/looting and demanding free stuff? Just thought I'd ask...

Default Five officers suing prosecutor for false arrest

Quote:
Freddie Gray officers suing prosecutor Marilyn Mosby| CNN

Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby is going from prosecutor to civil defendant in connection with the case of the death of Freddie Gray.

On Wednesday, Mosby announced that charges against three officers still facing trial were being dropped. Mosby gave only a statement, but had to leave without taking questions because five of the officers in the case have filed lawsuits against her.

Officers Garrett Miller, Edward Nero and William Porter as well as Sgt. Alicia White and Lt. Brian Rice are suing Mosby and Maj. Samuel Cogen of the Baltimore Sheriff's Office. Cogen was the law enforcement officer who filed charging documents against the officers.

The lawsuits allege false arrest, false imprisonment, defamation or false light, and other assertions. They were filed in U.S. District Court in Maryland in 2015 in late april and early may around the time the officers were arrested.
