Another day, another chapter in the ongoing saga surrounding Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby and her problematic prosecution of the “Baltimore Six.” This latest episode involves a Fox News reporter and a district attorney who appears to want nothing more than to dismiss him with a terse and testy answer followed by a quick exit, stage left.
It was only yesterday, Wednesday, that we told you about the latest bombshell to explode on the Baltimore scene, where the inexperienced Ms. Mosby continues to show that, in the minds of many, she’s more interested in seeking the limelight than in seeking true and impartial justice in the case of Freddie Gray’s police-custody death.
Western Journalism reported that “…a staff member in Mosby’s office sent an email to the Baltimore Police Department to direct officers on behalf of the prosecutor to ‘crack down on the exact area’ where Gray was arrested.”
In other words, Marilyn Mosby’s prior statements that the Baltimore cops made an unlawful arrest when they picked up Gray after he ran from them are contradicted by the fact that it was she who ordered the police crackdown on drug dealing in the high-crime area where the arrest took place. By the way, that neighborhood where Mosby wanted a tougher police presence is in the district represented by her husband as a member of the Baltimore city council.
Now, as The Daily Caller points out, the prosecutor didn’t acquit herself all that well on Wednesday when confronted by a Fox News reporter asking a tough question about her relationship with Baltimore police.
“’Rank and file cops have said that you don’t have their backs. What would you like to say to them?’ asked Fox News reporter Griff Jenkins following a mid-day press conference.”
By clicking on the video above, you can see how Mosby tensed up and, with a fiery glare that clearly showed her anger, uttered a few choice words before heading for the door. The segment comes from the Fox News show On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.
