It’s beginning to look like politics, more than justice, was the driving force in Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby‘s decision to charge six police officers with the death of small-time drug dealer Freddie Gray last April. Leaked text messages indicate the prosecutors were prepared to charge the officers, regardless of any evidence.
Case notes revealed that the prosecution reportedly gave Detective Dawnyell Taylor a narrative that she was to read to the grand jury during the initial phase of the case, Fox News’ reported.
She wrote that the narrative “had several things that I found to be inconsistent with our investigation.”
“I thought the statements in the narrative were misquoted,” Taylor added.
One of the text messages revealed that Taylor also told the top investigator in the case that she wasn’t comfortable reading the narrative the prosecution gave her.
“I’m fine with finding the facts but between us I believe we omitted key things from their combined statements,” the detective said.
Those are some pretty damning words, and they could certainly land Mosby in serious trouble.
On Wednesday, Mosby dropped all charges against the six police officers involved in Gray’s death after the prosecution failed to make its case in four attempts in court.
When speaking at a news conference after the charges were dropped, Mosbay played the victim card, and was quick to blame the justice system, the police, the court, the detectives, the defendants and even the judge in the case.
She also had the nerve to place some blame on the media. This is the same media that ran with her narrative and effectively fueled the riots and protests that erupted in Baltimore after Gray’s death — riots that destroyed hundreds of businesses.
