Justice for Freddie Gray?

Marilyn Mosby, Baltimore States Attorney filed charges against the 6 police officers involved in the arrest and subsequent death of Freddie Gray. This is a first step.It is wonderful to see the jubilation within the community but they need to be reminded that this is the first step in a long process. The cameras are here and the people are happy, but the spotlight is going to leave Charm City and the real work will begin. People will still need to state engage because while today is a victory the war has only just begun.

    You may very well see justice over the course of what will likely be considerably longer than the next few months but you might not like it. This states attorney has set herself up for failure by tacitly declaring herself an activist promising justice for Freddie Gray. Her job is to simply seek justice irrespective of whose interest is served.

    Very much like the prosecutor in the George Zimmerman trial she has levied charges that she will be unable to prove beyond a reasonable doubt making it extremely difficult to secure convictions on many of them. It is very apparent that her actions resulted from “our children” just “acting out” on the streets, attempting to quell the violence. But she has set the table for something much more violent in the future if the “children” don’t get the convictions they are demanding and expecting which is likely to be the case.
