    It sounds like the driver of the paddy wagon was charged with 2nd degree homicide. One of the thoughts was if he went back into that paddy wagon head first.

    These officers are pretty screwed. It doesn't sound like they had a basis for the arrest to begin with. Larry's earlier posting of this blog/article gives a very good description of what has been going on. https://www.themarshallproject.org/2...more-s-anguish

    I just turned on the TV for the first time since early this morning and that was the first thing I saw and thought the same thing. But it is what it is and only she has all of the information to reach the conclusion she did.

Governor Hogan did the same, but some of the others - I'm thinking first and foremost about the mayor of Baltimore - left a lot to be desired.

    EDIT: To reflect that Ms. Mosby is State's Attorney for Baltimore rather than Maryland.
    The governor at no point has looked or sounded like a leader. He stumbled over answers, whispered answers, didn't answer and at each occasion has looked like he just rolled out of bed. If you are the leader; act, sound and look like it. This isn't a natural disaster where its ok to walk the streets in a windbreaker and slacks.

    This was his first crisis...so hopefully he will learn from it.

    Baltimore went from a lawless burning wreck to under control in less than 20 hours. He was prepared and waiting for the required call. Compared with every other "leader" involved, he appears to be the only competent one.
    There are only two possibilities; one is that we are alone in the universe, the other is that we are not.
    Both are terrifying.

    I guess he should take lessons from the mayor.

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.
    What bad thing did you do?

    At some point a search warrant application was leaked on which an officer claimed that a witness who had been in the vehicle with Mr. Gray said that he heard noises which made it seem like Mr. Gray was trying to injure himself. The suggestion was that he, Mr. Gray, had intentionally caused the fatal injury himself.

    That planted story, as it felt like it was, never made much sense. Now it seems even more certain to have been made up.
    Nearly all success in electoral politics boils down to convincing people that you recognize that they are not the problem, that someone or something else is.

    now its your turn to have faith in the justice system. The DA brought these charges based on the facts as presented by the police. Just because you dont like the result you are claiming some sort of unfairness, just like you all claimed the protestors would if they didn't get a result they like.....
    I have faith in the system but not in that DA. She is trying to stop the riots and doesn't mind giving up a few cops to do it.

    Hey TJ, what about the mayor who snuck out the back door with good ol' Al when she was asked questions she didn't want to answer.

    Race is huge in this. Just heard a BPD veteran interview on Hannity with his voice disguised say he was pretty sure it was 3/3, and that that will factor in during this process. The State Attorney, while very clear and concise during her presser this morning, sounded like nothing other than making a political statement to sooth the black community.

    The officer, in talking with a few of the now accused, was told they witnessed what was a drug transaction passed hand to hand between Gray and another individual. That's why they chased him down for their probable cause.

    We'll see how it all shakes out.
