Fox host Megyn Kelly had a segment on last night in which she played video of public statements made by Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby regarding the Freddy Gray case

In the video clip Mosby calls for “Justice, by any and all means necessary,” echoing Malcolm X.

And here’s a few seconds of discussion of the subject between Kelly and Fox contributor Judge Napolitano:

It is noteworthy that these statements were made on April 28, prior to the completion of even the preliminary investigation, and just days before Mosby’s bizarre May 1 public declaration of a raft of charges against the six police officers accused of responsibility for Gray’s death.

Such conduct by Mosby is being cited by defense attorneys for the six officers in their motion, filed yesterday, to move the prospective trial to another venue, outside the city of Baltimore.  They have previously filed motions to have Mosby recused from the case, as covered by Legal Insurrection here:  Freddie Gray Case: Detailed Analysis of Motion to Recuse Prosecutor.

Also shocking is the vicious tone of the remarks–this is what a Social Justice Warrior prosecutor looks like, I suppose:

The whole video segment is worth a watch.
