VIDEO: Freddie Gray Cast: More Mosby Incendiary Statements

VIDEO: Freddie Gray Cast: More Mosby Incendiary Statements

Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby: “Justice: by any and all means necessary.”

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.

There’s also word that “community organizers” are signing up people to voter rolls for the express purpose of being potential jurors for the LEO trials.

Who ever heard of that in American history?

    MouseTheLuckyDog in reply to Ragspierre. | May 29, 2015 at 1:03 pm

    Hmm. What needs to happen is someone like O’Keefe get some documentation, then the “organizers” can go to prison and the judge would be virtual forced to grant the change in venue motion.

      mariner in reply to MouseTheLuckyDog. | May 29, 2015 at 1:05 pm

      What makes you think anyone would be even charged with a crime, much less go to prison, even if O’Keefe had it all on video?

        MouseTheLuckyDog in reply to mariner. | May 29, 2015 at 1:15 pm

        TBPTG most certainly condone such jury tampering, but they cannot be seen to be condoning it. For plausible deniability to remain intact they would have to prosecute anyone caught out in the open.

        Ragspierre in reply to mariner. | May 29, 2015 at 1:20 pm

        Mouse, there’s nothing illegal about signing up voters.

        What it DOES show is that there are forces in Baltimore who are ready to use any means…fair or foul…to get somebody over the dead Fred thing.

          MouseTheLuckyDog in reply to Ragspierre. | May 29, 2015 at 1:45 pm

          If it can be shown that a person is signing up people for voter rolls, so that they become potential jurors in the Grey case, so that they can vote guilty, then there is a crime being committed. Some form of jury tampering, though I’m not sure what the Baltimore/Maryland laws say about that.

          Midwest Rhino in reply to Ragspierre. | May 29, 2015 at 5:34 pm

          or .. never let a crisis go to waste. Use it to sign up enraged minorities that will reliably vote Democrat.

        MattMusson in reply to mariner. | May 29, 2015 at 1:52 pm

        I am quite certain that if O’Keefe got the goods on Mosby an idictment would be returned promptly… against O’Keefe!

      Where’s the ‘FBI’ when you need them . Oh . Thats right . There watching us !!

      JackRussellTerrierist in reply to MouseTheLuckyDog. | May 29, 2015 at 8:59 pm

      O’Keefe doesn’t have the right skin color to infiltrate.

    Estragon in reply to Ragspierre. | May 29, 2015 at 3:50 pm

    Maryland is one of the states that still draws juries from voter rolls. Many states have gone to DMV lists instead because it was suspected people didn’t register to vote just to avoid jury duty.

    Personally, I was happy when those people weren’t voting.

“Justice, by any and all means necessary,” explains very nicely her “bold and novel” charging of completely inapposite “crimes”.

Especially coupled with her weaknessessssss as a lawyer.

What happened to the separation of church and state? Can I get an amen?

    Right? No Marie Harf sound alike here. Pacing back and forth and sermonizing. Maybe she missed her true calling.

      Ragspierre in reply to eMVeeH. | May 29, 2015 at 1:31 pm

      Look up a vid of MoooOOOooochelle’s Tuskegee speech. She goes full Rev. Wright, down to the cadence and the hand gestures.

      She didn’t sit in the congregation, marinating in that hate, for nothing.

Mosby by her comments is tainting the jury pool. A change of venue is essential for justice to have any chance. Politically, Mosby earns points for commenting in a consistent vein. If there is a change of venue, Mosby is well insulated from a verdict she doesn’t like and can crow in victory if the verdict is as she likes. No-lose situation for Mosby if there is a change of venue.

    factsaregood in reply to LTMG. | May 29, 2015 at 2:15 pm

    Agree on need for venue change. Not so sure that if it is granted, the prosecutor is in a no loose situation. If she fails to get any convictions against all or most of the six officers in a court outside of Baltimore, she will be criticized for over-charging. If the charges against all or most of the officers are initially or eventually dismissed for lack of evidence, she will look even worse.

      Evidence? EVIDENCE? We don’t need to stinkin’ evidence! 🙂

      So far as I can see, the only “evidence” is that Freddy Gray died of complications following a spinal injury.

      A spinal injury that could as easily have been caused by Gray, lawfully shackled hand and foot, attempting to stand up in a moving van and falling over as a result of the van’s totally normal movement over the roadways as it could have been caused by police malfeasance.

      Anybody who has ever tried to stand unsupported on a moving streetcar, subway, tram, or bus understands this, and THEY were not shackled hand and foot (probably).

        Estragon in reply to Andrew Branca. | May 29, 2015 at 3:53 pm

        That’s why I think she is crazy to fight recusal. If another prosecutor loses her case, she’s still a hero to the mob. As it is, an impartial judge might find some stern words of admonition for Little Miss Sharpton Wannabe 2015.

    JackRussellTerrierist in reply to LTMG. | May 29, 2015 at 9:10 pm

    There’s no guarantee that the change of venue ill be granted, no matter how obvious the need for it is. I don’t know much about MD, but it appears to be at least as whacked out as my home state of California, only with an even more obvious racial factor. But changes of venue work well there because of the state’s sheer size. Where in a tiny state such as MD will the 6 fare any better?

      Having ridden my motorcycle through MD many times, I can assure you that the state is remarkably diverse in terms of demographics as well as diversity. Outside of Baltimore and maybe one or two other urban centers, it’s remarkably bucolic.

      –Andrew, @LawSelfDefense

      There are pretty much no guarantees of anything in court.

      You just go and make a well-founded case for things, like this change of venue, and you offer the judge a chance to make the right ruling or establish error on the record.

      In this matter, it is something that can be taken up with the appellate courts, too, pre-trial.

      Here, I’d say the likelihood is strong that a change will be granted. Nobody in the Maryland bar…with a few obvious exceptions…wants this trial MORE tainted than it already has been, and there’s just no reasonable question as to the matter of the Baltimore jury pool having been influenced already.

        JackRussellTerrierist in reply to Ragspierre. | May 29, 2015 at 11:20 pm

        I sure do hope you’re right. I can’t help but think that the ones who gave this woman her license to practice law are from basically the same ilk who sit the benches.

        I’m anxious to find out who the judge(s) will be.

MouseTheLuckyDog | May 29, 2015 at 12:50 pm

Nit. The change of venue motion was filed 2 or three days ago.

The channeling of Al Sharpton is strong in this one.

Shades of civil war. Her remarks are perfectly reasonable in a combat role, where due process is a casualty of circumstance.

Charging cops with crimes is easy. Convicting them of crimes is not.

    Estragon in reply to AdamVant. | May 29, 2015 at 3:54 pm

    Not if you can stack the jury. Watch her argue that asking potential jurors if they’ve ever been arrested or convicted of crimes is “racist.”

Henry Hawkins | May 29, 2015 at 2:17 pm

It may be that she wants a change of venue so when these trumped up charges fall apart, it happens in someone else’s jurisdiction. Change of venue as passing the buck.

    Estragon in reply to Henry Hawkins. | May 29, 2015 at 3:55 pm

    Wouldn’t it be easier to just accept recusal and hand the case off? She’s already a Racial Justice Hero for overcharging, why risk tarnishing her reputation by losing it?

    JackRussellTerrierist in reply to Henry Hawkins. | May 29, 2015 at 11:24 pm

    Sure, but she’ll still have the stench of whatever BS she presented to the GJ to contend with.

Gaaad… what recourse is there for the accused?

DINORightMarie | May 29, 2015 at 3:07 pm

Where did Ms. Mosby go to law school? Who were her mentors?

There was a clip found of her when she was much younger (17 I believe) when she was on TV with Judge Judy.

Apparently her younger self didn’t have problems with seeing justice meted out, regardless of race of the judge or others involved.

What changed her? My guess is the leftist university system, which pushes social justice and the redefinition of racism…..but that is just a guess. It would be good to investigate and discover, IMHO – where did this hate, this “by any means necessary” apparently anti-white bias come from?

    Estragon in reply to DINORightMarie. | May 29, 2015 at 3:58 pm

    Boston College Law. They must be SO proud!

      You know how it is. She’s a two-fer. They’ll just shrug it off as the cost of religious fealty.

      Just an anecdote, in my law school class we had perhaps a half-dozen black students. Five of these were American born. One came from Trinidad.

      That guy from Trinidad was sharp as a knife. Sharper than me, and with far less advantageous an upbringing. Today I’d hire him in a second (though affording him might be a challenge).

      The others were worthless as law students, so probably as lawyers as well. I doubt they ever practiced law, or even passed the bar, given that simple literacy seemed a serious challenge. Fortunately (ha-ha) there are so MANY government jobs for JDs of the right sort.

        Wait, wait you mean you have personal knowledge of an immigrant who came here legally and managed to make himself a success? Man that’s like finding the white whale!

        amwick in reply to Andrew Branca. | May 29, 2015 at 5:27 pm

        So are you saying outright that Maryily Mosby is incompetent? Sure seems that way to me, incompetent with an agenda is a dangerous thing. In the meantime, innocent people in Baltimore are effing getting murdered. Children for God’s sake.. Sorry AB.. it must be really frustrating for professionals to be on the sideline and watch this SNAFU. At least you can explain it to the rest of us.

          Haha, I’ve long since learned not to get overly perturbed about events I can’t influence.

          This is all Mosby, all the time. I’ll leave it with her.

          Doesn’t mean I can’t ridicule from a safe distance. 🙂

MouseTheLuckyDog | May 29, 2015 at 3:31 pm

So do the other motions have to be resubmitted? Or are they passed on to the Circuit Court from the District Court?

If they need to be refiled, why hasn’t the defense refiled them already? ( Those that are not moot, )

I’m particular interested in the motion to have the grand jury proceedings recorded. I think it can be shown that motion was filed before the case was presented to the grand jury. With that in view, Mosby either has to produce those transcripts, and if they don’t exist she may be facing a motion to set aside the grand jury findings.

I know that those motions are a bit sloppy ion retrospect, but the reason they are sloppy is that the defense had to rely on the public information, rather then what was turned over by the prosecutor’s office. It seems the PA hasn’t been coorperating with the defense at all.

My understanding is that in civil court, both sides are supposed to be civil. Yes there are arguments over what has to be turned over, but when the issues are trivial they are supposed to work them out between themselves. For example, a judge should not have to hear a motion that one side has not turned over their final witness list by the deadline. That sort of thing should be worked out without the judge,

The defense should not have to file a motion to inspect the knife. The defense should have gotten the ME’s report when the charges were brought.

Even in the Zimmerman trial, you some disagreements between BDLR and MOMm where the judge puit the issue aside, and in the next recess they worked it out between themselves. ( Usually by O’Mara showing BDLR some evidence or notation.)

It is obvious from here statement that she can’t do all that is necessary “Right now” but just give her a year or two and she will run for a big political office. That’s all this is. She is going to become the new US Senator from MD next year. When you consider the percentage of black voters in MD plus the flaming liberals she is a shoe in.

MouseTheLuckyDog | May 30, 2015 at 12:20 am

Despite growing disbelief Mosby is sticking to the hacking story:

http://dailycaller.com/2015/05/29/marilyn-mosby-sticks-to-twitter-hack-claim-says-she-does-not-endorse-anti-cop-anti-white-tweets/

In related news, Apperson today had a hearing. ( Fee guess who the presiding judge was. ) The technology was misdescribed in court before, and it turns out Zimmeerman will not have to reveal his address. So Judge Debbie ordered Apperson to wear an anklet “right now”. haven’t seen the included video, ( am downloading the court hearing ), so don’t know what the results are.

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/trayvon-martin-george-zimmerman/os-george-zimmerman-matthew-apperson-bond-hearing-20150529-story.html

Hopefully the likes of this sick woman will learn first-hand that what goes around, comes around — by any and all means necessary.

Once the events of Baltimore are settled and over, I suspect Baltimore will be a bit poorer, more beset with crime, less middle class white and a great deal more Blue State dysfunctional…if that can be possible.
