I have left the coverage of the prosecution of six police officers in the Freddie Gray case to Andrew Branca. He had almost 100 posts.

As with the Geroge Zimmerman, Michael Dunn and other trials, Andrew did a superb job.

From the start of the prosecutions in the Freddie Gray case, Andrew called BS on the charges. One of his early posts on May 1, 2015, was Freddie Gray Cops Charges – Justice or Political Theater?


… it strikes me as even less of a foundation for the charges brought here than was the evidentiary foundation for the second degree murder charge brought by Florida Prosecutor Angela Corey against George Zimmerman in the self-defense shooting of Trayvon Martin.

And we all remember how that ended:  Zimmerman Verdict Reached: NOT GUILTY.

The dropping of all charges this morning against the remaining defendants, after three acquittals, is a vindication of Andrew’s analysis.

It’s also nice to see his hard work and analysis recognized once again.

Mosby’s press conference after dropping the charges was all fury, as if she thought ending the case the way she started it would save her legacy:

I don’t think I’ve said a lot about the prosecutions to date.

So let me give you my highly refined take, after careful consideration and with due respect to our adversarial system and the important role played by prosecutors:

Mosby, you have shamed your office in pursuing policitally-motivated prosecutions in order to appease a mob of rioters and hooligans who threatened to burn Baltimore down. You could have been honorable and brave and stood up to the mob, but instead you sought quiet instead of justice. Perhaps you had greater political ambitions, or just were a coward. Either way, you disgraced yourself. You are a joke, a laughingstock, to be remembered as we now remember Mike Nifong. Congratulations.
