[Live Stream]Breaking Baltimore!!: Mayor Calls For Killer Cops to Be Charged, Protesters Take To The Streets
The announcement of the charges being filed against all six police officers involved in the alleged homicide comes only one day after the Baltimore Police Department completed its initial investigation into Gray’s death and handed over its findings to Mosby’s office. Mosby, who has been on the job for only a few months, indicated her investigators have been conducted their own probe into Gray’s mysterious death, even as Baltimore police wee investigating.
The prosecutor’s swift announcement, according to the Baltimore Sun report, drew sharp criticism from the president of the local Fraternal Order of Police, FOP Lodge 3. In an open letter to the state’s attorney, Gene Ryan noted what he claimed is a conflict of interest in Mosby’s prosecution of the case because she’s married to Baltimore City Councilman Nick Mosby:
“Most importantly, it is clear that your husband’s political future will be directly impacted, for better or worse, by the outcome of your investigation,” the letter states. “In order to avoid any appearance of impropriety or a violation of the Professional Rules of Professional Responsibilty, I ask that you appoint a Special Prosecutor to determine whether or not any charges should be filed.”
The FOP’s request for appointment of a Special Prosecutor was denied.
Upon the Announcement, protesters filled the streets of Baltimore.
