Marilyn Mosby has barely been in office four months and already she has a case that has received national attention. Mosby is the Baltimore State’s Attorney who will be prosecuting the six officers involved in the death of unarmed Black male Freddie Gray. Gray died in police custody in circumstances that have now been ruled a homicide. Mosby, age 35, won election to the office in 2014 after a contentious campaign, before her election she had never held an elected office.

Prior to her winning she was an insurance lawyer for Liberty Mutual Insurance and before that she worked for five years as an assistant state’s attorney. Mosby is married to Baltimore City councilman Nick Mosby who represents the West Baltimore area that has been the scene of recent protests over the death of Freddie Gray.

For Marilyn Mosby, law enforcement is not new, both her parents were police officers as well as her late grandfather. Mosby also has been a personal victim of crime as she witnessed the violent death of a family member outside of her home when she was younger. Mosby is a mother of two daughters and a product of HBCU Tuskegee University where she met her husband.  At the age of 35, she is the youngest chief prosecutor of a major city and she stated in her acceptance speech “As a black woman who understands just how much the criminal justice system disproportionately affects communities of color, I will seek justice on your behalf”.

Now that time has come for the young prosecutor as not only Baltimore but the America looks to her for justice for Freddie Gray.

    PLEASE stop putting that dark gradient fade on the pictures. It distorts and darkens the pictures and thus makes them hard to view.

    Every time she says she has five generations of police officers makes me sick. AND MAYBE SHE HATES THEM. I know she would not be the first person in history to hate her relatives.

    Good grief ≥>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>!

    Nothing says “black lives matter” more than blacks destroying their own neighborhoods and black owned businesses. Also nothing says fair is fair more than an Attorney General saying she is going to find justice for that young man Freddy Gray instead of what a real AG would say and that is she will get to the bottom of the case and find justice for all involved.

    “Now that time has come for the young prosecutor as not only Baltimore but the America looks to her for justice for the citizens of Baltimore.” FIFY.

    Fortunately for the officers she charged, her total incompetence will result in acquittals.

    This was always about politics. This isn’t about justice, but about racial politics.

    She used to be black, now she is more of a yellow color from skin bleaching.
