Baltimore state’s attorney and chief city prosecutor Marilyn J. Mosby is under fire by the Fraternal Order of Police for her connection to the attorney representing Freddie Gray Jr’s family. On Friday, May 1, Mosby, 35, acted swiftly and some would deem severely in the charges brought against six officers for their involvement in the death of Gray, 25, this past April. Mosby has held her office for six month. Her mentor, who made a financial contribution to her campaign for her current office, is Billy Murphy. He is representing the Gray family in its civil case against Baltimore after its loved one sustained a fatal spinal cord injury while in police custody.

Mosby ruled Gray’s death a homicide and order the arrest of six officers, Caesar Goodson, Brian Rice, Alicia White, Garrett Miller, William Porter and Edward Nero.

    if this is the very first time that there EVER have been such connections, conflicts or leanings, then this letter may carry weight…but somehow I have a feeling that it’s just the first time that BLACKS have been in this position, and that it’s been going on with White prosecutors from day one.

    Are you serious? Ms Mosby, is doing her job and the coroner report say that Freddie Gray death was a homicide (murdered). Ms Mosby, is suppose to prosecute who ever committed this crime. I pray for this woman that she keep her job because she is doing justice for this man family. “GOD” bless her!

      Homicide DOES NOT equal “Murder”.

      I find it hard to believe that if 6 Black teenagers were charged with the murder of one person that you would be as gunho as you appear.

      Ms Mosby should have gone more narrow and focused on finding WHO is culpable for the injuries and not who interacted with Freddie Gray during the process of taking him into custody.

        What you need to do is get you a dictionary and look up the word homicide…before you say it doesn’t equal to “Murder”. Freddie Gray, didn’t kill himself. Bye Bye!

    I tell you this is some bull. What else should she have done? The coroner says it is a homicide. Duh.

      That’s what I’m saying…Ms Mosby got the coroner report and that’s say it all. Just because they are police officers they should get a slap on the hands? I don’t think so…murder is murder, I don’t care who they are.

    Evidently the cops thought they were going to get away with it like they always have in the past. So who runs the city, the cops? I hear that most of them don’t even live in the city. And I’m not surprised that half of the offenders are black. Once in blue they will do anything the other do to get a long.

    People. Learn something!!! Every Homicide IS NOT a murder. Although the term homicide is sometimes used synonymously with murder, homicide is broader in scope than murder. Murder is a form of criminal homicide; other forms of homicide might not constitute criminal acts

      What homaicide mean.

      • Constructive_Feedback on May 6, 2015 at 4:36 pm

        This definition is WRONG.

        Homicide only means “A Death What Is Attributable To The Actions Or Neglect Of Another Person”.

        The fact that the definition said “Unlawful” makes it wrong.

        “Unlawful” is the judgment of the legal process after the fact.

        “Self Defense” produces a “Homicide” but it is not an “Illegal Death”

    THANK YOU FOR BREAKING DOWN homocide , its murder the deliberate act of murdering a person .. infact there were IM ASHAME 3 blacks were involved . thats a set up to make it look better for the police dept ..
    the issue is these cops deliberately beat this boy to death and the fact they were caught desturbs the out of the paternal order of police .. they are like the kkk always lickin ass with the grand jury in every city assuring that they can keep cops on jobs INSTEAD OF PUTTING THE VICTIMS FIRST !! we are fed up with this miscarriage of justice and if there had been a black city prosecutor on the DARREN WILSON MIKE BROWN KILLING TRUST ME WE WOULD NOT BE HERE GRIEVING ANOTHER YOUNG BLACK MAN MURDERED BY A BUNCH OF .. desperate low wage , miserable with their jobs cops . . WHO THE HELL WANTS THAT JOB ? THE REASON THEY ALWAYS LETTING THEM GET AWAY WITH IT .. IS BECAUSE THAT JOB IS ONE OF THE WORST AND MOST HATED IN THE COUNTRY … no wonder they at the donut shop daily , , they are not allowed to patrol stores restaurants , banks etc .. cause no crimes woulld come through if that was the case . .. they wait on some petty crime by a black man to rush over and cease opportunity to kill someone and be EXERNORATED . THEY THINK WE ARE CRIMINALS .they are the real criminals in america . mostly white, cops black men and women do not want this job . …. its embarrassing for your family if your a cop now , your kids have nothing to be proud of and more and more blacks will not want this job in the future . .. why do we want to work somewhere that our own race is jeapardized , mistreated ,and disgraced killed , murdered and brutalized .. its rare a black cop is involved and i bet they dragg those 3 black cops in it to make it look , not so bad .. huh? well its bad ”
    save your cleaver hollywood skits we know them white cops killed this boy … maybe the black ones drove the car and didnt report it but the white cops are the murderers here .. LET THE PROSECUTOR DO HER JOB . DONT MAKE US MARCH ON THAT TOO .
