As of Thursday morning, Baltimore prosecutor Marilyn Mosby is batting 0-3 in the Freddie Gray cases. If she had an ounce of decency and a smidgeon of professionalism she would ask that the three remaining prosecutions be dismissed and would resign her office.
Caesar Goodson, the Baltimore police officer who drove the van in which Freddie Gray was injured and subsequently died, was acquitted Thursday on seven felony counts and one misdemeanor. Add this to Officer Edward Nero’s acquittal on all counts a couple of weeks ago, and William Porter’s case ending in a hung jury last December and Mosby has more than a little egg on her face. Goodson’s case was the lynchpin of the misguided and politically-motivated prosecution of the six officers, and his acquittal throws Mosby’s effort in to complete disarray.
