It seemed to the rest of the world that the case against the 6 police officers involved in the incident that ended with the death of suspect Freddie Gray while in police custody was stacked against the interests of justice from the outset.
Case in point is the infamous statement from State Attorney Marilyn Mosby where she told the people of Baltimore that “our time is now,” implying that this was the opportunity for black citizens to somehow get justice for all the wrongs committed against them by police.
Of course, when social justice warriors talk about “justice” they aren’t talking about any form of actual justice, they mean “the outcome that we want.” Which is why people will still riot even after the evidence proves that police were not at fault.
The Daily Caller reports that:
Two Baltimore cops charged in the death of Freddie Gray have filed suit against Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby for defamation.
Sgt. Alicia White and Officer William Porter filed suit on May 2, according to court documents obtained by The Baltimore Sun. They allege in the suit Mosby publicly made false claims about the officers at a press conference May 1, 2015, and that the harsh charges and Mosby’s tough rhetoric after Gray’s death were to keep the peace at their expense after riots ravaged the city.
The lawsuit demands $75,000 per each count, two counts of defamation and two counts of invasion of privacy. “They exposed plaintiffs to public scorn, hatred and contempt, thereby discouraging others in the community from having a favorable opinion or associating with plaintiffs,” the lawsuit says.
Do you think these cases have any chance of going forward? Should they, as Greta points out below, gone after Mosby for malicious prosecution?
