Who needs an impartial State’s Attorney when you have Marilyn Mosby? There are a lot of people in the chain of command being exposed for their inexperience in the Baltimore area, but at this point, could Baltimore be beyond damage control?
Small business owners effected by the, as former liberal official Keiffer Mitchell politically called it, “Baltimore Uprising”, will try to clean up with a few SBA loans. Hopefully these will fall into that loan pile that the SBA overlooks ever so often. However, the property damage caused by the looters, I apologize, “thugs given room to destroy”, is only the tip of the iceberg. The Baltimore City curfew cost hundreds of bars and restaurants, trickling down to the innocent server trying to earn a socially acceptable living. Not only did the curfew disrupt operations, it was the weekend of the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight. Some bars prepaid $5,000 for a fight that never made it to their 23 flat screens.
I originally had high hopes for recently appointed Mosby, unlike Mayor Rawlings-Blake, she seemed confident and knowledgeable of the law. It wasn’t the charges against the six officers that made me uneasy, it was the statement directed to the protestors, “I heard your calls of no justice, no peace”. Whether Mosby made that statement to calm the storm, or because she truly believes convictions equal justice before a complete investigation, it was relayed in poor judgment. A State’s Attorney shouldn’t hear anyone; she should only pay attention to the facts.
More poor judgment was displayed Mother’s Day by the attorney when she attended the “Rally4Peace” concert assembled by Prince in honor of Freddy Gray. Yes, the victim of the case in which the fate of her career rides. Not just attending the Prince concert, Mosby sat on stage as the honorable guest for the concert in honor of Freddy Gray. Troubling to say the least, her husband, Nick Mosby, a Councilman in Baltimore City, gave her the tickets as a gift. A seasoned Councilman should know better, then again, this is Baltimore.
