‘By Any Means Necessary’

Baltimore DA Caught on Tape Promising in Church to Get Justice for Black Community ‘By Any Means Necessary’

Lawyers defending the police accused in the Freddie Gray case have asked that their clients’ trials be moved outside of Baltimore so that the accused officers can have at least some chance of a fair trial.
In a just-filed petition to the court, they also once again asked Baltimore District attorney Marilyn Mosby to recuse herself from the trial citing her extreme anti-cop bias that she has displayed.
The defense petition comes at the same time a new video has come to light showing Mosby preaching in a black Baltimore church while the investigation into Freddie Gray’s death had not even been concluded.
First, Mosby tells those gathered that the criminal justice system had “historically and disproportionately” affected communities of color.
Then, speaking of the riots, she said that the images seen in the news were due to that “frustration.”
Mosby then promised, “So we will pursue justice by any and all means necessary.”
According to legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano, those remarks alone should raise serious questions if Mosby can fairly try the case against the accused officers no matter where the case is ultimately tried.
