In a case that has received far more public attention than it should, a state’s public prosecutor, Marilyn Mosby, is trying to make a celebrity sensation out of herself while staying in the spotlight. After one of the most notorious, multiply convicted street thugs in Baltimore history ended up dying while resisting arrest while being arrested for the nearly fortieth time in his life, the black lives matter domestic terrorist group came running, because this vile criminal happened to be black, and Prosecutor Mosby has been feeding the flames of this hate group with a personal witch hunt against the outstanding law enforcement officers who were doing their job and who had detained the vile Gray, ever since.
However, the judge overseeing the case just handed down a decree that will at least slow down Miss Mosby’s witch hunt.
A judge on Wednesday rejected prosecutors’ request that a Baltimore policeman facing retrial over the death of black detainee Freddie Gray be forced to testify in the trials of his fellow officers.
Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Barry Williams said the motion by the state compelling testimony by Officer William Porter appeared to be a “stall tactic” since it would have indefinitely postponed the trials of all six officers charged in Gray’s death last April.
Joseph Murtha, Porter’s attorney, told Judge Williams the prosecution wanted to “take him hostage in five cases … they want to torture him in his own trial with the threat of perjury.”
Porter was the first officer to be tried, but his trial on involuntary manslaughter and other charges ended in a hung jury last month. A retrial is set for June.
