In light of the complete failure of District Attorney Joe Early to push for more jail time for cop killer Jorge Zambrano, we wanted to highlight this verdict from yesterday, in which Baltimore Police Officer Edward Nero was found not guilty for his role in the death of repeat offender Freddie Gray. Mr. Gray, who had a rap sheet just as long as Zambrano, made eye contact with officer Nero and immediately began to run. When he and another officer gave chase they arrested him and found a knife on him. He was put into the police van where he was given a “rough ride,” not shackled as he was supposed to be, and allegedly not given access to his inhaler. He died several days later of spine injuries.
Here’s the arrest video:
Officer Nero is the one on the right holding up Freddie Gray by the armpits as he screamed, supposedly because he was in pain:
As you saw on that video the police officers were hounded by an angry mob as they attempted to do their job. Pretty standard because of the culture that has been fostered by our gutless leaders. Poor Freddie Gray got a boo-boo because he ran from the police instead of just talking to them. As you can see, there was clearly nothing on that video that could get officer Nero put in jail. But it didn’t stop overzealous District Attorney Marilyn Mosby from catering to the mob by indicting SIX police officers in the death of Freddie Gray.
Basically what she did was throw them a bone so they’d stop looting. She knew that there was a 0.0% chance Officer Nero would be found guilty for any sort of crime. She’s just building up her resume so she can run for higher office. She knows dumb people will thank for her trying and she can blame someone else for her own failures.
What exactly did Nero do wrong? He saw a guy, who he knew was a drug dealer from working the beat in that neighborhood, and he ran after him after he ran away from them. Because that’s what you do when you see a drug dealer run away from you. You run after them. At worst it was an unlawful arrest. But you don’t get indicted for that.
Most legal experts agree that all six Baltimore Police officers will be found not guilty as well. This is just an other gutless political DA standing up for criminals instead of police officers.
Anyway, the mob of Baltimore got what it wanted right? A police officer was indicted for something he shouldn’t have been and he had his day in court. Oh wait, what’s that? You mean people are STILL mad about this? Shocking:
LOL. White people. They’re hilarious sometimes. Mary Wallace just trying so hard to show people of color that she’s one of the good ones. She’s RAGED!!!! She really cares about you guys!!! That’s why she wants drug dealers like Freddie Gray to be alive so they can poison black neighborhoods with drugs!!! Check out Mary’s Facebook page. Not a single black person in any of her pictures. She is a rural hippie who intentionally segregates herself from people of color, but she calls due process “white supremacy” so she’s down for the cause!!
The judge who found Officer Nero not guilty is black. The mayor is black. The DA is black. Three of the six police officers on trial are black. Almost everyone who died from the poison that Freddie Gray sold the community was black. But please, tell me more about how a lack of diversity is the reason that black folks are getting a raw deal.
So let me get this straight. A police officer was held responsible for a death, indicted, had evidence presented against him by the state, and received a fair and just verdict. And someone this is considered “injustice” because these fools didn’t get the verdict that the mob demanded without knowing any facts. Makes sense.
The criminal justice system does need to change. If Freddie Gray was in jail instead of being allowed to sell poison to the community then he’d be alive today. If Freddie Gray had simply cooperated with the cops then he’d be alive today. We need more people in jail and less drug dealers roaming the streets!!
Anyway, this is the mentality of so many Americans right now and it has permeated into mainstream politics and society. This is Hillary Clinton’s platform on criminal reform according to her campaign’s website:
She will “end the era of mass incarceration.” Translation – we’re gonna stop sending people to jail. Because there aren’t nearly enough Jorge Zambrano’s on the street. “Non-violent” crimes like cocaine trafficking aren’t a big deal. Too many “non-violent” people who profit off of ruining other people’s lives and often killing them are in prison. When District Attorneys like Joe Early and Marilyn Mosby (who are elected machine politicians themselves) see this the message is clear – the boss is telling me to stop pushing for harsh sentences. And if they want the machine’s backing then they will do as they are commanded.
And people think Trump is the scary one? Don’t get me wrong, we still think Trump is a joke. But we have a candidate for president who wants more Jorge Zambrano’s on the street and wants to waste our time prosecuting police officers like Edward Nero who do their job in the most dangerous neighborhoods in America. They’ve helped to create a culture where you can block a major interstate and not go to jail for it. They’e fostered an environment where you can get the DA to to do what you want by burning down a CVS. They’ve ensured that violent repeat offenders like Zambrano are amongst us and can kill with impunity.
But yea, tell me more about how I should be scared of Trump.
P.S. For fans of The Wire, the greatest show ever made, this is the man representing Freddie Gray’s family:
For the record he said he was satisfied with the verdict because justice was served. But he actually played himself in The Wire in representing scheming corrupt State Senator Clay Davis. Even if you never watched the show you can appreciate this scene, because it’s one of the greatest in the history of television:
