Alan Dershowitz Reacts To Marilyn Mosby’s Charges Against Balimore Police Officers: "This Is A Very Sad Day For Justice"

“Today had nothing to do with justice; today was crowd-control. Everything was motivated by a threat of riots and a desire to prevent riots....You cannot allow police officers or any other defendants to become scapegoats for crowds who are demanding a continuation of rioting…

American Thinker
Attorney Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax in an interview that it was a "sad day for justice" when the states' attorney indicted 6 Baltimore policemen in the death of Freddie Gray.

Alan Dershowitz really went after Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby today forcharging the six cops involved in the death ofFreddie Gray, saying it was entirely based on politics and “crowd control.”

Dershowitz lamented that “this is a very sad day for justice” and told Steve Malzberg that Mosby acted out of a “desire to prevent riots.” It will be “virtually impossible,” he predicted, for the six officers involved to get a fair trial.

And as for murder charges, Dershowitz said there’s “no plausible, hypothetical, conceivable case for murder” and “this is a show trial.” He predicted that Mosby might get removed as prosecutor and Baltimore citizens may get upset if and/or when they “move to a place with a different demographic.”

He concluded that it’s “unlikely they’ll get any convictions in this case” and if they do they’ll likely “be reversed on appeal.”


Ed Henry To Josh Earnest: VP Biden Talks About 'War With Iran,' How Come It's 'Bellicose Rhetoric' When Republicans Do the Same?

The administration came down hard on a few Republicans who talked about 'war with Iran,' especially John McCain in 2008. Yet VP Joe Biden gave a speech Thursday night in Washington saying "There’s nothing simple, minimal or predictable about a war with Iran, but if required, it will happen. It is a risk that we may yet have to take should Iran rush to a bomb”

Isis Leader Al-Baghdadi Incapacitated With Spinal Injuries After Air Strike

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi wounded in a U.S. airstrike in March

The leader of the Islamic State (Isis), Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi remains incapacitated due to suspected spinal damage and is being treated by two doctors who travel to his hideout from the group’s stronghold of Mosul, the Guardian has learned.

More than two months after being injured in a US air strike in north-western Iraq, the self-proclaimed caliph is yet to resume command of the terror group that has been rampaging through Iraq and Syria since June last year. Three sources close to Isis have confirmed that Baghdadi’s wounds could mean he will never again lead the organisation.

Isis is now being led by a long-term senior official, Abu Alaa al-Afri, who had been appointed deputy leader when his predecessor was killed by an air strike late last year.

Details of Baghdadi’s condition, and of the physicians treating him, have emerged since the Guardian revealed he had been seriously wounded on 18 March in an air strike that killed three men he was travelling with. The attack took place in al-Baaj, 80 miles (128km) west of Mosul.

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke on Criminal Charges Against Baltimore Police Officers: "I Think This Is Very Political" (VIDEO)

CLARKE: "The State Attorney needs to remember she represents the State, not a protest movement!"

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. talked to Stuart Varney this morning on Fox Business Network after criminal charges were announced against six Baltimore police officers in the death of Freddie Gray.

State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby said this morning that the medical examiner ruled Gray’s death a homicide.

The charges against the six officers ranged from second-degree murder, to involuntary manslaughter to assault.

Clarke said the charges seem politically motivated, but emphasized that the judicial process must be allowed to play out.

"I think this is very political. From the tone of her voice, [Mosby] sounded almost exuberant in her announcement when she really needs to remember that she represents the state in this, not a protest movement, and not trying to appease an angry crowd," said Clarke.

Democrat Lincoln Chafee Blasts Hillary Clinton, Says She Had No Accomplishments As Secretary of State

Chafee on CNBC Squawk Box says not so fast on Clinton being the Dem nominee

Former Sen. Lincoln Chafee said he is not convinced Hillary Clinton will be the presidential nominee for the Democratic Party.

Clinton faces a primary challenge from Sen. Bernie Sanders and potentially Chafee himself.

When asked about Clinton being pushed further to the left, Chafee brought up the scandals surrounding the Clinton Foundation and lack of accomplishments.

“I would argue that between what’s happening internationally in her tenure as Secretary of State, no real accomplishments, and now these new allegations coming out about the Clinton foundation and the book coming out next week. These are real,” Chafee said

25% of Americans Say Baltimore Unrest is Legitimate Protest, 63% Say It Is Criminal Activity

46% of Americans say the violence in Baltimore will  make things worse, not better

Americans view the recent rioting in Baltimore as criminal behavior, not legitimate protest, and think it will only worsen the criminal justice situation in the city.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 25% of American Adults consider the mob violence in Baltimore that followed the funeral of a black man who died in police custody to be primarily legitimate outrage. 63% instead characterize it as mostly criminals taking advantage of the situation. 12% are not sure.

By comparison, when rioting flared up in Ferguson, Missouri last August following the shooting of a young black man by a white police officer, 25% said it was primarily legitimate outrage, while 52% saw it mostly as criminal behavior.

But as in most questions related to the criminal justice system, there is a clear racial difference of opinion. Fifty-five percent (55%) of black adults view the mob violence in Baltimore as mostly legitimate outrage. Sixty-eight percent (68%) of white and 64% of other minority Americans consider it primarily criminals taking advantage of the situation.
