Marilyn Mosby ORDERED Cops To Ramp Up Drug Patrols In Area Where Freddie Gray Was Arrested

In March, Marilyn Mosby directed Baltimore police to ramp up narcotics patrols with increased “targeting” at an intersection near where Freddie Gray was later arrested, according to an email from an official in the Baltimore city state’s attorney’s office.

“State’s Attorney Mosby asked me to look into community concerns regarding drug dealing in the area of North Ave and Mount St,” wrote Joshua Rosenblatt, the division chief of Crime Strategies Unit, in a March 17 email to Western District police commander Major Osborne Robinson, a Western District police commander.

The Baltimore Sun reported the email, which was contained in a motion filed Tuesday by the attorneys for the six officers arrested for Gray’s April 12 arrest and his April 19 death. Gray was arrested after running from police just two blocks from the intersection identified for targeting by Mosby.

In the email, Rosenblatt wrote that police should address crime by “targeting that intersection for enhanced prosecutorial (and hopefully police) attention.”

Mosby’s instructions to Rosenblatt are significant because they indicate that the officers who chased and arrested Gray may have been acting on orders from their commanders and not out of their own ill intent.

Adding even more significance to the email is that one of the three bicycle patrol officers charged in the case, Lt. Brian Rice, was instructed by Robinson — via Mosby — to undertake a “daily narcotics initiative” focused on the intersection.

Robinson forwarded Rosenblatt’s email on March 20 to Rice and several other Western officers. According to the attorneys’ motion, Robinson instructed officers that “effective immediately” they should collect “daily measurables” — seemingly a reference to arrests and recovery of drugs and weapons.

Rice stands charged with manslaughter, second-degree assault and misconduct in office. Mosby has publicly stated that Rice and two other patrol officers, Edward Nero and Garrett Miller, illegally arrested Gray.

“It must be understood that Mrs. Mosby was directing these officers to one of the highest crime intersections in Baltimore City and asking them to make arrests, conduct surveillance, and stop crime,” the officers’ attorneys wrote in their motion, according to The Sun.

Gray had a long criminal history, including a drug arrest on March 20, the very same day that Robinson forwarded Rosenblatt’s email to Nero and other Western officers....

She needs to step down. Now she's become a witness for the defense. She sends out an order to crack down on Freddie's drug corner, and when he gets arrested there, she sues the police she sent out to do it in the first place for false arrest.

So she actually did something right, no doubt by accident.

Like oBAMA she is totally out of her depth and also like

oBAMA can't admit she's wrong. This is a disturbing trend

in black elected officials lately.
