Mosby doesn’t un­der­stand her job

Baltimore Sun - - FROM PAGE ONE - Lau­rence M. Katz, Bal­ti­more The writer is dean emer­i­tus of the Univer­sity of Bal­ti­more School of Law.

Bal­ti­more City State’s At­tor­ney Mar­i­lyn J. Mosby has a warped and dan­ger­ous view of her job (“Mosby says that jus­tice pre­vailed in Gray case,” Sept. 20). The pub­lic re­lies on its elected pros­e­cu­tor to use her pros­e­cu­to­rial author­ity when, in her pro­fes­sional judg­ment, the de­fen­dant has com­mit­ted a prov­able crime.

It is not enough that she be­lieves “that what hap­pened (to Fred­die Gray) will never take place in the City of Bal­ti­more again as a re­sult of those charges.” As was shown in court, the charges were not prov­able.
