Mosby's passion for prosecuting is evident

I am thoroughly impressed with the efforts to date of Baltimore City State's Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby. She is genuinely fueled by putting an end to the homicidal tsunami that has overwhelmed Baltimore ("Former boxing standout James Berry acquitted in 2008 double murder," April 2).

Her predecessors lacked a certain passion that Ms. Mosby has in doing their job as state's attorney. Patricia Jessamy and Gregg Bernstein were profiles in stoicism. Both had an aura of aloofness from the citizens of Baltimore. They were thoroughly detached when addressing the media, thoroughly devoid of any semblance of emotion. That is exactly what is so refreshing about Ms. Mosby. Her determination and passion to make real change in Baltimore is so very palpable, she cannot hide it.

She is also fearless, not afraid of addressing many issues that may had obviously been deemed not urgent by those before her.

Ms. Mosby sees this as a critical juncture in the annals of Baltimore history. For her efforts, she may be remembered many years from now as the state's attorney who brought real and lasting change in turning around the inexplicable bloodletting in our city.
